Cricket’s got a new smartphone plan, and when it launches tomorrow, it’ll be the cheapest one that the prepaid provider has.
Starting tomorrow, Sept. 9, Cricket Wireless will offer a $30 per month smartphone plan with unlimited talk and text and 1GB of high-speed (8Mbps) data. After you use that 1GB, your data speeds will drop to 128Kbps.
Cricket also offers a $40 rate plan with 2.5GB of high-speed data, a $50 plan with 5GB, a $60 plan with 10GB, and a $70 plan with unlimited high-speed data.
Also announced today are some switcher deals. Starting Sept. 9, Cricket will offer a free Alcatel Streak, ZTE Sonata 3, or Kyocera Hydro View to customers that switch to Cricket and activate a smartphone plan.
Another switcher deal offers an Alcatel Idol 4 + VR Experience Pack that includes the Idol 4 smartphone and VR goggles. This package normally costs $199.99, but customers that switch to Cricket and activate service can get it for $99.99.
