All major cellphone companies allow users to pay in person at stores or authorized retailers. In most cases, it is necessary to have the account number associated with the phone in order to make a payment.
In-person payments can generally be made by cash or personal check. Some providers do not allow customers to pay by credit card at in-store locations. It is recommended that customers bring a valid ID such as a drivers license, as well as a page from their most recent bill to ensure that their payment is properly credited to their account. Some restrictions may apply to customers attempting to pay in person outside of the provider's service area.
