Just been to 02, they have them in stock. Tried to pay with my Visa
Electron, no chance, sorry we dont take Electron. OK, no problem I said, I
will go to the ATM and get you the cash. Sorry we dont take cash either she
said. OMG !!!

Apparently she said Apple have said to buy an iPhone you must pay by Switch
or Visa, not electron or cash. Hey it comes a time when cash isnt even good
enough. I know my credit rating is bad but i thought I would be able to pay
with cash.

Isnt this against the law to refuse to accept the queens tender, or am I
wrong. It has been known

Ridiculous but true, the full list of what they will accept is:

a) Switch/Maestro
b) Solo (with Switch option)
c) Visa
d) MasterCard
e) Delta
f) American Express.

You could always go for one of the new prepaid cards like this one:
<http://uk.virginmoney.com/prepaid-card/>

As far as I can tell, it *is* a Mastercard.

No idea if the link is to a good one, it's just the first one Google
turned up. Shop around!

I always thought Visa and Visa Electron worked on the same system. If they
take one they should be able to take the other, and Electron should cost
them less. Try saying its just a Visa card.
