I've been an O2 Pay Monthly customer since April. I'm thinking of getting an LTE tablet which would mean a second line. Do you have to be an O2 customer for a certain period of time (I.e 6 months) before applying for a second line? I used to be an O2 Pay Monthly customer for many years but switched to EE around 8 years ago. Not sure whether that would make any difference? Thanks.

The only factor is your credit rating so if it's good, you'll not have a problem.

I know some networks don't allow you (regardless of your credit rating) to take a second line until after like 3 or 6 months after you take your first line. Or at least that's how it used to be for some of them. This is good to know that O2 allow this. slight_smile

Generally you will be assigned a line limit on initial credit check.

After being with a carrier for a while, I.E. 3 to 6 months and paying on time and having no restrictions applied etc, your credit worthiness should improve internally. This should allow you to take additional lines in the future.

You could ask them to run a new credit check but this might not be possible.

Kindest Regards,
Andrew.

O2 always credit check for additional lines.
It's only upgrades that don't get checked.
