Will a locked At&t phone work with Cricket Wireless?

So I was thinking of buying this used iPhone 8 plus on mercari app for about 575 and it says it's att locked but at the description it says it can be used for cricket, h2o, red pocket, etc. I was wondering if this is true so I can buy the phone as soon as possible

@Yuanuy03 Despite what the rep above said, yes, a locked ATT phone will work on Cricket because Cricket is ATT.

Hi, Yuanuy03,

 

If, as the seller says, the iPhone 8+ is locked to us, it will need to be unlocked before taking it to another carrier. Take a look at the requirements under our things you need to know about unlocking your device. You'll definitely want the seller to have the device unlocked for you if you purchase it.

 

As always, when buying a phone from a third party vendor, caveat emptor: let the buyer beware. Everything may well be fine, but you won't have the protections you would otherwise have if you buy the device from us, the manufacturer, or a retail establishment we have a contract with.

 

Have a great weekend!

Hi I went to ask a cicket store if my iPhone X will work with them she told me no because  The iPhone X are high tech phones . Does that matter

I’m trying to buy an iPhone X locked to AT&T off amazon, Will it work with Cricket? I know AT&T is the parent company of CricKet, hence why I’m asking.
