    O2 wants 350 deposit? 22nd May 07 at 4:17 PM

    I just ordered a phone from OneStopPhoneShop and i got an email yesterday saying i should contact them about the order. I also checked the status of my order online and it said a security deposit is required but the order has been accepted.

    I just phoned up and the custoemr service rep told me it had been accepted but 02 want a 350 security deposit whih will be refundable after 6 months. Why am i beign charged this deposit? I thought my credit rating was decent, i haven't got any credit cards so i haven't hd the chance to improve it but i paid all my bills on time with my previous mobile contract.

    Any advice would appreciated
