I bought this phone from marketplace from an individual that made me believe I can put my Sim chip in it and it work as should with my number. Problem is I can't unlock it because I don't have the phone number associated with the device. Is there any way around this?

Hello @Eggy88! Welcome to our Cricket Community Forum and thank you for your post. Unfortunately, without the Cricket phone number that was used on the device, we are unable to review the device tenure. Cricket requires that all devices purchased from us have at least 6 months of active service on the device before being eligible for unlocking. To get more information on our device unlock policy, be sure to click on the link below:


Open Source Working Framework is one of the greatest benefits of Android operating system. The source code is open for all, engineers and gadget producers. So they can get to the source code and make changes according to their equipment similarity. It makes the working framework adaptable and research-situated. Indeed, even Google can take ideas and android os for pc criticism from engineers, analyzers, and gadget makers. Likewise, Google can involve these contributions to improve the Android working framework. This makes it one of the most mind-blowing benefits of Android operating system for engineers.


I'll just patiently wait. Yes.. I'll admit it. Their aren't any unlock services online, and verified the bootloader needs oem unlock in developer options to be rooted. I like you can buy "Unlocked Retail."


How can you check how long you have had a device under contract digitally?

Please update the following btw. I had to skip the new update in Google Play Store since the new MyCricket app crashes/won't work.

MyCricket .apk that still works. Can't update to new. (V. 2.9.9)

I'll wait the time till device unlock works for the SM-A135U.

If you see this model, avoid this device they upgraded this model to A13 5G 🤬  . This is the 4G which nobody supports. 

Don't buy the A13 5G products, and think the phone dimensions are the same/works for the A13 4G.

They are both different sizes which is why they sell currently only the 5G model now in commercial retail 2022.
