I emailed my electoral role application back to my council a few weeks ago and got confirmation of receipt but I will double check on monday. Thing is I've been told I can't apply again for 30 days so I'm going to be without a phone for a month which is not a good situation. I'm thinking O2 have refused me as I have just moved, am divorced and work part time! I shouldn't have been so honest! If they looked further than the end of their noses they would see I have several credit cards which are all paid off in full each month and I have never defaulted on any bill. I'm appalled by them to be honest! Thanks for your response!
It will be a combination of a new address i.e. not being there long enough and working part-time. I've personally had this from the bank for a rejected loan is that if you work under 16 hours then they refuse you even if you have proof of sufficient funds!
If its an electoral roll issue then it could be you missed the last registration period which I suspect the agencies used as a baseline for their records. How often they update that is unknown.
There's also the other factor of being a good payer. Several other posters have remarked they have a good history but have been rejected. Problem is we live in a debt culture so having some form of debt is better than having no debts in the eyes of credit referrals.
Oh just thought - if you're divorced and reverted to another name then that could be another factor as effectively you haven't really existed since marriage (presuming the surname was changed).
