will my sim card work in a cricket phone?

If I were to purchase a Cricket phone, would my AT&T sim card work in it? I know AT&T bought Cricket last year...so I figured that may be possible. Is it?

Re: will my sim card work in a cricket phone?

Hello! @JredTheRed  Thank you for posting your questions about purchasing a Cricket phone.

 

Any newer Cricket 4G LTE phone will work with an AT&T SIM card and provide voice and data service.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: will my sim card work in a cricket phone?

Unkess hte phone is unlocked from Cricket I would not count on it I purchased a Cricket HTCDesire from WalMart as a temporary phone for my son. I had been told it would work fine with AT&AT sim card. Inserted the sim and powered on the phone I got a message asking for an unlock code. I contacted Cricket via chat and asked about it. they stated the phone had to be active on Cricket for 6 months before it could be unlocked. I tried AT&T chat also and there is nothing they could do sine it is technically not an AT&T phone. =If it is used make sure to get it unlocked before purchasing if new I would pass.

is it still being used on cricket right now or was it originally an AT&T phone? if on Cricket just make sure your friend has it unlocked first
