Hi everyone,

as the title implies, I am moving to the US in a month from France and I do not have yet a US credit history, nor a SSN yet. There are great deals on new phones but do required a credit history check. Is around here anyone working for T-Movile that could help me on this?

Thanks in advance,

You can get a prepaid service until you are assigned a SSN or a TIN.  Without either one of those or a Student Visa.  You will not be able to get a postpaid account currently.  If you know someone that is a US citizen.  They could always add a line for you to their account until you get everything sorted and get your SSN or TIN.  Then you could do a Change of Responsibility and have that line transfered to your own account.
