I would like a contract but have been in the UK for less than 3 years. Am I eligible?

Most network operators will stipulate in their terms and conditions that you must have lived in the United Kingdom for a minimum of 3 years before taking out a contract. Paying for the deposit will not alter this fact unfortunately, as this is an industry-wide condition for signing up to a mobile phone contract in the United Kingdom. You will not always need to be a British citizen, but you will need to have lived in the UK for at least 3 years to be eligible.

You are still eligible for a Pay As You Go (PAYG) phone however, and this may have to be a temporary compromise for the time being
