Wireless Credit Check

I am with Sprint but am looking into switching over to T-Mobile.  At the moment my Credit score is 664.  Should this be high enough to get an account without a deposit or if so how much do you think it would end up costing me.  Thanks to all in advance for your time

I don't know about T-mobile but I was recently approved through Verizon for five lines with no deposit with a 664 score.

Well no matter which is pulled, you should get approved with no deposit.

Re: Wireless Credit Check

I forgot to ask earlier but was also wondering how many points would my score drop by switching and having them run the credit check.
