This happens most of the time if you upgrade to a newer phone unless
you upgrade in a non docomo shop and haggle. I've done it numerous
times so it works.

Regarding quitting your contract, they will ask you if you wish to
keep your phone or not. Just say you do and thats it. They ask for
the phones back because they recycle them. Before you do it ask if
you can keep it, but I did it about 3 weeks ago again and could 
keep the phones without issue.
