It's LAME that you don't total up each month's data usage, and make that available for us to see!
Instead, you show EACH DAY'S DATA USAGE for up to a month at a time.
This applies both to computer access and the myCricket app via a phone!
So, if we want to see what we're using a month, we are forced to manually total it ourselves?
Could it be that you fear that we might realize we don't need the data amount we are already paying for, and therefore would switch to a lesser (cheaper) plan?

Failing to report monthly data usage appears to be an attempt by Cricket to obfuscate that information. This is further supported by the inclusion of MB with each data point, which complicates totaling in a spreadsheet.
This is just the kind of apparent manipulation that will cause me to switch providers. Shame on Cricket!
You can see the running total for the current month ONLY, in "Usage Summary" at top.
This is semi-helpful, but only towards the end of the current month...
PROBLEM: You CANNOT see the total for any previous month!
Just try it.
1. Go to your Usage tab.
2. Under Usage History, select a previous month, for example (1/01/19 - 1/31/19)
3. Note that Usage Summary at the top does NOT update. Instead, you see only the usage for only the first 10 days of the selected month. Clicking "View More Data" only adds 10 more daily usage amounts. There is no total for that month. Often you can't even see the last days of that particular month! In this case 1/29 - 1/31 for 2019!
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.
