    yes, they may not give it to you. if they do you'll be paying a crap load for it and your new contract length will also be added onto your current one.

    so lets say you just do a straight upgrade, that'll stick another 24 months onto your contract. leaving you with a phone contract with 33 months left on it.... which is frankly a ridiculous length

    sell your current one and try buy one outright?

    you may be able to get a reduced price on the phone if you buy it through your network too.

    i lost my iphone, bought it through three and got it for £470 when it would have been £612 from apple. massive saving
