wtf! why do i have to pay $250 if i have great credit. i cant see the att manual right now, but if someone can please copy and paste that on this thread, that would be great!
Those of you who are getting slapped with deposits have a great opportunity to get the phone OUT of contract as a GoPhone. It's more expensive but you can also just quit at any time. I'd do it, but there's no way I can fail a credit check.
sela vie.....not what I read....You completely misunderstood the statement. You only pay a deposit if you fail the credit check. Pass=$0 deposit Fail=$150-750 deposit.

existing customer here so I won't worry about it. Thought for sure it said a deposit for non existing ATT customers. Even if you do a credit check....
I dunno about "pointless".....AT&T knows the demand behind this product. They could probably get away with it, honestly. Might slow the sales down a bit, but they could probably do it.How does that makes sense? Credit checks and deposits are standard practice in the wireless industry, to make new customers with perfect credit pay a $250 deposit would be quite unorthodox and pointless.
just called my local att store and they are not sure about this, but did say that if the rumor is true, be prepared to pay this amount. again, she was not sure if that is true or ust a rumor - wont know anything till tomorrow afternoon after they close the doors to prepareYeah, you guys read it wrong. The exchange that includes '$250' is an imaginary exchange, showing what to say if the computer tells the rep that the customer needs to pay a deposit. For that matter, it wouldn't always be 250, that is just in this particular example.
Got to read a little better than that. Only customers with questionable credit will be forced to pay a security deposit.
