    I have two Lumia 635 phones on T-Mobile right now. Since Cricket prices are so much better I am considering getting them unlocked and going to Cricket on the ATT network and I have some questions.

    1.) Can anyone tell me whether my TMO L635 supports all the same frequencies that an ATT/Cricket L635 would?
    2.) Should I expect the coverage area and speeds on Cricket that I would on ATT since it is the same network?
    3.) Is there anything else I should be considering here?

    1) Frequencies are a GO

    2) mvno may cap your data speed. I think Cricket throttles the LTE speed as compared to ATT direct

    3) Your phone will still update on the T-Mo schedule

    Thanks RumoredNow! I researched the data speed cap and it looks like Cricket throttles LTE to 8Mbps and HSPA+ to 4Mbps. I knew there had to be a catch considering the huge difference in price. I'm not a speed demon though so I might just do this.
