International students usually do not have a credit history or social security number in the USA. Therefore, some cell phone providers may charge a deposit of up to $500 to start your post-paid monthly plan.

NOTE: We recommend you explore all options available including the pre-paid plans. Unlike certain countries, cell phone providers in the USA may have fixed term contracts (i.e. two year contract).
