Your written notice may be given before the minimum term expires but it will not take effect until on or after expiry of the minimum contract term.
9.2 Mobile contract phones and packages are completely dependent on the tariff and minimum contract term selected by you, therefore:-
9.2.1 If you disconnect from the network or otherwise terminate the contract within the minimum contract term for any reason, you will be liable to discharge the following costs (to the extent that they apply to your tariff):
a) The minimum cost of your handset; plus
b) The line rental due for the remainder of the minimum term; plus
c) A proportionate reimbursement for any free gifts and/or cashback received by you; plus
d) An amount equivalent to your average monthly contract overspend for the remainder of the minimum contract term; plus
e) Any additional charges or costs incurred by us and/or your network provider as a result of the contract coming to an end early, such as administration costs and loss of income for the remainder of the minimum contract term.
9.2.2 In the event that any sums due to us on your account are outstanding and become overdue, we reserve the right to refer the matter to our debt collection agency, which will incur additional costs, to be payable by you. Any costs incurred to collect the debt will be added to your debt balance, plus VAT at the prevailing rate. You agree that you will be legally liable to pay us these additional costs, and that recovery of same can be enforced against you in court or by other formal debt recovery action.
