As the UK arrival of the iPhone looms, I find myself becoming worried about the contract implications of iPhone 2, which will, inevitably, appear sometime during 2008. Since we will all be buying this iconic gizmo outright, rather than receiving it at a discounted cost or even free (the usual arrangement in the UK with contract phones), common sense (not to say natural justice) would justice that when the extra whizzy iPhone 2 appears, there will be nothing to stop us simply selling the current model, if we so desire, and transferring our part-way-through-the-contract sims into the new one. But I'm worried that Apple/ O2/ AT&T etc will instead try and pull some sort of stunt, like insisting we start brand new contracts with iPhone 2, and/ or (the horror!) charging some kind of contract cancellation fee. Imagine if iPhone 2 was announced at MacWorld in January for instance - that's just eight weeks or so away... I did try asking an O2 helpline person about this, but naturally just got the usual robotic disclaimers Not everyone will be concerned about this issue, of course, but Mac-heads and technology fans (and I definitely fit into the latter categories) will want to upgrade. Thoughts welcome!
