    Does anyone know the maximum AT&T will ask for a security deposit on a new line of service?

    Don't know if it's the maximum, but they wanted $150 per line from My daughter and son-in-law.

    It used to be a maximum of $500, though I don't know anyone who was asked to go that high. Most anyone I know that was asked to pay one was around $150.

    I had to pay around $150 for mine, and that was about 6 months ago.

    Back in 2002 they asked me for an $800 deposit. I was 18,I guess a lot of young'uns at the time had screwed them over or something. Needless to say I stuck with prepaid for a while.

    I'm sure things have changed since then.

    Deposits are in case the customer doesn't pay for their service. It's stupid but all major carriers do this.

    Based on credit? I've never had to leave a deposit. Even when I was 17 and getting Cingular back in 2000 :/

    They really ask to leave them $150?

    I know Sprint and T-Mobile don't do this. But Sprint did give me a spending limit of $150/month, which my bill never went above $80.

    I thought Sprint had a limit of $250? Guess I could be wrong. Then again j didn't need one too.

    I work as an Indirect selling both AT&T and Verizon. I've actually seen AT&T deposits up to $750 and yes that was for ONE line. Blew me away. Most of the ones I have seen were $350.
