Word on the street, Cricket Wireless is dropping the Apple 5S (16gb) price to $149.99 starting Friday/May 6th. Great buy if you prefer the smaller form factor. While supplies last.

Several posters have tried to ask AT&T to unlock (as non-AT&T user) before powering the device on. The reply was

We're unable to approve your request because the IMEI number provided doesn't match a device that's currently on the AT&T network.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the usual unlock period is 6 months. But if you activate on the $70 unlimited plan, I believe immediate unlock is available.

Nope. Cricket locked phones will not work with AT&T.

Shattered my Nexus 4 few minutes ago. In for a small form factor. I'm on T-Mobile.

Where does it say iPhone is $149 ? and all the terms you posted. They are not on the link.

Interesting that you can buy unlock code for AT&T iPhones for rather cheap on eBay but nothing for Cricket's.

Starts Friday (tomorrow), they usually update the site just after Midnight (CT). We are not sure what the May Port-In/Sign-Up Bonus's will be, but those would be on top of the $149.99 price. Those also change over tomorrow. Keep in mind, Cricket likes to change things up last minute, so won't know for certain until deals are live on the site. I do know they ran out of stock of the 32GB Iphone 5S a few weeks ago, and no longer offered. I suspect they don't have a huge inventory of these 16gb's left, so they may sell out quick.

Other expected deals starting Friday-

LG Spree- .99 cents*
HTC 626s- $19.99*
ZTE Grand X3- $39.99
*(Port-In May Be Required)
