We are living in the wireless age. Cordless phones marked the entry into the wireless era followed by pagers. Both these inventions had their own disadvantages like only minimum distance can be covered using cordless phone, only texting is possible using pagers etc. Leaving all these gadgets aside, then came a invention. This invention is quoted as cellular revolution.
Mobile phones marked their entry in early 90s. It was a very expensive gadget then and was very rarely used by the people. With passage of time, things have changed tremendously. At present, cellular phones are part of our life. Indeed it is now difficult to think about no mobile communication. The main outstanding features of the cell phones are the compact size and presence of all the facilities that play a vital role in this sophisticated life. The number of mobile service providers have also increased. They are all up with number of different plans. Anybody can get a mobile connection anytime. The situation differs for a person having bad credit history.
Getting a connection with bad credit is definitely challenging. Most of the service providers check the credit history. This is done to make sure that the applicant will be able to make the payments. There are only few providers who are ready to help those with bad credit. The best part to be done if you are having a bad credit history is to approach the service provider directly rather than going through an agent. Always present yourself as a bad creditor rather than showing low credit history. There are certain payment plans where handset is given along with the connection. In that case, the applicant should always opt for a low cost handset rather than going for an expensive one. Sometimes, the providers will provide only a used handset due to the credit factor. If the applicant is already having a handset, then choose only SIM contacts where connections are given and not the handset. In some case, the service providers can take an initial deposit that can go up to $1000. This plan may not be favorable like the other plans offered to those with good credit history. The terms and conditions are you should sign up the contract for a longer period of time. You will have to pay more for texting and calls . You may not get an attractive handset with all the features etc.There are also options for getting prepayment plans were the amount has to be paid in advance in order to use the connection. As per this plan you need not have to give any initial deposit. Also you will have to provide monthly rent and there will be always a limit for making calls and texting.Sometimes the plan offers free text and free call minutes.
Another way to get a good mobile connection inspite of the bad credit is by having a cosigner. The cosigner will be having a very good credit history and he will take a phone connection for you on his behalf. In this case, the phone companies will provide the connection without any hesitation. If you fail to make any payment on the mobile phone contract at any cost, legal actions will be taken against your co signer.The service provider also offers free phone calls to gas, electricity stations etc mainly for bad credit profiles. In order to upgrade the existing plan, the service provider should develop a trust with the user by doing timely payments on the bills.
This article shows various options for people with bad credit history to take a mobile contract and also the disadvantages faced by them because of their bad credit history.
