I'm 17 and I'll be turning 18 in a few months. I have regular employment. I was wondering if I could buy a phone with MTS

Hi Elias,

Thanks for your interest in becoming an MTS Customer! We do require you to be 18 in order to sign a contract under your own name and be legally responsible for it. 

If you are keen on signing up immediately, you would need someone of age to sign up for you and then you'd be able to do a Transfer of Service into your name after you celebrate your birthday. 

When establishing service, we will need to run a credit check on you and if required you would need to put down a credit deposit which would be held on file for 6 months.
