If you do not happen to be a power user who uses lots of data, it may be a little bit of a challenge to find the most affordable contract for you. Sure, there’s quite a few deals out there, but the choice may not quite suit your needs, particularly when it comes to text and voice calls.

Cricket Wireless’s new plan may however add another option to your list. Beginning 9th September, Cricket customers can get unlimited text and calls for $30, along with 1GB of high-speed data. This option may be appealing to customers who have little need for data but find themselves ringing up countless calls and texts.


Also beginning on the 9th of September, people who switch to Cricket can receive a free select 4G LTE smartphone, with activation of a smartphone plan. Customers can choose from the Alcatel STREAK™, ZTE Sonata™ 3 or Kyocera Hydro VIEW.

    • It should be noted that the download speed is maxed at 8 mbps. I found that to be a problem at times. As of yesterday I’m giving Project Fi a shot.

      • I’m used to 1mbps wifi living in the middle of nowhere so 8mbps is actually fast.
        I don’t constantly have a wifi connection so project fi wouldn’t work. I’m on att family plan anyways. I think we’re paying $240 for 7 lines 15gb shared.
        Being a single person it doesn’t make sense to go with a carrier when prepaid is alot cheaper.

        • Where I live I’ve got Charter internet but T-Mo and Sprint coverage is unreliable. Fi only became viable when US Cellular was added. Having a Nexus phone allows me to switch carriers at will to find the best deal for me.
