Does Cricket put a carrier lock on phones when you BYOD? I want to bring an iPhone to cricket but worried that if I have to switch I won't be able to.

Cricket does not put a carrier lock on BYOD devices, however Apple is a special case. Some iPhones come to Cricket universally unlocked. They can be switched at anytime. Other iPhones come to us unlocked, but the software locks onto the first carrier that is activated on that network. In this case, we work with Apple to unlock the phone for a customer. Im not sure which iphone you have but either way we would love to have you as a new member of the Cricket Nation.
