Cricket's New Holiday Ad Touts Free Cricket Dream 5G Phone

To support Cricket's free 5G phone offer, a new TV ad has been launched. The ad, entitled "Holidays: Winter Wonderland," features a very happy Cricket customer in the snow who spins around and around in a circle while holding her new phone. She proclaims "it's everything I wished for." The ad continues with one of Cricket's mascots telling the woman's significant other "I told you she'd love her new 5G phone from Cricket." The ad finishes with a picture of the Cricket Dream 5G and shows in bold lettering "free 5g phone when you switch, plus fast, nationwide 5G." Watch the ad below.

At the end of October, Cricket Wireless made 5G network access available with all of its plans. The company is wasting no time advertising the availability of that network.
