Credit checks

To take out a Pay monthly contract with us you will need to pass a credit check. We do this as a precaution against fraud as well as protecting you from signing up to a contract which you won’t be able to afford.

We will always ask your permission before requesting a credit check. If you’re buying the phone in store then they’ll let you know if you’ve passed straight away. If you’re buying online or through telesales we’ll send you an email to let you know of the outcome.

If you don’t pass then take a look here at some of other deals such as Pay as you go phones which don’t require a credit check.

Please note that taking multiple credit checks can damage your credit rating so do wait before applying for a Pay monthly contract again.
