    Does Cricket provide phone service by WiFi? If not, what does it use?

    Cricket doesn't have WiFi calling right now. For cell service Cricket uses AT&T towers.

    You can still use Google Hangouts for WiFi calling though.

    How do the towers work? How do I get WiFi if there isn't any? I probably couldn't "make my own".

    Cricket uses AT&T towers for talk, text, and mobile data (they are actually owned by AT&T).

    WiFi is not provided by the cell carrier, it's a wireless internet connection. You can have WiFi through your home internet, and many retail stores have WiFi available for customers to use.

    If somebody doesn't have WiFi, then, it's hopeless? Are there some kind of portable WiFi devices?

    You'll still have mobile data, as mentioned in my last post, with Cricket for internet. No need for a separate WiFi device. :)

    Mobile data provided by the phone company is different then WiFi. :thumbsupdroid:

    Let's explain: Your carrier gives you data per month, let's say, 2GB. Using the internet on your phone uses data. If you use WiFi, you're not using data. Your connecting to the internet by WiFi, which people use in homes, some businesses, and public places. This way your not using you valuable data up.
