They claim they do.

AT&T, and pretty much all other carriers will do a credit check. I've known a couple guys that could not get a cell phone, but your credit score has to be something like -400.

I also don't think you can fail a credit check on purpose. You could try to give someone else's information, or try to make up a SSN, but I'm not so certain that it isn't highly illegal to do such.

I got an iphone last night (yea! joined the club), and I was surprised, I failed the credit check on itunes (I have average credit, in the 600s). So who knows. But at least I'm not locked into a contract now, I just took the prepaid.

If your credit is bad enough that you cant pass you should not be buying an expensive iphone. Go get the free phone that comes with a phone plan.

First of all you cant even try to activate a phone if you put a canadian address.
Second if you fail the credit check then your phone is still locked.
So either way if you want to use it in canada the only thing you can do is find some unlocking software and hack it to work with your provider up there.

Years ago I couldnt get an account with ATT without a $500 per line deposit with credit score around 630 at the time. However I was able to finance a $30k vehicle at 0% interest. Go figure.
