Important AT&T credit check

HelloHello, I started to build credit 4 months ago

I started with a secured card and I'm always under 10% utilization and 

Pay all my bills on time. My report is clean

I recently got approved for capital one unsecured card and Walmart 

 

Anyway people tell me I will probably start around a 680 fico score 

 

I wanted to know what are my chances to get approved with AT&T for opening an account without a deposit?


Starting Score: EQ 683 TU 714
Current Score: EQ 683 TU 714
Goal Score: EQ 740 TU 740

With walmart you get a free TU08 FICO score. Once you receive your card opt for paperless statements and you'll receive a free score once a month. This score is real and will give you a little info on where you stand. I'm not sure who AT&T pulls, but if all of your reports show the same information your scores should be similar.

Re: Important AT&T credit check

I got an AT&T account about a year post BK. I hadn't been late after the BK but I had only one CC that was a few months late. I didn't require a deposit and I was actually pretty suprised. I think you'll be fine.

BK in 2008, after making very stupid financial decisions.
