The reason why I am interested in my FICO score is because I want to take advantage of these low mortgage loan rates. But I do not want to apply for too many loans only to find out I cannot do it.

Well, with a FICO of about 650 (and it will get better as time wears on) you should be able to get some kind of loan to buy a house, though it may not be at the very best rate.

As for the cellular phone, with the FICO you now have you should be able to sign up for a new account with a different provider if the one you're on isn't working with you. I'd say check around.
