    Well do you want to cancel? or do you just want to lower your costs by moving to a sim only without a phone?

    What's your current usage at the moment? Mins/texts/data?
    I am on unlimited texts and 600mins. Data, no idea. Probably 500mb.

    I am based mainly at home where I connect to home free wifi, which I don't pay for on my tariff obviously, so really I would only use data when at work, travelling on trains etc.

    If you're happy with the O2 network. Then Tesco (who also run on the O2 network) do a good deal for £12.50pm on a 12 month contract where you get 500 mins/5000 texts and Blackberry services. Yes it's a 12 month contract so you'll have to wait 11 months if you want a free phone.

    Alternatively, you can switch networks for some better deals. but with a blackberry that's the best deal i can think of off the top of my head.

    You just ring up O2 customer services (202) and ask them for a PAC number. Then sign up for the tariff with tesco, when your tesco sim arrives in the post you can ring up tesco CS and give them the PAC number, they'll transfer your number over to the new tesco sim within 24 hours.

    If you think you might want a new phone now, then tell me which one you want, how much you want to pay, and i'll give you a rough estimate.

    I want ideally an iPhone 5, which has to be contract (cannot afford the price of a handset now). I don't want to pay any more than I am at the moment (£32 p/m). Preferrably on 02.

    Well you can always ring up O2 customer service and ask to speak to their retentions team. They might be able to do a good deal for you on the iPhone 5. Some third party websites like Mobiles.co.uk are offering the iPhone 5 for £27pm + £99 upfront.

    Carphone warehouse may be able to match this deal, they were doing it a while back so may still be doing it now.

    T-Mobile are currently 500 mins & Unlimited data/texts for £26pm + £90 upfront via mobiles.co.uk

    I bough my iPhone 4 for £230 before Christmas, and honestly the only difference between 4 and 4s is the camera, so yes they are worth buying, they are still very fast and can run all the apps on the App Store

    What's the newest Samsung Galaxy and is that better value than the iPhone 5?
