Cricket's new rate plans, available to customers in Cricket company-owned stores, dealers and on www.mycricket.com, start at $35 and $45 per month for feature phones and offer unlimited nationwide talk and text. New smartphone plans start at $50 for unlimited talk and text and 1GB of full-speed data per month. The $60 smartphone plan contains 2.5GB of full-speed data per month and the $70 smartphone plan offers 5GB of full-speed data per month. Cricket PAYGo™ plans, offered in national retail channels have also been enhanced and are now more uniform with Cricket Wireless, with smartphone rate plans available for $50 or $60 including Muve Music and new data buckets. The new Cricket Wireless and Cricket PAYGo (national retail) rate plans will go into effect Sunday, September 2, 2012.
In addition, Cricket customers on these plans can now use new data tools on their phones to track their data usage throughout the month and buy additional quantities of full-speed data. Under the new rate plans, when customers need more full-speed data than their selected rate-plan provides, they can change to a rate plan with more full-speed data, add one or more 1GB full-speed data add-ons to their plan for $10 each, purchase additional full-speed data as needed at a rate of $1 per 50MB, or make no change and use unlimited reduced-speed data through their paid service period.
Cricket is also improving its international calling capabilities by allowing customers to add international calling features to any Cricket Wireless service plans. In addition, Cricket is introducing a $15 add-on feature that includes Global Local Number, 500 international landline minutes and 30 international mobile minutes.
