Switching my SIM card into an iPhone

I am already aware that my AT&T iPhone will accept my cricket SIM card . My question is in reference to iMessage and FaceTime features. Will I still be able to use those from my phone number if I put my cricket SIM card into the phone? Please help.

Data is done differently. You'll hit Cricket and ask them for the "APN" information. The voice and old style SMS works with just a SIM card change but those other items? Cricket has to tell you which APN values to use.

Don't know APN? Read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Access_Point_Name but that's just going to confuse most. Really, just ask Cricket for the settings.
