My aunt, uncle and I all shared a phone plan. My uncle passed away about a year ago and i have his old phone. I took it to my local Cricket store to ask about having it unlocked or what we would have to do to meet the requirements to unlock the phone but for some reason i couldn't get a response? The man helping us just simply said they don't know why its locked or how to unlock it. We originally thought it was unlocked to begin with considering he had it for 2 years, but when we had put a different sim into it, it locked all of us on the phone plan out of our service and we had to go in to get it fixed. I just want to know why its locked and what needs to be done to unlock it even though its just going to be used on the same carrier?
