I am a university student and will be doing a year long placement in the Netherlands starting 1st September as part of my degree. I took out a 24 month contract with vodafone in July 2009 as it was the best deal at the time and I was not expecting to be going abroad for 12 months. Obviously if I take my phone to the netherlands it will be very expensive to use and I will still have to pay the monthly fee I am paying at the moment even though I will not be able to use the inclusive texts, minutes or internet. I have phoned vodafone and they will not cancel the contract unless I pay £197, they will not lower the monthly price even though I cannot use anything I will be paying for, they only pospone contracts for people going away with the armed forces, and nobody in my family is willing to take the contract over.
Can anybody help me with this dilemma?
