thanks! do i do this at the att store or online? i am confused, i have been a cingular customer for a few yearsThey have to check your credit score to see if you'll likely pay your bills on time. If you score high enough, you'll get an iPhone no problem. If your score is low, then you'll ahve to pay a security deposit which will gain interest and you will get it + interest back after 1 year. Thsi deposit could be $50-$300, depending on how low your score is.
as long as you've paid your bill on time, you won't have any problem at all, but if you've slow paid a few times they might want some cash.thanks! do i do this at the att store or online? i am confused, i have been a cingular customer for a few years
If you want the phone bad enough like I do you'll pay it and be happy, I have to pay a $300 deposit and I have a house, I have an old unpaid Suncom bill and that's what caused me to pay a deposit.Well that sucks....oh well....
Nobody really knows. Any slow payments to cell providers will hurt though.I am just curious what constitutes an acceptable credit score for AT&T/Apple? I checked mine the other day on FreeCreditReport.com, and it's a 789 so I'm not worried....but what do you think the cutoff is?
I do what I have to do as well, I work everyday and make an exremely decent income for my age. Just because I pay my bills a certain way and haven't even messed with the credit world, I just think they should have another option for finding out if I pay my bills on time, which I do. Thats all. I'll gladly pay the money if I have to to get the beloved iPhone.If you want the phone bad enough like I do you'll pay it and be happy, I have to pay a $300 deposit and I have a house, I have an old unpaid Suncom bill and that's what caused me to pay a deposit.
I pay my mortgage on time because I do what I gotta do, if I want more money then I go out and make some, so go mow a few lawns, offer to wash the neighbors car etc.
