A Space Gray unlocked SIM-free iPhone SE for me, ditto, Rose Gold for Cathy.  Barely chewing through our Rollover Data allotment and now able to use WiFi Calling, we dumped AT&T for Cricket Wireless, which means we're back on the AT&T network.  Plentiful coverage where we live and travel regularly.


Saving at least 20 bucks a month on the $30.00 2GB each plan versus a measly single Rollover GB  ($60.00 vs $82.00).  Only thing we gave up: Mobile Hotspot.  We can read emails on the phone and send a more detailed reply later from our computers.


A couple notes for those contemplating the switch: DO NOT click the "Activate online" link in the email you receive until you've installed the SIM from Cricket, especially if you're porting your phone number.  Instead of taking you to a webpage where you verify your identity before making such a drastic change, the link sends you to a page that starts the irreversible process.  Thus we lost a day and a half of cell phone use.  Turns out it happens quite a lot and Cricket has yet to reword the email.


Either because we were grandfathered in as previous AT&T (and Cingular and SBC Wireless)  customers or because they haven't updated the information page, Wi-Fi Calling is working on both of our BYOP iPhones, contrary to the info that you must buy the phone from Cricket.  My workplace is in a known cellular "armpit" for multiple carriers, so Wi-Fi Calling is definitely a plus.  If it works for you, best not to call Customer Support and ask about it.  ;)

I've had Cricket for a couple years now and no issues or complaints. Have done BYOP with a Motorola and now a Sony. Will never go back to a contract again.
