This can be combined with free phone when switching to cricket offers or there is an attractive offer to combine

Buy an iPhone 8(64/128 GB) for $49 when you switch to cricket with $60 or above unlimited plan.

Sample Deal:
iPhone 8 128 GB - $49
Unlimited plan - $60
Total - 109

Once you receive the phone create an online account and convert the plan to $30 min plan, so the intial payment of $60 will cover 2 months. Add a referral (detailed steps available in prior cricket threads) will get you additional #25 for third month and in additional you will also get $50 account credit from Cricket. So you can stay with cricket for 4-5 months with no additional cost, if you could refer someone else to join cricket then you will have additional credit to cover your 6th month and can get phone unlocked as well.

Devices are 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. If porting in a number - Do NOT "copy and paste" your ported out account number and PIN. You need to enter it manually. Note that even if the "copy and paste is correctly depicted on the ordering screen, and the order initially goes through, the port out verification will subsequently fail and the order will be cancelled before the phone is shipped. .

Visual guide for the process to activate new Cricket phone accounts for anyone who is confused about the process:

New Cricket Phone Activation Walkthrough [wixsite.com]


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

So for the referral can you do it after you pay for everything or does it have to be through checkout?

Well, the question is: Do you need to maintain 2 months of unlimited services to get the $50 credits or you can switch to $30 plan right away?

I believe it can be done right after you activate the line and create a new online account

If you just want the phone and not use the actual service, the price is still the same since they aren't refunding you , basically the way thats the cheapest is pay the phone and the 60 dollar plan?

One of the condition to get the credit is "Activate and remain on an unlimited plan (minimum $55mo. before discount) for 3 bill cycles." so if you switch to $30 plan, you will loose the $50 credit...... Only one I guess

On their website, it says "Activate and remain on an unlimited plan (minimum $55mo. before discount) for 3 bill cycles". So I guess it will not be eligible if you degrade to the $30 plan. Is this right?

How it works:
Open a new line of service (includes porting a number from another carrier (other than AT&T)).
Activate and remain on an unlimited plan (minimum $55mo. before discount) for 3 bill cycles.
Remain active and in good standing for 55 days.
Your $50 credit will be applied to your bill for your third month of service.

Above is terms snippet from cricket website

Point 2 and 3 are contradicting. Point 2 says remain on same plan for 3 billing cycles and point 3 says credit will come after 55 date of good standing and credit can be used for 3rd mont bill

Am I misreading this?

Yeah that is what cricket says, but it would be really nice what op says is true but i doubt it will work. But there is no lost in trying thou. I just ordered iphone 8 and will try this hoping i get the $50 bonus.
