credit checks

Bit disappointed that I was refused a new phone because of a credit check when I already have a full virgin media package and a virgin mobile contract. Both are up to date and in credit. No contact just an email saying oops something is wrong. The option to make a deposit payment would have been nice.

Re: credit checks

I had a similar issue with Carphone Warehouse, rejected a contract in both mine and partners name despite a clean credit record yet got 1 with Virgin Mobile!.  Seems to be no consistency in these credit checks when the same person can pass 1 check for an expensive buy yet fail a check for a phone contract!.
