Upgrade Advice Please

I have a few months back upgraded to the Iphone. I have this week received a letter from O2 offering me another upgrade but there is a catch.
If I upgrade I wont be able to use my Iphone anymore because going the other phones have a different tariff.
1--Will I be able to Jailbreak my Iphone and use it anyway? (Ideally I want to get the Nokia N96 for my husband and keep my Iphone)
2--Also if it is possible to Jailbreak the iphone would I be able to use the new O2 phonecard that they will supply me with the new phone?

Many thanks!

Come on guys, you can comment on all sort of things on this forum but when a "real" question is posted everyone is quite? Or do you want to keep all your knowledge for yourselves? :roll:

Hello,
how do you get to upgrade twice in a few months?
I just upgraded to an Iphone online when I was told in the shop and on the phone that I would have to wait for May. Could I aplpy for an upgrade in May? Now that'd be cool.
You an jailbreak your iphone and use it with any SIM, or keep it as it is and use it with any o2 SIM so you should be alright.
Just be careful as you might not have unlimited internet data usage on your new SIM.

How did you manage this?

My contract ends in May so I have been told I can upgrade instore/online/over phone in April.

I cant find any way to get it to go through earlier - when I go through the upgrade section it tells me I cannot be upgraded online and to phone them.

What knowledge are you reffering to exactly?

I thought Jailbreaking did not unlock the iPhone? You have to Jailbreak to then be able to UNLOCK it no?

Anyway you should be able to stick any O2 sim in the phone (as the first poster said ...try it now) and it should work... it is only tied to the carrier (O2) not 1 specific Sim Card... so what more would you like to know exactly...?

Yeah with O2 I thought you can only upgrade YOUR HANDSET one month earlier than when your current contract expires (unless you just want to upgrade your tarrif)... I don't know about online or over the phone I always go to an O2 store and sort things out there.
