I absolutely need wifi calling, since cell phone reception is dreadful where I live (1 bar.) Lots of missed calls going straight to voice mail. Is there an Android phone (not iOS) that has reliable wifi calling on Cricket? I don't care about fancy features like camera, stylus etc. Just need reliable wifi calling.
P.S. I have seen the official list of Cricket phones that support wifi calling. I'm looking for feedback from customers who actually use wifi calling on their phone and are happy with it. TIA!

Canned response from customer service aside, are there any real users out there who can chime in? I was thinking of getting the Moto e5 Supra. Read the reviews, there's mixed reviews on wifi calling.
I have an LG X Charge and have no problems with the wi-fi calling working on my phone. I use it because I live in a rural area in south-central Pa that is very hilly - I get no bars for the cell network inside my house unless I'm near a window or door (and I mean right next to it) and when I do get reception, which is intermittent at best, there is no guarantee that the signal will last. Apparently, the terrain is the issue here because if I drive down the road my cell network signal blinks in and out until I am on the main local highway then I don't seem to have any issues. My only complaint is that the call quality via wi-fi calling, despite the internet access is not always stellar, it's serviceable but beyond that is no guarantee.
I hope this helps you a bit. Please don't hesitate to message me if you need any more clarification on my experience with this option.
Cell Phones, Plans and Service from Cricket
Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
Any surprise taxes or fees (which can really add up) - With Cricket, taxes are included in your bill, so you know exactly what to expect. For a list of our current fees, view our Charges & Fees page.
