    Coverage map

    How accurate is the Cricket coverage map? I ask because me and my family members have or have had several different no-contract carriers (all the big names, really) and none of them have service in a certain area near here. However, the Cricket map shows there is service there. We do know some of the contract carriers (Verizon for sure and I'm pretty sure AT&T) do have service there. Since service in that area would be nice and before I dive in and potentially waste money on a phone, are the maps accurate?

    Ask several people at your local store or gas staion what service they have and if it works good. Only way to know for sure.

    Not a bad plan if it were really local. The place I wonder about is about 45 minutes away and we (and the kids) go there sometimes for school sports events. It's not like we would go there just to go to the convenience store (that's all there is there) to ask people about their cell service. I think we'd be unlikely to find a Cricket user because of its rural location. So that brings up another question - if we do become aware that users there do have AT&T, for instance, would that automatically mean they have Cricket service? In other words, is there a carrier that if there is service there, Cricket will have service there? Thanks.

    Excuses, excuses, ...still the only way to know. Ask enough people 45 mins away until your sampling satisfies you. ...or you can trust strangers here and a colorful online map. And the answer is "probably" imo.

    Or, you can stop by their local Cricket store and look at the bars on their phones.

    AT&T or CDMA? Coverage maps are estimates at best, and Cricket CDMA is in a deterioration mode where I am at, coverage has gone from mediocre to dismal where I work over the past couple weeks on CDMA.

    The only way to really know is to try it, and even then, if it is CDMA, you may see here today gone tomorrow.
