    Dedra, just call Cricket and tell them that you want the unlock code for your phone. no "please", no being nice. And tell the rep that if you get anything from the him or her but a date by which you can expect the code, you'll immediately after getting off the phone file an FCC complaint. And if you don't have the code - or it doesn't work - by the end of that day, you'll be filing a complaint right after midnight on that day.

    Scroll up to post #24 for a link to the complaint form. Federal law requires that they get the code for you. "We can't" just isn't an option. "The amount of the fine is" is an option the FCC has. So is "and you have until xxx to pay it" is another one. And they use those options all the time. Once the FCC processes a complaint like this, the only way Cricket can get out of the fine is to provide the FCC with the date on which they provided you with the unlock code. (The FCC will verify that with you, if Cricket uses that defense - and their legal people know it. Cricket doesn't want to play "shoot it out" with the FCC. [Even AT&T backed down against them.])

    (Oh, there's another option Cricket has - that's to send you an unlocked phone. Compared to the fine for ONE DAY of violation, flying you one by personal courier would be cheap.)

    I guess all that has bought a Galaxy S4 from Cricket are having our consumer rights deeply violated. I spent $500 and they are offering me $128 to trade in for a phone of inferior quality. Plus the phone can not be operated in Gsm network bla bla...Does anyone know anyone know if there's grounds for a lawsuit based on antitrust'?

    What Cricket has done is ridiculous.

    To start a class action suit we all should call this number 1-866-981-4800. It is for a class action lawyer and the services are free. Everyone call and complain and lets make cricket pay. We can't let them get away with this behavior. If enough people complain they will have to listen and correct their course of action.

    All the major US carriers have a "No Class Action Suit" in their contracts now.... If you want to sue them, it has to be through small claims court....
