    I did called them various times and told me to go to the cricket store and ask for one, i keep telling them that they told me they don't have any, i dont know what to do ;(


    well i talked to a representative and she told me that i could just go and buy a sim card from walmart and insert it into my phone, that it ddnt matter if it wasnt a cricket sim card aslong as it was a sim card. I inserted the sim card but the phone won't recognize the sim card ;(

    1. I don't think d2cri at this time will recognize any foreign SIM at all. I tried t-mo, verizon - it acts like they are not in

    2. When I first got the phone, it was on some old firmware version. It DID actually see t-mobile SIM card before i updated firmware, but couldn't connect to network. Now I cannot even find that ancient firmware which does it. So, it clearly CAN see the foreign SIM cards, but software blocks it now.

    3. There seems to be something going on with these cards. I do not see them on ebay at all, or anywhere else for that matter. It's almost like cricket takes some action to take them down. There was a guy here who was a dealer and sent them out, he no longer responds. Somethiung is happening very fishy with those SIMs.

    4. Even though it seems to be same hardware as verizon s3, which supports GSM no problem, I could not for the love of god figure out a way to make it accept GSM sim card. I was able to get into the radio programming and switch it to GSM mode, but without SIM card it's obviously no use, so we back to SIM cards

    5. Does anyone know if it's possible to force Verizon firmware into it? ODID seems to barf when I try to do it, but maybe there's some way to JTAG the radio into it? Really, this forum could use some hackers

    Inserting foreign carrier sim cards, turning on gsm and flashing foreign firmware on d2cri ....all of that wont work on crickets system and hackers know that.
