Re: BOA secured UPGRADE

what pc did you get ?

was it another hard apart from the one you got when it unsecured ?

i d love to do a pc i just hate the af..the guy i talked to assured me that graduation is done with no hard so as soon as i ended the call i checked my report and bang one big hard from boa i thought the guy knew what he was talking about you know what i really want to dispute it......but not sure what would be the outcome nor how to do it ?

Visa World Points I heard there is always a hard when you call to unsecure but if it auto unsacures it's a soft. There was no hard for the PC.

thanks mjbfan79 ! 

did you use a backdoor # to get it done ? and how sure are you about the af being waived ? (i read a lot about pc's from secured cards that keep af)

Not sure what number i called. I was told over the phone twice that my card no longer has a AF. My card will be one year old in August so i will find out for sure then.

When i called they did it right away i was told i would get my new card in the mail in about 3 weeks which i did. It's all about who u get on the phone when u call but good luck with that.
