    Got a spam call 30 minutes after activation! :(

    Brand new phone, brand new number from Cricket. Yes, it was easy to set up, but I started getting spam calls within just 30 minutes! Now I am getting 6 or more a day. I never got that many with my old number with Verizon. :( Price is right, and so far no coverage/service problems, but is the spam worth it? Thinking not. :( There needs to be a Not Sure option in this survey/review under the "Recommend this to a friend" section.

    A rocky start

    A very problematic activation process. Had to take SIM back to store and have store associate contact Cricket directly. Leading up to this, other customer service calls were inconsistent, which each new call center person giving different information. Porting number will take 3 days, which seems ridiculous (still waiting). We'll see how this goes. Will probably not stay with Cricket when my month is up.

    I bought this while on sale and took advantage of the free shipping as a Best Buy member. Of course the card they sent was not activated and so I had to call customer service. Not a big deal, but 10-15 min out of the day and the second time this has happened with Best Buy. Might be better idea to pick up in store to make sure it is activated.

    Buy only on a deal. You get double taxed!

    I bought this due to a promotion, but even then the value is just decent. When you buy this, you will pay multiple taxes at the store, like Tax, E911, other tax, etc. All the same stuff you get on your cellular bill. Then, cricket also charges you taxes on your payment. Yes, those same taxes. Essentially, you are double paying for sales tax, E911 tax, other taxes, etc. I don't recommend buying this unless you have a deep discount.

    I bought a fone at Best buy and I didn't have to go far to purchase the phone time. Cricket wireless is my favorite carrier because I get to choose my plan without having the hassle of being approved for a contract . Best buy is by far my favorite home store. Where I can find everything I need . Electronics and appliances

    Took points off the review as Best Buy doesn't offer Email Delivery on this product -to be fair it may be a condition of the original vendor to only sell their physical product. The card itself is wonderful. Keeps me in budget and gives me up to 2.5gb of data each month at that $40/month plan which I am lucky if I use HALF during a month, otherwise I use WIFI

    I'm not to pleased with Best Buy in a whole they are making it more and more difficult to purchase the right product for the right rook basically. They all keep sitting around and ignoring you to you say something. So again I left with the wrong SIM card and prepaid card another 100 wasted

    I have cricket wireless and purchased this refill card to save a little money. I was initially charged the full price but after a few emails the problem was resolved. 5 stars for the card, it worked just fine. But 1 star for the hassle of being overcharged and inconvenience.

    The biggest problem I had was picking my purchase up and the system was not recognizing the sale price standing in line for 30mins waiting for them to fix it beware check your bank statements they over charge my card twice

    This small plan, with no contract and 2gs unlimited talk, text is good for someone who isn’t on the phone as much and using it just for emergencies, or minimal communication.

    I wish I would have knew more about the payment options. I was late on a payment and almost charged $5 extra. I don't always have money when the refill card expires so that makes it difficult.

    Not much you can say about the item itself. It is self explanatory. It is a refill card for prepaid phones that ONLY works for Cricket Wireless service.

    Over all it’s good when we buy in a offer with combo , still the tax kills the offer . Better B.B. can offer digital card instead physical card with tax

    When I bought the card it says data, voice and text unlimited. when I called to activate it, if you want data you have to pay more money!
