I just switched to Cricket. Got a free Alcatel Verso.
I live where there is No Cell Service. I do have DSL and Wifi.
I need to be able to text via wifi. I used to be able to do it on my Droid mini, with verizon. That phone broke, and they dont make them anymore. (I really liked it too)
I dont want some "chat" "phone number".
Cricket Wireless is only offering Mobile WiFI to plans using certain Cricket phones.
If your phone is not a Cricket branded phone from this list then you will not be able to use WiFi calling or texting with your Cricket phone number.
