This same exact thing happened to me with Verizon Wireless. I was told it was a soft inquiry but NOPE. I got dinged by three points, which was enough to bring me below the 620 threshold I had worked so hard to attain. I know that 620 is a crap score but considering I was in the low 500s two years ago, for me it was like climbing a mountain. I was furious with Verizon for deceiving me. Now I think that maybe the customer service rep was just misinformed, because it sounds like the corporate folks at the top of the mobile phone companies are feeding bad information down the totem pole. Shame, because it really hurts folks like us, who are trying hard to increase that pesky score.
