Cricket Wireless wants you to make the switch! For a limited time only, they are giving a $50 credit to individuals who switch service to the prepaid mobile carrier. And that's not all. For those who are switching from T-Mobile, an extra $50 credit will be given. And if you plan to use your own unlocked device, another $35 credit will be given to you.

If these things sound exciting for you, it's important that you know some important facts beforehand. Firstly, you need to port over your current number and choose from one of the plans offered starting with the $40/month. You will also need to pay about $10 for a new Cricket SIM card as well as fees amounting up to $25 (inclusive of taxes).

The plans offered under Cricket Wireless include:

  • Basic ($40/month) - includes unlimited nationwide talk and text and 2.5 GB high-speed data
  • Smart ($50/month) - includes unlimited nationwide talk and text, unlimited international texting to 38 countries, data access plus unlimited talk and text to and from Mexico, Canada, and US, and 5 GB high-speed data
  • Pro ($60/month) - includes unlimited nationwide talk and text, unlimited international texting to 38 countries, data access plus unlimited talk and text to and from Mexico, Canada, and US, and 10 GB high-speed data
  • Unlimited ($70/month) - includes unlimited nationwide talk and text, unlimited international texting to 38 countries, data access plus unlimited talk and text to and from Mexico, Canada, and US, and unlimited high-speed data

    1. The only way I would consider Cricket is if they offered unthrottled LTE data like MetroPCS. I would willingly pay the 70 per month asking price.

      Delete
    2. MetroPCS data is always "throttled" to 0mbps in most places I go or would consider going. Even Sprint is so much faster.

  2. 135$ credit is cool..

  3. The bug in the graphic above does not look a tree cricket. It looks more like an aphid.
    I guess they think crickets are too ugly to show as their mascot.

    1. The new H2O plans do sound like a step up from Cricket, especially for data.

  5. Does prepaid T-Mobile qualify? The fine print doesn't mention any distinction

  6. No, thank you. I won't be giving up MetroPCS anytime soon.

    1. Giving up Metro means hugely better coverage,and slower data.

      Delete
    2. If somebody has metro now they know what their coverage is like. If coverage is bad, switch and see if it gets better at the cost of slower data. If coverage is good, stay with metro and enjoy the speed.

      If you haven't tried either, the names are a good hint. If you live in a metro area, go with metro for better data. If you live where you hear crickets at night, go with Cricket for rural coverage.

    3. Except Cricket works in metro areas and Metro doesn't work where you hear crickets.

      Get Metro if you are 100% sure you won't stray into the half of the country that gives dead silence on Metro.

      Delete
    4. Metro LTE covers more than 2/3 of the 48 state land area now. Voice, HSPA+, 3G, 2G and SMS work in even more places. 308M people, more than 93% of the US population get the Metro network. No FUD, please.

    5. Cricket barely works in metros because you're always throttled. Metro is way better almost everywhere (even many rural areas) because T-Mobile has more towers per square mile than any other carrier. Not only that, Metro covers nearly the same POPs and offers WiFi calling + VoLTE + unlimited music. Cricket is third rate prepaid below Boost Mobile. I used to miss tons of calls, MMS, and data always gets de-priortized. It's literally a joke of a service. Look at it this way, Cricket is so desperate they have to offer T-Mobile customers credits just to switch. Credits on prepaid tells you how bad the service really is.

    6. "Cricket barely works in metros because you're always throttled"

      Tell us what a throttled speed fast enough to do HBO and Netflix prevents you from doing. Until then, it is all FUD.

      "Metro LTE covers more than 2/3 of the 48 state land area now. Voice, HSPA+, 3G, 2G and SMS work in even more places. 308M people, more than 93% of the US population get the Metro network. No FUD, please.

      Metro covers half if you happen to have a Band 12 device

      I present only facts, not FUD. You falsify information about a distant third choice inferior network in order to fool people into thinking it is running with the big dogs (the only two good nationwide networks).

      As for 308 million people, the statistic as you present it is meaningless. We are talking a mobile network here. The US has 320 million people. Anything AT&T or Verizon based will cover these 320 million people in the vast majority of places they go in the Lower 48. Nothing based on any other network even comes close.

      "more than 93% of the US population get the Metro network"

      Again, an invalid attempt to deceive by you. 100% of Americans only get the Metro network if they go to the small area that is covered by it.

    7. OP has Metro. You don't.

      I think we all know who is more believable when it comes to real world coverage, etc.

      Delete
    8. Yes, coverage doesn't lie. Metro is a poor choice for a mobile network, compared to anything based on Verizon and AT&T.

      But Metro and its shills can hang on to "Hey, it's better than Sprint!" points.

  7. Well damn.

    I would've loved to get that $35 credit using a Zmax2.

  8. Can I buy a sim from gamestop, sign up over the phone and porting at the same time and still get the credit?

    1. That should be OK. The terms of the offer include;

      "$9.99 Universal SIM Card Kit & unlocked, GSM-compatible smartphone req'd. If purch. at National Retailer locations, 1st month svc charge due at activation. SIM Card Kit may be final sale."

      Delete
    2. What does "SIM Card Kit may be final sale" mean?

      Delete
  9. Excellent deal. Great coverage. No dropped calls on my area. I switched from T-Mobile and received my 100.00 credit last month on the previous deal. I will add another line and received this deal next.

    ReplyDelete
  10. MetroPCS still has a much better deal: Two lines for $60/month, with 6GB/line. Two free phones when you switch your numbers. Cricket charges $70, and only gives 2.5GB/month at crippled speeds. This is one reason why MetroPCS has twice as many customers as Cricket.

    1. Metro gives more data because their overall coverage is inferior to AT&T coverage. Quantity over quality. I typically go for quality over quantity, but not always. I am on TPO (T-mobile) and get 2/4 bars (moto g) at work where as when I was with H2O(AT&T) I would get 3-4 bars at all times. Planning on swtiching back to H2O due to the new data increases.

      Delete
    2. You can get up to 5 lines on Cricket, all with 5GB, for $30 each (after group discounts).

      Unlike Metro, you can also go as high as $50 for unlimited LTE, or as low as $20 for 2.5GB.

      Cricket is just cheaper and more accommodating.

      The best part is, Cricket's deals aren't "in-store," so you don't even have to bother with sales reps.

      On the other hand, Metro likes to plaster all their deals with fine print to the point where it's too much of a bother.

  11. where to get Tmobile sims for less to transfer to Cricket?

    1. Dennis: I am getting error "SIMDEAL is an expired coupon".. Seems like its expired already..

      Delete
    2. $4.99 at most BestBuy stores T-Mobile Complete SIM Starter Kit White T-MOBILE COMPLETE SIM STARTER - Best Buy.

      If you have Prime, Amazon is also $4.99. There are usually several eBay sellers that have the SIMs for $5 or less.

      Delete
    3. Dennis: Does BB sim card KIT comes with 30mins talk time too?. If now, can I add $3 (30days) pay as you go plan?

      Delete
    4. There's no airtime included with unactivated SIMs from BestBuy, Amazon etc.
      Unless T-Mobile has changed things very recently you can port a number to the SIM wait a few hours and port the number back out without ever adding any airtime.
      In the unlikely event you do need to add airtime, the minimum you can add is $10.

      Delete
  12. Dennise: Even I have similar question.. Already got t-mobile SIM last month and current 30mins credit expired. How long I can retain the account before porting to Cricket?. Does T-mobile keep the account/phone for 60-90days without any payment?. Worst case scenario I need to add $10 but waiting to avoid since anyway I am porting to cricket in 2 weeks.

    1. Your account will be closed and your phone number will be lost 120 days after the account is suspended for non-payment.

      See our Prepaid Operator Profile: T-Mobile | Prepaid Phone News.

  13. T-Mobile should jack up their SIM prices whenever Cricket runs a promotion like this to cash in on the deal.
