Ok, So when O2 said they were going to release the iPhone 3G on PAYG, I set my heart on it. I put £350 aside out of my driving lesson money and everything. But as we all know its not happening till later this year. So I've thought about giving in to O2 and trying to get one on contract. Problem is Im only 16 and therefore I cant get a contract (Unless I lie about my age? LOL). I've spoke with my mum about her trying to get one in her name but she thinks its highly unlikely as shes got a bad credit history, not so much recently, but from a marriage a few years back. Im guaranteed to pay the bill and stuff so thats not a problem. My question sort of stems from what I've heard in that, If you fail the credit check O2 offer that you pay them a deposit that they return after 6 motnhs of paying the bill. Does anyone know if there is any truth in this? Or even better, if there are any options in the case that she doesnt pass the credit check? I called my local O2 store and they said they would discuss these things If I came in on Friday but I dont really want to bother going if I have no chance of getting one and I have to stand and watch whilst everyone snaps up all the iPhones.
