Cricket Wireless – Take The Stress Out of Wireless

I was engaged by Cricket Wireless to visit a local store and write about my experience.

After four years of having the same phone, it’s way past time for a new one. My old smartphone no longer meets my needs, so for several months now, I’ve been looking for one that does. And since getting a new phone is a big investment, it’s something that I take seriously.

Having learned that certain of my local Cricket wireless stores are under new management, I decided to check out their phones and plans.

Huge Selection of Smartphones

Choosing the right phone can be overwhelming, but at the Cricket Wireless store, their team members are there to help make the process as easy and enjoyable as possible. When I go into the store, I’m greeted warmly, and the staff is always able to answer my questions, even if I’m not (yet) a Cricket customer.

Not only do they make me feel at home, but Cricket also offers a great variety of premium smartphones — all of which will keep you connected for less on Cricket’s reliable nationwide 4G LTE network.**** You can select one of four FREE 4G LTE smartphones!* Note that this requires service activation (in store up to $25), with a qualified plan (min. $30/mo.), port-in, and a new service line. The first month’s service charge and applicable sales tax are due at sale (see pricing details below).

They also have a wonderful selection of cases and accessories.

Cricket Wireless Plans

One of my biggest pet peeves with my current carrier — aside from being locked in a contract — is that I am practically paying more in monthly fees than I am for the cost of the service! When it comes to plans, Cricket has very simple, straightforward plan pricing starting at just $30 per month!** I also found out I can add my family too, for just $20/mo. per line with 5 lines (after group save discount applied).*** Best of all? There are no annual contracts, and monthly service fees are already included! It makes it easy to stay connected with all your friends and family!

Speaking of staying connected, Cricket’s nationwide network offers more 4G LTE coverage than T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Sprint, or Boost!****

I know now that Cricket’s goal is to make your mobile phone experience easy and bring simplicity to what can be quite a confusing process. They have superior customer service — available to help with all your needs — and it looks like I’ll be doing some serious thinking about making the switch to Cricket.  So make sure to visit a Cricket store near you!

Our phone plan is almost up and we have been searching around for possibly a new carrier. I agree that all of the extra fees and charges are insane and very discouraging to want to stay with that carrier. Maybe we will take a look at Cricket Wireless! Thanks for the great tips!

Cricket Wireless was my very first phone service! I'm glad to see that it's gotten so much better since I've had it well over 15 years ago!

Was it?! How neat! I remember when they first came out as well. And yes, they really have made lots of wonderful changes and improvements!

My daughter uses Cricket Wireless, and I have Straight Talk. I pay less for both of our smartphones than I originally paid for just my phone under Sprint, so I'm glad I made the switch.

That's wonderful! Isn't it crazy how much some of these companies charge?! It's good to know there are other options out there that work just as well (if not better), for less money! Does your daughter like being with Cricket?
