    AT&T finalized the purchase of Cricket and will merge AIO and Cricket under the Cricket brand name.

    I guess it is because Cricket is the more established name but I actually liked 'AIO'.

    I actually liked the AIO name better too. Cricket would've been a good name for an iDEN carrier back in the day, since the Nextel/iDEN PTT did have a really distinctive 'chirp'. But since iDEN is dead, I would've preferred the name AIO.

    Haha, I like "Cricket" way better. At least it's the name of a cute insect and not some random thing.

    I would have thought mms works since its running on the att network. Did you download the network access app?

    Even though tethering isn't in the AIO terms of service it actually works great (as many of us have found). But tethering is allowed in the Cricket TOS, so hopefully us tethering users won't be so ambiguous in the future.

    I also preferred the AIO brand. Cricket had no brand image protection with their licensed stores. Most of them in my area look like cheap liquor stores and are usually next to cheap liquor stores. They are usually dirty, run down, and uninviting. I hope ATT can do something about that.

    Sorry to tell you that running the network app was your mistake. Do a back-up and factory reset your phone, slip in the aio sim and you'll have everything working including Internet Sharing.

    so your saying I shouldn't install the network app? I get my 1520 back from the repair shop today so I'll restore the phone and give your advice a try. thanks

    I'm thinking I might switch to aio soon, did you buy an unlocked 1520? or can you just buy phones from at&t and have them work on aio?

    AT&T phones work on AIO, no unlocking necessary.

    Maybe he/she is in the same boat as me, T-Mo's coverage blows!!! At least in Miami.

    I was on att for 8 years before I switched to aio this last September. my coverage is the same and the 8mb download speed cap is not an issue. I'm saving 40-50$ a month and never have to worry about overages. att can suck it.

    Has anyone had experience using a T-Mobile 925 on aio? Their website says it SHOULD work. That wasn't the most reassuring answer ever. I'm intrigue by how much cheaper they are

    Why would you not? Better coverage, better phone options, and for less money? it's practically a no brainer.

    Almost any AT&T phone works. They have an IMEI checker on their website. And the ATT iPhone may have some additional steps to make work than just swapping the sims, depending on how it was set up.

    there are a few catches. LTE speeds are capped at 8mbps per TOS, though I get 10-12 most of the time.
    There is no visual voicemail support for Windows Phones on AIO.
    Officially they don't allow tethering, though they do nothing to block it. Tethering works fine in practice.
    They don't support DataSense, just like AT&T doesn't.

    If you can live with that the actual coverage, service, and prices are great.

    It would have to be unlocked first. And some of the bands aren't the same as the ATT version so your coverage and/or speed might be impacted.

    It will be unlocked soon, wish I had a AIO store that I could go in and try out one of their sims. I put my T-mobile sim in a 928 once to check it out and got everything to work.

    I switched from Verizon to T-mobile to save some $$ (and I used their promotion to pay my ETF), but the coverage was terrible. I switched to AIO (now Cricket) and couldn't be happier, even cheaper than T-mobile and great speeds, and I can use any AT&T phone (which I see as a bonus being that they usually get the best windows phones).

    Also I like the name Cricket better. I could never tell if it was Aio (ay oh), or A I O (a eye oh), now no more guessing.
