    Spring into Value with Cricket's New Family Plan

    ~ Money-Saving No-Contract Plan Includes Two Smartphone Lines for $40 per Line per Month and Muve Music

    SAN DIEGO, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cricket is providing added value for families this spring with an affordable family plan to go along with the coolest phones Cricket already offers. The new plan is available now to customers who purchase two or more smartphone rate plans[1] with Cricket's Automatic Bill Pay feature. The new family plan is available in Cricket company-owned stores and select dealers nationwide.

    "The Cricket family plan is half the price of AT&T, and value like that makes this plan a great way for families to save money by spending a lot less on their wireless bill," said Tyler Wallis, senior vice president, product and marketing for Cricket. "Each line includes unlimited minutes, texts, data and unlimited downloads from Muve Music. Cricket is the only carrier in the US to offer Muve Music, one of the leading on-demand digital music services in the country."

    The family plan is available to new and existing Cricket customers and is also available to Cricket Lifeline customers. Customers may choose which Cricket smartphone plans best fit their needs and still get a family plan discount. Each family plan line includes all the stand-alone features of the $50 smartphone rate plan.

    Cricket's all-inclusive smartphone rate plans start at $50 for unlimited talk, text and data (1GB of full-speed) per month. The $60 smartphone plan contains up to 2.5GB of full-speed data per month and the $70 smartphone plan offers up to 5GB of full-speed data per month. The $60 and $70 plans come with Mobile Hot Spot capability so that, customers can attach additional wireless devices to their smartphone. All Cricket smartphone plans include unlimited music with Muve Music featuring unlimited song downloads, ringback tones and ringtones. Each family plan must include Automatic Bill Pay. With Automatic Bill Pay a customer's monthly bill is automatically paid using a designated credit card, debit card, or bank account on file.

    Muve Music

    Muve is available on all Cricket smartphones and is included in the new family plan. With Muve Music from Cricket, customers have millions of songs at their fingertips, will never pay per song and the music service is built in to Cricket's no contract rate plans.
