Cricket tells me this isn't a TriBand phone. What I'm reading I have no way to find this out. There are a million of these phones being sold on Ebay and ALL say they will only work for Cricket.

they are compatible with older cricket markets.

many new cricket markets are triband or AWS only, meaning if your phone does not broadcast on the 1700 MHZ frequency, it will not see the network at all.

very few phones are compatible with this. somewhere in the 10-15 range i believe.
