    Why don't you have a social security number.

    Then go back to where you are from and get an iPhone there. Or become a citizen legally and get a social security number.

    Problem solved. :rolleyes:

    Ouch dude!

    To the OP. Sorry I can't help you. I'm from Canada and don't have an iPhone yet.

    Sorry for the rudeness of some posters here.

    Well welcome, we love our visitors too! But if you do love America so much, you shoul dbecome a proper citizen. It opens the door to much more also, the job market opens up more for you to with a SSN....

    But welcome, glad you're here, but become a Legal citizen. Then get an iPhone. And we arent being rude, illegal aliens cost us legal americans lots in tax dollars.

    Rudeness

    People aren't being outwardly rude to the OP, but I think it's uncool to take his question in a completely unrelated direction. This isn't the place for debating immigration policies, he simply wanted an answer to his question regarding the iPhone.

    Alas, I'm not sure of the answer, so I unfortunately can't provide it.

    And let's not make blanket statements like 'illegal aliens cost us legal americans lots in tax dollars' without evidence. I don't have the studies in front of me, but every labor economics class I took seemed to conclude that illegal immigrants generally had net positive effects on local economies, or at least that the issue was very much still up for debate.

    so..I spent a couple of summers in the US
    I have a SSN without being an american citizen, do you people think it's that easy to become a US citizen..did the OP actually say he was staying illegally in the US? didn't he say he would like his Mom to pay for the fees with her credit card? since when do illegal Aliens pay stuff with credit? believe me, it's easier to have a SSN than have credit from american banks
    i'm just saying my opinion though, not saying anyone is wrong

    i don't know the answer but i'm afraid it's quite hard to pay with someone else's credit card, while for the monthly charges I don't think paying with a different one is allowed, they usually need to control what you do and know who the buyer is.
    i'd just ask in an AT&T store and if they say no,if getting an SSN is impossible I'd give the person lending the SSN the cash or credit monthly or once in a while,some at the time,it's a lot in 2 years

    So how come when we said becom elegal, you said "naw". So then are you on Visa, exactly what are you on ,because you can get an iPhone in a certain situation, our immigrant workers have found work arounds where I work....

    you sure implied it


    or did you get some credit cards and might be stealing someones identity? last i checked, you need a ssn to get a credit card in the us and if you have a credit card but no ssn, sounds like a potential identity issue

    This thread is closed. I apologise for the rudeness of some of our forum members; some of them should know better.
