    Not a better value if you don't need 10GB per month. Unless the purpose is to make a donation to the Carlos Slim fund.

    Low priority mvno like cricket? I’m sure AT&T’s in house prepaid brand would get higher priority than a 3rd party MVNO.

    I switched from VZW to cricket earlier this month, but I chose to go on the Unlimited plan for $60/mo. I've been very happy with the switch. My only issue is that hotspot doesn't work, but I knew that going in.

    My XAA Note 8, S8, and S8+ all do. Used over 500GB last month. I hear almost any unlocked phone can tether.

    Wow, I'm bringing over a Verizon branded moto Z play (missing band 12) so I'm gonna look at picking up a different phone.

    Does it have Band 17? If so, that will work: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wirel...y-700-mhz-band

    Yep - if this is correct (searching Moto Z Play Verizon yielded it), it looks like it's only got 13 (Verizon's 700MHz band): https://www.phonearena.com/phones/Mo...-Droid_id10227

    AT&T/Cricket use a lot of 12/17 for LTE, so an upgrade probably would help.

    All 8 series Samsung have identical US hardware. If you unlock any it will automatically update to whatever SIM you have (assuming they have native firmware). IE Note 8 isn't doesn't have Cricket software. XAA keeps it without any branding regardless of SIM. It is the factory unlocked firmware. I think Samsung has been doing identical hardware across carriers since the 6 series. As far as I know 8 is the first time their firmware changes with your SIM. This is similar to iPhones. I think almost all unlocked software phones allow tethering without paying.

    Don’t need 10gb. Cricket is the perfect solution for me.

    Works for us as well.

    We took a road trip through Arizona, Nevada, and California. About 99% of the time we had signal and were able to stream music without an issue.

    I doubt T-Mobile/Metro PCS would be able to have the same connection throughout.

    Better value is not the same as best plan for an individual. Some people use very little data such as my MiL. She uses less than 1GB per month. Some people need customer service which at times with ST is not very good.

    No need to engage B1geast...known Cricket troll. His post is loaded with fake news. I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that 99.9% of the population falls into the “uses less than 5 GB” or “needs unlimited” category which renders the 10GB StraightTalk plan moot. You couldn’t pay me to use their service with their terrible customer service.

    Nah. Motorola I know doesn't allow tethering. Even unlocked phones.
