    ok, the thing is this:

    i want to know how to kinda get rid of a (new) phone contract without getting in trouble.

    here's the facts.
    currently not in my "home" country so i'll go back to it pretty soon.
    now what bothers me is. if i open a new phone contract with my current bank details in current country and i get the phone and all the contract stuff, but after a month no more payments are made, how much it can reach out to me.

    do they have some special blacklist or be able to contact in like whole europe with other banks so if i try to get anything with sort of contracts in my own country, that it'll be denied?

    I am asking about an iphone, are they able to kinda lock it - kinda apple itunes thing.

    How far can i come into trouble with this.

    Anyone did something like that already? How to avoid them and co?

    I didn't do anything so far. Im in the UK.

    if you just need a phone for a month why do you need an iphone? Just get a normal phone on a month to month...

    ok, the thing is, get the iphone cheap, go to my homecountry, take it with me and use it there

    i just saw, carphonewarehouse has some insurance where you can end the contract early, anyone tried this already? if so, what do their usually charge if you are not going to return the mobile phone, as well as what's the conditions?
