IMO credit check

Hey I recently joined the IMO program. I don’t have the best credit and AT&T was asking for a deposit when trying to add a phone, is this supposed to still happen under the IMO account or is there a way to forgo the credit checks?

Hi, @Elyuhsee,


We understand your inclination. However, when a new line is added or a phone is purchased, a credit check will be performed.


Have a great weekend!
