    Compatible GSM phones with Cricket

    Cricket will tell you if your current GSM phone is compatible with its prepaid network, and it will offer a very limited list of new (and expensive) phones that are guaranteed to be compatible, but it won't provide a list of other phones that you can buy elsewhere and be sure they will be compatible. I'm not about to buy a phone and hope that it is compatible. I need assurance before I purchase. Is there a way to know what's compatible without having to buy it first?

    I think the cricket website has a page where you enter the imei to see if its comparable.

    But that's the problem. For every phone I find at a store, I would have to check the IMEI number and then ask Cricket if it is compatible. Why can't Cricket just provide a list of compatible models? Furthermore, the IMEI number is more for flagging stolen phones, even if the phone is compatible. So again I ask, why not give us a list that I can use to go shopping?

    Because its easier for them to have you enter an imei on a website I guess.

    almost all AT&T phones will work and most Verizon phones will work. I have a T-mobile S5 on Cricket.
