If a mobile company will look at you you should be fine.

You should be OK, subject to phone provider acceptance. Many of us managed upgrades and some totally new contracts.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

A finance check will be done so you may find you are not accepted, however I was upfront in my iva and explained and the store manager overrode the process somehow and sorted it ...ask, you never know !
