@Upgrade1 Usually you would have to pay off your device plan first in order to upgrade but it's always worth a call to customer services on 202 to see if they will do anything for you.

Depending on the nature of how the phone is knackered you may have consumer rights above and beyond any warranty provided though they would have to be taken up with the retailer you purchased the handset from which may or may not be O2
Failing that you could try for a 5th line if you weren’t in a position to upgrade putting that line on as low an airtime plan as possible and using your existing sim with the device until the contract expired but that could prove to be a costly approach depending on what handset you wanted
