    Using a Cricket phone overseas

    Can I use a cricket BB 8530 overseas (England, France, South Africa) without unlocking it or cancelling my Cricket services?

    Well, I would pick up a prepaid phone, probably AT&T or T-Mobile because they are GSM and it's used most places around the world (plus they can be had for cheap at Wal-Mart). You could use their service but international rates are usually pretty spendy. I would get the phone unlocked (I use cellunlock.net, but am not affiliated) and then purchase a local prepaid sim card in the country you are visiting. That way you'll have local service, local number, local prices.

    I am sure there are other options. Happy travels.

    We flashed a Droid Incredible 2, which if unlocked, could have been used globally. HTC unlock codes are readily available.

    In the UK there was a provider which gave unlimited data, unlimited texts, and 300 mins for 15 GBP a month.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!
