If you have an o2 account, o2 will look at this when you upgrade.. they would only look at a new credit check if they needed to increase say your credit limit... the maximum your bill can reach over your calling plan....
If you are new to o2 and buy an iPhone... you buy your iphone either in store or online, go home and do it all over itunes.. This is all stated in the terms and conditions on the o2 website.
When you connect and start to go thru the new connection procedure it may ask for a depost or decline.. (I dont know anyone who has been declined?) You have something between 7-14 days to return the iphone in its box unused for a refund... it will not allow you to upload anything until you have completed the connection progress...

jesus guys dont be stupid.. you wont need a credit check when upgrading... sure you sign a new contract but they dont do another credit check because your already a customer
Actually you will be credit searched regardless of new ,old, or exsisting customer wishing to upgrade.

That being said- due to the fact that the jailbreak mod for 2.0 requires an deactivated iPhone with the firmware on it to work (unless Apple have plugged that hole in the beta firmware)- I would be VERY surprised if it doesn't change and you will have to activate it in store before leaving. Otherwise people can buy it on the cheap and sell it on for stupid amounts of money- and keeping their original phone- something I see happen all the time where I live with new top-end handsets.

It could go in the way of a store activation, but the cost would be huge to o2 to do it this way.

Regarding activation - the upgrade process is online only through O2 (not sure how CPW will do it), therefore it is likely that the phone/sim will be ready for activation when it is posted to you and that you will go online to complete activation. As you have a new 3G contract, and a 3G SIM, it is likely that your old SIM will deactivate as the new one activates, therefore you couldn't just get the phone and sell it on as you would be stuck with a 3G activated SIM and a 2G phone which won't take a 3G SIM.
