  • Current Cricket Wireless PAYGo Information

    For those of you who haven't noticed, PAYGo has been changing recently.

    PAYGo is available in Cricket markets (where Cricket puts up their own towers), just like it has been, but has been updated with new plans. PAYGo is also available in Sprint markets (areas where Cricket doesn't have service). I'm going to refer to this as the "Cricket PAYGo" and the "Nationwide PAYGo" for now. This is because the "Cricket PAYGo" is for areas where Cricket has their own towers and the "Nationwide PAYGo" is the one available nationwide using Sprint's network. If you think of a better term, let me know.

    First, we'll discuss the "Cricket PAYGo". This is PAYGo that is available in Cricket markets. There are currently two monthly minute plans and two daily plans.

    Please note that all plans include Voicemail, Call-waiting, Caller ID, and 3-way Calling.

    The first is: $25/month for 300 minutes, and unlimited messaging and web.

    The second is: $35/month for 1,000 minutes, and unlimited messaging and web.

    The daily plans are as follows:

    $1/day for unlimited local minutes, unlimited incoming messaging, and unlimited mobile web.

    $2/day for unlimited U.S. minutes, unlimited messaging, unlimited mobile web, 411, and data backup.



    There are currently four phones available for the "Cricket PAYGo". They are the Cricket MSGM8 II, Samsung Stunt, Kyocera Domino, and the Cricket CAPTR II. It doesn't look like you can order online at this time.



    Now we'll discuss the "Nationwide PAYGo". Please keep in mind this is Cricket's service, just using Sprint's network. Therefore, you're going by a different coverage map. If you type in your zip code here it will show you the correct coverage map. There are currently two monthly minute plans. There aren't any daily plans available at this time.

    The first is: $25/month for 300 minutes, and unlimited messaging and web.

    The second is: $35/month for 1,000 minutes, and unlimited messaging and web.



    There is currently one phone available for the "Nationwide PAYGo". It is the Huawei Pillar. It looks like you can order online.




    If you see anything that should be changed or have anything to add please feel free to reply to this thread.

      I actually think this is a good move. There are many people that don't need unlimited, and therefore don't want to pay for it. It's true, Cricket's service has been based off of unlimited, but in order to continue to compete with other providers they needed to start offering minute plans. There should be more coming, even with Muve Music, and Android. I believe it's $45/month for 1,000 minutes on the Muve Music feature phone and $55/month for 1,000 minutes on the Muve Music smartphone.

      From what I've seen in the past, Cricket usually grandfathered people with their plans. What confused me, was when Cricket changed the broadband plans. They raised the rates by $5 per month in order to provide nationwide coverage. Even those who didn't want the nationwide coverage had to pay the additional $5 per month. I don't think that's right. Maybe it's just that voice plans are grandfathered in but broadband plans aren't. I'm not sure. You've been able to keep your $35 plan so far, so I don't think it's going to go away anytime soon.
