    I have a 24 month contract with orange, I am 18 months through it. During the time I have had my phone it has broke 3 times, and at the moment will not even turn on or do anything and has been unusable for ages. Is this a valid reason for getting out of my orange contract, or is there any other way of getting out of my orange contract without having to buy out of it and pay loads

    No, you can't. But you can upgrade in about 4 months. Did you buy it from Orange, or an independent retailer? Depending on what phone you have you might want to send it back to the manufacturer for a repair if it's a manufacturer's error.

    No, I got it from a JAG phone shop. Yeah I get an upgrade on 28th March apparently, I would like an iPhone if I am going to get an upgrade but I don't know if I get an iPhone in March whether they will let me have it for free or if I will have to pay for the handset. That's part of the reason I want to end my contract so that I can get an iPhone on o2 because they do the iPhone for free for the same amount of money I am paying for my contract now, but more minutes and same amount of messages, internet etc... and also o2 is a better service provider. I will have to pay £150 if I buy out of my contract though

    Don't buy an iPhone in March. Hold out until the following June/July (When the new iPhones are released) or you'll regret it when you get your already-nine-months-old phone.

    Ah Ok. Do you know if phone companies offer to buy people out of their contract if the person they're buying out of a contract, takes up a contract with them instead?

    Try phones for you, they used to do it I think.
