Credit Check and denied Tab Plus

I need a new phone and I would like to change my plan. I use a lot of data and I have an old plan 40/mth but no GB of data. So I am paying over 100 every month. I paid off my phone bill, I have been behind a couple of months. What can I do? I want to S7 but not willing to pay 400 up front.

Your title says you were denied tab plus so you don't even have that option of 400 up front. Change your plan to something with more data if that's what you need. What provicne are you located in? Also are you caught up now with your bill, since you say that you have been behind a couple of months? You're going to need to maintain a good on track payment record if you want a tab.

What is your monthly data usage? You're probably going to have to find a way to use less. You're paying over 100 a month but you dont want to spend 400 upfront for a phone. If it's because you just don't want to rather than can, well it is what it is. If you cannot, you need to accept a cheaper phone (like the moto g plus for 360 on tab) and/or use less data to save up for one. You can use something like opera max to help reduce your data consumption to spend less to put towards a new phone.

May I suggest you go to the bank for a line of credit
