Why should I SIM unlock a Cricket cell phone?
The mobile phone market’s vast and packed with choice. But if your phone’s tied to a specific network, your options are limited. Unlocking your Cricket device means you can choose a different carrier as and when you want to (Verizon, AT&T, MetroPCS, or T-Mobile, for example). And benefit from the wide range of offers out there. Whether it’s a cheaper deal, a more customized package or better coverage, you’re in control. You can even insert a different SIM if you plan on traveling internationally and want to access the best coverage as you move from country to country.
By unlocking your Cricket wireless device with Mobile Unlock you get flexibility, freedom and choice. The process is quick, secure, straightforward and 100% legal.
Stay in control of your phone’s network, not the other way around.
Source a package that’s right for you, not a generic deal you’re tied into.
Save as you Travel
Switch to local networks when going abroad and avoid costly roaming charges.
Choose a carrier with the strongest signal where you are located.
Make more money if you choose to sell your cell phone on.

How to unlock Cricket phone
As long as you’re connected to the internet or wifi, and you’ve got your device with you, you’ve got all you need to unlock your Cricket wireless phone.
You just need to find your phone's IMEI number by going to ‘Settings > About screen’ on your device. Or by typing ‘*#06#’ into your phone.
Enter these on the page, along with the model of your device (for example, Sony) and network (Cricket). And click ‘Checkout’.
Our tech will start working immediately, scanning over 200 phone manufacturing databases globally to access the data needed to unlock your Cricket phone.
The length of the process varies. Almost all Android phones take between 1 and 6 hours to unlock. Apple devices may take a little longer.
The unlocking process also differs according to the make of the phone.
An automatic (or “over-the-air”) unlock, using WIFI/3G/4G, is typical for all Apple devices. This means you won’t be sent an unlock code to type in. As soon as we let you know that the behind-the-scenes process is complete, just insert your new SIM and switch your cell phone back on. Your device will automatically update and unlock ready for you to use. With Android devices, you’ll receive an unlock code by email. Just key this into your cell phone, put your new SIM card in and you’re good to go.
