Can I access all the personal data that my mobile phone operator has accumulated, such as my text messages, and sent and received photos?

No, you cannot access personal data like text messages from your operator. Once they have been deleted from your phone, they are gone. The only information that you can access is your billing information, including the sender's phone number and the time of transmission. If you have sent or received text messages, and/or photos, it is likely that your mobile operator will keep them on their servers for a period of time that varies amongst operators. They cannot release this information to anyone, even you, without a court order.

Can I stop my mobile phone contract?

Yes, you can stop your mobile phone contract. However, if you still have time left on your mobile phone contract, and cancel it, most mobile phone operators will charge you a fee. Many operators call this an "early termination fee."

If you are at the end of your mobile phone contract, and do not wish to renew it, simply call your mobile operator and let them know. Get your cancellation in some kind of writing. Some operators may have automatic renewal built into your contract if you do not alert them by a certain date.
