I'm upset because after several hours of shopping online I finally decided I would buy an iPhone XR from you guys. I had my iPhone and accessories and my Wireless plan upgrade plus second line in my cart and now it's all gone. I was going to follow your advice which you advertise that and do the installment being that its a $1,000 purchase. I go to your payment plan app. they decline me. I thought the credit card was just a part of the application. I didn't know they were going to charge me $49 right then or I would have gave them a different card. You know that credit decline it's going to damage is my credit score. you know that? Now I got to do it again. Why don't they say that they going to charge you 49.99 right then. I've been with Crickett for 15 years and I feel totally disrespected. I was going to buy an and iPhone XR and I was adding a second line but now I'm thinking about changing carriers. I don't know yet .I'm really feeling disrespected by your company. I mean in less than 10 minutes you lose a $1,000 deal and possibly losing a loyal customer that's been a client and phone buyer for over 15 years.. I am just in completely in shock about how I was treated . I'm a 54 year-old homeowner highly respected in my community I'm on Social Security 2900.00 a month. my home and vehicles are paid off. I met all criteria that your company asked for, bank account, driver's license, Social Security I have plenty of money to pay for your phone on installments. It wasn't very clear that the credit card was going to be charged right then for the $49 if I would have known that I would have gave them another card they just say your Decline with no explanation cut me off and empty out my cart. Like some no good bum on the street. Bums even get treated better than that. it was rude and I'm insulted.... I might be changing carriers your competitors and switching after 15 years I can't believe it..

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.
