Thanks for the info, This is too bad. I contacted 2 different Cricket Wireless stores and talked to their staff about whether or not an iPhone 12 Pro purchased from Apple would work on the Cricket network by simply transferring the SIM Card. Both said yes. As far as the 5G network question goes, I was told that as long as I am on the unlimited plan (we have 3 lines for $110), it would pick it up wherever it's available. I tried to chat with Cricket personnel online, but there was no live person (just got automated responses). My iPhone 12 Pro will be arriving in a few days. I won't be upset if it doesn't pick up the 5G network, but if it doesn't work with the Cricket network at all, I guess I'd have to switch providers, That would be a shame.... I wish Cricket was more forthcoming with all this info when I know many people must have contacted them about the new iPhone.
I called a second Cricket store just to confirm what I was told. He also said as long as the phone is unlocked, all I'll have to do is to move the SIM card from the old phone to the new phone. Now, this person says if your phone has 5G capability, it should automatically connect to the 5G network whenever it's available and I won't have to do anything. I guess I'll find out when my new pone gets here in a couple of weeks!
So I just talked to the Cricket store person. She said if want to take advantage of the benefit of 5G, then I'll have to change my plan. I'm not doing that because we have a pretty inexpensive family plan with 4G network and I'm not looking for the 5G benefit until everyone else gets a 5G phone (not for a while). Otherwise, all I'll have to do is take the SIM card form my 8Plus and stick it in the new 12Pro and it should work. Is what she told me. We will see...
