Upgrade price is the same as new customer price

I am eligible for an upgrade and have been out of contract since July. The quoted upgrade prices are the same as new customer/non-upgrade prices. Why is this? What is an upgrade if it has no monetary value?

If I don't need a new phone, surely it would simply be better to move to a sim only or prepay?

I don't see any incentive or advantage to upgrading when I could save myself the contract costs until I decide to get a new phone and then just get it at the same price as anyone who upgrades.

@SMM Hello there 👋 let's have a look at this for you. Tell me, are you logged into My3 when you looking at the upgrade prices? The price of the phone is dependant on your price plan, the higher the plan the less you pay for your upgrade.

Hi Laur,

I checked both, logged in and not. As you can see from the attached screen shots the prices are the same for the same phone

@SMM Good morning. That's correct, as both new customers and upgrading customers are agreeing to the same new price plan or monthly spend for 24 months then the phone price is the same. On Prepay however that phone is €859.99 so there is a significant discount for being on Billpay 👌

I understand that both are signing up to the same price for the same period of time. My question is what does an upgrade mean, if it has no financial value? There is no advantage to being a loyal customer.
