Is it possible to delay start date of new pay monthly contract (online deals)?

Hi I'm hoping somebody can help me in setting up my new mobile phone contract (pay monthly with a new sim card and phone).

My current contract with Orange ends 25th January 2012, but I keep seeing online deals via this site and as my contract is nearing its end date, is it possible I can go for one of them now before the deal(s) end/expire?

i.e. can I agree today to taking out a mobile contract, but delay the start date to the end of January 2012?

Any help MUCH appreciated!

Thank you :-)

The deal I would like to go for today is this one:
dialaphone.co.uk/aw2…e=1

SE Experia Arc S in White
Its on T mobile (so I'll switch from Orange and get a new SIM and phone - I prefer getting a new number every few yrs (weeds out junk/spam texts/calls!)
24 Months, 600 mins, 500 texts, ultd data for £23.03 (after £60 auto cashback)

Only prob I think I have is that if I buy it today, my contract with T-mobile would start today so I'd be paying for Orange and T-mobile contracts (an overlap of at least a month, which can't afford!)

Any ideas at all? I will try contacting Dial A Phone to see if they can delay the start date of the contract with T-mobile...
