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

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!

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

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.
