I'd like to sell my phone and get a different one. However, my contract ends towards the end of next year, and that's a bit too long Would I be able to sell the phone, but obviously keep the contract...? Or anyone who's done this before and knows it wont cause a problem?

Yes you can! That's fine to do.

ALWAYS shop around being signing a contract. Check:

Yes you can sell the phone if it's on contract, I did this with my iPhone 5 a couple of weeks ago no problem. You will of course need to still pay the rest of the contract, but you can just put your contract SIM into your new phone and will work.

Yes you can though might want to check if the phone is network locked and whether or not it could be unlocked.

The phone may be locked to the original network, but apart from that they wouldn't know.

You can since the sim card is the contact thing not the phone, as said it may be locked to the network you got it from (try a sim card from another network)(friends, family, etc)) Oh and if insurance is included it's with the original phone not the new one
