Bad Credit Mobile Phone Contract Advice
Apply direct to the mobile phone networks to have a better chance of being accepted, even if you are not approved initially chances are the network will negotiate a deal which may or may not require a security deposit. Best Networks with free phone are currently: Virgin Mobile followed by T-Mobile, Orange and Three.
If you cannot get accepted for a mobile phone choose a SIM Only Contract deal (T-Mobile SIM Only, Orange SIM Only, 3 SIM Only, Vodafone SIM Only) the credit checks are much easier only checking your identity and address. Then after 3 months you can apply for a free or subsidised mobile phone provided you have kept up your SIM only contract payments and built up some credit history.
Ensure you are listed on the electoral role at your current address, check your credit files by applying to the credit reference agencies. Equifax and Experian – these will also show your current electoral role information. Check your credit files making sure any old financial associations or incorrect information is removed.
No Credit Check Mobiles
No credit check mobile phones only exist on SheBang, PAYG and SIM Free, all other contract mobile phone providers perform credit checks or identity checks to ensure you can afford to repay the contract and that you are who you say you are. If you suffer from bad or no credit history it does not mean you will not get accepted for a mobile phone contract it simply means the number of providers that will consider your application is lower or the handsets, tariffs and contracts you can choose from are fewer.
No credit check mobile phone deals can be expensive due to the larger risk factor, but all the major UK networks offer SIM Only Contract deals (T-Mobile SIM Only, Orange SIM Only, 3 SIM Only, Vodafone SIM Only), and as stated before these offers have a small credit check and offer a stepping stone to improving your credit and getting approved for a full contract phone deal without the expense of a no credit check deal.
Sim Only Contract Deals
Sim Only Contracts offer the highest approval rates for bad credit customers. With most SIM only contracts you do not get a mobile phone, however e2Save are offering a free Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Y, Nokia Asha 300 or LG Optimus L3 with their 12 month SIM only contracts.
