I have been with cricket for over 4 years. It absolutely pi$$es me off to no end that a new customer only pays $274 for a new s9 and me, a loyal customer, gets charged $549 for the same phone!!!! And gets charged a $25 activation fee for it also. Cricket executives must just be raking in the $$$ over this petty kind of nonsense. Cricket DOES NOT CARE ABOUT LOYALTY!!!! I'll be shopping elsewhere to a provider that will recognize a loyal dollar when they see one!
Hey @tbrown34281! Cricket definitely cares about their loyal customers. That's why we get the best value on rate plans and great service! I've been with Cricket for 3 years and they've been nothing but good to me. If you really think about it, we got the same "new customer" offers when we first joined. Even if you switch, you're going to go to another carrier that will give you a deal on a phone, probably less reliable service, and then 4 years later, you will feel the same way. Might as well stick with reliable service and the best value!
@ RiseUp11 You are either a troll or a Cricket Emoployee. I did not get a discount when I joined Cricket many moons ago. They didn't offer phones at a reduced rate. Their biggest selling point was no contract. Which is the only reason I am still with them. I do not buy my phones from tem because they are more expensive than Verizon. So you need to troll yourself on down the road or back to your desk.
