Porting your number to Cricket Wireless is tricky -- but there's a way and we'll show you how. First, you'll need to acquire a wireless carrier SIM Card. The most cost-effective wireless carrier we found is Ting Mobile. Ting Mobile GSM SIMs are available locally (Best Buy, Target, Walmart, etc.) for approximately $5 to $10. Amazon has them as well. Direct purchase from Ting Mobile online is another option but may take 3-5 business days for shipping.
Check Ting Rates here. We recommend the single line at $6. Cricket will send a call and text for verification. This will count as 1 or 2 minutes falling into Ting’s 1-100 usage minutes for an additional charge of $3.
