    How might Cricket & AT&T signals work together?

    From my understanding, right now Cricket uses CDMA for voice and 3G data. Cricket also has roaming agreements with Sprint to use their CDMA towers.

    For 4G LTE coverage, from what I can figure out Crickets phones use Band 4 (except the Galaxy S 4 which also does Band 25). Sprint only does Band 25. So for most phones they won't be able to roam to Sprints towers, only Crickets?

    Once AT&T merges with Cricket, they have 4G LTE Band 4 towers. So does that mean that users could use CDMA on Sprint for voice and AT&T for 4G?

    Here in Milwaukee Cricket doesn't have 4G coverage yet, but I see that Sprint and AT&T both have it completely covered. So I'm trying to understand all of this tower configuration, why my speeds are so slow, and what my options are. Any help (or pointers) appreciated!

    When the merger is complete Cricket will no longer control or have any CDMA network/devices in use. In order to use AT&T's network once the transistion has started you will need a GSM (not CDMA) Phone which means you will not be able to use Sprint's network.
