I was told by a person at telecheck today that all i have to do to be able to write a check without them declining me to retail stores is to pay off the last check that i have on there file. I thought that i remained in there system and coulnt write checks out at the places that use them...???

Hi Melissa, what they told you is true. I recently had a grocery store check go to telecheck and once I paid it there was no problem writing checks again. If you pay it over the phone it gets updated in their computer quicker (I think it was 3 days?) than if you send them payment through the mail (which is I think 10 days.)

HTH!
