    can I preorder the T-Mobile iPhone 6S, pay full retail for it and use their service? I don't want them to run a credit check as I'm in the process of a mortgage application. Thanks guys!

    Yes, but you won't get priority shipping so it probably won't come day 1. You might be better off preordering it from Apple and then activating it on T-Mobile.

    Ok, yeah I'm planning on starting new service with them and wondered if I could preorder the full retail version but not have my credit checked. Maybe I'll just buy the T-Mobile unlocked, then go to a T-Mobile store to activate

    Only way for no credit check is pre paid on tmobile

    Thats what i do.5gb lte ult text and 100mins is $30

    They will tell even if you bring your own phone they still have to do a credit check for post paid account.and they will do a hard pull but say its a soft pull

    That's an amazing deal! So what should I do then? Order the T-Mobile version with no account and when I get it, activate it on prepaid? Is it as simple as walking into a T-Mobile store, saying I want prepaid and them giving me a nano sim?

    Awesome, so just to confirm. I'll preorder the T-Mobile version full retail without account info. But this Sim kit and when the 6S is delivered. Toss this sim in and be on T-Mobile prepaid? You are amazing man, thanks so much for your help!!!
