    Talkmobile credit rejected my application via Mobilephonesdirect

    I've been rejected by Talkmobile via Mobilephonesdirect, but Mobilephonesdirect can't tell me anything other than look at my credit report. I've checked with Experian and also Noddle and both are showing my credit rating as really good with no missed payments or anything.
    Unfortunately the deal I wanted is much cheaper @ Mobilephonesdirect than anywhere else - LG G4 for £17.50 with Talkmobile 1,000mins, 5,000 texts and 2Gb data. I've even tried in my partners name to see if this was a problem just for me but that's also been rejected. I had a similar problem last year when I tried to take out a Vodafone contract via Mobilephonesdirect as well, although Vodafone processed that one no problem.
    Is there anything I can do to get around this?

    Have heard several stories about this outfit and their decidedly odd scoring system. I have avoided them as I don't have faith in them. I would pay a little more and deal directly with the Provider who will accept you when these clowns don't.

    funnily enough I was rejected for a z5 compact, i work, no credit problems, already atalktalk customer and have a talktalk free sim. my other half doesn't work, has had no relationship with talktalk and was accepted.

    I've now tried to talk to Talkmobile, but they just refer me to Experian. Spoke to Experian and they were really helpful, told me my score is 999, the highest it can be, they even told me that they are not showing any credit searches by Talkmobile! They can't see any reason why I was refused. Can't believe it can be this difficult to take out a phone contract!!
