    So I want to buy the 1520. I'm not with at&t right now and I want to buy the 1520 outright. Whats the process for people not currently with at&t? Will I still need to put down a deposit due to not having any credit even if I'm bringing my own phone?

    I don't think bringing your own device makes any difference. You will probably still have to submit to a credit check if you don't currently have service with them. If they require a deposit and you're not comfortable with that, you may want to consider a prepaid plan. From what I understand, there are some really good plans these days. Of course, the provider would have to be compatible with your device.

    If you mean outright as in no-contract couldn't you buy it elsewhere for cheaper? The Microsoft Store has it for $450 USD compared to $585 at AT&T.

    Have you looked at ATT's Go Phone program? Same network, no credit check, 1520 should work just fine. I have a few members in my extended family using it with gently used Windows phones (i.e phones I'm done playing with) just fine.

    For ATT's "classic" service, there is going to be a credit check and a possible request for deposit, even on month-month (I don't do contracts typically either).

    You only supply your SSN if you are opening a new contract. If you are buying a phone outright without signing a new contract, you just buy it and don't give any SSN. You only provide SSN if you are signing a new contract.

    Actually you do need your social even if you buy the phone outright. Even if you don't do a two year contract, post paid phones are still a month to month contract with a credit check. Only way around that is GoPhone. 60 bucks gets you 2 gigs and unlimited talk and unlimited text with at&t :)
