SIM Only Deals

BQ is a new name in the smart mobile industry. Having started their business in mainland Europe, they have recently begun expanding, offering well-designed smartphones with high level customer care (including a 5 year warranty!) all at affordable prices.

The Aquaris X5 has been developed as a disruptive entry to the mid range market. It offers a slimline metal design and feature-set more common on expensive top-end phones, with a well-picked set of hardware specifications that keep the cost as low as possible.

There is also plenty of user customisation available in the software thanks to the Cyanogen OS. This is based on Google's Android but with added privacy, security features and user configuration.

SIM Free /Unlocked UK Stock

BQ smartphones and devices are sold SIM Free and unlocked, for use on any mobile network provider.

For those outside outside of Europe, please check compatibility with your local mobile network provider for 3G and 4G provisions.

Am I eligible for finance?

The short answer is, you probably are! Our credit provider carries out credit checks and has a few requirements for offering finance but please make sure you meet these simple requirements

  • Your order is £99 or more
  • You are 18 years or older
  • You are a UK resident, and have been for more than 3 years
  • You can make regular direct debit payments
  • You are in regular employment, or permanently live with a spouse who is in regular employment
  • Have a credit/debit card in your name that is registered to your current address
  • You have a good credit history, and have received no CCJs

How long does it take to apply?

That depends how fast you can type! There are no lengthy applications to complete, you're just asked a few short questions and you can get an instant decision.

What details should I have to hand?

You don't need much - if you already have a PayPal account then usually you'll just have a few questions to answer, if you don't have a PayPal account you just need to register with them.

What if I am declined for finance?

When you're applying for finance you always need to remember that there is a possibility you will be declined. This can often be caused by one of a number of reasons, but usually it will be caused by a negative credit score or a default on an existing loan. We've done our best to make it as easy as possible for our customers that aren't successful in applying to continue their order and pay by Credit Card, Debit Card, PayPal Wallet or Bank Transfer - it really is as simple as clicking "complete my order using a different method". And as always, if you have any concerns please do get in touch.
