I'd run PGo on a burner WiFi phone like this via primary phone's hotspot so it doesn't turn my LG G3 into a branding iron with 2-3 hour battery life.

Having KitKat and a low resolution 800x480 screen can be a virtue for PGo since they consumer less RAM than Lollipop/Marshmallow and 720p screens. I have two 1GB RAM tablets, one with KK4.4, the other with L5 and the KK crash less often upon/during catching/battle. 1.5~2+GB phone would have been nicer since 1GB is really marginal, and disable unnecessary Google/other apps for a dedicated PGo device. Physical / non-on-screen buttons are nice to avoid touching the home/recent/nav buttons while playing. A small cheap looking phone is less conspicuous too in high theft areas.

As a primary budget Cricket phone? the Galaxy Sol mentioned above is much better with 5" 720p screen and 1.5GB RAM (but still 8GB storage) not to mention the perennial favorite ZTE ZMAX 2.

Looks like about $12 for this particular model - quick search on ebay:

AT&T locked phones will work on AT&T postpaid + AT&T GoPhone prepaid + AT&T MVNOs (like Cricket/H2O/Straight Talk AT&T/etc) without having to unlock them

AT&T MVNO phones are locked to the MVNO only -- you can't use them on another carrier without unlocking it

You'll have to unlock the Cricket phone to use on AT&T

I'm pretty sure this info is wrong.

Jatan is correct about Cricket branded phones needing to be unlocked to work on At&t and other At&t MVNOs. I would not purchase this phone or any other Cricket branded phone with the intention of using it on At&t or their MVNOs WITHOUT unlocking. None of my LOCKED Cricket phones work with my Gophone sim.

Any reason why it's Android 4.4 KitKat?
If it's still Android 4.4 KitKat, probably it's very old. Shouldn't it be $10 or less?
