Update: Few users have reported that AT&T is working for them. Our internal AT&T testing also works. Hence it seems the issue is only limited to Cricket wireless as of now.
A Teracube 2e (T2e) backer has reported that Cricket wireless activation is failing. It is most likely because AT&T changed their activation policy just 1 week back on Jan 19, 2021 (AT&T link).
Note 1: This only affects Cricket wireless in the US. All other supported networks in the US like TMobile, MetroPCS, Mint mobile, Ting, etc should work out of the box. The same holds for all international carriers in Canada, UK, the EU, and other countries.
Note 2: Your Cricket SIM may become out of service if you try activating it - as reported here. In that case, you can call Cricket customer service to re-activate it on your old phone.
Our action plan:
- We had already started the AT&T certification process 3 months back. It is a slightly stretched process with multiple rounds of software fixes and lab testing. It will take another 6-8 weeks to get completed.
Update: Our test Cricket SIM did not activate. So we have to wait for certification to complete for Cricket wireless to work.
Stay tuned for more updates on this.
