Today most people want and even need the convenience and the security of a cellular phone. To them, convenience means having phone service wherever and whenever they want and security means being able to immediately contact someone in case of an emergency. Many people will use the cellular phone services of major cellular phone providers (such as TMobile and Sprint). Each of these providers will perform credit checks on future clients and will require their customers to sign contracts in order to receive their services. However, many individuals possess bad credit or no credit and therefore will not pass the background credit checks. With a No Credit Check Cell Phone, though, credit checks are quite unnecessary, which ensures such people can obtain a cellular phone service.
Growing in popularity, the No Credit Check Cell Phone provides dependable service as well as several advantages for clients. One such advantage results in a "pay as you go" plan; in other words, clients do not pay a monthly bill--they need only to prepay for the time they wish to use the service. Another advantage that pleases clients is the ability to change providers without facing any penalties since they did not sign a contract.
Additionally, the no-contract phone plans offer some of the same extras as the major cellular phone providers, which also include: voice mail, call waiting, caller ID, 3-way calling, nationwide long distance, and 411 services. Several also offer free weekends and nights, extra "anytime" minutes, and unlimited mobile to mobile minutes. Of course, the minutes do cost--anywhere from 5 cents to 10 cents a minute--which can quickly use up the prepaid amount.
TracFone, Cricket, and Pocket are some of the cell phone providers which offer no contracts, no credit checks, no security deposits, and no activation or cancellation fees. Each one of these have prepaid amounts of $25 and upwards. Phones cost extra for each plan, but usually have rebates ranging from $30 to $50 and higher. Since more people are choosing no contract, no credit check phone service, more major cellular phone service providers are also offering no contract and no credit check plans, such as AT&T with its prepaid GoPhone and TMobile. They have noticed the increasing numbers of customers who are choosing the No Credit Check Cell Phone for their personal and business use and have decided to join in on the competition for these credit-risk individuals.
