Answer by Luvsdard
Here’s how it goes. Virgin Mobile and Cricket are cdma technology and so therefore cannot be “unlocked”. They can be “flashed” to another carrier but that doesn’t happen too often, especially with companies like Virgin and Cricket who are not primary cell providers. They are MVNO companies who buy bandwidth from the big carriers. In your case, both Cricket and Virgin are really on Sprint’s towers so it’s not going to change your service at all.
I don’t know why you want to go to Cricket, maybe for the shrinkage, but that’s the only viable reason. That being said, you may need to buy a new handset which will wipe out much, if not all, of your savings.
