Security ID Checks

We run a set of checks on your details to prevent credit card fraud and identity theft. We sometimes request ID documents to help verify your details. Once we’re happy to continue, the network runs its own security and credit checks.

Only if we’ve contacted you requesting them. We ask some of our customers to supply ID documents to help verify their details.

Please refer to our ID documents guide for advice.

As per the GOV.UK website, identity cards were scrapped in 2011 - they're no longer valid and can't be used as proof of identify.

Please send a scan or photo of your ID documents to [email protected], quoting your Order Number in the email.

Once you email your ID documents to [email protected], we’ll email you back straightaway to let you know we’ve received them.

If you don’t have the ID documents we’ve requested, consider buying the phone you want SIM free. You won’t need any ID documents, nor will you be credit checked.
