Will the new Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G (Factory Unlocked) be compatible for use on the Cricket Network?

I don't need to see the compatibility list.  This phone is a new release.  Cricket does sell the S21 FE 5G, but my fiancé ordered the 256gb unlocked version directly from Samsung.

So, I spoke to Samsung today and they assured me that my note 8 would be able to function on the network as long as it has the latest software upgrade.  This was also explained to me by a cricket employee at the local store.

Can someone from Cricket answer the question... why is this phone not listed as a compatible device?  It is perfectly capable of operating on the network as a 4g device.   Is there something that can be done to correct the oversight?
