  • New Cricket Wireless Plans / AIO Wireless Plans

    Here's the first information that I've obtained about the upcoming plan changes for the new Cricket Wireless. As details about visual voicemail and other features pop up, I'll include them in this post.



    With this much known, what are your thoughts?

      I have enjoyed 10 GB and tethering when necessary for work even though I have never used the whole 10 it was nice knowing I had plenty. I will have to wait & see. The ATT&T sucks/is great ratio is running about 3 to 1 among my personal acquaintances

      i dont see any changes from the current cricket prices. i hope we keep our discounts besides auto billpay... such as the lifeline and $5 for each additional line... we have three lines and pay $112.98 per month

      What AT&T's Rumored Sale of Muve Music Would Mean For Cricket Customers | Prepaid Phone News
      Looks like there may be some changes, or loss, to Muve Music.

      I don't like muve music as the bit rate sucks so bad a deaf person can hear the difference and to locate a call back tone
      Out of the top twenty is so hard it's not worth it

      Less for more.... I currently have the 50 a month plan with 5 gigs and now I gotta pay another $10 to keep it when I move over to the GSM Network. No surprise there...

      yea, we will sorely miss lifeline and tethering (mobile hotspot) but there may be hope in the future if AT&T plans to become more competitive.

      "Beats is positioned as a premium product that AT&T sells to postpaid family plan users at a subsidized price of $15/month for up to five lines"
      muve was always positioned as a pay for service. it's easy to use and some customers really liked it. i wish i could say for sure what will happen. still do think muve will be sold or killed. as an alternative to muve there are a million streaming services, i use youtube downloader like offliberty.com for most of the new music i get.

      Muve quality of music is so bad I refuse to use it. The bit rate is so bad I would not even want the leader of North Korea to listen to it as it would be a war crime

      I have some info to share. All Aio store should be the New Cricket by this Sunday.
      All Phone 4S and up should be able to get a sim card installed. Sims card is $10 Transferring your number should be free. Same prices as Cricket has now. $40, $50, $60 Plans. If you get the new service it will be about $77 for your first payment ($50 plan with sim card $10 and activation fee $15 with tax). You'll be paying for the first month bill basically. According to Cricket all of their iPhones should be unlocked. So they'll just need your IMEI to check if it works with the service. You can check it now on the Aio website. iPhones 5, 5S and 5C will have 4G and LTE service. Up to 8 Mbps on LTE and 4 Mbps on 4G. They'll go through the process of transferring your number and if you have a iPhone 5, 5S, or 5C, they will install a aio/cricket nano sim. Very simple process should take about 30-45 mins. Also it is recommended by the employees to do the transfer by your next bill. So you won't be double charged.

      Here is the new cricket logo.

      I thought the new logo was the 60's peace sign in the leaked ad

      What does that mean? Double charged for what? My daughter has a Cricket iPhone 5s. When are they starting the transitions of the iPhones?

      Like say you just paid your bill, and getting your new cricket service is a whole new bill. Basically it's if you have two phone bills. But the employee said you can get a refund if that happens. They are doing the iPhones as of now, at Aio stores but not officially till Sunday. The way it's setup is as if your doing the BYOD to Aio wireless.

      no phones will transition by itself. you will have to go to a store to migrate your device to the GSM network. when you migrate your services over to the GSM you will have to pay 1 month up front just like before. if you just payed your cdma bill, you will get a full pro-rated credit toward your next GSM bill, but you will still have to pay for first month on the GSM service up front. so you will NOT BE DOUBLE CHARGED and will get a credit for all the days you have left. we will just recommend to switch over to GSM the day your bill is due or after to not have to worry about pro-rates and stuff.

      My Aio Phone now has Cricket name on the pull down bar as of midnight today.

      Also if you go to Aio Wireless website it now takes you to cricket website.

      correct, except you will pay for the first month of GSM service. we are now hearing they will take the credit for the days you did not use on your CDMA service and apply it to the initial GSM payment. it should look something like this:

      cost to switch today = phone + first month on GSM - pro-rate for days left on CDMA

      I will update this if it changes

      Here is my problem, I bought an S4 a few months ago and I didn't know that this was going to happen. I am angered because I bought this for nothing from what I am hearing. Is this true? I will have to buy another phone again?

      Also am I the only one who noticed that the throttled data speeds got even more slower?

      You can use the CDMA phone until AT&T shuts down the CDMA network which can be between a year and 18 months or sponer

      The nature of the buisness is to keep offering newer phones with newer wizbang abilities and newer operating systems. We all drool over the "newest phones" and the marketing wizards push our thoughts about running out to buy them. A year from now you'll be wanting that new shiny GSM Samsung S8.

      I plan on keeping my S3 and use it as an emergency or backup WIFI only phone with skype and text. It wont cost me a dime to use it that way.

      I have a very nice note 2 I use, my wife uses a brand new s3 and I have my old s3 I use as a mp3 player. I am going to wait a little to see what kind of trade in offers they come up with.
