Should I go sign up for the contract now?

My credit history is not good at all. I don't want to be let down on June 4th. I pre ordered from the Shack ....but no credit history check was run.

Will they allow me to fill out the paper work right now? ...I guess I can call....lol but what did you guys do? has anybody filled out the paper work yet?
You don't have to set up the contract now. Just call them up and they will do they same credit check they do for you when you purchase the phone and if you're credit passes they will give you a number to give to the place so they don't have to run your credit again.

I can verify that the above post is correct. I just went through this process last week.

I called Sprint Customer Service @ 1-888-211-4727 number and they did a credit check on me; keep in mind that I had to file chapter 7 due to a failed business and got my discharge letter in Sept 2009, so I was a little concerned to say the least!

To my suprise, the rep on the phone advised me that I could get up to 5 lines with no deposit or spending limits! They advised that I go into any Sprint/RS/BB store, and they could call Sprint to confirm.

I went to my local RS and true to their word, everything played out as I was told. I placed my preorder and painstakingly await June 4!

Give it a shot! The worst that could happen is that they say no, which could benefit you by giving you the opportunity to come up with a backup plan!;)
