Default upgrading charges

hi,just found this forum so bare with me,i just phoned orange to get my upgrade after my 24 months are due up next month and the guy i spoke to said the s3 was 250 to upgrade yet i can buy it on gumtree for that without contract,i then said it was too expensive and i can buy the nexus 4 for 240 and go with any carrier i please but he wouldnt budge,then i checked on their site and i can get iphone 5 for free but i have to pay for s2 and s3(i have s2)so i suppose my question is,has anyone got the i5 and if so is the sim the same size as others as i will get i5 then sell it and make a profit when i buy the phone i want...pheww sounded better in my head

Hi tonybhoy - welcome to the forums... thanks for joining!

I did see this yesterday and was meaning to answer when I got home from work (slipped my mind).

I am not sure how many people frequent the carrier sub-forums, which could be why you have not had an answer

I am a little surprised that the phones are THAT expensive. I have had a look on Orange's website, as I am due an upgrade in March and the phones do seem a little expensive!

I am not sure if the SIM is the same size as an iPhone 5... their SIM cards are usually smaller than other phones, but I am sure you can buy a SIM card adapter, so your SIM would be able to be used in a phone that takes normal sized SIM cards

The SGS3 uses a micro SIM and the iPhone 5 uses a nano SIM.

The difference in size is quite substantial: Nano SIM vs Micro SIM size comparison (just how small is it?) - TodaysiPhone.com

You get adaptors, I'm not sure how good they are though.

As I am sure you are aware, Orange are now EE. I have just been looking on the EE website and found deals that aren't as expensive as they appear on the Orange website, so you might like to check this out
