For a credit check, if no credit card, they can use a driver's license and/or a social insurance number. They will not use that info for anything else but the credit check

Sorry, no. You need a social insurance number to work in Canada so if you don't have a job, how are you going to pay your bill?

You need any 2 of the following for a credit check:

- SIN
- Canadian credit card
- drivers license

Otherwise, it can't be done and you cannot activate a monthly plan. Your next option would be prepaid

Possibly because you have not asked a clear question. Also, typing in ALL CAPS is considered shouting in an internet forum. Mixed case is consider normal tone.

Ask a clear question, and you are more likely to garner a response.

Also, remember, this is a community of customers, who volunteer to answer questions, not a chat line, so response can take some time on occasion.

Because it's not a form of official ID.
