I am a few weeks away to my 18th birthday. Can I apply and be considered for a phone contract?
NO. In as much as we might like to be of help, we can’t because according to the UK laws, contractual agreements are only supposed to between adults. Any contractual agreement with an underage is void and cannot be enforced in a court of law. As such, if you need a phone contract, you will not only need to be 18 years of age but also be a UK citizen and earning some form of income.
