I bought a Nokia offline, was told I can unlock it because they had bought the phone out right. I confirmed the phone is legit but Cricket refuses to unlock the phone until I activate it for 6 months! I don't have Cricket due to crappy service in my area. UNLOCK MY PHONE PLEASE!
If you have a Cricket phone, it may have been programmed with a lock that prevents it from operating with other compatible wireless networks. Cricket will provide the unlock code upon request, provided Cricket has the unlock code or can reasonably obtain it from the manufacturer, and you have met the following unlocking requirements:
The device you want to unlock has been active for at least six (6) months of paid service.*
The device is designed for use on and is locked to Cricket's network.
The device has not been reported lost or stolen.
The device is not associated with a fraudulent account.
If you're an active Cricket customer and believe you meet the eligibility requirements listed above, sign in toMy Accountto unlock your phone. Some Android phones must be unlocked using the myCricket app. Non-Cricket customers, please call Customer Support at 1-800-CRICKET (1-800-274-2538).
