    Default AT&T won't approve me for any plan ?? here's why
    sup,

    i'm with T-Mo now, but years ago I used to have AT&T. I walked away from AT&T in a bad way (not paying a cancellation fee, not paying 2 bills and there was some charges..etc..etc) they tried to get their money few times and gave up which was never sent to a collection agency but it was reported on my credit history...

    So after all these years I tried to get approved for iPhone 3G and the only way for them to approve me is if I pay $750 down payment and then I'll be free to go and use the service.

    I don't have that amount of money so what options do I have. Can I use my dad or moms name to get it ??

    You can if you want get someone else to sign the contract, or you could wait for a unlock to become available for the 3g, buy one of ebay and unlock it, thus still allowing you to carry on your t-mobile contract.

    Your dad or mom could take care of it for you, yes. If I were your dad or mom, knowing you left ATT on bad terms with a ding in your credit history I would say NO WAY But that's just me...

    ^ Agreed. You can't expect them to welcome you... You did not pay ETF, or 2 bills (by your own admittance). Your lucky that it was reported to your credit... Did you check with all three bureaus?

    I guess you should have paid them. I do not know the details but it looks like it backfired on you. But you must put in someones name other than your name.

    That is with every credit out there. Sometimes ppl get credit and don't pay for any particular reason. You might wait 7 or more years and your credit report is clean. However, if you try to get credit at the same place that you never did paid, they will always have records of the ppl that never paid. So you want credit, Pay up.

    I've matured a lot. Now I'm 24, this used to be when I was 18 or 19 and was careless.

    You can have your parents set it up and then put your name on their account as an approved user who can make changes to the phone line.

    You would be better off going and getting the 1st gen and staying with Tmo though. Their rates are better.
