Phone Upgrade Question

So, my upgrade period started today, I've been looking at deals. My question is:

If I upgrade various places want a min. of 50 per month.

But, if I want to stay with the same network and just get a new phone and tariff it's about 10 less per month.

Can I do Option 2 now or would I have to use the Upgrade prices or wait until September when the current contract completely ends?

It's a while since I've upgraded as usually go the contract sim way but with September barely five weeks away it may be better to wait until the contract ends? This way you can call them with the 'my contract has ended and I've been looking around, what can you do for me?' routine. even if they won't budge on the phones there may be leeway on the plans available to you. There's nothing to stop you spotting a bargain deal before September with someone else taking the contract and porting your number when yours finishes although there may be overlapping payments new deals sometimes come with cashback deals through the provider or third party sites like Quidco/TCB.

My 21 EE contract came to an end and their cheapest sim only was about the same price. I signed up for a 7 quid deal on Virgin. When I phoned to tell EE not to bother persuading me they matched it.

I was offered an early change-up deal and now have a superior phone and 30gb extra data for just 2 a month more than my old deal.

Very pleased with the new deal with Virgin Mobile.

Can you go sim only for a few months and then look for an upgrade on Black Friday. They were doing ludicrous deals last year. I got an iPhone XR with 100gb a month data for 36 a month and nothing up front.

If you find online only retailers you can get a few good deals. I got a S10 cheap on Affordable Mobiles, there's also a few similar out there.
