Tried searching, don't think these have been covered. Also, can't get my local AT&T store to answer there phone. If I have someone (Ie: Parents) pre-authorize the credit approval in my name , will I need them or certain information from them come Friday? Also, will that pre-authorization be valid at both AT&T stores, and Apple Stores? The reasoning is, I have no credit history. So obviously, i'm having my parents run their credit, under my name for the account. I will be handling the signup entirely on my own, beyond this. My credit card (debit), my name, etc etc. Any clue? Back to ringing AT&T.
