How Do I Get A Contract Phone With No Debit Card?

Today’s question comes from DippyLUFC who asks:

I want to get a new phone on a pay monthly plan but I don’t have a debit card how can I sign up without one?

To take out a mobile phone contract online , over the phone or in store you will need a chip and pin debit card or a credit card. This to prove your identity and signature. A pay monthly contract is always paid via direct debit which requires a credit or debit card.

Unfortunately without 1 of those 2 cards you won’t be able to take out a contract phone. Your only option is to buy a phone outright and top it up via pay as you go.
