    Thumbs up Cricket Updates iPhone Unlocking Policy

    Perhaps this was a result of the Whitehouse.gov petition about cell phone unlocking. The current administration basically asked carriers to define a way for their customer to unlock their devices.

    If you have an iPhone, you will be able to request it to be unlocked for international use. This request will be fulfilled by Cricket Customer Care.

    You must meet three requirements:


    • 6 months consecutive use
    • Same account
    • Same phone


    Once you unlock your device, it will remain unlocked for international use unless a software update re-locks it. This only becomes a major issue if you do not an active Cricket customer at that time.

    iPhones sold prior to 6/18/2013 SUPPORT Cricket and International GSM network SIMs including Canada. Other US and Mexico carrier SIMs are BLOCKED by default.

    iPhones sold after 6/18/2013 SUPPORT Cricket's network. Everything else is BLOCKED by default.

    Once you unlock your iPhone it will SUPPORT Cricket's network and all International GSM carriers including Canada and Mexico. It will still have other US Carrier networks BLOCKED.

    Don't bother asking Cricket to unlock it for AT&T, T-mobile, etc in the US. Not going to happen. Think of it from their perspective. You wouldn't do it either. Despite the higher prices, Cricket has paid a lot to get these devices.

    Active customers will not receive support while traveling abroad. Reps will not be able to troubleshoot other SIM cards.

    Supported phones:


    • iPhone 4S
    • iPhone 5
    • iPhone 5C
    • iPhone 5S

    Unhappy URGENT - Unlocking Cricket!!!!!!!

    Hello Admin!

    An Apple iPhone 5S (Locked to Cricket) has been gifted to me by my friend. I'm currently living in India. The phone is having Clean ESN!! It never barred/blocked. I've requested the unlock to Customer Service.

    They have replied this: "
    Hi Vivek,Devices sold by Cricket, including iPhones, are designed to operate on the Cricket network within the United States. Cricket cannot guarantee functionality on any other network, domestically or internationally, nor provide assistance to alter the phone manufacturer’s original design.
    Thanks,

    Jen"

    I'm really very upset. I'm feeling like why he gave this phone to me? Its a serous issue. I'm not asking for an irrelevant thing. I'm legit here. I haven't broken any of their policy. Then why they had been so rude to me?

    Please HELP!!!

    Hey Chris,
    Thanks for your post.
    I have the same problem, too bad I didn't know this before updating to IOS 7, anyway I'm now stuck with an unusable 4S (Israel). Can you advise me how to solve this issue in order to fulfill Cricket unlocking terms. I can have the phone sent to a friend in the US, what has to be done then?

    according to new policy which starts on Day Alpha with New Cricket phones must be active 4 consecutive months and then you can request to be unlocked.

    phone must be active on New Cricket's network for four consecutive months. It means Your friend needs to activate the phone and pay at least 4 bills before requesting unlock on New Cricket


    P.S. New Cricket is old cricket + AIO which will start operation mid May

    Go to
    this website


    and download the software for unlock of your iPhone 5 once you are sure of its match with the baseband of your iPhone 5
    Do not forget to make a back up copy of the content of your phone at iTunes
    Using USB cable and port, connect the phone with your desktop
    Unzip the files inside the software and place them in a folder by the same name on the desktop
    Click on Start inside the software to initiate the unlocking procedure
    Provide the IMEI number of the phone and other details as asked by the command prompts
    Once you get confirmation, disconnect the phone from computer and reboot
    Check for Cydia on the home screen after restart
    You should see signals of the carrier after inserting the SIM
    If you can make a call, your phone has been unlocked

    Update:
    My friend in Dallas checked conditions for unlocking, as was published earlier by Djisia, 4 months use at 25 $ per month. He also added the worker there suggested he should just unlock for 50 $ but didn't state who could unlock or where... I'll continue when I get more details
