I need to get a new cell phone plan as my current provider is not working out for me. I know cell phone companies often pull a credit check when you sign up and I'm curious if this is considered a hard pull or a soft?
Im' trying to avoid any hard pulls because I'm getting close to shopping for a mortgage.

+1 cell phones, utilities, and cable companies are almost always soft pulls. You can ask them though when you go to set it up to confirm it is a soft pull.
