Upgrading during 24 month contract

I currently have a 24 month contract in which I have an iPhone 5c and pay $70 a month. I really want to upgrade my phone now but still have 7 months left for my contract, can I upgrade now without having to pay for the phone now and just continue to pay it off in a new contract or something? 


Any help or informatin is appreciated. Thanks!

Nit that easy as you've signed a contract.. They'd be early termination fees, remanding handset repayments to pays ect.. If the want is more the the need it could be cheaper to purchase outright and sell the current device.
