Unless there are some unusual circumstances, the answer would be a resounding YES. You might be confusing this issue with the amount of time some credit problems stay on your credit record. Here is more input and advice: * Why wouldn't you? It's your debt and it's your responsibility to pay it back. * Why would you? If it has been 7 years it will fall off your credit report, if you pay it now it will be on the credit report for another 7 years as a paid collection account. * Paying an old collection account will not extend the reporting period for another 7 years. This is a fallacy and is completely incorrect. The Fair Credit Reporting Act establishes time limits for how long derogatory information can be displayed on you credit. You can read the text for yourself by following links at www.ftc.gov * A charge off or other debt being expunged from a credit report does not make the debt invalid or uncollectible. States set SOL's pertaining to open accounts, verbal and written contracts and so forth. The expiration of the state SOL for credit card debt simply means that the creditor cannot file a lawsuit. Statutes of Limitations are subject to interpretation by the presiding judge and other circumstances, for example if the debtor paid even a token amount on a debt the SOL could be invalid. If sued it is the debtor/defendant's responsibility to envoke the SOL expiration as a defense, it is not automatically granted.
It is possible to recover from a bankruptcy. You should start by getting a secured credit card to rebuild credit. After about seven years you should be able to find a standard credit card that will allow you to get a card.
Call the bank and sort it out
Yes. Even though the chargeoff line item should come off of the credit report in seven years, the credit card company may attempt to collect their debt for as long as they wish (assuming no fair credit collection laws are broken in the process).

as long as it remains a part of your credit report, 7 years.
The lien is probably still in place, and the fact that it was filed is still on your credit file.
The "seven year" thing is somewhat obsolete for a few reasons. 1. Chapter 7 stays TEN years, not 7. Chapter 13 stays seven. 2. Many, many lenders will offer credit before that time frame is up. In under a year from discharge, some subprime credit card companies might offer you a small card. After about 3 - 4 years about 50% of "prime" lenders will do at least something for you if you have re-established some credit. Do this right and the "gap" will be nonexistent.

No, in order to actually use the credit card you need at activate it. But many years ago when they just sent you the cards, I was 18 years (this was 1986) I got a Lazurus credit card, I never used it, just hung on it "in case".

There are available credit card companies that offer a chance for people to have credit cards even though they don't have a credit card history.

You can get a credit card starting out with a small limit. If that still doesn't work look at getting a pre paid credit card to build credit. Bill payments on utilities are a great way to build credit.
