    Yes I did this with my wife's phone on o2.
    She completed a 12 month contract + an extra 5 months. She wasn't using all
    her allocated minutes so I phoned o2 and they suggested switching to the
    simplicity sim (rolling contract) at 15 a month.
    At first I was hesitant as I thought I would get a better deal negotiating
    while currently on a contract but was told all new customers and existing
    customers were now offered the same deal regardless.
    Couple of months ago I signed her up to an o2 12 month contract with
    subsidised phone.

    The network isn't loosing any money by doing this, in fact it is in their
    interest to put you on a contract.

    Was thinking about doing this myself but decided that the network
    didn't have any handsets I wanted.

    Started off porting away from Orange to o2 400m/100t 12 month contract
    with a free handset at 35pm, after this finished migrated to o2
    Simplicity 600m/unlimited text for 25pm, have just moved to the
    latest Simplicity version that is on offer at the moment at 20pm for
    600m/500t/unlimited web/data (1000t for the online version).

    With the money I've saved I bought the handset I wanted simfree and
    unbranded.
