We have two iPhone XR phones on our account and we are getting messages that they need to be upgraded for the 5G switch.  We do not wish to upgrade these phones at this time, plus they are still for sale on the Cricket Wireless website.  Are they still going to be functional after February?

5G service requires a compatible 5G phone and plan. See this link to view our 5G Compatible Phones:

Thank you for the reply, but my question was not fully answered.  Can we still use the iPhone XR on the Cricket Wireless service even though they are not 5G phones.
