By the way, make sure your carrier supports 3G on the ZTE Open's bands (listed unofficially here as 850/900/1900/2100: http://www.gsmarena.com/zte_open-5320.php). On the old T-Mobile network (AWS/1700), you might only get EDGE speeds.

You will have to contact the carriers to see if they allow you to bring in an unlocked phone. You will also require a SIM card. Depending on your location, there may be multiple carriers aside from Sprint and T-Mobile.

The ZTE Open requires GSM or UTMS cellular network. Cricket is CDMA: http://www.mycricket.com/support/faq/do-cricket-phones-use-a-sim-card

For this reason, I do not think you will be able to use your Cricket number, but you should call their customer service to be certain.

You can ask a GSM vendor like AT&T / GoPhone, T-Mobile, Straight Talk / Net10, etc., whether your Cricket number is portable. I think most numbers should be portable now.
