    Hi, devs

    I'm new here so I wonder whether it is ok to post in this forum...but...

    My question is that whether I can change my carrier(?).
    My phone, which is 1320, was bought in USA and I got as a gift from my friend. (great!). So whenever I turn the phone on, it views cricket->nokia->windows logo.

    That was the intro and this is what I am facing.
    I'm currently living in south Korea and tried to put my new sim card bought through Korean carrier(LG u+).
    Then it says that i have to input a password to unlock it because it has been locked for specific carrier (guess it is cricket). And it says I have 10 times to try it.

    Unfortunately I don't know the code and currently unavailable to call international calls to cricket to know the code. Also, I couldn't find any FAQs or forum in cricket homepage. (www.cricketwireless.com)

    Is there any other ways to solve this problem?
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Sincerely,
    CozyPlanes

    Did your friend use the phone on Cricket? If so, you need to contact your friend and ask him to call Cricket and get the unlock code for you. If he/she didn't, then you're out of luck. Cricket will only unlock phones for a current account holder.

    He said he will try, cuz he is super busy... In the USA.

    Is there any ways through the internet, not intl calls to get an unlock code...

    Anyways thanks for the quick reply!

    Does ##7820# do something?
    And can I get unlock code from their homepage?

    Unfortunately, your friend is the only one who can do it for you, and the only way he can get it done is by calling them directly. They do not have an online unlocking service. Wish they did, because I also have a Cricket 1320 that I can't get unlocked. Ha ha
    Good luck.

    You're welcome. Hope it works out for you.

    No. I'm just another fan/user of Windows phones.
