  • Cricket Wireless Admire 2 for $49.99 and Discover for $19.99

    Cricket Wireless is offering these devices at ultra low rebates after INSTANT rebate. It is my believe that these prices are only available online and in certain areas from feedback I've received from others. If they are in your area, take advantage of it if you can, if you need a new phone.

      It'd be awesome to get an admire 2...but when I put my zipcode in (even on sunday when it was first released) it doesn't show up in my available options of phones...are these discounts online only or are they also in store?

      The instant rebates are only available online to my knowledge. I will try to stop by a local store and verify. At the time of posting this, I was chatting with a dealer, and they said they couldn't see these discounts @ mycricket.com either.

      lol...if they are not available in my area...what are the chances of ordering an admire 2 from a store in some other city? know if that works? I mean I know my phone works in other areas...but I got kind of confused when someone told me they bought a phone that they don't have available at the stores in my area or online when i punch in my zipcode...but still not 100% sure on buying a new phone till after we find out if the government will accept the buyout and if they do if there's bad or good

      If you could get someone to ship this to their home in an area where it is available at that cost, you should have no issues getting it on your account.

      Nothing will happen for at least a year. And then hardly anyone knows. If you don't need your next phone to last much longer than a year, I wouldn't be concerned at this point.

      yeah I'm just thinking ahead because if they switch all cricket phones from CDMA to GSM that's where I'm worried...I don't want a $200+ paperweight But I do plan on getting an admire 2 even if I have to find another company...for me it's the perfect size, I don't need a manpurse to carry it around lol...but at least the people on this website know more than the people at the ATT stores...most don't even KNOW that anything has been done...but if nothing happens I'm staying with cricket and The $50 admire 2 is only in select markets...now the question is find out which markets lol...hopefully one is nearby me...got friends I can trust to send me a phone or drop it off to me. But on the mycricket website, if phones are out of stock do they not have them on the website or does that mean that online they are not available in my area?

      I think they're just plain old out of stock now. Went from available to 2-3 days to out of stock. You should still see the listing on the website for it.

      Someone said the release date for it in certain stores was pushed back from last Sunday.

      ahhh ok that makes a lot of sense that if it was pushed back in certain areas then it wouldn't be online in my zipcode...well I'll keep checking the store...I know the discover was released...which that's my absolute last resort that or the kyocera hydro

      Have had it for about 24 hours now. The wife and I both got one as well as my sister. Phone is pretty great and for $50 bucks great bang for the buck, decided to go this route rather than the S4 I wanted due to the merger and what I think is kind of an undecided future (or at least undiscussed future of CDMA phones on a carrier that is primarily GSM at the moment. So rather than chance a larger chunk of change, I went with this little bugger and couldn't be happier with it. (Went from a Huawei Mercury to this just FYI) =) Very responsive compared to the aging Mercury and the 4G in Las Vegas is nice creature comfort.

      *Additional caveat: My wifes activation went off without a hitch over the phone. Mine as well as my sisters was a nightmare, as the CS reps kept telling us that the phone was NOT A CRICKET PHONE and WAS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THEIR NETWORK. This is overcome by escalating the call to the 2nd tier tech support who are able to complete the switch and activation. I would recommend that if anyone run into this issue they immediately request to speak with a supervisor, as this will save you the 45 minutes of frustrating conversation that I had to endure with the foreign mal-informed CS phone reps. Just FYI. =)

      Duudes. I had the Mercury before switching to the Admire 2. I picked it up last Monday in Houston. Before it released there was hardly any internal specs but other than it was running android 4.1 jellybean. It has less space than my Mercury. I have 6 apps which is less than I had on the Mercury and it's already full. I cant even access my images although everything is saved on my memory card. It's a great phone speed and quality wise but the internal memory sucks. I cant wait to root and delete factory apps. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up sorry if it got a little ranty.

      The stores in Visalia CA area received 12 (yes TWELVE) per store and they all sold out. When US Cellular released the Mezmerize 3 years ago, they sold out fast as well and that was when Samsung was an unknown. The stats and size are almost the same as my Mez and I was disappointed to find they were selling the last 3 when I walked in the door. A corp marketing manager said they will be getting more in 1 to 2 weeks and I am in the loop for one for sure.

      FWIW, my 3 year old Mez still works better then the iPhone 4 I have hated for the last 6 weeks.

      Well Apparently Springfield/Eugene, Oregon will not be getting any for a few weeks and to top it off it will be full price of 279.99...I may as well get the One SV for that price...but at the same time I don't qualify for any of the phone buying programs...so for what I can afford...I am stuck with either getting the hydro or the HTC Desire C (that is even better than the galaxy discover specs wise)...either that or I'm going to have to find a new carrier cricket just doesn't like me anymore (

      Thanks for all the feedback and updates everyone. I'm not able to purchase all these phones just for an unboxing so I appreciate your posts.

      You can use any memory card now, it ships with a standard 4GB card. I switched it to my 64GB card and Muve Music works.
