    Security deposit requirements

      I have recently completed a bankruptcy. Given that my credit is probably going to come back bad, will I still be able to get a new Verizon account and smart phone?

            Verizon will do a credit check when you open the account, and depending on the results, they will ask you to pay a deposit.  You'll have the chance to review the deposit amount and accept or reject it before your order is finalized.

             

            I think most people are able to open postpaid accounts with bad credit, as long as they pay the deposit.  If they outright refuse to let you open an account, you could look into prepaid service until your credit begins to improve.
