$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.

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

Can I port in mint mobile?
Yes, I just did exactly that. You'll have to call Mint to get your account number if you haven't previously however.

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.
So if I have no intention of continuing after a month, its the cost of the first month plus activation ($25) correct? Any way to waive activation for new customers?

I have the chase offer and I could port a number from Visible deal, but would really be slick and maybe worth it if I could get around activation fee.

i got in on this deal awhile ago. i got 3 supras and 1 stylo. total cost was $100. i sold 1 of each for a bit over $100 each and kept 2 supras for the wife and daughter. so i got two phones and made a bit of money. my wife loves the supra, more than her pixel 2XL, mainly for the never ending battery life.

Cricket must be feeling the pressure from Visible with these free phone offerings. We switched to Visible after 6-7 years with Cricket. Way better deal.

Humm interesting, so would i essentially use the same procedure that @dirtcheapdad outlined previously except mine would be a new acct / port in line?

I'm interested in the G7 Supra so cost would be $60 (one month service) minus $25 (chase offer) = $35, no activation fee - Am I missing anything?

Are any of the other phones in the other categories worth it (i.e., LG Escape, Fortune, Samsung J2)? Looking for backup phone and was going to use the Moto e6 for that from Visible but might just sell that and use something nicer from one of these...

People acting like this is a slam dunk over the Stylo are mistaken imo. The Stylo's battery is 30% smaller and the processor is 10ish % slower or so but it has a significantly higher resolution screen (390 dpi vs 274) while the Supra's screen is a longer aspect ratio with a notch, neither of which I'm a fan of.

So the Stylo's screen is better in 3 different and important ways, to me personally at least, plus it has some other small advantages that add up like the screen also being slightly larger (99.20 cm² vs 95.95 cm²) and the Supra weighing slightly over 10% more and being thicker to a similar degree. That kind of thing may not seem like much but it's surprisingly noticeable on a handheld device.

So then you throw in the stylus for the Stylo 5, which I don't particularly care about myself but I'm sure some do, and really it's a judgement call imo whether you prefer the bigger battery and slightly better processor of the Supra vs the better screen and other little things the Stylo has to offer.

Looking back through the thread it seems really only Supra or Stylo would be worth it. Does Stylo work on Verizon? Fact that Supra doesnt matters since I'm on Verizon now with BYOD.

Attunlockcode dot com has unlocked 3 for me. They are working fine on T-mobile network.
They unlock using USB and change the IMEI # for $26. After unlocking this way they will not work on Verizon and Sprint.
Which device?

The G7 Supra is only device on this list worth getting, the rest are complete junk.

No, doesn't have Verizon's LTE bands.
For the specs, it has most (if not all) Verizon LTE bands include B2/4/13
