Network Credit Checks

It’s a check the network carries out when you apply for a pay monthly phone plan, to protect you from identify fraud, and to help prevent you from running up unmanageable bills.

You’ll be notified of the network’s decision via email. You can also get updates by Checking Your Order.

Please contact your network directly to find out. We’re not given specific details about the decision.

You don't need to do anything. Your order will be cancelled and any payments returned to you. You could then buy the mobile you want SIM free - there's no credit check!

If you'd like to find out more about why your application was declined, please contact the network.
