I am on contract with EE which is fine but do not like the samsung galaxy ace 4 phone. Can I buy a sim free basic phone and insert sim to use until end of contract?

Linda, that should be OK. The new phone may require a different sized sim card (the Ace 4 uses a micro SIM), but you ought to be able to get a free sim card from EE if required.
