I'm planning on purchasing an iPhone12 Pro. I'm assuming that it will work on Cricket and all I have to do is to purchase an unlocked phone? The only concern I have is that the Pro series has a different sized SIM card so if Cricket doesn't have that available, I won't be able to use the new phone. Does anyone have any info on that? TIA!
Yeah, this is a bit of a crucial topic now. I (admittedly) just pre-ordered 2 phones for us and am fully hoping things are as simple as just swapping my sim cards in a couple of weeks.
The main issue i am worried about if you look at the fine print for the 5g it says that it has to be a Cricket phone
Compatible device required. At this time, 5G access will only be available on Cricket 5G devices. For 5G coverage
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...
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!
