Cricket Wireless is now offering great deals on all of the flagship devices that it carries. All phones that meet that specification are now $200 off for new customers only. For a limited time, flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy S9 and iPhone 8 are now just $499.
Like most great phone deals, there is some fine print to be aware of here. Unfortunately this deal is only good online and it is for new customers who port in and activate a new line of service. Current customers once again get overlooked in favor of new ones.
Those porting from AT&T are also ineligible for this deal.
Cricket won't allow unlocking of any device until it has been used on the network for at least 6 months.
The new line of service must be activated on a plan with data priced $30 or higher. Cricket Wireless's $25 phone plan that includes talk and text only, is not eligible.
All eligible plans include unlimited talk, text and data with the specified amount of data at high speeds. Unless specified, Cricket Wireless considers high speed data to be a maximum of 8 Mbps download.
- $30/month - 2GB of high speed data.
- $40/month ($35 with auto pay AP) - 5GB of high speed data.
- $55/month ($50 with AP) - unlimited data, with data speeds restricted to a maximum of 3 Mbps. Video streaming limited to a resolution of 480p. Unlimited texting from the USA to 38 countries. Talk, text and data access while traveling in Mexico and Canada. Mobile hotspot available on select phones with the first 8GB at high speed for $10/month. Limited time offer, get 1 line for $40/month or 4 for $100.
- $60/month ($55 with AP) - unlimited high speed data. Unlimited texting from the USA to 38 countries. Talk, text and data access while traveling in Mexico and Canada. Mobile hotspot available on select phones with the first 8GB at high speed for $10/month.
Additionally plans priced $40 or higher are eligible for group save discounts. With group save, line 2 gets $10 off and lines 3-5 get $20/off.

If you don't want to spend your hard earned cash on flagship device, Cricket Wireless is also giving away 3 free phones to new customers. Phones include the LG Fortune, ZTE Overture 3, and the Alcatel VERSO. The same restrictions are in place for the free phones that are in place for the $200 off flagship devices offer. The only difference is that the free phones can be activated on Cricket Wireless's $25/month talk and text only plan.
