TMobile does hard credit pulls but claims they’re soft pulls.
This negatively affects your credit score by 5-10 points for 1 year.
Do cell phone companies do a hard or soft credit check?
Most cellphone providers will check your credit before approving you for a contract. Similar to lenders, cell phone companies pull your credit in order to evaluate your risk. They want to see how likely you are to pay your cell phone bill on time. This type of credit check is a hard inquiry.
Is T Mobile credit check hard or soft?
It doesn’t use the term “hard inquiry.” It’ll only say that mentions that it may be effected if you’re credit is checked. I understand the difference between the two and what you’re asking for, but our terms don’t specifically mention that we do soft credit checks, only that it may impact your credit if we do.
What credit score does TMobile use?
It is to your advantage to know what credit report they’d pull. There are three different credit bureaus that store your credit history: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.

Does Frontier run a hard credit check?
When setting up a new order, Frontier customers are required to provide either a social security number or a driver’s license number for the credit check. Early in the order entry process there is a soft credit check. This will be a hard credit check, which means it will show on the customer’s credit report.
