Do any networks let you upgrade mid-contract?

24 months is a long time to have one mobile. Do any networks let you trade in your old phone mid-contract?? If not, they should!

It's easy enough to say that they should allow you to upgrade mid contract, but the cost of the phone is built in to the price. If you didn't need a handset you'd be looking at sim only prices. Cheap phones are barely much more than the cost of a sim only deal, and likewise monthly cost can be kept down by spreading your deal over 24 months. If you want to change your phone sooner then don't get a 24 month contract. Plus looking it another way 24 months is no time at all compared with my Dad who's Nokia is now 8 years old and still going strong. It's charge lasts for a week and still does exactly what he wants it to do.
Alternatively, sell you handset and buy another 'more modern' one. I bet you'll feel better but won't actually be any better off.
