Cricket Wireless Now in All 50 States

cricket-wireless
Cricket Wireless celebrates a milestone today. As announced on a press release, the company now has a Cricket branded store in all 50 states in the U.S. The news comes two and a half years after they relaunched the company. In this time frame, the company was able to expand to over 1,300 stores throughout the country. Its first store can be found in Portland, Maine.

Along with the store in Maine, the products and services of Cricket Wireless can now be purchased at over 4,300 Cricket Wireless-branded company and authorize retail stores throughout the 50 states and the District of Columbia. There is also over 14,000 points of retail distribution along with more than 800 new branded locations expanded in the last year. 

With these numbers, Cricket Wireless president John Dwyer is confident of the future of no-annual-contract wireless service. And along with this, customers get more value with the service they are enjoying. Together, this redefines customer experience as it allows customers to opt for prepaid wireless service and still enjoy more data on their smartphone at an affordable cost. Compared to 5 to 10 years ago, this wasn't the case.

If you wish to get one of Cricket Wireless' no-annual-contract wireless plans, you may now visit any of their 14,000 retail outlets located around the country. Or you can go to their website to take a look at their plans that start at $30/month.

    1. Also... if you use a lot of mibutes, and a lot can varry depending on the MVNO, some cap at 3500 some at 5000, then MVNOs are not your cup of tea.

    2. Just wondering in terms of taxes.

      If a corporation is based in state X and has a store in state Y?

      Will the residents of state Y need to be taxed?

      If yes, then we know that Cricket has been taking the hit for many states, now we know that they are for ALL states.

      Just interesting how they can progress so much while, if they do indeed need to pay taxes, they were taking the hit on behalf of their customers.

      This tells you that their system allows them to profit even with this angle.

      But honestly, this may be due to the fact that ATT owns them directly, and all airtime is not leased.

      I wonder if MVNOs, when the customers do not pay tax, as when they are from another state, I wonder, what percentage of MVNOs customers are from a different state?

      Could MVNOs survive if they too took the tax hit for their customers?

    3. There is no hit, it's simply priced in, just like T-Mobile is switching to.

  2. If they put towers on the stores they could double their coverage.

    1. Commercial districts have really high rent, and are full of people with radiation exposure limits. They'll keep building towers in cheap, remote locations.

    2. So there are places that there are Cricket stores but no ATT coverage?

    3. "Commercial districts have really high rent, and are full of people with radiation exposure limits."

      More like "full of people with irrational fears"

      Here's some science:

    4. No more cancer, no more American Cancer Society. They can't afford that. You need to come up with actual independent sources that aren't tied to some special interest that is seeking to make lots o money off cancer (pharmaceuticals, hospitals, etc).

    5. On one side, facts.

      On the other, baseless conspiracy theories based on fear, misinformation, and phobias.

  3. How about a promotional rate plan to celebrate the anniversary or the return of the port in credit?

      I think the even worse problem is that Gophone has lowered their prices, as has Verizon. Those two are on the same level as far as the network goes, compared to Cricket. MetroPCS is not... yet.

    1. Two seconds to load this page on Cricket.

  7. I always thought that Cricket was such a goofy brand of wireless. I remember when Cricket just offered those large flip phones for seniors, then when ATT bought them, they ventured to go more mainstream. I always said that ATT strategically makes Cricket's brand, pom pom mascots and marketing a little goofy to sustain a stigma of using prepaid. Luckily for me, I use Virgin Mobile with an iPhone 6S.

    1. Poor you...VM has interesting coverage. I'd take chirping Cricket coverage any day over VM's NO coverage where I live.

    2. Virgin was my 1st prepaid carrier. As such, I figured sporadic coverage was normal.

      Virgin (Sprint) meets the coverage needs of a small minority of Americans.

  8. I use Cricket for keep my Advanced Plan which gives me 20GB of LTE data. If not, I already moved to another carrier.

    1. Cricket has a high amount of data for the money, coupled with a near-the-top network that no one comes close to ... yet.

    1. You can't thank someone for something that hasn't occurred.

      Assuming you meant that a comment of yours wasn't published. Doing such as a matter of editorial control of One's Own form. It's an expression of free speech, not the elimination of it.

      You are free to start your own Forum about telephones. But you can step in and presume to control someone else's...

    2. I haven't had to delete any comments recently. I don't know what the OP is talking about.

    3. Never underestimate the ability of a troll to rage and complain over partially imagined, or in this case. purely imagined, justices.
