    Question Port-In , New Phone , Check Logic/Math/Legal

    Hello. Can someone check the following: My wife needs a new phone. We would like to get the Moto E5 for "free" from Cricket.

    *Note: I am currently on Cricket's grandfathered 5/$100 (so, no changes allowed to account).

    1) Buy Port-In number from Ebay (US$5)
    2) Port in to Cricket (under a new account) buying the Moto E5
    3) Select the Text/Talk plan for (US$25/month).
    4) Cancel the next day.

    Any issues with the above? Any other method(s)? Thanks in advance!


    Sincerely,

    -d

    But everything else is good? Are there any other 'fees', 'taxes', etc... with the process?

    Thanks,

    Why cancel the next day? You're paying for a month of service why not just keep it until it cancels itself out at the end of the month. You could use it as a "play" line.
