You don't activate your phone through AT&T you just buy it from them. You activate it through iTunes. I don't know of any credit check, but I was an existing customer.

if you trying to get new service with them, then yes they will. I don't know of any cell phone company out there that doesn't check your credit before signing a 2yr contract, unless you are renewing and are already an existing customer, hope that clears up the confusion. if you arent currently an AT&T customer, then yes, they will check your credit.

F. ATT just unlock the iPhone and sign up with T-Mobile no contract month to month and you can even keep you old or transfer your phone number
and no need to give your Social security
