The 'Groove from Cricket' offers impressive design and is loaded with features not commonly found in a smartphone at this price and can be activated on one of Cricket's three monthly smartphone service plan options starting at $50 per month. All Cricket plans, including smartphone service plans, feature all-inclusive pricing with no service fees and no overage charges. For customers, that means a predictable monthly bill, regardless of increasing usage, offered at a price point that fits into a value conscious budget.
