Re: Do I need a credit check to start a new plan? What if I have no credit history?

Yes, each new plan (account) does require a credit check.

If you simply have no credit, chances are pretty good that you'll be able to start with little or no deposit.  You may have a Account Spending Limit, which is just a maximum your bill can be each month.  You may also have to set up automatic payments or be charged a small monthly fee. 

If you have troubled credit, there may be a deposit required in addition to the Spending Limit.  Sprint is very good in working with customers who want to establish or re-establish credit.

Barring that, Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile also offer some outstanding deals on phones and service, with no credit check. 

Thanks, and good luck!
