Re: Transfer of ownership - NEW CONTRACT???

A change of responsibility is, in effect a whole new transaction, as the original contract is with the person responsible for the account, whereas you are still an unknown quantity to T-Mobile, credit wise. Therefore, no matter how long the line has been active, a change to a different billing name will require a credit check and a new one year contract. That being said, it doesn't matter whether the line is under contract when it's moved to a different account, and if you have discount available toward handset upgrade, there's no reason why you shouldn't upgrade with your current discount, put the line under contract, and then transfer the line to your own account. That way, it all works out, see?
