Yes, perfectly possible - so long as your phone's Sim format matches - micro Sim vs nano SIM, for example, @Shedden. Also an older 4G Sim may need to be changed if your new phone is 5G capable, for example.

Can you clarify your question please as I read it differently to @pgn 

If you take a refresh contract you must take a new airtime tariff too. So whilst you can use your current SIM, it will have a different tariff attached to it.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

The short answer is no

You must take a tariff if you want a new phone unless you buy the phone outright

In that case there are much cheaper ways of buying rather than through O2.
