You know that image of a wacky, wild-haired mad scientist? That’s pretty much my dad but he’s also a master baker whose experiments happen in the kitchen. His latest invention has real business potential. It’s called a “Kombucha Cake” and it’s a great tasting ball of energy that powers athletes through to the finish line. Here’s where I need your help – Dad’s better at baking than business. His product’s becoming a hit at races but Dad can’t keep up. He’s using his smartphone to take orders, capture contacts, and post on social media. A tablet would be so much faster and when mom and I are helping him we want to use laptops so we need a hotspot with plenty of data.
How can Cricket help my dad make his little business a big winner?
Dear Kombucha Kid,
Boom! That’s the sound of your pop’s sweet little business exploding into the big time AND have I got an idea to help him succeed! Cricket just launched data-only rate plans called Simply Data. The 30GB, 10GB and 3GB Simply Data plans* are designed for people like your dad who are doing some serious work on a tablet, laptop, or Smartphone when they’re on the go. If you ever run out of data, you can always add more (add 2GB for $5 or 5GB for $10). It’s also great for streaming in HD** and, if you’re using the Cricket Turbo Hotspot, you can connect up to 15 devices.
I can hear you thinking that this sounds expensive but think again, because Simply Data is simply competitive. Check out Cricket’s Simply Data rate plans and see how they can help give your dad the edge he needs.
*No data access after monthly purchase is used.
**Stream in HD with Stream More turned off.

Cell Phones, Plans and Service from Cricket
Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
Any surprise taxes or fees (which can really add up) - With Cricket, taxes are included in your bill, so you know exactly what to expect. For a list of our current fees, view our Charges & Fees page.
2. Decide how satisfied you are with your current cell phone
"Bring Your Own Phone" BYOP - If you want to keep your phone, bring it to Cricket - just make sure it's unlocked and compatible with our network.
Get a brand new smartphone - Had your eye on one of the hottest new phones? Just need an inexpensive device that does the job? We've got a variety of prepaid smartphones, many with great incentives when you switch to Cricket.
3. Consider any issues you've faced with service you had in the past
