Cricket APN Settings iPhone

If you have put your Cricket Wireless SIM card in an Iphone that is unlocked (or programmed to be compatible with the network of a different carrier), you can experience issues with MMS, Mobile data (3G, 4G or LTE) and Wireless Internet. Most of the times these issue are caused by wrong APN settings. The Access Point Name values on your Iphone need to be compatible with the Cricket Wireless mobile network to avoid connectivity problems. Normally the APN settings are pre-programmed on your phone.

What network does Cricket use?

After the merger between Leap Wireless International (Cricket’s parent company) and AT&T in 2014, Cricket Wireless has become a subsidiary of the latter. The CDMA network that was previously used by Cricket was replaced by AT&T’s HSPA+ and LTE mobile network. After Cricket Wireless was taken over, they released Iphones that were compatible with AT&T’s 3G, 4G and 4G LTE network. Moreover, if your using your Cricket GSM (Iphone or other device) in combination with the ‘Smart’ or ‘ Unlimited’ plans of the carrier, you can use your mobile data in Mexico and Canada at no extra charge. We’ve published an article about the Cricket LTE Bands.
