    Unlocked Motorola Edge 5G

    I take it If I put my BYOP tracfone Sim card out of my Moto Z2 force and in the Edge I won't get 5G, just 4G

    The 3 service providers seem to be holding back 5G exclusively for their big money spenders.

    Depends on the service. USMobile offers 5g on all their unlimited plans (which include VZW and TMO) which start at $12 a month (more like $15 or so with required taxes and fees). As you mentioned Cricket has it available only on their top plan, though while TracFone doesn't have it available at all.

    I think T-Mobile offers 5G to its MVNOs, if a phone is capable of it. I put a TracFone-TMO SIM in my Samsung A71 5G. The icon shows 5G, and according to various network signal apps, it is using 5G.

    I did one speedtest that showed 150 Mbps download. I didn't do more because I don't want to waste my data bucket.

    What type of speeds did you get with non 5G T-Mobile? I seem to remember people claiming higher speeds all along with T-Mobile and Sprint?

    I don't do speedtests much. I only did that one since I wanted to see what a 5G phone might do. I think my LTE speeds at that location (my house) are usually around 30 Mbps. I'm sure 5G (and LTE) could be much higher in other areas.
