Paid off cell debt, can I get another phone

I have cell phone debt with ATT. The debt is over 3 years old. If I completely pay it off, can I get another ATT phone in my name? The debt is in collections, and I have paid on it through out the years.

probably better to get a gophone, you can be assured a hefty security deposit will be wanted for a 2 year contract subsidized phone

I thought about that, but I want to buy the phone for full price, and just have a month to month contract, but I don't know if they will even allow me to have wireless service with their company period

even with a month to month contract a credit check is run

If you're not wanting a subsidized phone, I'd recommend Go Phone.
