Cricket Wireless Renames Its Unlimited Plans

cricket-wireless-new-plan-names
If you've recently visited Cricket Wireless' website to look at their unlimited plans, you may have gotten confused with the ones available. That's because Cricket Wireless changed the names of their unlimited plans last April 22. 

These are the new names of the plans: 

Cricket Unlimited Max (Previously Cricket Unlimited)


The Cricket Unlimited plan has been renamed to Cricket Unlimited Max. 

Despite the name change, the plan remains the same at $60/month. It comes with the same unlimited high-speed data access, unlimited calls, texts, and picture messages across the U.S., and Mexico and Canada calling, texting, and roaming included with minimum 50% U.S. usage required. 

You can still save $5/month with Auto Pay discount.

Cricket Unlimited(Previously Cricket Unlimited 2)


Cricket's Unlimited 2 plan has been renamed to Cricket Unlimited.

This plan costs $55/month and includes unlimited data access with data speeds of up to 3Mbps, unlimited calls, texts and picture messages across the U.S., and Mexico and Canada calling, texting, and roaming included with minimum 50% U.S. usage required. Video streaming under this plan is limited to SD quality (480p).

You can still save $5/month with Auto Pay discount.

According to the AT&T prepaid brand, this name change was done to make it easier for people to know the main differences between these two plan options. Before the name change, these two plans had almost similar names, Cricket Unlimited and Cricket Unlimited2; which often confused customers. With these new names, it'll sure give customers more clarity on the prepaid plan option they are picking out.


Except for these new names, these plans are virtually the same. You can get to know more about these offerings by visiting Cricket Wireless' website.

    1. It looks like the cheaper Unlimited plan is now called "Unlimited" on their website. The 2 was completely removed.

    2. Good, "Unlimited Superscript 2" was the worst plan name ever.

  2. And How does this help us the consumer in anyway? Exactly... How about adding free mobile hotspot or giving the 4 lines for $100 AT LEAST 8mbps speeds.

  3. At $55 with autopay discount, the AT&T Prepaid unlimited plan offers full speed data vs the 3Mbps or 8Mbps speeds Cricket offers.

  4. This is off topic, but does Cricket have domestic roaming? I heard conflicting reports about this. After recently traveling from New York to Denver, Signal Spy never indicated roaming when I lost Cricket service.

    4. When did Cricket drop roaming?

      Delete
    5. I think it was about a year ago.

  5. If Cricket is going to start using unicode characters to describe their plans, they could be more clever. How about "Cricket ∞ 💩" for the 3 Mbps unlimited plan and "Cricket ∞ 🥓" for their 8 Mbps unlimited plan?

    1. Except that Cricket is using the <sup> tag, not unicode to display the superscript 2.

  6. Forget this. I'm jumping ship to att prepaid.

    1. I know what you mean.

      Whenever brands change the wording to make things easier to understand, it makes me just wanna flip a table and cancel my service.

      How dare they stress the difference between two vaguely named unlimited plans.

    2. Before you jump ship to AT&T prepaid, consider that they have anytime deprioritization, where Cricket only deprioritizes after 22gb. ATT prepaid has domestic roaming, Cricket does not have domestic roaming. They are probably do this to save money, and to force you onto their more expensive Post paid option.

    3. AT&T Prepaid may deprioritize your data sooner than Cricket but Cricket limits your speed to 3Mbps on their cheaper unlimited plan and 8Mbps on the Max plan which can be both slower and more expensive than the AT&T Prepaid unlimited plan with autopay discount.

  7. Dennis... didn't you comment one time about how you had a feeling that all mvnos have anytime deprioritization instead of the deprioritization after the allotment? I've always thought this and always remembered that comment

    1. Can I getta "AMEN!" ?
      Preach it Brutha' !

    2. I suspect that many carrier prepaid plans, carrier prepaid brands and MVNOs have a lower priority for data than the carrier's most expensive postpaid products.

  8. Htc Desire 555 does screen mirroring. Keep the $10 for hotspot.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Alcatel Idol 3, Idol 4, support screen mirroring, they call it Wifi Display.
