Getting pissed off with this now, I cant get a contract with o2 because there system doesnt recognise a barrack address. Has anyone else had this problem, how did you get over it?

Yes i had this problem, I still have this problem with the electoral role. I am registerd in Tidworth (at my unit address) however the Address format and layout is one that is not accepted by "Experian" the credit check company, therefore giving me a very poor credit rating and no history.

I managed to get a Vodaphone contract (phones4You salisbury) by taking in a few utility bills. ( Bank statement and BT bill) Along with my MOD90, there is a proceedure and special, Forcers application form that they use and fax off. I had an Answer within the hour and have a contract with Vodaphone.

I have had the same problem when renewing things such as car insurance on line and just about most other things where you have to provide an address. Most systems I dont think recognise military addresses (barracks) requiring the sales person to enter the details manually rather than using the postcode and house number method. Although once done then there is usually no problem.

You got mate on the married patch? Try using your barracks address as your correspondence address and someone else's (Married patch/civvy mates address) for the delivery address - If they still can't be arrsed to take the time to help a potential customer ask them for the address of their nearest competitor.

This will work

The Clansman family consists of nine main radio units, three of which are carried on vehicles, the other six on the back, across the chest, or other such places on a foot soldier.

Well, as an O2PAYG user sonce 2003, I'm thinking about getting a contract - and I would advise switching to Orange,

Feck O2 - if they don't want your business, just go elsewhere.
