    Flashed Nexus S 4G



    New Service - activation only...

    Is there an online retailer that I could sign up for new service? I have a phone that I can flash to cricket that has a clean esn. Just wondering if I could avoid a trip to a local cricket.. know flashed phones work in my area.

    the only way to activate an account is to pay the first month up front. cricket frowns on anyone selling on the web outside of their website

    so you won't be able to find any other way to get it going online. i suggest your local dealer. in my market it's possible to walk out with a free zte score with your first month payment (trade-in port-in sale)
    you're looking for a cricket retail store. not corporate owned, also not a mass market store like bestbuy, target, or dollar general

    los siento amigo, you can expect to pay first month and $15 activation, not everyone charges activation but the dealer can if they want. You could go to a corporate owned store and if they give you a hard time just bust the managers balls hard enough and they will activate. Keep in mind that these stores are in business to sell phones so thats what they want to do, being someone who has some know how doesnt help them at all so they will possibly make it difficult for you. Be strong brother!

    Next time, say you dont have the phone with you and that you have the MEID/ESN and you just want to activate and get your MIN and MDN also make sure you setup your AID correctly and remember it, once you have made it that far PM me and Ill be more than happy to help you verify MIN and MDN if you have any issue

    I tried to lie to the them and say that the phone was on its way and that I didnt need it but the guy there said that no go that store owner wouldnt allow it because of charge backs... Good thing for me is that in my area there are multiple cricket stores...
