What is the difference between Nationwide Talk & Text Coverage and Roaming Coverage?
Nationwide Talk & Text Coverage allows you to use your phone without roaming costs in all 50 states (including the top 125 cities nationwide) and Puerto Rico.
Roaming provides customers the ability to use their Cricket service throughout the US and Canada even when outside the Nationwide Talk & Text Coverage Area. There is an additional charge for roaming calls.
Cricket Wireless customers can use their Flex Bucket or pre-purchased Roaming Minutes to use Cricket service in roaming areas. Cricket PAYGo customers must use their account balance to pay for Roaming Minutes.
All customers should update their PRL by dialing *228 before entering a Roaming coverage area.
