Transfer from one account to another credit check

Member

I am wanting to transfer 2 phones from one account to my account. The account they are coming from is current in the bill. Will transfering them to my account cause another credit check on me or does it move just fine as long as its authorzied by the original account holder. 

 

Thank you,

Donna

Oh man, I wish I saw this sooner!

Former TYS rep here. You don't get a hard hit moving lines from one account to another. The system does a soft check to make sure you are within your line limit and if you are still within your financing limit to take on existing loans.

 

The one thing to keep in mind aside from the accounts being current are promo credits. If the equipment is getting a credit each month, that will drop off once transferred. If this is not the case, by all means transfer.
