We have been talking to some friends about life after bankruptcy. One of our friends swears he cannot get long distance phone service because of his bankruptcy. This occurred almost 6 years ago. I am not an expert on bankruptcies, but think this is BS. Any truth to this or does he not know what he is talking about ?
Can't get LD phone service after bankruptcy? Bollocks. I was able not only to get LD service after BK7, I switched to a flat-fee provider (The Neighborhood by MCI) for both local AND long distance... and MCI didn't run a credit check against me, nor did they require any sort of deposit. If the #2 long distance provider, and the fastest-growing competitive local exchange carrier, doesn't check your credit or require a deposit for those who have declared BK, why would (most) other local or long-distance providers? Of course, it's not beyond the realm of possibility that he stiffed a LD provider and included that creditor in his BK, in which case LD providers might well not be willing to offer him LD service without a sizable deposit. Still, I think he was blowing smoke up your ***.
