no idea but blue skying

 

No SSN = No credit history =-  immediate security deposit required for the contract. For a iphone would suspect that the price you list is on the low side, have seen reports of 500 - 1200 for the deposit.

 

 In addition remember that at this time and for the foreseeable future NO ATT sold Iphone will be unlocked  for use on other networks.  If you are planning on doing that then go to apple and purchase the unlocked version for the full retail price, then get a no contract plan from ATT. Will cost you about the same if you figure in the security deposit required for the subsidized phone.

Wingrider is correct. You can get a phone and service with AT&T if you don't have a SSN. You'll just have to pay a deposit to do so. 

 

I would recommend going to a retail store and ask one of the representatives to help get you set up with an account and phone.
