    Pass T-Mobile credit check online without actually buying the phone?

    I just had a frustrating conversation with a T-Mo chat employee on their website. I was trying to get as far through the ordering process as possible (without actually buying anything) to see if I was eligible for a subsidized G2 with a 2 year EM contract.

    After entering my address, DL#, CC#, etc, I got as far as the "Review" page where it tells you the price of the phone plus tax and gives you a "Place Order" button. Does this mean I was approved or not?

    Since I was unsure, I started a chat with a T-Mo rep and she made it sound like the only way I could see if I was eligible was to go ahead buy the phone! She was kind of strangely insistent that I press the order button, so I asked her again point blank, and she said that I could only back out of the order after clicking the button if I was NOT eligible.

    I really don't want to go down to the T-Mobile store to buy this phone unless I know ahead of time I won't be rejected - this is a small, country town full of curtain-twitching busybodies, if you know what I mean...

    You have to completely go through the check out before it will run you. I had to call in after I got a review message to verify some info, I don't believe you will be able to do what you want

    Speaks for itself, Sprint. Try more actions and not lip service.

    Go ahead & do it. Tmobile will likely give you the phone 600+ credit score. Most people bankruptcy included have 600+ credit score if you have a job & pay most of your bills on time.

    Yes, T-Mobile seems to be really, really nice about credit.

    For me was different since i went to the store first to check if i was approved by Tmobile, and they told me yes you have up to this much to buy phones... then i went online because they have better phone prices and deals online than the store knowing already that i was gonna be approved and i got my HD2 for free...

    This story has a happy ending - I was approved for 10 lines and no deposit required! T-Mobile does indeed have very lenient credit.
