As with many smaller service providers, Cricket doesn’t have the largest reach, but if you happen to live within the provider’s coverage area, you’ll likely find some competitively priced phone packages. None of Cricket’s four plans feature caps on voice or data, but mobile web starts at $45. Android-based smart phones and BlackBerry phones have exclusive packages at $55 and $60, respectively, but Cricket offers similar unlimited plans on voice and data. Cricket’s mobile broadband plans do have service caps, but they’re still within the same price range as their phone plans.
Smart Phone Data: Unlimited voice and data plans start at $45; Android phones: $55 monthly, BlackBerry: $60 monthly
Mobile Broadband: 2.5GB/$40; 5GB/$50; 7.5GB/$60 monthly
Top Phone: Samsung Messager Touch ($89.99)
