Open new account.

I have tried calling cricket and have not been able to talk to a rep, so I was hoping I could get some help on here!

I want to open a new account and I have an old cricket phone. I want to know how much it would cost to open an account with the old phone. What would I have to pay for up front?

CricKet doesn't do credit checks, or have deposits. Their 1st month of new service is free, with no activation fees. No contracts as well. To answer your question, no, you shouldn't pay anything up front if you're using a CricKet phone.

wrong...if you already have a cricket phone, you need to pay your month of service to get the phone activated. first month of service is only free when you purchase a new phone.

Thank you for the correction. I always see CricKet's advertising free activation fee and 1st month free. Didn't bother with the fine print. Lol.
