Owned by Verizon

So im finally working, finally got a bank account and debt card, have a little money, so i figured it was time to get a cell phone

i go through the whole process online, pick out a phone, set up the plan, it processes all my information, and then i get this statement

"Based on our credit validation, we will need a deposit of $1,000.00 to process your order and provision your service contract. The deposit will be charged to the credit card you provided."

It appears that my credit isnt good enough, and i have to pay 1000 dollars because they dont trust me. Nice eh?

Re: Owned by Verizon

Do you have any credit? How long?

Any phone compnay you contact will be about the same deposit. Why not try the new Cingular month-to-month thing? It's a good deal, no credit check, etc. Plus it's not riddled with fees like Virgin and the others ones are.

Re: Owned by Verizon

I have had bad credit for probably a year. The first bills that were in my name went unpaid because my dad decided to stiff me with some bills that he said he would pay, when i wasnt working.

Re: Owned by Verizon

Atleast you got a card. I have tried every card company out there, even ones I'm "pre-approved" for. Noone will give me a card. I think it's because I only work about 80 hours a month though. :p

Re: Owned by Verizon

it's super dumb, my girl friend wanted to switch the account from her mom to herself so she could start paying the bill. It'll cost her $400 to do it.

I'm like "THE ****?! All they do is change the address in your records and your name, and apparently that costs $400 to do."

Re: Owned by Verizon

I've been really happy with Verizon since I switched from AT&T Wireless nearly two years ago. I guess my credit was good enough that they didn't need a deposit. Some companies give you that deposit back after you've paid enough bills on time. You might want to check on that if you decide to go with Verizon.

Difference is, you had no credit, i have bad credit.

Every one of my friends, other than one, have verizon, it would be stupid for me to not get Verizon.
