    If I'm just four months into my o2 contract, can I get the new 3G phone when it comes out in June? If so, how??

    Most likely. All you have to do is shell out another few hundred £ and transfer the contract, I figure.

    You can buy a new one every day if you want…
    Just transfer the SIM, activate and all is fine.

    That's all I had to do when I upgraded from an 8GB to the 16GB. Buy the iPhone and transfer the service to the new one via iTunes..

    It's now reactivated under another number.

    So does your contract reset when you upgrade your phone?

    I'm almost one year into a two year contract.

    With o2 I am not sure, with AT&T you can upgrade an iPhone any number of times and not start a new contract.

    Sell it, or give it to someone, like any other phone.

    Yes it resets to 2 yrs from the date of activation of the new iPhone.

    AT&T has said that a contract will not start over when you upgrade iPhones. Therfore you keep the same contract.

    It's O2, not AT&T, so I don't know if it works the same way.

    Yes, it does start over, since my wife and I just got off the phone with AT&T, but we did get a nice Freebie phone as a back-up for one of our (3) iPhones! (SORRY, you're correct, AT&T will not renew the contract for upgrades to existing customers, my BAD! She bought and upgraded to the iPhone from a Motorola KRZR.). :eek::eek::eek:
