Cricket Wireless Brings Down Price of Unlimited 2 Plan to $40/Month

cricket-wireless-$40-unlimited-2-plan-promo
Prepaid brands and MVNOs have been battling each other in the hopes of gaining more customers. One way they do this is by announcing different promotions and deals that seem to be too good for their customers. The latest to launch a new promotion is AT&T-owned prepaid brand, Cricket Wireless.

Earlier today, Cricket Wireless announced that they have reduced the price of their Unlimited 2 plan. Before today's announcement, this plan cost $55 per month. Starting February 16th, however, this plan will be available for only $40 per month.

This $40 per month plan gives you unlimited calls, texts, data, and picture messages when making calls to and from Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. Throughout the U.S., you can also enjoy unlimited data access, texts, calls, and media messages. Plus, you can send unlimited texts from the U.S. to 38 countries. Data speed on this promotional plan is limited to 3 Mbps with video streaming at 1.5 Mbps. Once the allotted 22GB of data is consumed before a billing period is over, the speed will be reduced during times of network congestion.

The promotion is currently exclusive to new customers who decides to switch to the prepaid brand. If you are one, you will receive a $10 monthly bill credit up to a full year for signing up for this promotion. You also have to enroll the plan to AutoPay so you can enjoy the discount.

If you decide to get four lines under this Unlimited 2 plan, that'll set you back $100 per month. This is all thanks to a promotional campaign that the prepaid brand launched in November.

The promotion runs from February 16 until April 12.

  1. At least Boost gave their new $60 plus plan with the 20g hotspot to both new and current. That is a great thing. :)

    1. Thank You!!!!! They give you a discount on the plan with the slowest data speed and STILL NO HOTSPOT for $15 less. WOW, Great!! And what happens after the first year? Does the plan remain at $40?

    2. @ anonymous 11:36.. About after the first year? Your guess is as good as mine lol.

  2. How long does a "switcher" have to be on another carrier's service to be eligible for these switcher deals? Is it possible to buy a tracfone $15 card and activate new service with an unlocked phone and then switch a day later with that one day old tractor service to metropcs or boost mobile or cricket and get these new deals?

    1. I don't know. Any Cricket dealers willing to share this info?

    2. I did that when Cricket is discounting on iPhone. I activated TracFone's cheapest plan and immediately port-in to Cricket. At least it worked month ago.

    3. No limits as long as you meet port requirements and not porting from ATT. Also this discount applies to the $60 unlimited plan as well, and it's a $10 discount and stacks with autopay for up to $15 discount. Autopay is not a requirement.

  3. Why just new customers ?

    1. They already have u paying the high price. Why would they take a hit and let you get more for less? Welcome to the wireless world!

  4. As long as its throttled to 3mbit, its pointless.

  5. No hotspot with this deal?? Not for me!!

  6. If I have a line that is currently on Cricket, and I want to go to this plan, do I count as a "new customer" if I do not care about keeping my number and simply sign up for a new SIM?

    1. You also have to "switch" to Cricket meaning you need to port a number from another carrier.

  7. 8 out of 22 Gigs available for hotspot. So... Get a Samsung with SMART VIEW in the drop down menu for SCREEN MIRRORING. (Galaxy Halo) to compatible smart TV. Perfect fit for those that do NOT have cable/dsl/fios. iPhones require Apple TV to do the same.

    1. Buying a Samsung phone is the expensive way; it's not necessary. iPhones do not need an Apple TV; they can also stream to a Roku or Xbox 360.
      If you have one of those 3 streaming boxes, just download the free Twonky Beam app for the iPhone or Android phone and the Twonky channel/app for the streaming box, and stream away.

  8. Welcome back, Dennis! You were missed and I'm glad you are feeling better :)

  9. Some dvd players have Screen Mirroring, or add a wireless display adapter to the hdmi on the tv. MHL or Slimport are the wired options for Screen Mirroring from phone to the tv. Hotspot may be blocked by the provider, but not Screen Mirroring. Device capable of wired/wireless Screen Mirroring required.

  10. Welcome back Dennis. I hope you are feeling better. We missed you.

    1. I had the flu which turned into pneumonia. I'm still recovering. I feel better but am sleeping about 18 hours a day. My participation here will be limited for a while.

    2. The flu season's been rough this year. Glad to hear you're on the mend, Dennis. Take it easy.

    3. Welcome back - hope you feel back to normal soon.

  11. Ditto on the welcome back Dennis!! Hope it wasn't that nasty flu.

  13. 3mb is fine for streaming Netflix, YouTube etc. but best to find a group for $25 per line.

    1. Cellphone plan groups are a bigger hassle than carpooling. Deadbeat excuses will usually spoil the party and eventually kill the group.
      The only group plan that worked well was the Sprint Framily. $25/month and you got your own bill.

  14. Great to see Dennis back. The place was going to you know where the last couple weeks.

  15. Lucky dude! People are dying from this flue. Stay off the computer and rest. We’ll survive

  16. Despite the 3 mbps throttle, it appears to be the best unlimited plan out there. The 3 mbps speed is not as bad as it sounds.

  17. Twonky is a good app but it requires a router.
    Chromecast does screen mirroring also but needs a router and internet to do ANYTHING.
    Screen Mirroring from Samsung (Smart View),zte, huawei use wifi-direct, so no router. The only internet in the house is from the phone.

    1. In other words, this only helps people who have or get a compatible phone, plus a compatible TV or a compatible wireless dongle for their smart TV.

      Delete
    2. ..... a category which includes most phones and TVs sold now (and on top of that, the Chromecast dongles and Roku boxes which also include casting are massive sellers. And I hate to break it to you, but if someone sold you a "smart" TV that does not support casting, it's not smart.

      You are identifying a problem, but it is one that you have to go out of your way to have. Few people have it.

      Either that, or you are sitting in a rocker watching a 1993 Sony Trinitron and angrily shaking your cane at the world.

  18. Mirror for Roku, in Roku app store. Mirror the screen of your Mac to your Roku. Would it work on iphone?

    1. Mirror for Roku requires a router, costs $10, has 3 sec latency which means games don't work well and is a Mac app, not an iOS app.

  19. So we gather then share information on what works to avoid paying twice for internet. Wire to the home, plus cellphone.

  20. This would be awesome if it was permanent and not a non-sense one-year promo price and it was also open to existing customers.

  21. Cricket has a NEW deal for 50% off the Galaxy S8 (Regular: $699 now half off @ $349 thru 3/29/18.

    Port-in & new service line, ONLINE ONLY

    $349 for a Galaxy S8. I know Cricket won't unlock it for 6 months, but can you still use it on other AT&T mvno's after just paying for one month's service? Will this negatively affect the ability to do MMS texting on GSM mvno's without it being unlocked?

    Also, can you use this Cricket Galaxy S8 on T-Mobile mvno's after first month's payment without waiting/paying thru 6 months service to get it unlocked?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Phones locked to Cricket can only be used on Cricket until unlocked. That's been my experience.
