Does anybody here have the Moto G (GSM) on Cricket Wireless? If so how is it. Debating on buying myself out of my Verizon Contract and going with Cricket. I'd save $600 a year.

While I can't comment about how a Moto G would work with Cricket Wireless, I can advise that a Moto X works great with it. I live in the Gainesville area in Georgia and I get 8 meg per second downloads and between 3 and 5 megs a second for my uploads according to speedtest.net.

My Wife is using Cricket on a Galaxy Nexus and her speeds aren't quite as nice as mine due my phone having LTE, but for her it's around 3 megs download and about 500K to 1 meg per second upload speeds.

we had previously been using Straight Talk and Net10 running on the same AT&T network and speeds were comparable to what my wife is getting currently, however we both used to have a lot of frustrating periods where our data connections would run slow or time out on us. We haven't had that problem with cricket, which is awesome.

THANK YOU.

Currently I have the Moto X Dev on Verizon and my wife has the Droid Ultra. Would really like to take them with us but the LTE wouldn't work. Just tired of paying so much money.

Works great. However, it is an XT1032, so no tmobile aws should you switch. No wifi tethering though you can bluetooth it with pdanet+.

And the bootloader is locked and no way to unlock via motorola. that's the biggest gripe.

Want mine? I just went to a us gsm model.

No thanks. I was going to go with the US GSM Model from Motorola if I go. Or get a Nexus 5.

I switched my wife over to a unlocked Moto-G for her cricket wireless service, it's been flashed with CM11 nightly and is running very well for her, speeds are comparable to what she was getting. I think if you don't mind paying a little more the new 4G LTE version of the Moto G would work well for you.
