what happens if you don't pay your credit card bill at all? can they take you to court or anything?

worst case sernio... (what im going through now) is that they can take you to court and put a judgement on it. then they will take it out of your paycheck. 15% of each pay till its done... so i would pay it if i was you. or settle something..

Another type of credit card that can help build credit is one from a department store. However somtimes those often require a major credit card. But for a young person the shops at a major store such as Old Navy then getting a credit card from that store may be beneficial to that person.

yeah I was in the same situation. But mine was a car loan. They took me to court and we negotiated a settlement. But it still appears as a negative on my credit report... for right now, at least.

Yeah they can, if they feel the amount is large enough for them to undergo the charges. If they don't take you to court, it'll be a BIG negative on your credit report and they'll keep calling and harrassing you lol.

agreed, but the creditor will never cancel or close your account without a person's consent. the only way they can do that is if you don't pay your bill...

but yeah, its better to use your credit cards regularly, just make sure u only spend amounts of money you can pay back. Keep doing this and it will show a good credit history. The reason credit companies don't like to see accts that are not active is because they need to see that you know how to pay your bills on time. and if you don't have a credit history, its impossible for them to do this.
i used to believe that was the case but i heard recently that creditors are starting to tighten credit and they are closing accounts they deem to be a risk, i hope this never happens to anyone here, i read about it in a couple of places, them just clsing cards becasue of the access to too much credit and cash in relation to peoples income, has anyone else heard of this?

So what's a great recommened start up card for a college student?
i think citicard platinum select card for students is good, they have a good credit protector program so if you are late on a payment it wont report negative on your credit as long as you notify them and top of this they give u a generous credit line and they have excellent cutomer service. i have had experiences with amex, citi, chase, capone and wells fargo:citi,capone and amex people have always been the best customer service wise, wf is the absolute worse,chase is in the middle but i have had friends who have had horrible experiences with chase. I would say do not get a wells fargo card, they have possibly the worst customer service and are very bad about notifying you about card status. If you are going to get an amex i would recommend starting with the student blue card cuz the charge cards with no limits are dangerous even to long time credit card holders (think about nicole richies charge syndrome in the simple life, anyone can get charge disease when they carry those amex charge cards) cuz u can literally charge whatever they deem you can pay on the card, and if you never miss payments and charge alot, you can end up charging huge purchases on a charge card that must be paid-in-full monthly (i have heard of people chargings 120000 s-classes on their amex charge cards) if you screw up with an amex charge card and charge more than you can pay, they will have in their records that you were past due if you did not pay the entire balance from the statement that month, even if you paid a large amount of the purchases off (which i did, luckily i paid it off in time with some help from my awesome parents and still hold the card) they will teach you a lesson and you will not want to make a mistake with them again becasue it is a serious privilege to hold an amex charge card. Again, overall i recommend the citi or the capone as a starter, both excellent customer service programs, but i really think the citi credit protector is better and would recommend you get the card and credit protector as a student. After college its a whole diffnt ballgame, youll have lots of disposable income and probably be able to carry an amex or large credit lie cards with any creditor but for buildding excellent credit initially the citi or capone. I hope you get some good advice and have an excellent credit experience.

a cell phone is considered a utility and will only affect your credit if you default on the payment and it is cancelled and sent to collection. however, stop helping n*ggas at ur expense.

if u pay your phone bill late...thats a credit slash if u don't know other people can see that and it label u as a delinquent
I don't think this applies if you only pay your bill a month or so late. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong. I don't believe my phone history is reported to the credetors monthly.

nah, your cell phone payments aren't reported monthly. but they will warn you that your account will be sent to collections if you wait too long to pay it, especially after they've cut off your phone. they usually send out notices after it being about 60-90 days late. but the amount of time is subjective, it varies with each cell phone company.

I have a student card with bank of americqa should my apr be over 19% i think that is too high I went over the limit for a emergency but i think my apr is too high and right now i can't afford the monthly payments. i was very diligent but i had an emergency.. but should a student card be that high on a apr and if so how can I lower it. because i don't want to be delinquent just because i can't make the payments

with bank of america, going over you limit raises your APR if you were on an introductory rate which knowing BOA you were. even if you get the over limit under limit, your APR will not go down. best thing is to get a new low balance transfer APR and transfer the balance. try discover student card or chase visa.

some prepaid cards do but after all the fees you pay for transactions, it a waste of time. it takes too long to build anything when you can go to other companies and at least get a partially secured card or something.
