Cricket Wireless beefs up some of its data plans, prices remain the same

The carrier offers some select smartphones for free too

Looking for a LTE enabled smartphone and a data plan to go with it? Cricket Wireless has a few offers for you. The carrier just announced it is upgrading some of its data plans and giving select smartphones away for free to customers willing to bring their number to Cricket.

The company has raised the data access in the $40/month plan from 2.5GB to 3GB and in the $60 plan from 10GB to 12GB. Cricket offered 8GB instead of 5GB for $50/month as part of a previous promotion and has now decided to lock it in.

Now let’s see the smartphones (complete with specs) you can get for free once you bring your number to Cricket (or $9.99 for upgrades and new lines of service):
