I read on here that you don't HAVE to have credit to purchase a cell phone plan..but you will have to put in a deposit? Is that correct? I always thought it was no credit no deal..

And I'm going to be coming from tmobile..should I cancel my account before switching to ATT or will there be no conflict in canceling later..when I actually can verify the thing works (I'll be keeping the same #..)

Thanks in advance.

iWant, I would recommend calling AT&T and asking what your options are. Weather or not you plan to get an iPhone, their service and transfer options are the same. You should call them and ask what it would take to sign up for service with them since you have been an T-Mobile subscriber. And depending on your location, it is quite possible that you can take your T-Mobile phone number with you.

AT&T's website said:
Considering AT&T?
Call us for more information about coverage, offers, cool phones and anything else you need to know. 1-888-333-6651
Bottom line, I wouldn't do anything to your T-Mobile account until you know what your options are. Depending on your contract with T-Mobile, you may need to check with them as well. Especially if your current contract hasn't expired yet.

If you wish to port a number, DO NOT cancel the original line of service before opening the new one. You will not be able to port your number if you cancel your old contract first.

When you transfer your number to AT&T, your T-Mobile account will be cancelled and you will receive your final bill/cancellation fee. Note, you will not be billed for a cancellation fee if your contract is expired. You can do all this though iTunes.
