It’s pretty unlikely to be honest especially if it’s a handset contract and even if you mum does pass a credit check, she may well have to pay a hefty up-front deposit.

Hi @beth_12

 

Welcome to the community 🙂

 

We have to carry out a credit check every time one of our customers wants to sign up for a pay monthly phone plan.

 

Unfortunately, your mum won't be able to join EE as a pay monthly customer just yet if she fails the credit check. Instead, she can join on pay as you go and still experience all the great benefits of EE.

 

As a result of your credit check we might ask you to pay a security deposit so you can use the EE network or activate certain services on your account.
