$25 referral credit for NEW customers available. Go to eBay, Reddit to get one. STRICTLY NO PM's or begging allowed

General Device Unlock Requirements
  • The device you want to unlock has been active for at least six months of paid service on that device.
  • The device is designed for use on and is locked to Cricket's network.
  • The device has not been reported lost or stolen.
  • The device is not associated with a fraudulent account.
If you're an active Cricket customer and believe you meet the eligibility requirements listed above, sign in to My Account to unlock your phone. Some Android phones must be unlocked using the myCricket app.

Non-Cricket customers, please call Customer Support at 1-800-CRICKET (1-800-274-2538).

To request a Cricket Mobile Device unlock, please call or chat with a Cricket Support Advocate, or visit your local Cricket Store.


Stacks with $25 referral credit for NEW customers. Go to eBay, Reddit to get one for free. STRICTLY NO begging allowed


Guide to Maximizing Cricket free phone & $15 plan
STEP 1
If you have a non-AT&T number instead of paying $9.99 for a Cricket SIM kit, you can port into Cricket and get a free Andriod phone which comes with a cricket sim (LG Stylo 5, Galaxy A10e, Moto G7 Supra, Nokia 3.1). You will be asked to prepay for the $55/ $60 plan (basically a 4 month prepay since Cricket prorates credits if you downgrade to the new $15 plan after activation)

If you have an AT&T number, you can purchase a non-AT&T number from eBay for port in (and port your AT&T number to GV to forward to your new non-AT&T number)

STEP 2
After purchasing your Cricket free phone or SIM activation kit, secure a $25 referral coupon from the cricket referral program (available on eBay or Reddit for free). Once a referral code is generated, it expires within 30 days.

$25 referral is only for new accounts (if you are an existing Cricket customer, if you activate your new service on a new account it will be eligible for the $25 referral credit)

STEP 3
IMMEDIATELY after activating your Cricket service, enter your unique referral code emailed to you in the "Everything's Better with Friends" section of the myCricket app or Cricket online website. After inputting code, you will see a 60 day countdown tracker in the "Everything's Better with Friends" on when your $25 credit is credited.

Change your plan to the new $15 plan. You will get the full $45 prorated credit if you downgrade within the first day of activation which will last for 4 months on the new plan.

STEP 4
After 6 months on cricket you can request your free android/ subsidized iPhone to be unlocked

I did this. Did not activate in 30 days and I was told by support that my balance is gone.
This deal is best for existing users to "upgrade" without the fee. I've done it twice this past year, and in both cases the charge for the new account is simply applied to my account credit, and since I never activate the new line, I never actually got a deduction for it. At 30 days of no activation of the new line, they simply expired the new line, and the credit was available for charges on my existing lines.

If you're not a customer and don't want to be, then the cost of the first month is essentially the cost of this phone. However, they are all locked, so you need to be certain you can get it unlocked then go for it...or resell it...whatever your intention.

I like my G7. The new G8 power will add the one thing it really needs.. A better camera.

Be careful making changes to your lines. Dropped one line and they turned off my autopay. Service was suspended and had to pay $5 more for my next month. Cricket deal isn't as good as it used to be and weak promos. All other services allow tethering.

I would advise against the Supra/G 7 Power if you spend any time in At&t fringe areas. It's got the worst antenna I've ever used by a good margin. The whole Moto 7 series suffers from bad antennas and I finally sold all of mine a few weeks ago. It's a fantastic phone if you're a city dweller.

Might have just been your phone. One weird thing I have noticed is that if you travel very far (100 miles, eg) you need to reboot it to get a good connection again.

I had two G7 Powers and a G7. I also have a Z3 Play, G6, G6 Play and a few of the Visible E6's that don't suffer from the G7's reception issues. I only tested them with At&t and Sprint.

Looking at the CPU, RAM, storage, battery, and screen of the top 3 phones:
Moto g7 Supra
Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 and Adreno 506
2GB RAM
32GB Internal Storage
3,000 mAh
5.7" IPS 1512x720

LG Stylo 5
Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 and Adreno 506
3GB RAM
32GB Internal Storage
3,500 mAh
6.2" IPS 2160x1080

Galaxy A10e
Exynos 7884 and Mali-G71 MP2
2GB RAM
32GB Internal Storage
3,000 mAh
5.83" PLS TFT 1560x720
Therefore:
Best Processor: Moto (worst = LG)
Best RAM: LG
Best Storage: Equal
Best Battery: LG
Best Screen: LG (worst = Moto)
Looks like it's a hard choice between LG and Moto; do you want a good processor? Go with Moto. Do you want everything else better? Go with LG.
