@Malik235 All carriers lock their phones to their service until certain requirements are met. Most no contract carriers require a certain number of months of usage since they don't have contracts or payment plans. If you want an unlocked phone you should go through Apple or somewhere like Best Buy.
@5678761166 It doesn't make sense to them to give deep discounts to existing customers. If they did that they would go out of business. I work in the wireless industry and companies pay pretty much full price to the manufacturers for the phones they sell so any discount is a loss. Its worth it to give to new customers because they're gaining business and monthly revenue. As a Cricket employee already pointed out in this thread everyone who joins Cricket has the option to get the new customer offers once. Some of the upgrade discounts they offer are actually pretty good too. Especially considering they are prepaid. Look at it this way, do you expect your cable provider to give you a free TV every 2 years or your internet company to give you a laptop? P.S. I wouldn't recommend using your phone number as a username. Easy bait for spammers.
@timleopard I have found that as long as you read the steps and follow the correct process refer-a-friend is really easy and reliable. I get the $250 max every year. Whoever you're referring has to get their code before they activate. Their code is different than the link you send them. They redeem the code after activation and then if they keep service for 60 days you both get the credit.
@5203049882 So they're a scam because there was a billing issue? There is more than likely a logical explanation for the issue. Their admins on here seem to be very helpful and usually direct people to their social media. On the other hand, what is more likely to get you scammed than having Cricket service is having your phone number as your username on a public forum.
