If you are an iPhone 3G owners still under contract with O2 for your current device, it looks like you are stuck with your iPhone 3G until your contract ends or you pay the termination fee. O2 is not budging on the its stance of not letting 3G customers out of contracts to upgrade.
O2's GM Steve Alder has said that it's not viable to let iPhone 3G users upgrade early. “Having subsidised much (or all – depending on tariff) of the price of a customer's iPhone 3G, we simply cannot justify invalidating that contract and subsidise a second device for the same customer.
Alder points out that like any other O2 phone user iPhone owners might be eligible for an early upgrade if they spent over £35 on their contract. Early upgrades can be offered from 1 to 6 months before the contract expires depending on how much the plan costs.
