    Good to know about calling and getting roaming added. I noticed the opposite - when these plans migrated to the new billing system, any that were tied to an IMEI of a specific device started working...

    Yes, the SIM has a phone number associated with it - typically they're provisioned with most texts blocked (service texts can come through) and calling to anything other than 611 blocked. If you...

    I haven't gotten AT&T C-Band in my area yet, and it was just rolling out where I used to live before I moved in July, but that's an interesting move. I wonder if this continues with AT&T's reluctance...

    I think it's more the instance where you have LTE, 5G Nationwide, C-Band, and mmWave available and most people are crammed onto LTE or 5G Nationwide. In the suburaban and rural areas, I think that's...

    I completely agree - while I'm currently on a plan with some other family members, Verizon's LTE network is badly congested where they live and unless I'm going for a high-tier plan, I can't take...

    What kind of phone do you currently have? I saw a post on Reddit that if you're on iOS 16, apparently the "convert to eSIM" feature works with Cricket, which should make it a bit easier.

    While I think this may push eSIM adoption and carriers to have much better eSIM management systems (i.e. self-service controls for swapping or provisioning), this may be the beginning of the end of...

    Yep, some BYOD SIM kits don't get properly scanned at stores and can't be used (Best Buy seemed to be one the more egregious one for this), but a used phone (that is on the Cricket whitelist, of...

    You could always pick up a cheap phone-in-a-box kit from Walmart, Target, etc. for Cricket (phone, SIM, etc.) and set it up on a single line (the $30 plan would work for testing) and then if it...

    I think after keeping my extra prepaid SIM in an old AT&T Samsung Rugby, I could maybe get the "trade in your phone" text. Unfortunately, nothing has come through and the Rugby's battery died and...

    If all you got before was "4G", it was definitely the HSPA+ network that has been shut off.

    What iPad Air model is it? They should all have LTE, but the original one was lacking LTE Band 12 and...

    Satellite to phone - looks like SpaceX is running these at 200-300 miles in orbit. We typically think of a mid-band cell site only being able to broadcast a few miles, so the semi-retired (aka...

    I wonder if they'll run a separate network that your phone will fall back to as a last resort (kind of like the early days of T-Mobile roaming for Sprint folks) and much prefer the native T-Mobile...

    T-Mobile Prepaid is also monthly now (at least accounts on the current billing system aka Rebellion).

    They're requiring you to move to a new SIM on the new plans—it may still be a custom, Visible-specific configuration rather than a rebranded Verizon SIM.

    Yeah, T-Mobile leaned heavily on the "4G" marketing/branding for their HSPA+-capable devices (just like the myTouch 4G and some others). Unless it explicitly says "4G LTE" or LTE on any packaging, it...

    Unfortunately, it looks like your tablet doesn't support LTE, so the 4G it was marketed as is HSPA+, which is under the 3G umbrella (AT&T and T-Mobile both marketed their HSPA+ 3G service as "4G" on...

    It sounds like they're also doing away with their own core (requiring SIM changes for the new plans), which I'm hoping should help with latency. I'm almost wondering if this is their "Cricket green...

    In general, most providers are okay to downright terrible when it comes to customer service, just due to the nature of cost-cutting and the volume of customers. Cricket's call-in support (611) isn't...

    My experience matches the what hooked said. If you go single-line, the 5GB or 10GB plan may be a better deal if you don't need more data. The two flavors of unlimited only matter if you are in an...

    I was just up that way a few weeks ago (Petoskey and Alanson area) and when I got 5G, it was also 5MHz of n5 only. Seems they're upping it to 10MHz in phases?

    I was on that plan in 2017 and I think at that point it had gone to 3 or 4GB. Looks like 2015 was 2.5GB: https://web.archive.org/web/20150213204326/https://www.cricketwireless.com/cell-phone-plans
