Upgrade FAQs.

What exactly is an upgrade?

Upgrading lets you get one of the latest smartphones, without paying the full cost upfront. You'll extend the length of your plan with us, and get a new handset with allowances that suit your needs. You can also keep your current number.

If you're happy with your phone but just want a new plan, you might be able to change it. You'll find more info here.

How can I find out If I'm eligible to upgrade?

Can you remind me when I'm due an upgrade?

Yes, we can send you an email to remind you when you're due an upgrade. You just need to agree to receive our marketing communications – and at the same time, you can ensure that your email address with us is valid.

You can do both these things by logging in to the iD Mobile app or My Account online, then going to the 'My Account' page, and selecting 'Edit preferences' on the 'Keep me in the loop' tab. Select 'Yes please!' to receiving marketing from us, and choose email as your preferred method.

If you're eligible, congratulations! You can now go ahead and browse through our deals and purchase an upgrade. To do this, log in to your iD Mobile app or My Account online, go to 'My Account', and then scroll down to 'My Upgrade'. Alternatively, feel free to pop into any Carphone Warehouse store for a chat.

Can I upgrade to a lower priced plan?

Yes, if eligible, you can upgrade to a lower priced plan depending on your current plan and phone. At iD we always do our best to find the best plan for you - even if it's cheaper than your current one.

What new plan or phone can I upgrade to?

That depends on your current plan, your credit rating, payment history, and also what we've got available in-store or online.

If you're eligible to upgrade, you can browse through our current deals by logging in to your iD Mobile app or My Account online, going to 'My Account', and then scrolling down to 'My Upgrade'. Alternatively, feel free to pop into any Carphone Warehouse store to chat about your options.

Can I cancel my upgrade?

What happens if I cancel my upgrade?

If you upgraded online or over the phone, you can cancel within 14 days. If you do this, you'll receive a refund and revert back to your old plan (if it's still available). If you purchased an upgrade in store, unfortunately you can't cancel it. Once cancelled, your plan will revert to the original plan that you were on.

If I upgrade earlier than the end date of my current plan, will the remaining days be added onto my new plan?

No. Your new plan will start from the moment you upgrade. You won't have to serve the remaining days on your previous plan.

I logged in to My Account online and clicked on the 'Upgrades' option in the website menu, but I'm being asked to check my eligibility first - why do I have to do this?

We need to check that you're eligible for an upgrade before we show you which deals you can go for. This is why you need to check your eligibility at this stage.

If I just buy a new plan from the website without doing an eligibility check, can I turn it into an upgrade afterwards?

No, unfortunately not. If you take out a new plan from our website, it's not classed as an upgrade. It's simply treated as a new plan, even if you're eligible for an upgrade. You'll also be unable to keep your existing iD mobile number. That's why we always recommend you upgrade via the eligibility checker.

I have an add-on on my current plan. What happens to it if I upgrade?

If you have an add-on, you can use it even after you upgrade. Your existing add-on are simply added to your new plan. If you wish to remove the add-on, you can do this by going to 'My Add-ons', selecting the add-on, and choosing the 'Remove' option.

What happens if I upgrade part of the way through my current billing month?

You'll receive a pro-rated credit for your original line rental, and a pro-rated charge for your new plan. You'll also be charged a full month's line rental in advance of your upcoming bill. And finally, any out of bundle charges for the previous month will also be applied.
