I don't think so I've had customers coming to my kiosk where I work for a provider and they have came down the line of wireless providers who serve our mall. A Ntelos kiosk starts it followed by an at&t Corporate inline store, Sprint kiosk, USCC Corporate inline store and ending with my kiosk. So far I think all run credit checks. I think some are more lenient than others. So far I've noticed the credit checks I've been able to do for new customers have been killer deposits, but I'm just going on customers who have walked down and just throw their liscense at me and ask for a check. Posting this in the Ntelos forum would get you more looks and a definate answer.
VERIZON DSL SUCKS!! Took 3 weeks to turn on and still didn't work correctly til today making it 4 weeks! Now the issue is this: keep Verizon and use the 2 months of free service or stop the hassle of paying for DSL and a phone line Verizon charges by the min to use and get cable TV and internet through Comcast. Same 6 month price for internet ($19.99) just the addition of TV and a set top box that I will use compared to phone line I don't use. Any suggestions is appreciated through PM.
