Why would they report anything unless they are outside of terms?

what you borrow from them is a month-at-a-time's worth of postpay phone service and the ability to run your bill up just about as high as you want to run it up each month.  they typically run a credit inquiry in exchange for that convenience.  they should report accounts in good standing, as should all of the utility companies that will give you a good spanking if you dont pay.

They must report to some agency. I say this because when I switched from AT&T to Verizon several years ago Verizon did a credit check and told me I had a perfect payment history with AT&T. Verizon was also able to verify my AT&T plan and contract length.

I guess I'm just one of the guys that is in total disagreement with that arguement...
 
Sounds silly to me that water, power, and electricity should report to CRAs. What's next? Scorewatch and TC reporting timely payments??? What about Sports Illustrated and Better Homes and Gardens?Smiley Very Happy
 
Sorry, I just don't buy into the idea that subscription services should be reported...

If they report negatives, they should report positives.

Still disagree... If that were the case, then Hospitals, Dentists and Optomitrists should report payments as well...Smiley Very Happy
