Opening a line with T-Mobile and phone payments

quirozr2000

    Greetings community,

     

    I am interested in moving to T-Mobile from MetroPCS, primarily because I am in need of a new phone and T-Mobile offers monthly payments. My question is will I require a credit score in order to qualify for this form of payment? (Unfortunately, I cannot ask my parents to open a line in their name because of personal circumstances) I am currently 17, turning 18 in March ( I understand that I must have an adult with me to sign any contract in order to be in compliance with federal laws) and I have learned that credit scores are a significant factor in qualifying for this option. I am working and would be able to make monthly payments, I wish to know what my options are. I welcome any answers and appreciate any help provided to me.

     

    Many thanks!
