Carphone Warehouse PAYG upgrades (2)

With a Carphone Warehouse PAYG upgrade, do you have to stay on the same network? Thanks!

The PAYG upgrade price is usually lower than the straight forward PAYG price, hence people wanting to buy the phones as upgrades.

If you want to change network, simply buy the phone as an upgrade (all CPW phones come unlocked anyway, as they don't know which network they'll end up being sold on) and then get a SIM card for your desired, new network separately. They're usually free if you order one online and arrive in less than a week.

Yes, you use the same SIM card as your have been.

Thanks! So you can't choose to change network - even if you want to?
