If you have bad credit it can be very difficult to get a cell phone plan. Many cellular phone carriers run credit checks before they will give you a plan, and if you have bad credit they may deny you. This article will guide you on how to get a cell phone plan if you have bad credit.

In Canada, all phone companies run credit checks for post-paid accounts ("contracts"). I would recommend finding the best prepaid plan that includes almost all the features of a regular contract plan (minus a few bonuses, usually).

In this economy, I was having credit issues myself. Luckily I signed up with Net10, who does not run a credit check. There's no contract, and you can prepay for however many minutes you can afford. I have their unlimited plan, where I only pay $50 a month and get unlimited minutes, texts, and web. Great coverage too since they use the AT&T or Verizon networks, depending on which is stronger in your area. Definitely worth a look if you're struggling with credit and want a good deal.
