    are really starting to annoy me.

    the other week i put in an online order for a phone. Nothing

    they ring a week later and ask for £150 pound deposit, i do so and i then rin gthem back becuase they didnt tell when id get it back. Ring them back and the women hangs up on me, 15 mins later i found out it comes back to me when the contract is over.
    Still no phone 5 days later because they were delayed taking the deposit so they tell me down the phone, so it will be delivered in 2 days (which was last wednesday) no phone still today and have just gotten off the phone from them. Now i hacve to go find a fax machine and fax through proof of my address before they send it out which means i wont get it till tuesday at the earlist providing i find a fax machine tonight.

    They are annoying me now almost as much as dialaphone did, and that was hardcore annoying.

    /rant

    (p.s. if i cancel this order and then walk into the link and get the same contract with free goodies will i b able to walk out with the phone that day provided they have it or will i have to wait for credit checks blah blah like online ?)

    You will find a fax in any staples or such store. You will be able to go to any high street store and get a phone the same hour, "IF" you pass the credit check, wich sounds like a big IF atm. "3" are the easiest credit check to pass of the lot, so wpuldnt even bother with the rest tbh.

    Yes and no.

    I work for The Link and 3 asked me for £150 deposit so i told them where to stick it and then i tried T-Mobile and i was accepted and they said i can have 8 connections lol

    Go figure.

    I got my O2 contract as soon as i turned 18 with no credit at all.

    Most likely because they can't verify your address. Are you on the electoral roll at your address? Listed with directory enquiries there? These things do matter (especially if they are asking for proof, it means they can't verify your identity by other means)

    Of course its not free you have to pay £30 per month for 18 months in most cases! :rolleyes:

    So that 18 * 30 =£540 for two phones, great!

    Seriously dude, wait for the inevitable N80 push next month. Stores will be fighting to beat each other and there will be some ludicrous deals.
