SEE WIKI FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

This is likely for those of you who wanted a new iPhone SE on a cheap plan or as a WiFi device and missed the online Cricket deal for $50. I was kicking myself for missing it so I went on a hunt to find a similar deal.

Before I go into the details of this deal, the Cricket deal had the SE at $50 plus a required $60 plan purchase so $110 plus taxes and a required port-in of a new number. This deal is slightly more expensive after codes but only requires a $25 plan and no port-in so it balances out a bit.

At the moment, this is the best I could find for someone who wants/needs the phone now and can't do the current in-store Cricket deal, which is the same as the online deal.

Please note this phone is locked to Simple Mobile for 12 months but should be usable on other Tracfone family brands. If this is incorrect please let me know and I will edit this information.

The deal:

Go to shop.simplemobile.com and enter an email address for a 25% code when you see the pop up. It doesn't have to be the email you end up checking out with. If you don't get a pop up, open the site in a private/incognito window and that should work.

Wait a minute or two and you should get one (they're one time use).

Select the iPhone SE 64gb and the $25 plan. Make sure you choose the one time payment option for $199.

Enter your code and also enter code SM10OFF.

The price will now be $157.49 pre-tax for the phone and the plan.

ADDITIONAL INFO MOVED TO WIKI TO COMPLY WITH SD RULES

Update: as of 1/8/20, the red version is out of stock, black and white still available.

Edit: for anyone interested in the actual phone service as well, here are the details of the $25 plan:

Unlimited Nationwide Talk, Text, and Int'l Text
Unlimited Data: First 3GB at High Speed, then 2G*
Unlimited International Calling** to 69 Destinations (up to 20 unique numbers)
International Roaming†† available to 16 countries in Latin America
$10 International*** Calling Credit
Add a line with this plan for $20. You can add up to 4 additional lines.

Don't forget, you get a free year of Apple TV+. Some good shows on there. You have three months after first setting up your device to take advantage of your free year of Apple TV+. Apple TV+ is on Roku [roku.com], Fire TV, Xbox & PlayStation too.

ORIGINAL POST INFO:

Thank you to the mods for allowing me time to move this here instead of removing the post. If any further changes need to be made, please let me know so this post stays compliant.

Now, I know we can't specifically mention CB here on SD, so I will just say that I was able to get 18% (total of $35.20) back on this for signing up to a site, which you should be able to cash out very easily as soon as the 30 day return window ends. This includes a $10 bonus for new sign up so $25.20 on the purchase itself. To note, I also added code NYE21 to my simple mobile cart even though it didn't take off any additional money, just to have it on there since it was mentioned on the CB site.

This brings the net total down to $122.29 plus taxes, or $12.29 more than the cricket deal. I waited to post this until the CB was verified in my account, which only took a few hours from time of purchase.

There are a few steps involved to get the full discount, but I hope at least a few people get some use out of this. If mods want me to remove the end portion of this post, please let me know as I'm trying to not violate the rules here.

*If you have issues with getting the email pop-up to appear, it seems that it is at the bottom of the simplemobile.com website on any page but not the shop.simplemobile.com site, so you may want to try just simplemobile.com (and scroll down) if you're having issues even in a private/incognito window.

I went to finally grab one for may parents after finally talking them into the monthly fees. This looks like it's dead, all colors OOS.
There is still limited quantity available for the black one.

Should have grabbed one earlier for some reason the 25% off code isn't working for me now.

Yeah deal is dead now. I see they added it to the exclusion list at the bottom of an email from today.

The lowest I can get the phone + plan down to now is $194.99 so definitely dead compared to the previous price. SM did some tweaking with their codes as the ones that used to take $50 off now only show up as $30.

The email code still successfully applies to my cart with the iPhone SE but even with 4 different promo codes, the price won't go lower than $194.99.

That being said, the same CB site I used is still offering 18% on purchases up to $200 and $10 bonus for new sign up as of now.

That means you'd get $45.09 total back in 30 days to your Venmo/PayPal/bank once the return window ends so your net price would be ~$150 plus tax after cb and discount codes.

Not as good as the previous $122 obviously but still not terrible if you really need the phone and don't mind waiting 30 days for the cb.

Even though could use one I don't need it that's why I was hesitant but I should have bought it anyway then decided later. I doubt it will be that cheap again without a port in etc.

Someone posted a similar deal for total wireless, not sure if you've seen it already.

Though some people are reporting that they can't apply the email code to the iPhone while others are saying it worked so just a heads up before you go looking for it. I checked it out of curiosity but couldn't get it to work.

The OP there didn't mention any CB, but it should be either $30 or $21 TOtal dePending on which category applies (the phone price is straddling the line between $30 straight or 12%). Also, you can sell the total wireless airtime separately so if you have no intention of using it, you can get another ~$20 back on eBay.

Since you don't really need the phone it might not be worth the hassle but I figured I'd leave this info here in case anyone comes across the expired post and finds it useful.

Thanks to DanoshechkaB and Cozypanda007 for the inspiration. Please rep them if this helped you.

So IOS 14.3 and RSIM (12, 14, or 15) works really well together. So well that RSIM soft unlocks the iphone (verified through Settings --> General --> About --> Carrier Lock: No SIM restrictions). RSIM can be removed after the soft unlock and you can freely change the SIM / carrier as well.

Do not abuse this. This is not for you to make an easy buck selling a soft unlocked phone to an unsuspecting buyer. This is for personal use only.

What you need:
1) Update IOS to 14.3. I tested RSIM 12 and 14 in IOS 13.7 and 14.2, all failures. IOS 14.3 worked immediately.
2) RSIM 12, 14, or 15. I got it working with my old RSIM 12 and 14, others used RSIM 15. Buy whichever off of ebay.
3) Original carrier SIM to program the RSIM
4) New carrier SIM for your own use

Which iphones will it unlock
1) Tested on Iphone SE (2020), Iphone SE (original), Iphone 7
2) May work on other Iphone models that are on IOS 14.3 since this is a software glitch

Programming the RSIM 12, 14, or 15
1) As long as the ICCID is active, you only need to program the RSIM once. So for example, if you have 2 locked iphones, you can program the RSIM once and reuse it to unlock both iphones. Once the ICCID expires, you will have to repeat this step to program a new ICCID.
2) Get your active ICCID from https://beta.unlockcode.mobi/iccid/
3) Insert the RSIM with the original carrier SIM into an Iphone
4) Navigate to Settings --> Cellular --> SIM Applications --> Edit ICCID
5) Input the active ICCID, for example, 89014104279605338375
6) Save and ignore the success prompt, no need to reboot.
7) Your RSIM is now programmed with the active ICCID
8) Eject the RSIM and original carrier SIM

Soft Unlocking the Iphone
1) Make sure your Iphone is updated to IOS 14.3
2) Insert the RSIM with the new carrier's SIM into the locked Iphone
3) Iphone will immediately ask you to activate the phone. If it gives an error or nothing happens, you probably inserted the RSIM and SIM incorrectly.
4) Activate, wait a minute, and the phone will be soft unlocked.
5) You should have network service through your new carrier
6) Verify through Settings --> General --> About --> Carrier Lock
7) Optional: You can remove the RSIM now, it's no longer needed.
8) Optional: You can try other carriers SIM as well, they should all work, including the original carrier

Best Practices
1) Do not factory reset. Factory reset will lock the phone again.
2) Turn off Automatic Updates (Settings --> General --> Software Update --> Automatic Updates). Future updates may lock the phone. Best to wait until it's been tested by someone else before updating.

Do not abuse this. This is not for you to make an easy buck selling a soft unlocked phone to an unsuspecting buyer. This is for personal use only.
