Hi everyone, I don't know if this has been discussed already as I couldn't find it with the search facility. Does anyone know if the Post Office do a credit check if you want to switch to them as a phone line provider? It looks a good deal and I would like to take it up.

Hope you're all well and keep up the great work [8D]

I don't know BOT. I am already with them.

Have you looked at their T&C? It might tell you on there.

You're not thinking of broadband as well are you? If you are, I wouldn't recommend it!

Hi Jan, I'm not interested in B/band package - just the phone. I've just flicked through the pamphlet again and it says under FAQ's about failing credit check - never mind!

You could always try! They might say yes!

I kept getting stuff through the mail from Virgin - the deal looked so much cheaper for phone / tv/ broadband. i gave them a ring and said that i was in an IVA - the lady i spoke to said that they would probably ask for a deposit of about £150 in that case - Post Office may do the same if you ask them

Trouble is - how do you afford a deposit of £150 when in an IVA?

You could do the lot with BT (not recommended by me!) or with Sky, which is what I shall be going with next year, regardless of what BT offer me!

I've just changed from Post Office phone to Sky package with broadband, phone and Sky +, got a good deal for a year then I'll look at it again. I never thought about being in an IVA and applied online for the package and was accepted straightaway!
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

I wished I had done that, rather than be persuaded by what BT could do for me!

This time next year..........!!!!!!!!!
