As has already been said in this thread, mobile phone companies aren't lenders, so they don't have access to credit reports and have to make decisions based on other information. And you can't be defamed to yourself. Your friend was talking out their hat.

She may have been misinformed, but she wasn't talking out of her headwear. She was unhappy (to say the least) that their employee had falsely accused her of having a poor credit history.

On another topic.. There is something up with me being able to avail of this offer. My folks got the voucher in the post, I was able to use it. Applied for the offer but it was rejected on credit terms.. Makes no sense to me as I've been working the last 8yrs solid and have a decent credit history (not that they check it). Anyways, now they've disabled the voucher code so I can no longer make an application.

My only thinking is that emobile and meteor are the same company and my monthly bill is worth €100+ a month to meteor they don't want me to move from meteor as they can make more money off me that way.. Bit of a joke the way I've been treated.. Will be banging off another email over the weekend to see what the story is.
They're looking at the credit history linked to the voucher, which would be your folks history with eircom if its their code. Nothing else. They're not a bank.

So their reception outside towns and cities is crap? I would have assumed that they had at least as much coverage as meteor.

Still strikes me as odd, my folks have been with eircom since, well since before it was eircom. Never missed a bill etc. It just strikes me as odd....

Got my HTC One X Yesterday. Very happy so far!

The gf is thinking about joining up, but is concerned the signal in her area may not be great. Anyone know their policy with returns on bill contract phones?

Thanks in advance

There are a few days grace period during which you can cancel and return, as far as I understand.

to throw a spanner in the works..

I was with meteor and swapped to emobile this week

reception at my home address with meteor was terrible, dropped calls, failed delivery of texts, unable to take calls in certain rooms. worst reception i ever had. it was extremely frustrating.

with emobile i have none of those issues, stable reception, clear calls

how is it better when on some level they are the same network? im not entirely sure
