    I recently purchased the iPhone 6 Plus on AT&T. I just found out that AT&T owns Cricket. Cricket's plans are much cheaper. Has anyone recently switched to Cricket from AT&T? Was your coverage different? Did it meet your expectations? The only "catch" I notice so far is download speeds are maxed to 8Mbps, but that should be plenty for my needs. Thanks!

    Did you get a new 2 year contract with your new phone? Would you save more $$ on Cricket than the contract termination fee with AT&T? Things to think about before determining if a switch is possible...

    I have great service on cricket and I have never had a problem with the speeds. I was hesitant because of that but never an issue. I love it and am saving SO Much more money. I'd definitely suggest it.

    The question is, besides the 8gb let cap, is the coverage exactly the same as AT&T? I'd like to know the trade offs

    Should is the keyword, many times with carriers when they open the "cheaper" option companies, the monthly AT&T contract customers get priority and many times you do not have access to all the towers. An example would be AT&T customers get access to 100% of the towers but GoPhone customers only get access to 70% of the towers and are not given priority in congested areas.

    I would recommend getting a sim card from them and throwing it in a spare/cheap phone for a month and use it where you would normally use your AT&T iPhone and compare the coverage.

    I switched a couple months ago. I have not experienced any issues with coverage at all. I cannot tell the difference between the two.
