Are previous consumer (phone) contracts superseded when you take out a new one?

Recommended Posts

So I'm just about to upgrade my phone and broadband service, which involves taking out a new 18 month contract. It's a completely new agreement, made with no reference to the previous contract (definitely not a variation or modification), and there's no whole agreement clause. It directly replaces the services I was getting previously (and adds a few more), but my question is what happens to the status of the old contract? It doesn't seem to be formally terminated in any way, so is it in any way still enforceable? It still had 6 months or so to run before I actioned the upgrade.


My practical question is, if I vary the service under the terms of the new contract, might they turn round and say - "ah - you're getting a better deal than you were before, so we're going to enforce the old contract"? Has the old contract been extinguished by entering into a new one to provide the same services? Or is it still floating around somewhere?

moved to the telecom forum 

if its the same provider it should cease, why not ask them?

there is one thread here of recent whereby an old contract didn't get cancelled through a mistake by the provider.



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
