Hi @sipi41 Thank you for your post. Devices from other wireless providers will not have access to Cricket’s 5G service at this time. For compatible devices updates you can check the link below:

What other providers?? My phone is unlocked from the factory, not from other provider or carrier... and the question was not for a list of compatible phones, I know my phone is fully compatible but what's the APN... 

At this time factory devices aren't fully supported with 5G. However, some users with factory unlocked s20s (any model) and Note 20 Ultra have seen 5G popped up on their phone, but service has been not so great. I myself is trying to find out the apn as well. I have an s20 Ultra.
Check PM, I sent you a chat.

I'm curious about this as well! If you have them I'd love them!

Same here. I bought an unlocked moto edge 5g to use on crickets 5g network. How can I get the 5g speeds.

Looking for the same! tag me whenever you’ll get the solutions.

I purchased an unlocked Google Pixel 4a5g for the purpose of using on the Cricket 5G network. Google’s own compatibility chart for their phones lists Cricket as compatible with my device. https://support.google.com/pixelphone/answer/10082009?hl=en
i understand this is not Crickets own website, but I thought you would like to know that huge sellers of 5G devices are advertising compatibility with your network. 
 

I did check the “compatible device” link you had provided above before I purchased my phone, but it doesn’t specifically say the Pixel 4a 5g  WILL NOT work, it just says devices not on that list MAY not work. So I went ahead and trusted Googles official compatibility chart which states it Is compatible. 
 

Is there any word on when Cricket plans on expanding its 5g compatibility to more devices?
