But even if you get a Bold, you are still looking at going through a credit check to get a line with AT&T, which they have to do. Deposits once you get approved range from $0-$700. It's insane!
But yes, if you bought a Bold from someone, ebay, craigslist, etc, make sure the IMEI is clear, it doesn't have to be unlocked, but if Alltell has the Bold, then having the Bold unlocked would allow you to use it on Altells network (assuming they use GSM).
At the same time, with a fully bought Bold, you can use it on AT&T with a no contract plan, but you would still be subject to the credit check.
