I am currently using a 4G LTE modem (Netgear LB1120) with a Cricket Wireless data only plan.The cricket app is telling me my account will be suspended if I don't purchase a VoLTE phone.My account has been suspended 3 times, prior to the shutdown, to “warn” me.Why do I need an HD Voice (VoLTE) phone for a DATA ONLY PLAN?My device is a 4G LTE compatible device.
You have to enter your IMEI into their device compatibility checker, in the Bring Your Own Phone section of the website. If it says the IMEI is ok, and you get a Data Only Universal Sim Card Kit, you should be fine. I’ve been using a Netgear LB1120 4G LTE modem and a separate Netgear wifi router for about 2 years with no problems. It’s been working really well - until the last week or so. Cricket is now telling me they are going to suspend my service on February 22 because I don’t have a VoLTE device. The LB1120 is a 4G LTE device! They already suspended my service twice - I had to call customer service to get it reactivated. I am now looking for a new data only device that will pass the IMEI check or will be switching carriers. The only data device, the Turbo Hotspot 2, doesn’t seem to work nearly as well as a 4G LTE modem. Good Luck!!!
