Cricket Wireless Adds Data to $40 and $60 Plans Without a Price Hike

Cricket is giving more data to two of its most popular plans today, yet isn’t adjusting the price. That means more data without paying a dime extra. Cool, right?

You’ll see Cricket’s new plans in the image below, but the two changes target the $40 and $60 plans. The $40 plan now comes with 3GB of data per month instead of 2.5GB, while the $60 plan jumps to 12GB (from 10GB). Also, back in October, Cricket supposedly temporarily upped their $50 plan from 5GB per month to 8GB, but has now locked that in permanently.  (more…)

Cricket Adds $30 1GB Plan to Lineup

Cricket expanded its prepaid data plan lineup today by adding on a $30 1GB per month option. This new plan will debut on September 9 (tomorrow) alongside their $70, $60, $50, and $40 plans.

The $30 plan includes unlimited talk and text with its 1GB of data. With that in mind, I don’t know why anyone would consider this plan unless they are firmly capped at $30 per month for wireless. Because if you buy the $40 plan with 2.5GB of data and sign-up for autopay, you are only paying $35 per month, since Cricket gives you a $5 autopay discount.  (more…)
