Re: Sim only upgrade

If you mean you're thinking of joining Plusnet Mobile then yes, there is a credit check I believe. 

 

If you're struggling to find a supplier due to failed credit checks or just don't want the record then try:

(sorry Plusnet Sad )

 

As you can see there are very few that don't.

Re: Sim only upgrade

Hi @Stephenkitson97,

 

thanks for getting in touch! If you have a SIM only deal with us you can upgrade to a handset after six months of consecutive direct debit payments, once the seventh bill after this has been produced you can then upgrade to a handset contract. 

As we carry out a credit check when the SIM only deal is taken out we don't need to do any further credit checks for you to upgrade to a handset. Smiley

Re: Sim only upgrade

Apologies @Stephenkitson97 I didn't know you could get a handset from PN.

 

@SarahStewart are these advertised anywhere, I couldn't see anything obvious.

Hi @Colin_Maybe

 

thanks for the query! We don't advertise our handsets as you do have to be a customer on SIM only for six months to qualify. 

However if you give our sales team a call they can talk through all our handsets with you and get a product card emailed out to you so you can have a browse in your own time.

Re: Sim only upgrade

Thanks @SarahStewart but I normally buy my handset outright, I've just never seen this before (and I've been with you for 10 months).

 

Is there any reason that you can share on why you have to be with PN for 6 months or more to qualify?

 

Edit: on hindsight I guess it's to make sure they're a reliable payer.
