5G on Cricket Wireless

Cricket Wireless, the prepaid brand of AT&T, began rolling out 5G service in August 2020. 5G – the fifth generation in wireless technology – offers faster, more responsive, and more reliable Internet access for mobile devices.

Cricket Wireless 5G Coverage

Cricket 5G service rides on AT&T’s own 5G network and so should be available everywhere AT&T has coverage in the United States of America. However, we advice that you enquire specifically about Cricket’s 5G coverage before making your subscription. This is because there may be areas that have spotty AT&T 5G coverage, or no coverage at all.

Cricket Wireless 5G Compatible Phones

To be able to use 5G service, you require a 5G compatible phone, router, or modem. Cricket Wireless 5G initially launched with only one compatible smartphone available on the network. This has now been increased to two. They are:

Can You Bring Your Own Device (BOYD) On Cricket 5G?

Unfortunately, no. Cricket says that phones brought from other carriers won’t work on their 5G network. Even unlocked devices won’t too. You have to pick one of Cricket’s 5G compatible smartphones.
