It seems all the sellers of unlock codes for lumias on cricket on ebay are now saying 640 not supported.
Why is that and where can I get unlock codes for these 4 cricket lumia 640s I have?
thanks.

Have you tried just contacting any of the more reputable unlocking companies like:

https://www.unlockradar.com/
https://www.unlockunit.com/
https://www.doctorsim.com/us-en/
Unlock Phone | Unlock Codes | Cell Phone Unlocking Service Online - The Unlock Arena
Unlock Your Cell Phone Easily And Safely - Codes2unlock.com
https://www.unlocktechs.com/

In a quick look at most of these sites they actually list the Nokia Lumia 640 specifically. Granted I haven't tried to unlock one, I was able to get a couple AT&T models for $29.99 before they sold out and have been a customer of theirs for years so unlock codes for these devices isn't an issue for me, but in the past I have used Unlockunit.com a couple times and although it sometimes takes a couple days, they never failed me.

I've tried all of the providers listed above. Unfortunately, none of them we're able to provide me with a code. Has anybody had any luck in finding a provider to unlock their Lumia 640 from Cricket?

Cricket is probably the toughest nut to unlock in the US for GSM devices.

So far as I know those "Unlock Services" are just doing what consumers are too lazy to research themselves. They don't have a magic unlock code generator. If you can't get Cricket to unlock it, how could they?

No dice- doesn't look like there's any way to unlock this (short of paying for months of Cricket service).

I've heard mixed reports from users, but the Cricket Unlock Policy is quite clear. Put the phone on the $70 plan and it is instantly eligible for unlock. My local Cricket Store confirms this.

So $70 once vs $40 x 6 months = you do the math. I'd advise doing this through a store in conjunction with making them look up the Unlock Policy if they give you any guff.

My unlocking issue is solved for now. I got a broken at&t variant off ebay, unlocked it, and put it's mainboard into my cricket phone. Next I reflashed to t-mobile firmware and it's good to go. Easy peasy and MUCH cheaper than the $70.

You posted you unlocked on 9/20.. I ordered from attunlockcode.com - I believe, the same as the three links you provided, on 10/25. My credit card was refunded. I told them I had a Cricket Lumia 640 LTE. Is that what you told them?

After a couple months somehow it was successfully unlocked by an ebay code seller and I was told the databases the unlockers use get updated every month something like that so I think eventually it can happen. I think I was also told it increases the chances of your phone imei making the database by activating it on the cricket network at first, that is what I gathered by the broken english one code seller told me. But that was not applicable to me as I was incapable of doing so as I live outside of the USA.

@westnz thanks for the update. Ya I was given a similar update stating that may be in 3~6 months I could expect the code. I was also told that you need to activate and use it on Cricket for best chances and even post that there is no guarantee. So in no hurry so will wait! Till then will use it for other functions :)
