Supported Phones And Devices
Credo Mobile provides service like a traditional cell carrier does. High end cell phones such as Apple iPhones are often given away for free or at a deep discount to customers in exchange for signing a two year service contract. The Samsung Galaxy S9 has even been seen selling for $249 shortly after its launch, whereas it retailed elsewhere for $720+. Credo Mobile does not support BYOD at this time, so new customers will have to purchase a device from the company. They do offer a trade in program so you can sell your old devices back to them in exchange for a discount on a new one.
Credo Mobile offers customer support 7 days a week with the following hours:
Mon – Fri, 5:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. PT
Sat – Sun, 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. PT
