    Why can't I get a wifi contract when I have no permanent address and live in a motorhome temporarily?

    its all down to credit search and references.....no permenant address = no credit reference on that property.

    search Ebay for none expiring data sims

    hard to find but they are out there.

    mine (vodaphone) was £7.50 post free with £15 credit attached and no time limit for usage.
    been using it over a year now but i dont use it often.

    Isn't it just to do with the lack of permanent address rather than credit history?

    As far as I understood, BT only offer WiFI (Openzone/Fon) access as add-ons to their fixed broadband packages which, by definition, require a permanent address.

    As an ex full timer I appreciate the problem, you simply cannot get credit or phone contract without an address..

    Being of 'no fixed abode' ( technically homeless) is the biggest problem that faces all who decide to sell up and live in a van.. it's simply not recognised or catered for by officialdom, the main reason we gave up after three years.. and a phone contract was the least of our problems..

    Do you have a c/o address for other things like your bank and vehicle docs etc .. if so, have you tried using that ?

    When getting my first mobile phone many years ago I had great but I solved it by using my daughter to get it in her name.
