Pay monthly BlackBerry Z10

Hello Everybody

 

On Sunday I thought I'd go mad and get the new BlackBerry Z10 on O2 On contract. Being 19 I thought I wouldn't have a hope in hell in getting a contract as I have no credit history. Blow and behold I get an email saying my Z10 is being dispatched and will be in store on Wednesday, followed by a email today saying its being dispatched soon To my local store. Is that it? have I been accepted ?  Also if I have can I send a mate to get it for me?

Re: Pay monthly BlackBerry Z10

Pretty sure they'll only release the phone to you. You could phone ahead and give permission which might work.

Well done on passing the credit check:smileyhappy: you certainly are a lucky guy:smileyhappy:

I expect a review from you:smileyhappy: it's such a tempting phone.

Re: Pay monthly BlackBerry Z10

Do you need a credit check for a contract these days? I did not actually know that :smileytongue: When I was 18, I got my first contract for 24 months with o2 and I had no credit history either. Maybe I was lucky too?

 

Yeah, i expect that is it all fine and if that's what they've said, that's what will happen. They may ask you to prove your identity and what-not but if you were declined, you would have been told by now I'm sure and they wouldn't bother shipping your phone.

 

Either way, I have a BB Z10 and I LOVE it. I really hope you enjoy your new phone :smileyhappy:

Indeed its much more of a crack down these days. I got my first contract 12 month for a iPhone without problem. Next year I'm expected to pay £300 deposit on an upgrade :smileysad:

Re: Pay monthly BlackBerry Z10

Oh really? Not even if I gave my friend my passport and/a bank statement? I will phone ahead and see if my friend can.

I'm surprised I've passed.

I will review it! I've used iPhones, androids and BlackBerrys and this looks the best. Might be doing an unboxing video if that interests you?. I will be interesting to see what's in the box

Re: Pay monthly BlackBerry Z10

Please do I'd defiantly be interested:smileyhappy: it's a very good looking phone.

Your friend will probably need something to prove he's your mate if they agree to it.

You can get the stores number from here if you don't already have it;

I look forward to your review:smileyhappy:
