Lost iPhone and can't recontract
Hello, I have had a contract from March 2014. Recently, my iphone was stolen. I have suspended my line and also filed a police complaint but chances of me getting my phone back are slim at best. I dont want to be left without a phone so the option as I see it for me is as follows - I pay retail price for a new iphone and get a new SIM. The "retail price" of phones from Starhub are much higher than whats online on the apple store. If I get a new SIM and reactivate my line and buy an unlocked phone from Apple store, would I be able to use that? Just trying to cut my losses, as this happened due to no fault of mine.
What I could gather from online sources, seems to suggest that it would work. Please advise. Any help would be much appreciated.
