I have a friend who has been in the UK, from the EU, for the last year and she wants a phone contract with GiffGaff.

She is eyeing the new HTC One M9 and I recommended here but is stuggling to find any answers on this site.


Can anyone perhaps oblige?

Thanks in advance for answering my question!

Hi, for giffgaff to approve the loan for phone, your friend must have lived in UK for atleast 3 years sadly. Without that and decent credit rating, you can't unforatunatly get loans from UK, the only option left is pay all upfront and buy it.

I think your friend should get a giffgaff sim and for a more than affordable £20 your friend will have more minutes than he/she can manage to use as well as unlimited data and text messages and if that's to expensive then £10 well get them ample phone usage.
