I'm with Orange and want to swap my phone for a slightly cheaper phone (a blackberry - but not because of the price) - is there any way I can do this on my current contract? Or can I sell it now or swap it in a shop?
phone them up and give it a go, normally they will make you wait untill about 3 months before your contact ends before you can downgrade it (but you don't get another phone). so its worth a try but i can't see it
If it's a case of reducing minutes only, you shouldn't need to wait that long. I could reduce mine after 9 months (of a 2 year contract) with O2. I would guess that other networks are similar, but they only allow it once to the tariff one below the one you're on.
