Default Contracts, do you get to keep the phone at the end?

I'm currently on PAYG but thinking of getting a small use contract with my
current provider, O2. I find their site a bit hard to navigate, so I'm just
wondering what's in the small print as regards who owns the phone at the end
of a contract. I suppose this may be a general question on contract phones
in general, with all networks? So basically, when the contract is up and
people talk of 'upgrading'.....does that mean you get to keep your old
phone, or do you have to give it back to the company in order to get the
upgrade?

I guess it sounds like a dumb question, but I've never even researched a
contract till now, so I wouldn't have a clue.

Thanks.

Always better to ask first rather than grumble later. ;-)

The handset generally forms no part of the contract, and is yours to do with
as you wish at any time.

Its nice to see someone reply with courtesy on Usenet for a change, rather
that the usual rudeness that some people come by when they see a newbie like
this.

Well done ZoŽ I suppose someone will say this is off topic now.

The phone is yours to do with as you wish from the start of the
