    Question Can't use my 5C outside of the US; options?

    I'm a 6 year cricket customer and brand new to this forum.

    I Bought a Cricket Iphone 5C - November 2013 and could at least text when returning to Canada.
    I went to a cricket store in Nov. 2014 and paid $41 to convert to new Cricket GSM and was told the plan would remain the same. But... no longer can I call to Canada from the US (without paying a premium) and even worse, now that I moved back to Canada, I can't call or text anywhere. It's now equivalent to an expensive Ipod Touch.

    I have not found any Canadian shops that can unlock Cricket.
    I don't trust the online services. They say they can unlock (even when I enter a dummy IMEI#)
    Paying cricket for 6 months when no longer living in the US is ridiculously expensive.

    What are my options to use this phone outside of the US?
    I've landed a job on a cruise line where I will be seeing the world but would like to use my Iphone.
    I'm hoping this forum can help me.

    Happy New Year

    sell it bro sorry to hear about your loss of service. i see that as the only good option. because they just changed the unlocking policy again. only iphones active and paid for on cricket for 6 months will be unlocked. remember to get your account number and your line must to be active to port your number out. i don't trust the online unlockers so far, so if anyone else knows drop some info here
