Re: Credit check

Re: Credit check

I was on the phone for an hour last night. I lock my credit reports down. It's a cost every time I open them. But I like being secure. I don't finance much. But when Comcast offered BYOD I thought great!. All I'm paying for its data and already have service. Go to the store, credit check... Ummmmmmmmmmm for what? 2 GB of data? Really? I totally get it if I'm buying phones. But for BYOD customers that's just stupid. Take a inquiry for THAT? STUPID BUSINESS model Comcast.

Re: Credit check

RobertVol, a credit check is required to start service regardless of how the phone is added to the account (BYOD or purchase).

You must have Comcast internet to sign up for Xfinity Mobile, and a credit check may be required for some customers but not all. If we need to gather this information we will ask before performing the credit check.

Re: Credit check

You missed the point. I understood whether you brought your own phone or not it's a credit check. The point is hard credit checks for data on a phone brought by the consumer is no risk when the consumer is ALREADY A comcast customer with high speed internet. 2gb of data with no risk of needing to recover any hardware and adding hard pulls on someone's credit is still a stupid pricing model.
