    Hi all,

    currently with Orange on a Nokia 6680, 500 mins + 100 txts @ £30 a month and want to get a new phone, preferably in the N range.

    Phoned up Orange and asked about what my upgrade options were, not much it seems, the free upgrade on specific phones were not great and the N series were £100 upwards. As well this I would be signing up to a new 12/18 month contract.

    However I don't why I can't just cancel this contract and go and get a new subsidised phone and probably a better contract.

    Thoughts ?

    Call Orange back but go through to cancellations rather than upgrades, mention you want a particular phone and you have seen better deals on other networks than the upgrade deal you were offered.

    leeky_deeky is right. It is also your opportunity to ask for more minutes. Generally the Orange retention team will do what they can to keep you with Orange.

    I want to get the N95 on Orange 12 month contract and only want the Canary £30 tariff (or maybe the Racoon £35). Does anyone know where the cheapest offer is?

    Orange online are charging £130 for the handset on the Canary tariff and £90 for the handset on the Racoon offer. Other third party companies must be selling the handsets cheaper than this (although I can't seem to find any!)...
