I'm an international undergraduate student about to graduate from Cambridge. I signed a three year contract with the 3 network for my iPhone a year ago, but am leaving the country right after graduation. I will have to pay another 20 months for the phone contract and it will be a complete waste of money, all the money I received from getting a first class degree (which I worked my butt off for) will be taken away and I will be very much in debt on top of that.
I know I was really stupid to have signed that contract; I really thought I was going to stay on in the UK to work but I haven't managed to find a job. Does anyone have any advice on what to do in this situation? The best thing I can think of is to try and find someone on 3 and transfer the contract to him/her, and offer to pay 50% of the contract to sweeten the deal. I don't personally know anyone on 3. Where I could advertise something like this?

If you have facebook, try "items for free or for sale in the Cambridgeshire area". I'm assuming that you know if you'll be able to transfer the contract to someone.
If I wasn't already a year into my own contract (with a year to go), I would have asked more details
Thanks so much for that idea! I've posted on two facebook pages. Well, according to my convo with the network, if you're staying in the UK and have an existing contract, you can add another 20 months to your one year contract (and the 20 months will be on a 50% discount as I'll pay upfront). That is if you're interested
