Not sure which forum this belongs in but I have found someone to take my ... General Blackberry forum
? about the process of selling contract
Not sure which forum this belongs in but I have found someone to take my curve and tmo contract off my hands and was wondering how this works. Do they have to pay any new fees(activation down payment idk)do they need to have a credit check?do I just do this at a tmo store or over phone?Or can I even sell my contract?
I would think TMO would allow this, but I'm sure they will try to get a new activation fee!
Call customer service, and tell them that another party will be paying your bill for the time being (which is true).
Have them change the name/address to the new user's info. Go into your BIS account, and delete your Tmobile email, and create one for the new user.
Actually this is not unheard of and referred to as an "assumption of liability". I do not believe that there are any fees involved and the contract term (length) is unchanged. I would not be surprised if they ran a credit check (just as they would with any new post pay account).
You should be able to accomplish this over the phone if both parties are available, or at the store if you prefer.
And to be safe, this is the only way that I would handle this. If you simply change the billing address as suggested above, then any future payments are still your responsibility.
Handled properly you are permanently off the hook for this contract.
Just like Gary said it is assumption of liability they do run a credit check and if it is a post pay line and the other person is not approved for postpay they will not be able to take it over. There shouldnt be any fees involved but your probably better off doing it at a T-Mobile retail store than over the phone.
Everything is always better handled at the store.
800 number will tell you one thing. then the store will tell you another.
But i believe my cousin did this kind of thing with a friend of his. and they just changed the names and stuff on the account, no credit check
altho it was for AT&T not our beautiful tmo
Doh! Didn't think about the credit check! Thanks Gary.
I know for a fact you have to do the credit check on TMO and ATT
I hope this dude passes tmo credit check.. I got in with no deposit his credit shouldn't be as bad as mine.thanks all
