LOCKED to Cricket- requires 6 months service to unlock. Stacks with $25 referral credit for NEW account. Existing cricket customers also can get $50 credit read wiki .

Search eBay for "$25 cricket credit iphone"- the FREE referral link is in the eBay item description here's no need to pay $0.99. REMEMBER sharing, advertising, or PMing referrals is a VIOLATION of SD rules & can result in a BAN


EXISTING
Cricket Customers


STEP 1
Create a new account to purchase the phone. You can self refer and both your existing and new accounts will each get $25

If you have a non-AT&T number, you can port into Cricket. If you have an AT&T number, you can purchase a non-AT&T number from eBay

STEP 2
Before purchasing your free iphone with the new email address, generate the $25 referral coupon from your existing cricket amount. (Search eBay for "$25 cricket credit iphone"- the FREE referral link is in the eBay item description here's no need to pay $0.99) REMEMBER sharing, advertising, or PMing referrals is a VIOLATION of SD rules & can result in a BAN

Your referral code expires 30 days from generation- purchase and activate during this time period

STEP 3
IMMEDIATELY after activating your new phone, 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 referral code, you will see a 60 day countdown tracker in the "Everything's Better with Friends" on when your $25 credit is credited.

Downgrade immediately your plan to the $30 plan. You will get the full $30 prorated credit if you downgrade within the first day of activation.

STEP 4
After 2 months on cricket plan, both your new and old accounts are credited each with the $25 referral. 2-3 days before your third month is charged on your new account, call cricket customer service to merge your new account with your old account ensuring your $25 credit from the new account is transferred/ merged with your old account and then cancel that additional line that was merged


NEW
Cricket Customers


STEP 1
If you have a non-AT&T number, you can port into Cricket. If you have an AT&T number, you can purchase a non-AT&T number from eBay

STEP 2
After purchasing your free phone, immediately secure a $25 referral coupon from the cricket referral program (Search eBay for "$25 cricket credit iphone"- the FREE referral link is in the eBay item description here's no need to pay $0.99) REMEMBER sharing, advertising, or PMing referrals is a VIOLATION of SD rules & can result in a BAN.

Once a referral code is generated, it expires within 30 days.

STEP 3
IMMEDIATELY after activating your new phone, 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 referral 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 $30 plan. You will get the full $30 prorated credit if you downgrade within the first day of activation. You should now have 2 full months of service with the $60 you prepaid and just have to pay $5 more for an extra third month of service. After 6 months on cricket you can request your free cricket phone to be unlocked

RSIM15 Instructions

This is what worked for me:

I activated Cricket service, set up the phone under my Apple ID, and also updated to the latest iOS. All that with Cricket SIM in tray, as per usual. [Did try to power on the phone for the first time with my preferred carrier's SIM (T-mobile) just to test if the phone comes unlocked but no luck there. It's locked.

To work with your carrier of choice, try RSIM plus carrier's SIM in tray. If you get the pop-up menu, code the ICCID as per instructions. I did not get the menu and was unable to change the ICCID that way.

The workaround was to remove the carrier's SIM and inserted Cricket SIM but with RSIM still in the tray. Then go to "Settings" - "Cellular" - "SIM Applications" - "Edit ICCID" and enter the most recent ICCID number (you can find one here: https://geveystore.com/).

After coding is done, remove Cricket's SIM, insert your carrier's SIM (again, with RSIM still in the tray), and you should be able to register on the carrier's network. I think I needed an extra reboot or two and had to enter Apple ID / Password to proceed.

After the phone connects on your desired carrier, be sure to navigate to Settings - Cellular - Cellular Data Network to ensure the APN settings for your carrier are entered correctly. For T-Mobile, use info found here: https://www.t-mobile.com/support/...ple-iphone

After submitting port in request, will there be several days of gap (old service stop, new service not yet ready) before activation on cricket?

What if I never activate the sim card from cricket, will I continue to use the plan of my old provider? Thanks
When I ported in my Tracfone number, it was working up to the point of activating the new service on Cricket. For a moment, two phones were ringing at the same time. Don't know how long that took since I removed the Tracfone SIM card from the phone right after the Cricket one started ringing. In other words, no gap in service.

Not sure what happens if you end up never activating Cricket service.....

I dont think rsim works any more, any one successfully tried recently?
Yes, see my post on the second page. RSIM14 works just fine. What sometimes does not work is the RSIM popup menu (needed to change the ICCID code). The trick is to change the ICCID using RSIM and the original (Cricket) SIM card inserted into the phone first. Go to Settings - Cellular - SIM Applications and change the ICCID. Once that's done, remove the Cricket SIM, insert the SIM of your choice (but keeping RSIM in the tray at all times) and you should be all set with the carrier of your choice.

six month of service can be started anytime right? If I buy now but will start to use it like in half year (once my red pocket expired) and then use it on cricket for 6 months I can still unlock it right?

Bought mine in Dec 2019 from a seller who does not appear to carry those any longer. Just search ebay for RSIM14+/RSIM15 and pick a reputable seller who is US based. Would not spend more than $10 (that's how much I paid).

2 for $90? I thought each was $60 in service, so 2 for $120 no?

I jumped on this deal last week when it was posted "on sale" for $49 (plus $60 plan). Thought I stole it for the entire week until I saw an updated offer on Cricket's website today and started reading about the deal on the original thread...Oh, well, it is what it is... Mad.

I admit I am not 100% certain how the lack of Bands 66 and 71 affects the daily use of this phone but I can confirm it works just fine on T-mobile with RSIM14+ 'soft' unlock.

I also purchased this phone with a primary intent to hopefully score a killer trade-in deal when upgrading to a new, current model (new Pixel, iPhone 12, etc).

Lastly, for those thinking about pulling the trigger, check your credit cards (Chase, Wells Fargo AMEX, maybe others?) as there is an offer to receive $25 credit for activating new service on Cricket. Also, $5 cash back from reputable website. If you're lucky enough, you could get this brand new phone for about $30.

For those who need a phone number, see current offers from Tracfone - they do sell some cheap Android phones for $0 (TCL A1 (A501DL) reconditioned) with a plan / new number (all for $15).
Best you look at T-Mo's coverage areas for bands 66/71. I you happen to travel or live in one of these areas, you will be sorry to get no signal. The footprint on these bands are huge across the US and what enabled T-Mo to continue to grab market share. .

Is that the specific tracfone deal (TCL phone) you bought and ported with? Do you think the TCL can be flipped for more than the cost of buying an ebay cheap porting number? I wonder if I can get those locally, wanted to try to get my Tracfone porting number quickly
