    That's actually not true, the market is polarising across 12 and 24 month contracts (which a whole bunch of 1 month coming in as well)

    I echo the comment about the contract phone market. To get an affordable tariff in UK you need to sign up to a contract of either 18 months or 24 months which makes the initial outlay of the phone affordable... otherwise you hundreds for the phone, and a lot each month for very little. The networks have us over a barrel !

    Pay as you go phones are always 12months out of date anyway, thus pushing you towards the contract market, and also tend to be expensive.

    The contract length is the only reason I have been forced to hold onto my piece of crap Samsung for so long.

    So perhaps the phone companies need to be lobbying the networks or even bypassing them somehow.
