So will the xiaomi mi a3 work for cricket wireless?
So did cricket wireless work for the xiaomi phone?
The phone will work but may only get 4g or HSPA +. It may get LTE on band 2 ,4,or 5 it really just depends on your area. AT&T/Cricket main LTE bands at the moment is 12/17 which most of these Chinese phones lack. That doesn't mean they won't work it just means you may only get LTE in limited areas. The phone will fall back on 4G where it can't find LTE signal. If you are on one of the capped at 3mbps data plans you won't notice a difference because 4g/HSPA+ speed pretty much matches the speed you are capped at weather you are on LTE or 4G anyway.. I hope this helps. I tried not to get to technical.
