can i take out an ee contract at 17?

my dad currently pays for my contract, however it ends in a few weeks, i was wondering if i could take my next contract out in my own name or do i have to be 18? also if i cant take it out in my name, if my dad puts it in his name for me, would i still be able to use the student discount on the contract?

No, you need to be 18. It's a credit agreement & you can't take those out until 18.

Hi @keeleyr2000


Thanks for coming to community to see us 🙂


@XRaySpeX is right and you do need to be 18 before you can take out a credit agreement.


The contract won't just end so don't worry it will continue to roll on until you tell us you no longer want it.


However when your 18th comes if you wan't to apply for a new pay monthly account with us you can, or you can try to transfer the number over to a new account, whichever is easiest for you (both subject to credit checks).
