Even with a legacy plan the 1 year and $100 in refills still applies as a requirement.
Thanks. But what I was thinking when I posted that I have the PAYG - Legacy plan was that maybe it does not qualify for getting a phone unlocked after a year of service, since T-Mobile gets so little money from it.
On the other hand, I'm surprised there's a requirement to be met to unlock a phone ordered from prepaid.t-mobile.com, given their prices. For example, the Google Pixel 3A 64GB lists for $399. On prepaid.t-mobile.com, it's priced $400 with a qualifying plan of at least $40 (per month, I assume), $430 otherwise.
You can try contacting Tmobile support with messenger through Facebook or Twitter and ask them
if they can unlock it for you. I know some carriers at one time had different unlocking policies for "non feature"
phone like the Coolpad Snap but since carriers mainly sell smartphones it seems like they dropped it.
Out of curiosity does the Snap have the unlock app, because you do get 5 temporary unlocks a year but
I don't know if that's included with prepay plans. That's a question you can ask support.
This is mainly a user to user forum with some Tmobile moderation but it seems like on the weekends it's a little hit or
It would still be standard unlock requirements, even if purchased without subsidy! Most of our devices are sold without subsidy these days, and the standard is modeled with that in mind. Your legacy status wouldn't impact the requirements either!

If it does, I haven't come across it.
