    Default Sprint deposit

    Hi,

    Does anyone know the current highest deposit sprint asks for with a person with BAD credit?

    Last I saw was $250 back in 2012.

    Verizon wants $400.

    I am trying to decide between the two.

    Thx!

    I have never had to pay one but I think the numbers you listed are good. Or just due the finance options. They are free and 0 percent for everyone.

    I'm pretty sure that with Sprint, if they don't like your credit then they will put you on a "spending limit" where you're account balance isn't allowed to go over a certain amount (say $500). They charge you $5/mo to have the spending limit on your account. If your account is in good standing (no late payments) for a certain length of time then you can have the spending limit removed.
    Mine- Sprint: Palm 700p, Palm Treo Pro, HTC Touch, HP Palm Pre, Motorola Admiral, Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G (Jellybean 4.2.2);
    AT&T: Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (4.4.2)
    Wife's - Sprint: HP Palm Pre, LG Viper 4G LTE (ICS); Vizio VTAB1008 Tablet (Honeycomb); AT&T: Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (4.4.2)
    Daughters' - Nabi2 tablets (ICS)

    I have the WORST Credit known to man, and verizon let me get 2 new phones, for free, with no deposit!
    Sprint will require a deposit, but will lower it and put you on a spending limit... As long as you stay below the $300 limit, your service will not get interrupted.. i was a pro at being behind with SPRINT! Also, you will get the FULL DEPOSIT back after the first year even if you sign a 2 year agreement

    I work at Best Buy and when I see Sprint require a deposit its always $150 per line with a spending limit of $150.
