I know there's that 3 month early free upgrade thing, but was curious can I pay to actually upgrade my phone early?

I have a 5c atm an tbh I've hated it since the first year in I had it, on a side note companies should have 12 month as well as the standard 24 months as its a bit ridiculous that we are forced to be locked down for two years if we don't like a phone.

Ok back on track, my early free upgrade thing is due in March although date isn't specified it just states that it's at March 2017

I want to upgrade to a phone I know I will actually like and enjoy which is the IPhone SE but I don't wanna wait another few months if it can be helped at all, i just really hate my 5c the speakers literally went on it less than a year in and I can only get people to hear me over the phone if it's on Loudspeaker, as well as the headphone jack died after 6 months.

Idc what the price is, if I can pay to upgrade early I'd love to do that

    Yes you can, it will be just slightly less than the total cost to see out your contract.


    On a side note, you choose to pay back your phone over whatever time you want, get your iphone on apple and pay them monthly for it over whatever period you want instead of a contract.


    If things stopped working on your phone so soon why didn't you get it fixed?

    They did 18 month contracts and stopped because no one was taking them.

    They still want same profit but over a shorter terms generally

    If you're in a position to purchase your iPhone SE outright and/or split the payments monthly you could go for a SIMO plan with Vodafone (if you're happy with them).

    However you can indeed pay an early upgrade fee; I'm no longer a Vodafone customer but I did it a couple of years ago.

    It'd mean your minimum term would increase from 24 to 27 months unless you go SIMO.

    Your not FORCED to be locked down. You can get a rolling contract and buy the phone yourself. Nothing stopping you from buying the Iphone SE now and using it with your current contract also.

    Why complain about the 5c and having a 24 month contract and then jump straight back in with the SE and another 24 month contract?

    Why not get a deal that wont lock you into a 24m contract?
