Can You Get A Phone Contract When You Are Under 18?

by - Last Updated on October 17, 2018

To take out a pay monthly phone you will be credit checked so you need to be at least of 18 years of age to take out a mobile phone contract. There is no way around this as you need a credit or debit card to verify your identity and the ability to set up a direct debit facility.

The most common workaround we see is parents to taking out the contract in their name on a family plan and the child reimbursing them each month.

The other solution is to look at some PAYG deals that can be topped up via cash over the counter and to buy the phone outright.
