unlocking my phone

My son and I have been with Cricket for years. He recently moved and couldn’t get a signal with Cricket so he switched to another company. I had to get a new phone because they said mine wouldn’t work when they went to 4G. I recently became eligible for free phone service as I lost hours at my job. I can’t afford another new phone and Cricket won’t unlock mine so my brand new phone is useless. I am totally disgusted with this company. The person I spoke with was extremely rude and non-caring.

How do I unlock my mobile phone? You can make sure your phone actually needs unlocking by inserting a SIM card from another network into your mobile phone. If it's locked, a message will appear on your home screen. The simplest way to unlock your device is to ring your provider and ask for a Network Unlock Code (NUC).
