I've got four months left on my Vodafone contract. Is there any way I can reduce it to the lowest monthly tarrif or will I have to buy out the remainder of the contract?

can you even move down a tariff? i thought you could only move up... since if your on like an iphone contract could you not just end up moving down to the lowest tariff and ending up with a rediculously awesome price...

If you're on an eighteen month contract you can drop it down after twelve months.

I dropped on last year and the salesgirl dropped it straight from £45 to £15, even though I think it's supposed to be a £5 drop per month.

spider what was the original contract and phone, and at stage did you end up moving down from 45 to 15

Unless its changed recently, you can only move down one tier each month. So, if you were on 45 (as above) it would take you 6 months to get to 15 quid...

Just got off the phone. Sneaky sods. When my original 18 month contract ran out, instead of taking out an upgrade, I stuck with my old phone so they gave me 50% off my contract taking it down to £12.50 a month. They told me I could drop my contract down BUT the 50% discount would be taken off making my contract go back UP to £25 a month then they could reduce it by £5 a month! I'm better off diverting my calls to my new phone and and paying the last 4 months of my Vodafone contract at £12.50 a month!

I was on a Blackberry tariff with a Curve 8310 and I signed up for a new contract for the same amount for an N97 (knowing that I would have to pay off the difference). I think I had 4 months left.

I went into Vodafone and told them I wanted to drop my tariff (fully expecting it to be a tier a month) and she came back and said she'd been able to lower it straight down to £15 because the 'computer had let her'. It was probably a glitch in the system but I didn't complain lol!

I was told later that you have the biggest chance of this happening by going into store, apparently customer services will never do this.
