I have a 'dormant' credit history that I'm trying to rebuild and was thinking about having our AT&T phone/internet account changed over to my name. I have been paying the bills for years, but it's not in my name. I wanted to see if AT&T actually reports to the CRAs as an "account in good standing"?
I'm looking through their site and searching this forum and google, but haven't found that info yet.
We just got AT &T. It's in my husbands name, and they did a pull on his credit reports. I think a hard pull, as it was listed right next to his recent credit card application pull. As far as we know, and my past history with Verizon and Nextel (Sprint), they do not report monthly. Only the CA who gets your account when/if you mess up reports. Sad, really, that you aren't rewarded for paying your electric bill or phone bill every month. But if you forget about it once during a move, you'll be reported. lol.
To the best of my knowledge AT&T is like Verizon; they will do a pull to determine if a deposit is necessary, but will not report monthly payments.
