Downloaded the free app to try for free. Everything was very easy to do. Just simply fill out the information they need and place the order. Just waiting on the sim card to add (wish they offered E-Sim during setup). But will write another review after I get the sim card and see how hard or easy it is. I see a lot of negative reviews and it did deter me at first. But I think it was human error on setting their phones up. But we'll see.

Entered my info to receive a free SIM card, the app claimed it sent a confirmation email for "next steps". Never received the email. No idea if the card will show up. Also extremely frustrated that cricket phones have their network locked by default, preventing the usage of other SIM cards unless you tolerate their service for 6 months. Needlessly obtuse and flat-out non-functional at best. Avoid at all costs!
