What does carrier-lock mean?
When a device is carrier-locked it means they can only subscribe to data plans by one carrier. If you’re carrier-lock to Cricket Wireless, you can only choose subscriptions from within the carrier.
This American wireless service provider is owned by AT&T and it has a large number of subscribers, but a very specific coverage. This means if you move domestically to a place not covered by Cricket USA network you will either struggle with slow internet or no internet at all.
If you’re unlucky and your new place is not covered by this carrier, you will have a useless phone unless you unlock it. Carrier-locked phones cannot even use other wireless networks and must maintain the original subscription service.
