O2 Switch Up lets you change your handset whenever you want, as many times as you want. If there’s a new version of your current mobile, you can upgrade to it. If a different brand smashes it out of the park with a new phone and you want to switch to that, you can. Want a bigger phone, a smaller phone, a more powerful phone, a more beautiful phone? You can switch to it, at no extra cost beyond a bolt-on fee of just £3.99 per month. And on O2's plus Plans, it's included at no extra cost.

Does it include the big flagship phones?
