How to get a contract with Sprint?

Hello believe it or not I'm 20 and I've never owned a single cellphone. I have no clue on what I need to start a contract and I want to be prepared once I do go to a Sprint store.

A couple of other stuff

 

  • I want to purchase the Iphone 4S 16GB
  • How does the credit check work? I've only worked with my Uncle so I just get paid in cash.  I've never owned a credit card to.
  • I am though an American citizen

The Plan that I'm thinking of going with:

 

  • 450 Minutes
  • Nights & Weekends at 7 P.M

Some questions about the plan:

 

  • Is it unlimited minutes when I talk to people with other cellphone providers
  • Is it unlimited texts when I send them to people with a different cellphone provider
  • How does the data work? For example if I'm outside and there is no wi-fi acess around and you use the 3G service do they charge you extra?

Sorry for the bother I know I can go to a store and ask these questions but lately there hasn't been time for me to go.
