Some types of credit accounts will report to the credit reporting agencies, while others will not. Unfortunately, cell phone accounts, as well as rent and utility contracts, will not help build your credit. It’s important to know, though, that if one of these accounts becomes delinquent and is sent to a collection agency, that will show up on your report as a prominent negative mark.
