CRICKET WILL NOT ALLOW MMS MESSAGES THROUGH WIFI WHICH IS RIDICULOUS ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE IN  A RURAL AREA WHERE THEY REFUSE TO BUILD TOWERS AND EVERYTHING HAS TO WORK THROUGH YOUR WIFI WE ALSO SHOULDNT HAVE TO PAY THE CARRIER FOR A RATE PLAN IF ALL WE CAN USE IS WIFI CALLING AS THAT ACCOUNTS FOR 2 BILLS THAT IS UNNECESSARY ESPECIALLY IF THEY LIMIT CERTAIN FEATURES CRICKET IS ONLY LOW COST BECAUSE OF LIMITS CARRIERS WANT TO KNOW WHY PEOPLE ARE JAILBREAKING OR ROOTING THERE PHONES ITS REASONS LIKE THIS IN THE MEAN TIME ILL CHANGE MY APN SETTINGS TO BYPASS THE RESTRICTIONS THIS CARRIER FORCES

I only purchased Cricket’s plan because this comment stated that people like the original poster were incorrect, and that people in rural areas without data coverage could receive MMS over wifi. After 5 days of dealing with Cricket support via phone and chat they confirmed that MMS cannot be downloaded over wifi.  I have a Pixel 4 if that matters, which is capable of MMS over wifi as long as the carrier can do it.
