I would like to switch to Cricket for their 100GB data plan but I am not able to find any hot spot with an IMEI that is compatible.  All they seem to sell is an extremely low end 4g hotspot. 

 

I have asked for a list of compatible hot spots but no available at cricket (voice or chat) appears to even know what that means.

🤔Not sure if this would help, but I know Cricket sells devices through Best Buy, Amazon, Target, Walmart… they have to have more 5G hotspot options there. I only see one on crickets website. It has good reviews 🙂

Early this morning I was able to get to someone that told me there are three 5G hot spots that they will activate.

Inseego MiFi M1000

HTC Hub

I just picked up an HTC hub,  the IMEI checker says its compatible.  It says its 5G, but it only appears to support 1 5g band.  Probably going to send it back.

They have nothing except that single “ancient” hotspot 2 device.
