    Only bought with a SIM card for add'l discount on phone! SIM card wouldn't work! Had 2 replacements that would not work...& on going to Cricket, found it was the wrong type of SIM for my new phone!!! Ended up costing me more than I was supposed to save & found when it was too late to return this phone, it was not eligible for all Cricket services as I had not bought by it at Cricket!! I thought I had done all my homework & research & have been very inconvenienced & disappointed from this experience!!

    What they don't tell you

    Purchased this as a gift for my daughter. Before I gave it to her she switched phone carriers, so I tried to return it, unused, and the back still intact. Best Buy refused to take it back, said once it was sold it was out of their hands, couldn't be returned. That may be true, and I'm more than willing to accept my responsibility. However, I do feel there is also a duty of Best Buy to inform customers making an online purchase when that item is not returnable. I have been unable to find any such disclaimer anywhere related to this card.

    Card not registered as Sold by the retailer!

    Buy this card online at your own risk... The card was not registered as sold by the retailer and hence could not be redeemed at CricketWireless by any means and Cricket customer service could not help other than correctly diagnose the issue. Had to contact BestBuy customer service and got transferred to Mobile Department after explaining the issue. The person was very helpful, had to re-activate the card for it to work.

    Best Buy should not charge taxes and fees

    Cricket monthly rates include taxes and fees. So if you pay Cricket $70 directly you get $70 in credit which covers $70 in service. If you buy through Best Buy, they add taxes and fees to the $70. So you pay $75-76 to Best Buy (depending on taxes and fees where you live) and then still only get $70 in service. It's like paying taxes and fees twice. Only worth buying through Best Buy if there is a promotion or you have reward zone dollars to burn.

    this card never worked when I bought it because the authorising agents gave me wrong telephone number that did not work. i was left out on the street waiting for a lyft driver who tried to contact me on the non existent number. I will not recommend this product at all. I have asked for my money back.

    Simple Top Up but...

    The payment plan says you get 5G for $40. However, that's not the case. After you have top off with the $40 you receive an email which then indicates you have to direct deposit to them another $5 to make that happen. Otherwise, you will receive only 2G and have a $10 balance. Not good, Cricket. Revise your text accordingly.

    Sticker over activation code was so baked on that removing it removed some of the code so only part remained and could be read. Bought this online so I wouldn't have to brave holiday shopper filled stores and now I have to go in to exchange! I will have a salesperson remove the new one's sticker when I buy it.

    Sim cards are not working. I tried activating it through the process besy buy team suggested, I also visited the store to get the activation done, none of them know the process. I tried calling cricket customer care and they said these are not in their database. Worse part is they are not returnable. Waste of money

    I ordered a $40 Cricket refill card + sim kit in a bundle to save $50 off an unlock phone. According to Cricket Wireless online payment, the refill card I recieved from Bestbuy "has been deactivated"... No sure who to contact to get my money back.

    Cricket uses Sprint towers, which made us believe we would have coverage at our house, given the Sprint tower map. But they only lease SOME of the towers, and apparently we were not in range of one of those.

    Best buy should not charge sales tax for Cricket prepaid since no other companies charges anyway. It is easier with autopay. Also, it will be better with email delivery.

    I purchased this refill card in a combo with a phone. Found out that this card wasn't activated before being shipped out to me, therefore it was useless.

    Cricket customer service was absolutely horrible, I was not able to get the minutes added to phone. Don't waste your time or money.
