One of the things you want to rid yourself of are the annoying 2-year contract cell phone plans. Consumers are finding more cons than pros with those long-term contracts. Initially the monthly fee advertised is low and quite attractive, but if you add up the cost over the terms of the plan you will find that you paid far more had you purchased the phone. Most people become bored with their phones and with technology changing so rapidly we want the latest gadget on the market before the contract expires.
Changing phones before your contract ends is virtually impossible, without a hefty penalty charge. That is when they remind you about the pesky fine print in your contract. The cost on your monthly bill is always significantly higher than the amount you were quoted in the store. So, why is that? Today’s smart mobile users have options with the newly re-branded Cricket Wireless, a no-contract mobile provider.
Cricket Wireless is a national, mobile provider offering network quality, value priced, no annual contracts with great service. In the past, people have often avoided the no-contract mobile providers because of its low-quality, poor customer service and limited coverage. Cricket Wireless is changing all of that.
One of the most appealing factors in getting people to switch to Cricket Wireless is their easy to understand, all inclusive taxes and fees plans. If you are thinking of switching plans, here is what you need to know about Cricket Wireless.

Jennifer Van Buskirk, President of Cricket Wireless stated “We kept the Cricket brand name, but one thing is certain, we are stepping up our game. We are giving no-contract consumers the value they have been waiting for.” “Now new Cricket customers can enjoy great prices, popular phones, loyalty rewards, and friendly service on a reliable nationwide 4G LTE network. The new Cricket has more 4G LTE coverage than Sprint, T-Mobile, and Metro PCS, period.”

Cricket offers a great variety of new and popular phones from Samsung, Nokia, ZTE, Motorola and more. For a limited time, new Cricket customers can receive $50 off most Smartphones after a mail-in-rebate Cricket Visa® Promotion Card. For customers selecting a $49.99 Smartphone, the mail-in rebate means they can get a free phone after the mail-in rebate to experience the benefits of the new Cricket.
To thank customers on Smart and Pro service plans for their loyalty, after 12 months of on-time payments Cricket provides customers with a $50 credit every year toward any new phone purchase.
Cricket Wireless has nearly 3,000 newly redesigned and re-branded retail stores open and ready to greet customers in their neighborhoods, with more on the way. The retail stores have been designed with a bright and inviting look for an easy shopping experience, with today’s wireless customer in mind.
“We invite anyone looking for reliability, simplicity, and more value in no-annual-contract wireless to sign up today,” added Van Buskirk. “Come visit our new stores or www.cricketwireless.com to find out why Cricket is something to smile about.”
I often ask why I am paying so much for a service when there are competitors offering the same quality of service at half the price.
I plan to make the switch! How about you?
