The phone is yours to keep and do whatever you want with it, and it always has been. The phone and the contract are entirely separate.
The only way to leave a contract is to pay the early termination fee which is the monthly cost less the VAT for the remaining months and a 2% discount. With such a long time to go that is going to be expensive, but you could sell the phone to fund it if you needed to.
You can transfer the contract to someone else as long as they pass Vodafone's credit check.
