Re: Cricket Locked MY phone.

I have bought several unlocked phones over the years that did not come from cricket. I have NEVER HAD AN ISSUE. My grandson has an iPhone bought from Best Buy, I have bought two phones that were AT&T compatible online and have never had this issue. Just because a phone is unlocked, does not mean it is automatically compatible with Cricket. Do your research.

Follow your own advice, " Do your research".  Just because it didn't happen to you doesn't mean it doesn't happen.  I found out it does happen and it is normal.  If you read all of this thread you would know that.  I didn't like that Cricket knows this happens and then drags their feet correcting the situation thereby getting another months payment out of me.

Next time you decide to weigh in on a subject you know nothing about, you may want to rethink your plan and just keep quiet.

"SIM Free phones are activated using the "Reseller Flex Policy", so it will lock to the first carrier activated."

No one will tell you this when you buy your phone, you only find out if you try to change providers.  A very sneaky, underhanded policy that should not be legal but it continues to happen.

Re: Cricket Locked MY phone.

Hi, i recently bought an LG stylo 5 off of eBay. It turns out the phone is a cricket phone and it is locked. I cannot reach the seller, and therefore lack the required information to go about getting my phone unlocked. I have no idea how long it has been active with cricket, if it was a fraudulent account associated with the phone or if it was stolen. What available option is there for me to fix this problem? It is extremely inconvenient that i purchased a phone and it is impossible to use or unlock simply because it is a cricket phone and cricket is extra strict about their unlock policies.

I ordered a brand new Samsung Galaxy S10+ 128gb factory unlocked phone directly from Samsung. Waited a few days before I put my old SIM card into the S10+ phone. Cricket has locked it.

This is one of the most common problem user faces. I was having the same issue, so in order to resolve it, just follow the mentioned steps (it worked for me) 1. Un-install the app 2. Delete the cache and other files of the apps (do it via file manager) 3. Restart your phone 4. Re install the app and the issue will be fixed. Do let me know if you are having problem performing get-tubemate.in the steps which I have mentioned above or if the problem is still there. Would love to help! Smiley Happy Regards, get-mobdro.com
