Cricket Wireless is a service provider known as an MVNO or mobile virtual network operator that provides the same coverage as the top phone networks, in this case AT&T, but at a lower cost. Many people choose Cricket Wireless plans for the freedom and control it gives them. If you want to change the details on your Cricket plan at any time, you can. Easily, and without penalty. If you choose one of the prepaid, unlimited talk and text plans for your Cricket smartphone, you don't have to hassle with a contract, and you're not locked into multiyear plan limits. You're free to talk whenever you want, for however long you want. In fact, if you want to slip on your Bluetooth headset and talk all night long, you can. If you use up your high-speed data access, you can continue to consume data at no extra charge, but at lower access speeds until the next billing cycle, or until you go online and purchase more high-speed data. You can set up auto payments if you like, or get a Cricket refill card to add value to your prepaid account balance at any time. (You can also give one as a gift.)
Protecting Your Cricket Phone
Once you get your new Cricket phone, you'll want to keep it looking like new with a case. Check out the huge selection of cell phone cases available at Best Buy. Whether you select a designer case or one that's more functionally shock-absorbent, you'll find the style that best suits you. You might also want to consider getting a screen protector to safeguard your phone's screen against scratches, scrapes and dust, or to reduce glare, or enhance privacy. To keep your Cricket Wireless phone looking and working like new, you might want to get a Geek Squad phone replacement plan so you're covered in the event of any unexpected mishaps that might occur.
