Cricket Wireless has released two new smartphones, the Cricket Debut and Cricket Dream 5G. Both devices are too new to have any online reviews. The Dream 5G was only announced last week, and will not be available to purchase in stores until September 24th. However, it is available online now for purchase for $189.99 for switchers, upgrades, and new lines. The Cricket Debut was quietly released with no fanfare. It's available for $79.99 to all customers.
