I just want to say here and everywhere that I can post. Cricket has horrible customer service. I’ve had my iPhone for a month, and I just got transferred to Arkansas with my job, my phone has no service here so I called you guys for help. Well that was a joke, no help at all, except to tell me that I could continue to pay my bill for 5 more months with no service and then they would release my phone, I mean really, who would be stupid enough to do that? I am only going to be here for a few months, and was going to switch back when I moved back. Anyway, we are going to be done with your no help at all company. This iPhone will make a good paper weight I guess. Thanks a lot.
Joe I'm sorry to hear that you had issues with Cricket. All cell phone companies lock phone to their service when they are activated no matter who you go through Cricket is the only company that only locks it down for 6 months where all other cell phone companies lock them for a year before you can switch to another network. On behalf of Cricket I'm sorry you had a bad experience.
thank you so much cricket for not having 24 hour support. thank you so much for only having an address in california to address my concerns to. thank you so much cricket for after 6 years of service, failing me so greatly. thank you so much for my last month of service with you, although, i think you know i can find comparable service and probably even cheaper. you have no idea what problems this one night has caused for me. to show my bill as owing nothing, but still service is suspended. I have no ability to contact family. i have no ability to let anyone know she has passed. i have no ability to contact her family. i had to borrow a strangers phone, and as the number was unrecognized at 2am... no one answered. thanks again. i will enjoy our last 30 days together as i scope out new providers.

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.
