Does AT&T offer the option of having someone cosign in the event you do not have qualifying credit?

I am currently on my parents family plan, but I want to set up my own wireless plan. I am interested in participating in AT&T Next, as opposed to the 2-year contract route. I realize that to qualify for either of those options you need qualifying credit. Now, I have average credit, I'm a college student working full-time and trying to build credit. I have doubts that my credit will be approved. I have no other bills, so I would be able to make timely, monthly payments. And I've heard that sometimes when a person is denied approval because of their credit, a wireless provider may impose a deposit. What I want to know is if AT&T gives the option to have someone cosign instead of having to pay the deposit?

I don't believe that they allow co-signers, but you can create your own separate account under your parent's name and credit and change it once your credit has been established
