    I'm going to buy an iPhone this week, and will almost certainly have to pay a deposit (if I'm accepted at all).

    I just wanted to know, is the deposit always £100? And after you've paid it, how long does it take to activate? Do you have to phone them to pay it, or is it just done in iTunes?

    Thanks!

    hat's not how it works. You sign up through iTunes at home.

    I'm not sure how that has anything to do with my credit history :confused:

    As long as you have enough on your credit/debit card to actually buy the phone Apple/O2/Carphone Warehouse will have no problem selling it to you. No credit checks are done in store, its all done over the internet with iTunes.

    You won't be able to pay a deposit through iTunes. That's how.

    I know that, I'm talking about when I'm activating.

    Well im pretty sure iTunes will either say 'yes' or 'no' when it checks your history, i haven't heard a thing about deposits.

    No, some people get a conditional yes, and are asked for a deposit.

    First I have heard of that. If you fail the credit check you can just take it back
