Welcome to Vodafone Community
i think if want to upgrade early or if u see a different phone u want you should be able to upgrade when ever you need too , dispite your in a contract. i just got my samsung s7 in january but im wanting the samsung s8 but cant till 2019 by then a different phone will be out. maybe you should put an option to upgrade sooner without paying your contract up. especially if your sticking with the same network
These phones are not cheap @TraceyRothera and cost the Networks to supply them as part of a full contract.
My Samsung Galaxy s8 cost £600+, which was purchased sim free from Samsung.
The network has a subsidy to recoup which is why the 2 year contracts are in place and they offer flexi upgrades.
That or a person can after their contract has run its term drop to a SIM Only or Payg and buy the phone of choice.
Hmmm, a company gives you a £700-£1000 phone for nothing, then 10 months later, after you've paid about £300.00 you want another £700+ phone for free..... then you do the same in another few months? I think the words "get real" spring to mind.
If you want to change phones that often you will either need to buy one SIM free and get a SIM only contract I'm afraid.
