    Well in the states you need to sign a contract, so you have to be 18, so I assume you need some ID to prove you're old enough. About the credit card, maybe, or you'll just have to mail the company checks every month if you don't have a credit card/bank card for easier payment.

    You need a credit card and driver's license/ID.
    They will need to run a credit check, that is why.

    Are you sure for the credit card ? because i don't have one ... are you sure you need one even in the apple store ? Do you know if they can do without it ?

    Yes they need to check your credit otherwise you will not be able to have a contract at all.

    It was 4 years ago, but I seem to recall that when we moved to Canada my wife and I managed to get a monthly plan each with Fido when we got here. And that went through before we managed to get a Canadian credit card or a Canadian drivers license. The only thing was that we couldn't get both plans on the same account (since our credit history here was non-existent), we had to each get a separate plan. We already had existing phones, but I don't think that makes a difference.
    So my advice is: just take every piece of ID you own, and give it a shot. It should work. AFAIK they can check your credit with other pieces of ID, it is not essential to own a credit card (unless they accepted our Australian ones, but I find that unlikely...)
    I'm sorry I can't be more definite, but it was 4 years ago, we had just moved here, and things are a bit hazy.

    Ok thank you very much for your answer ! You're making me happy ! :) I checked on the website and it seems that we can show other pieces instead of a credit card ... Someone else can confirm ?

    Ils ont demandés une carte de crédit pour moi quand j'ai signé mon contrat avec Telus pour la première fois.

    Une chose que tu devrais vérifier est si il est possible d'acheter un contrat avec un fournisseur directement du Apple store. Je pensais qu'ils vendaient des téléphones sans contrat seulement? Tu devrais les appeler pour en être certain!

    En france il faut aussi un compte bancaire mais sur le site d'apple canada ils disent :


    What to Bring with You

    Proof of current address
    Proof of DOB
    Valid ID issued in Canada by a Canadian Government Agency which includes a photo ID


    You will also need to present a second form of ID from the list below:

    Canadian Credit Card
    SIN card
    Provincial ID or Age of Majority Card
    Citizenship Card
    Native Status Card
    Senior Citizens Card
    Armed Forces ID
    University Student ID
    Passport
    Wireless Invoice (for upgrades)





    Donc la carte de credit n'est pas obligatoire non ?
