defnately mate... call em up!

Might be a crime to suggest it, but if you can, at all poss live without it for a week, (oh the shame lol) then you'll get a better deal if you can wait.
And, whatever you do, don't tell them you're phone is bust, cos they then have you over a barrel.
If you have a week left, i'd pac code them and see what they offer......

You are entitled to give 30 days notice to cancel so since that has passed, the OP can phone now anyway.

If he calls and asks for a PAC, he will be asked why he wants to leave and can give some story about found a better deal elsewhere (which wouldnt be a lie - 'cos there will be loads around. Probably an idea to have one up his sleave!)

He will then be put through to retentions, who will try to offer a better deal. Dont accept the first one.... keep haggling. You may get lucky and if you are happy with the offer, will get the phone sent straight away.
