I'm sure the kind of scores you'll need are the ones that aren't like mines was. They checked EXP which has a score of 566 (due to a re-aged account), and they also checked TU and EQ and I have no score with TU and EQ (a lot of stuff dropped off), either way I was required to put a $300 deposit when I signed-up in October. I just wanted to give you an idea of what my score did for me
Thanks. I did the app online, I think I was approved without a deposit because I was able to finish the process without it telling me I needed a deposit. When I attempted to do it in my boyfriend's name it said he did not quailfy ( credit score too low). Then i later recieved an email that said welcome to AT&T and that my phone would be shipped out in 3-5 days. The only reason i went to them is for the free phone. I hate the idea of having a contract. But oh well.
AT&T cell service is absolutely horrible. (At least here in the Washington, DC region) I highly suggest going with another carrier as their customer service is terrible as well. I am counting the days down to April when my contract is up so I can switch to Verizon Wireless.
FWIW, they do not report to the CB unless you're late.
On a side note, on a trip to Pittsburgh over Christmas to visit the in laws, I noticed my cell phone worked in the Alleghany Mountain Tunnel the whole way through. Must be repeaters in there. I thought that was pretty cool.
