Without a credit history, you will most likely have to give Verizon a security deposit of up to $400/line. The deposit is refunded after 1 year of in full and on time payments.
You should try to have a credit app run. There used to be a program that didn't require a deposit but VZW could call you during your bill cycle to change your plan higher and/or request an early payment if your usage was expected to be high. It is always worth a shot. Go to the store with your state issued photo ID, SS Card and a proof of address.
Albeit less support and fewer features as a postpaid More Everything plan, but still a good move for someone who yet has credit. Most of the Prepaid phones aren't bad, and can be reasonably priced given their specs.
Just go Prepaid why lock yourself in a contract? Prepaid service works just as great with much more freedom.
You do not have to sign a 2 yr service contract to go post-paid. You can always go post-paid and STILL be a month to month customer just like pre-paid.
Is it urgent you have your own plan right now? Another option is to establish credit. Gotta start somewhere. My first credit card was from a national bank; limit $300. I used it regularly and paid it off as soon as it posted. It shouldn't take too long to establish credit; just buy gas on it and pay it off before the end of the month. Just don't go crazy.
You still need to have a credit check to go month to month post-paid.
I never said you didn't, simply that you didn't have to sign a 2 yr service contract. In fact, earlier I stated without a credit history(or bad credit) they would most likely have to provide a security deposit.
