Hi, I was just wondering if I can pay to upgrade my contract early. I recently lost my Sony phone that wasn't insured and I got a new one and I miss my old phone. My contract ends next year, in March/April. And I know my friend is on Orange and he got a new phone by either upgrading his contract or buying out of his current one.

Re: Upgrading

Yes you can buy out of your contract to renew it at anytime. You pay the months remaining times by your monthly line rental.

Re: Upgrading

If you have over 12 months to run on your contract you may find it cheaper just purchasing a phone and carrying on with the same sim/contract.
