    whats up guys. i was just wondering..

    when i walk into the att store on july 11 and sign up for a contract, do they have to approve my credit or anything or do they just jot down my credit card number...

    sorry if the answer is obvious..this would be the first time i sign up for a plan by myself. thanks.

    I'm pretty sure they do a credit pull - you have to give them your SSN, which I don't know what else they'd use for other than ID or credit check

    Get ready for the routine credit check, and have mom and dad standby just in case. Might need a cosigner or someone with good credit to walk out of the Apple Store or the AT&T Store with the new 3G iPhone. That's why so many would go the "Go Phone" route. In the states, SSN, major CC, physical address, landline, and references. Good luck. :eek:

    For current AT&T customers they will NOT run another credit check..

    For NEW customers, yes a credit check will be performed..

    Slightly off the topic, but the credit check is just a bunch of Bull Crap (capital B, Bull Crap.) It's bull that I can call international all day and run up the bill. How about just shut off my phone when my minutes are up.

    I just hate giving my SSN to some ATT dude running some crappy Wifi security in an Apple store. While a hacker outside the Apple store sniffing your credit traffic.
