    Cricket official announces upcoming ban on non-VoLTE phones

    Though this makes since they are planning to shut down their 3G network, I'm afraid the tact that they will take is that only Cricket branded phones, and maybe iPhones will be allowed on their network. If you want a non-Cricket Android phone Cricket will tell you buy one of our crapware infested phones or forget about it. For instance I have a OnePlus6 that technically supports VoLTE, but Cricket refuses to allow it to use it. https://www.lightreading.com/mobile/.../d/d-id/754376

    I think it means they will allow wifi calling/volte on all phones .

    Hopefully they will change their tune on supporting BOYD devices on VoLTE by then. We will see after they start enforcing this for new customers in 2020.

    Well AT&t better get their butts in gear. Because there's lots of unlocked phones out there and I mean lots that support all of AT&t's critical frequencies for LTE. The fact that AT&t blocks Wi-Fi calling for unlocked phones and in some cases v o l t e support is absolutely absurd.

    I also think this just means that they will support BYOD VOLTE phones as they phase out older phones.

    I can take any of my unlocked international phones over to T-Mobile and VOLTE will work right out of the box. Only reason they don't on Cricket is because ATT blocks them.

    If they try to continue this practice I'm pretty sure it will violate some laws.

    There is 0 chance of that. That would be suicide.

    Common sense says you're right. Metro and now cricket have numerous chips handsets. Carriers have always made tiger income from selling service,not by giving away handsets.
