I assume this is not a problem, as there is service here.However, I just tried to call Cricket customer service to inquire as to settingup account and the lady insisted since I'm in a pay-go market only a Cricketphone with "special technology" will work here. I assume this"special technology" is some combination of prl lists and so forththat are easily programmable using the tutorials posted here. Am I mistaken?Any help/advice would be appreciated.
