    My mom has a flashed ally on the 35 dollar plan. She can do everything BUT send and receive pic messages. This is not something I have looked into, it may be due to the fact she has a super old plan.

    Its possible. Cricket WANTS it on the 55, but it's not a requirement.

    With the changes they implemented recently it is either not possible or extremely difficult..

    Remember we could put used Ascends on Paygo?? Try it now and it WILL NOT let you.. This also scraps the plans those other guys had for getting muve on flashed phones.. The new system is extremely strict.

    Pretty stupid too. A new line at $35 or no line at all...not rocket science.

    Turns out now as 154 stated above that it is near impossible to get ANY android phone on anything other than the 55 plan. Lame I think, but thats their choice.

    Well, if somebody put it on the $35 plan, and then paid $5 for the web add-on, they'd be paying $40/month for unlimited talk text and web on an Android phone, right? That might be why Cricket stopped that.

    You did make a good point. $35 is better than nothing. Some people don't care about the web capabilities on an Android phone. They might just like the layout of it, and want talk and text. It's too bad Cricket won't allow them to do that.

    At least there is the Samsung Chrous now. It has the Android layout, but is a feature phone. It is a Muve Music phone, but I'm not sure if Muve Music will be required. Do you know, Woof?

    No Muve is required on any Muve capable phone. The feature phones like the Chorus (which looks real nice IMO) can be on the 35 or 45 plan as well as the 55 Muve plan. Same rule applies to the Muve Androids.

    Alright, thank you.

    So, for somebody that prefers the Android layout, they can get the Samsung Chrono and just use the $35 plan for talk and text. I think that's great.

    I had my Lg Optimus on the on the 35$ plan a couple of weeks ago. I had an old flip phone (dumb phone ) before on that plan. and I just called cricket's 1800 number after dark, got a nice girl (not from here) on the line and just did an ESN change. She didn't ask anymore questions.

    EVO 4G Cricket



    I just don't get cricket some days.

    I was told "you can use any cricket or cricket flashed phone on paygo"
    Then I was told that "android are not allowed on paygo"
    Then final told "you can use any non Android cricket phone or any flashed phone on paygo but if it is an Android that the data/mms will not work so it is allowed"
    Was then told "any Android cricket or flashed on regular monthly plans must be on the $55 Android plan"

    Moral of the story if you want an Android on the cheap with cricket get a dumb rep on the phone and get lucky they put the phone on you're cheap plan or use a flashed one on the paygo setup then proxy tunnel after its setup
