Identity theft: is there any way for me to monitor for accounts opened without a credit check?

I appear to be an ID theft victim, and the thief may have my SSN and DOB.
I have locked down all of my accounts to the extent that I can, I think (fraud alerts and freezes with all three credit unions and ChexSystems, related credit card cancelled, all pwds on accounts that involve cash transactions changed + strong) to the extent that I can, and have checked all of my credit reports (clean, so far).
Is there any way to keep an eye out for accounts (e.g. phone, utility) opened without credit checks, though? Or do I just have to wait for a collections agent to call?
