Re: Hard inquiry from ADT???

In my experience, the vast majority of post-paid utility/service providers do a hard credit pull.  Only ones in past 5 years I can think of who didn't were the local municipal utility (which never reports even in delinquency) and Public Storage (which is actually pre-paid, plus they have the contents of your unit as collateral).

 

It's definitely the norm to get pulled by security companies and cell phone networks.
