Hello, I am an international student coming to UK this month and I would like to set up a new sim card. My cellphone just stopped working, so I wanted to get an Iphone for free with pay per month deal, but I am not sure, if I am eligible to do so, as I am not from UK. I will also need the cellphone as soon as possible, so if anyone can tell me, if I should order the phone first, so I can pick it up at the store when I arrive.
Thank you for your answer

Hello @Dxnam4 do you have a UK address and bank account? You will need these to sign up for an EE contract.
You can order online:
Or over the phone on 0800 956 6000. If you are not eligible for a contract you can choose PAYG:

I can probably use my University address, but bank account will take few days before I can have one. Can I still order it and maybe add my bank account later?

Hello @Dxnam4 no you will need an account set up ready for when you want to sign up. You need a UK credit rating and without a UK bank account you may not have one or may not have built up a good enough rating yet.
Your best option is to call them the sales team can check your eligibility or offer you any suitable alternatives. 🙂
