Cricket Wireless has announced another promotion for those that are willing to make the switch to the AT&T owned MVNO. To be eligible, potential subscribers must port in from a provider other than AT&T, and activate a new line of service on a qualifying plan all in one transaction. Eligible plans start at $30/month. Those that qualify for the promotion will receive a $50 account credit.
A Summary Of Cricket Wireless's Eligible Phone Plans are as follows:
All include unlimited talk and text
- $30 starter plan, 1 GB of data
- $40 basic plan, 4 GB of data
- $50 smart plan, 8 GB of data + full service roaming while in Mexico and Canada
- $60 unlimited plan, unlimited LTE data + full service roaming while in Mexico and Canada
Subscribers can save an additional $5 per month on their phone bill on all plans but the $30 one by enabling autopay billing in their account.
Unfortunately this promotion is in store only. In store Cricket Wireless will charge you $9.99 for a SIM card, up to $3 in customer service fees and up to $25 in activation charges. So in all, this promotion is essentially saving you on fees and the high price that Cricket is charging for SIM cards given that they are currently selling for $0.99 at Amazon.
Cricket says that you're account will be credited the money within 60 days of activation, and subscribers must make two bill payments within 45 days to receive the credit.
In addition to the $50 bill credit for porting in, Cricket Wireless is also offering a selection of free phones which include the Alcatel Streak, ZTE Sonata 3, Samsung Amp 2, and LG Fortune. Other phones, such as the LG Escape 3, Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime, LG X Power, ZTE Blade X Max, LG Stylo 2 and several others are being offered at a significant discount to those that port in as well.
You can find out more by visiting your local Cricket Wireless store, or through the Cricket Wireless website.

After researching how to cut costs on his phone bill, he came across the terms 'MVNO' and 'prepaid wireless', and learned there was a way he could keep using his favorite network without having to pay a premium price for it. Since then, through BestMVNO.com, Joe has been sharing his research about MVNOs and prepaid wireless so that others can learn how to save money on their own phone bills.
