    Cricket for the win.

    I was recently a Sprint, T-Mobile, and Att subscriber. Out of those 3, Att had the best coverage in my area, but also was the most expensive. So I did some research and found out that Att purchased Cricket. They are a MVNO(Mobile Virtual Network Operator) and use Att's network towers. I have been on Cricket for over 2 years and love it. Once I saw a discount for these prepaid cards, I jumped on it. You can use these prepaid cards to pay your monthly bill even if you're signed up for the monthly auto pay. I'm signed up so I know. I can't believe most people pay expensive Att prices, when they can come over to Cricket for a fraction of the cost. Yes, I know they throttle you to 8mbp's download speeds, but honestly that is more than enough when you want to download something. Upload speed is awesome. I have never had an issue with them at all. To be able to spend $50 on a $70 prepaid card is a huge savings for me.

    Great Deal if switching to Cricket anyway

    I was upset with our old carrier adding excessive "Fees" on top of taxes, and had already made the decision to switch to Cricket. As we already had two family members on Cricket, we could add 3 more users for a total of $100.00 for five lines (8GB data each- plus unlimited talk and text). As my old plan was severely limited on data and talk, this was a great upgrade and reduced my out of pocket for monthly service. So ... Back to the Cricket refill card. As I was buying a bundle with a phone and a SIM card, it was an even greater deal, as I was able to buy the SIM card and the refill card for $42.00 AND get $50.00 off the cost of the new phone. Great Math in my book. I was able to apply the face value of $40.00 to my new Cricket account and was ahead of the game.

    Easy to use, applies directly to account as credit

    PROS: These prepaid cards are easy to apply to your account, either by text or using the Cricket Mobile App, and they are stored in your account until needed to pay your balance or for other Cricket services. The dollar amount is applied to your account, and with autopay turned on you still get the $5 discount/month even when there is a credit on your account. The amount can be applied to any plan value (i.e. a $70 card will pay for two months of the $40 plan after autopay discount) and if there isn't enough credit left in your account your credit card will be charged the remaining amount. CONS: Because this is a physical card, sales tax and other locality-specific fees are charged on top of the $70 when purchasing.

    A lower-rent AT&T.

    They work off the AT&T network, so the coverage is as good as you'd expect. No, it's not quite as perfect as the big guns (like the aforementioned AT&T, or Verizon or T-Mobile), but the price isn't quite as high, either. If you get involved with them, it's roughly $30 a month for 2GB of data, or $40 for five. They even slice off five bucks a month if you enroll in auto-pay for five gigs a month or more. Not bad for a silly little company with a silly little puffball as their mascot. I'm sold.

    What they don't tell you

    Purchased this as a gift for my daughter. Before I gave it to her she switched phone carriers, so I tried to return it, unused, and the back still intact. Best Buy refused to take it back, said once it was sold it was out of their hands, couldn't be returned. That may be true, and I'm more than willing to accept my responsibility. However, I do feel there is also a duty of Best Buy to inform customers making an online purchase when that item is not returnable. I have been unable to find any such disclaimer anywhere related to this card.

    The card came on time, but when try to use the Cricket system says the refill card is not activated. So I figured I ll have to go to a store for help. The guys at BBY was nice and was trying to help. Somehow I believe that they cannot activate the card at the store terminal (which i believe is cause that the card was delivered to home), and it took about 30 mins for them to figure they will have to give me a fresh activated card as replacement.

    Cricket Wireless is the best non-carrier cellular

    When you compare Cricket's plans with the competition, you’ll find them nearly unbeatable. For $35, its basic 2.5GB data tier tends to be great for many users, while its $65 unlimited plan is the cheapest avenue to truly unlimited data on the market. The AT&T network, meanwhile, is the strongest available from any prepaid provider. If you're looking for the service and support of a small company with the network authority of a large one, Cricket could win your heart. It’s the best non-carrier cell phone provider.

    Card not registered as Sold by the retailer!

    Buy this card online at your own risk... The card was not registered as sold by the retailer and hence could not be redeemed at CricketWireless by any means and Cricket customer service could not help other than correctly diagnose the issue. Had to contact BestBuy customer service and got transferred to Mobile Department after explaining the issue. The person was very helpful, had to re-activate the card for it to work.
