Cricket Wireless has announced that it will begin selling the Galaxy S5 online and in stores starting this Friday, June 27. Pricing for the GS5 will be $539.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
The Cricket-flavored Galaxy S5 features the same specs as the models currently on other carriers. That means that it’s packing:
Cricket offers smartphone plans that include unlimited talk, text and data along with varying amounts of high-speed data. The $40 Basic plan offers 500MB of high-speed data per month, the $50 Smart plan has 2.GB and the $60 Pro offering includes 5GB of high-speed data. Customers that enroll in Auto Pay can shave $5 per month off of those totals.
It’s great to see Cricket adding another high-end smartphone to its lineup. In the past, prepaid providers have typically been thought of as only selling old or low-end handsets, but that’s changing as of late. Cricket folk can select the Lumia 1320, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, Galaxy S 4 and soon the Galaxy S5 as well.
