How much is a mobile number worth?

My last 12 month contract is up, so I can change provider etc, or otherwise pressure my current provider into giving me a new shiny phone.

In the spirit of Ticky Box - a Poll.

There are four choices:

  • Same Provider, same number, same handset
    + Same number, no hassle
    - Wrong tariff, expensive calls, no incentive, phone misbehaves after being buried overnight in beach at Whitby


  • Same provider, same number
    + Same number
    - Handset expensive (full price)


  • Same provider, new number
    + New phone for £30, nice tarrif
    - New number, hassle of change, keep me on hold for ever


  • Change provider, same number
    + New phone, same number
    - £30 punitive charge, marginally more expensive package (£1.50 over my existing provider's "new offer" but includes £2 of data).


  • Change provider, new number
    + New phone free, nice tarrif
    - New number, hassle of change

I know that I'm change averse, but how about the rest of the LJ massive?
