Guess that means we can't switch out the SIM card when on a trip to a foreign country... until the contract is up.

 
I agree this is a wishy washy (read: political) solution. With the speed of tech advances in the mobile environment, most consumers are upgrading their phone the minute their contract is over. Right into a new contract. Along with most providers not giving you any discount on the plan if you provide your own phone. I mean, that is worked into the contract right? You pay off a little of the phone each month until it is phased out and replaced?
 
However, if you contact your provider and explain the situation. They are usually happy to work with you as long as you are in good standing and have been a customer with them for a year.
