LOL, good luck with that, I have moved twice and twice Comcast has messed my account up. Here's what they tell you when you move your account does not move they create you a new account at the new address, which is a bunch of BS, anyway my old account was Gregski@comcast.net and the new one they game me was something as rediculous as FirstNameLastName1234@comcast.net for which I could not alias with Gregski because the system said it was taken but I could not transfer it to the new account although the old account was also mine and I could log in to both
so just tell them you are moving and drop on your knees and pray, and what ever happens happens, you will most likely be given a self installation kit and then charged for doing your own install, and then they will send a tech out to your house and charge you for the service call as well, oh and some kid will show up to your old house and cut your old cable wire ie "disconnect" your service because they get paid like $35 bucks for a disconnect, and it's easy money for them if they are in the area

It won't ruin your credit for the rest of your life. All you have to do is dispute of your credit reports. Also, if the debt remains on your credit report. You can put a statement under that & it is usually ignored by Fico. unpaid debts over 7 year except Bankruptcy, must be removed off your credit reports. I know this from reading a credit board forum.

Basically what you posted is correct. HOWEVER ...
a. If a bad debt is sold to a collection agency or taken to court, those actions ALSO are on the credit report ... in addition to the original. One can have a bad debt reported - then collection agency on same debt - THEN either another collection agency or court action: 3 or 4 hits on a credit report for ONE problem.
b. Many collection agencies and even some businesses engage in "credit report poisoning". That means, they continue to adjust the date on the debt so that it NEVER falls off. Had that happen to me.
c. A bad debt/collection/slow pay with a utility can pose havoc when trying to get service with another company. Eg. trying to get satellite TV with a Comcast bad debt, etc.
Please", "thank you" and "you're welcome" never go out of style.

Missylaneous, that might be true but that is illegal according to credit boards posters. You got to keep disputing the debt. It took me one year to correct an error on one Credit Bureau and that after they told me to stop contacting them. I keep contacting them. They finally fixed it. I also put a credit freeze reports. This way no jobs or places I rent will touch my credit report. I get my information from creditboards.com forums. On the Original debt, it should show transferred. It also illegal to re-age the debt. You can dispute that all that as well.
I thought direct, dish had prepaid plans without having to do credit checks.
Some companies now require autobill if you credit is bad or frozen. They will take checks, debit card or credit cards.
