Your chase card might offer you an "Earn $25 back when you spend $30 or more on your first month of service with Cricket Wireless." This only applies to new customers.
See Offer Details:
"Earn $25 back when you spend $30 or more on your first month of service with Cricket Wireless.
Offer expires 12/21/2020. Offer valid one time only on a new line of wireless service. Payment must be made directly with the merchant. Your $25 back will be processed within 30 days after making your payment."
If you placed an order than have multiple lines, you can use the following link to update your 2nd line: https://www.cricketwireless.com/portStatus.html. No need to wait for that email asking you to update info.
Be wary of ebay seller sdcomputers4less . Multiple people claiming bad port numbers & wont refund even if you have not even been given a number yet. You have been warned!! I bet you don't have the guts to tell people who you are. You just post misleading info here. I bought three numbers from them and all delivered in two hours without any issue to port in.
Multiple posters have not stated bad port numbers and his numbers worked fine for me.

There is NO ACTIVATION & PORT-IN BEFORE YOU GET YOUR PHONE. Think about it people, it is physically impossible. Your iPhone needs to be turned on for activation and port-in to work. Stop ASKING this question.


Above is NOT entirely true.

Email with subject of "Cricket Shipment Confirmation" will state: "Make sure you insert your new SIM card and power on your phone before you activate online" (with the words "active online" being a link).

If you choose NOT to follow those instructions and just click the link "activate online" (even prior to receiving your phone let alone power on etc)... that WILL indeed lead to disconnection of services on previous carrier and number being ported over to Cricket immediately. So be aware! Don't click on the link until you're all ready to switchover.


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. 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 canceled before the phone is shipped. .

Search eBay for "$25 cricket iphone referral code" - the FREE referral link is in the eBay item description here's no need to pay $0.99. Also available for free by searching reddit for cricket wireless referral. REMEMBER sharing, advertising, or PMing referrals is a VIOLATION of SD rules & can result in a BAN. You can also check Reddit.

Some users have reported a pop-up offering a "Because its 2020, Take $20 off coupon". The process for getting the pop-up is, you add the iphone to your cart, then go through the checkout process (even enter your porting number information) but at the end dont go through with it. It took about 40 minutes for it to show up the last time I did it today (12/1/2020). When you do get the pop-up, select Apply Coupon, and it will take an additional $20 off. It says there is a Coupon code but it doesn't specify what the actual code is to apply manually. This does combine with the $25 referral bonus.


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 this device with the new email address, generate the $25 referral coupon from your existing cricket amount. (If you've reached your referral limit, can also search eBay for "cricket $25 iphone referral code"- 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 someone holding you down and tickling your wittle piggies!

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. The $25 referral credit will apply on the 59th day and you will get a text notifying you of the credit. After the credit posts, 1 day 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
Before purchasing your free phone, secure a $25 referral coupon from the cricket referral program (Search eBay for "$25 cricket referral code"- 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 someone holding you down and tickling your wittle piggies!.

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

If you get the error "Well that didn't work as expected!" when trying to claim a code, you need to find a new link as this person has already reached their refer limit.

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. The $25 referral credit will apply on the 59th day and you will get a text notifying you of the credit. After 6 months on Cricket, you can request your free cricket phone to be unlocked


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]


Charges and Fees [cricketwireless.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/).

They Gevey Store ICCID is not always up to date. I found the latest ICCID numbers here https://beta.unlockcode.mobi/iccid/. Updated on November 29. The first one on the list ending in 9274 worked for me today (11/29).

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

For those of you looking to do more than one order: Cricket appears to be sticking to their guns on the one per household, so you will need to do the second order to another address (Note your CC must also have that billing address)

I did not have issues with social security # or zip code from a Boost number purchased on another site.
2020-11-20 12:00 PM
Got Boost number from eBay(link in the comments), SSN put 0000 and zip put current zip code. Phone shipped in an hour.
2020-11-20 20:21 PM
You can put random number for ssn and zip code during port in. Cricket does not care ssn and zip code. It works and I got shipping email already.

Same unlock policy, but Metro deal is in store only.
2020-11-20 22:48 PM
metropcs is not the same deal, it's after rebate.
2020-11-20 23:44 PM
Metro also requires in-store "ID Verification" for all good deals.

Cricket hotspot only on the $60 plan.

I don't see why not, Visible is using Verizon's network and anything that's not already AT&T is eligible.
2020-11-23 10:17 AM
I just ported out a Visible number and activated this morning. Just remember to port out and activate your Cricket service before your Visible payment due day

You can do live chat and their agent will let you know the port in status. I did it this morning and she told me porting is successful. I got shipping email 4 hours later.

Yes, any registration of the phone or SIM on their network apart will pause the unlock countdown. SIM in another phone or another SIM in this phone.
Unlock does not pause.

Any reason the boost mobile numbers won't work online? Some of the ebay sellers have this:

EVERYNUMBER IS GUARANTEED TO WORK


NOT RECOMMENDED FOR CRICKET ONLINE PROMOTIONS!!!! PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE FOR THIS!!

Please port these at store, online is not guaranteed to work or go through.
I purchased from one of the sellers with this line in the description. I actually read the line after purchasing it so had no choice to just go with it. Apparently, the port worked but I still have not received a shipment confirmation email.

Sprint SIM card and iPhone/Samsung phone IMEI sure comes in handy... Tello $5 new account and instant port out Wink

Not sure what I'm doing with so many iPhone SE purchases lately... But could probably trade it into Apple for $205 or sell it locally for around $250 I guess.
What information do I need to port out from tello? Do I need to call or chat with customer service to get the port out information?

It's available online - no need to call anybody or chat. They send you an account PIN when you sign up - you'll need that to show your porting information.

I ordered two phones within minutes of one another. I bought numbers on eBay. The first phone still says transfer pending. I have a shipping confirmation on the second phone. Should I cancel the first phone and reorder?
