Credit Check Question

Anonymous
Not applicable
im turning 18 in few days and want to go on a pay monthly contract, but was just a bit confused what a credit check entails. i've only ever had my barclays bank account with a visa electron debit card, wondering whether i would breeze through this check as i dont really have credit history as such. replies are appreciated.

I got my o2 contract on my 18th birthday a few years back. I passed it, with no problems.
If you do fail the credit check though, you will be asked to give a depositm which you will get back on your third bill.

Thanks for your reply. Lets just say i fail, how much do these deposits tend to be?

If plumping up £150 does not sound appealing in that instance an alternative is to ask for an o2 sim only, using one of those for a few months acts as a credit building facility enabling you to get accepted for a contract off the back of proven good payment records......
