Cancelling a mobile contract



  Astra Bertone Coupe
Is it possible to cancel a mobile phone contract ?

Am currently on an 18 month contract with Orange that runs out in April but the service is terrible and every month I seem to have these stupid little charges here and there as well. Am looking to move over to o2 and probably get an iPhone but a was wondering if it's as simple as walkin into the Orange shop, cancelling the contract and then going down to o2 to get sorted with a new one ?

Also, am not sure but I've heard Orange allow cancellation after a certain amount of months into the deal.

To finish off a contract early you will have to pay the remaining balance off, so say you have 6months left then all that will have to be payed off in 1 lump sum,

Hmmm maybe a should wait then and see if o2 will make their tarrifs any better when Orange and Voda get the iPhone....

I was going to do the same, but i managed to give the other contract to my mum so shes payin for the vodafone now whilst im on o2 iphone :)

What phone do you currently have GM ?

Only other way is to sell your phone, and use that money to finish the contract off :)

i've had enough of phone contracts (especially the 18month ones).
Nowadays the pay as you go deals are so good i think thats what i'll do next.
However if you're after a fancy/newest phone then contracts make sense.

Contract is the only way for me really other than paying ridiculous money to buy an unlocked iPhone.

Ye its £7.50 a month iirc, they will go through it with you in-store, for some reason i have 1200mins 500txts, other way round i want it, i barely use 15min a month :eek:

Same mate, am barely ever on the phone, only really use texts. Am not sure wether to wait till Orange get it and see if a can get any sort of decent deal cause even on the £35 tarrif, the phone still costs nearly 100 bucks.

Yee, tbh im not sure why o2 have set stupid amounts of Minuted tbh, but i am tempted to go in and see if they could change it, minde they will most probably charge me for doing it...

Is it the 32gb 3gs you been looking at? i had to pay £96quid or something like that for it, but i got it through the post reasonably quick
 
  Astra Bertone Coupe
Aye the 32GB 3GS mate. Is it £96 with the £35 tarrif ? If thats the case a might see if they'll throw in the bolt on for free although a doubt I'll have much luck :(
 
  Astra 1.9Cdti SRi
No its £96 with the 44quid tariff iirc,

Best to have a chat in store fella, see what they can do for your likeing :)
