    Question Open a cricket account without going into a store?

    So here's the deal.
    I've had cricket for 8+ years.
    I have an old flashed phone I want to give to my stepdad.
    He doesn't have an account.

    I called customer service and they told me I have to go into a store to open an account (due to the flashed phone).
    I don't want to go into a store. They're going to charge me to flash the phone, when I can do it myself, plus it's pre-flashed, I just need a number to tether to it.

    Is there anyway I can start an account or add a line to my account without having to deal with store monkeys?

    As long as its a flashed phone and not an actual cricket phone it can be done through our supporting dealers. You'll have to paypal $15 for the activation fee tho. The first month will be free.

    The CSR will assume you do not know how. You have to incist on the fact that you know how. They might try and talk you out of it. All you have to do is hold your ground. Tell them all you need is the MDN and MIN. Let them know you know what you're talking about. That's all it takes.

    THIS CAN HAPPEN. you need to try to dial #228 and it should fix this . If not call customer service and they will check from there end. often they gave you the wrong numbers or did not set your account up correctly.. Had this issue in the past on a second phone..

    if all of that fails try RE FLASHING The phone could be something curupt

    Good Luck. also have one of the guys from a dealer on here to check out your account for errors. could be best to try first..
