    18 year old student no credit score rejected for mobile contract HELP! 2nd Nov 09 at 11:34 PM
    Hi, my son is 18 and in college full time, he gets EMA of 30 a week, he has never been in debt and is very sensible with his money. He has tried to get a mobile phone with Orange and was refused, I told him it is because he has no credit rating. He doesnt want a credit card, he said he doesnt want to get in debt.
    How can he build a credit rating without getting into debt?
    Any help would be appreciated, he has never applied for anything in his life until he tried the mobile phone contract.
    He just wants a phone on a contract that he can afford.
