Help when applying for a mobile phone with No Credit:
Below are a few ways in which you can increase your chances or find out where you have gone wrong when applying in the past.
Not on electoral role
If you have moved home many times, been to university then you may not be registered on the electoral role. This is essential for applying for mortgages and can also impact mobile phone contract applications.
How to fix? – Visit aboutmyvote.co.uk to print out a registration form and then you can apply to be put on the register. (Check your credit report for free after about a month to see if you have been added)
Never had a Credit Card
If you have not had any sort of credit in the past then the likelihood is that your credit file will be rather bare. This makes it incredibly difficult for companies to assess whether you will pay or whether you can afford to pay.
How to fix? – Apply for a credit card or an overdraft and use it but make sure you can pay it back otherwise you may end up with another problem entirely. It will take several months for a credit card to show up on your credit file so be patient.
Not applied for a mobile phone before
If you have not credit then you won’t have had a mobile contract before and so mobile companies will be wary to accept. However there are ways to help improve your chances.
Alternatively other fixes are to try out a Sim only deal. Sim only contracts have the pricing benefits of a regular mobile contract without the expensive handset. Sim Only contracts are offered by all providers but from experience and research T -Mobile Sim Only have the best chance of successful connection.
