    So I got my iPhone unlocked and took it to crickeT. Recently moved and everyone around me says AT&T is the best coverage in my area. That being said, not having great luck in my house with service. Only a bar or sometimes no service.

    Is there anything about my sprint phone limiting my coverage ability? If I had an aTt or cricket iPhone would it work better?

    Or does service just not possibly work well in my house?

    It's probably Cricket's coverage in your area.

    The Sprint iPhone 6 was actually the model Apple sold as the SIM Free model so I don't think it's your phone.

    No.
    It will be the same.
    You don't have wifi calling enabled?

    Thinking of going back to Sprint and just enabling Wi-Fi calling in the house.

    I didn't because that wasn't really helping me out and about which I thought wasn't great either. But thinking I'm just going to bite bullet. Spring is also offering me $300 per line to come back.

    Your phone is unlocked.

    You can take it to any carrier you wish. You don't HAVE to go back to Sprint if it doesn't work for you in your area.

    So wifi calling is your best option. But another option can be to forward your calls to an app (ex textfree) that works off wifi. The negative is that its a pain to remember to forward/unforward the calls. The positive is that you dont have to switch.

    My suggestion will be to get the coverage but you have an option (not the best though).
