    Where do i get a good phone that will work with new cricket?

    ive been looking on craigslist, also ebay has some good deals. id like the lg flex, or lg g2.

    would it be best to buy an unlocked ATT GSM, or is an unlocked verizon the same? all i see is 'unlocked works on tmobile ATT' etc...

    what should i look for? i dont wanna drop 300-400$ an the phone not work. please any advice would help.

    my master dealer told me that just cuz Cricket is AT&T, DOES NOT MEAN that 10% of AT&T phones will work on Cricket GSM!

    they said that about 10% of AT&T phones are sim locked to most sim cards to prevent them from buying phone super cheap and leave.

    its mostly on GoPhones he said..... so it does kinda matter but thats like 10%......

    You lost me at GoPhone :-). Just kidding..

    If your goal is to get something that is LTE compatible on Cricket then just look for locked OR unlocked AT&T LTE phones.

    When buying online, be sure to pay via Paypal and DO NOT send it as a gift unless you really trust the person. I purchased a Note 2 from someone on Craigslist, and 2 MONTHS later, it was reported as stolen. I think they committed insurance fraud. At least with eBay you can see their historical feedback and base your judgement off of that.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!

    i JUST bought an iphone 5s a few days before the merger, are you saying there is a possibility that if i switch to NCricket, that wont work? they said 100% thats not even a question when i got it. they said basically thats the only one guaranteed to work...

    cricket iphone 4s, 5c, 5s will work with new cricket. it is guranteed! LTE speeds maybe not. not all areas are covered with lte even, but you will get HSPA+ "4g" in almost all areas. new cricket speeds are LTE= 8mbps and HSPA+ = 4mbps

    something must be wrong. those devices are capable of LTE on att network. did you update iOS? that's the most frequent issue i found when i googled the problem
