As in prepaid? Nope! No credit check.

Prepaid no, but the "No Tab" plans still do since it's a billed service. Since you're not buying a device, you might end up getting approved with the spending limit program or something. It depends on what your needs are and what you qualify for.

Dont understand the point or purpose of a credit check! Do I pay my bills? Yes always! But I never asked for credit or had a credit card and I am 68. They tell me I have no credit and cant even get a cell phone plan! I never owed a dime and have a lucious banque account where I can pay my bill online in 2 minutes. But they say no! My family all lives in Ukraine and I cannot call anyone or get calls becsuse my little 15$ a month prepaid plan expired with 3 heart attacks and 2 surgeries in a month. They wont extend me a 15$ credit and I could pay double when I come home. What is the problem here? An almost dying old man is cut off from his family for 15 buck loan on credit? The family probably thinks I died.

Because not everyone is not as careful with their money as you are with yours.

A few minutes reviewing the posts on this forum will find lots of posts of folks who have not paid their bills for many months and been finally cut off.

If you are on prepaid, you can get your account re-activated within 90 days simply by adding money to your account, and choosing a new plan again. You will even retain your number, so family can call you.
