What are the operators criteria to approve device plans?
Both Etisalat and du provide instalment plans for devices to customers who sign a contract on their postpaid plans and pass the credit check of the operator to be offered a device instalment plan.
Operators make decision based on your credit rating from Etihad Credit Bureau, your documents (the higher salary the higher chances, credit card with demonstrated track record with a bank) and your track record with them.
Customers approved by operators receive device immediately. Those who do not meet their criteria need to build their credit record.
