Mark your calendar for October 25, 2013 if you're interested in picking up an Apple iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C from Cricket Wireless.
This time the iPhone will probably have LTE AWS support. In short, this means if you live in a Cricket LTE area, you'll have service. With their roaming agreement, you should even have LTE in non Cricket markets where Sprint has LTE service.

Well this isn't a Cricket Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or even a CDMA Note 3, but in general this is what you will receive if your purchase one.
Can we hope that this will come to Cricket? Sure... However, remember that there were strong rumors of the Note 2 coming and that never happened. This is an expensive device. Unless you're financing it, most people won't want to fork up $700+.
As time goes by, I'm sure someone will flash a CDMA variant to Cricket. Please chime in if you have a Sprint / ...byPublished on 10-01-2013 07:43 AM
This is not a huge update, but it does add a feature, change a roaming icon, and fix a Google Play Store issue.
Check out the video for more details.

Financing is a great option for many people. Unfortunately for one reason or another there are those who won't qualify. At least from 9/27 until 11/27 you could qualify for a mail in rebate with Cricket Wireless.
Basically just apply for financing, and if you are denied you could get a mail in rebate between $25 and $50. The amount depends on the number of continuous service days you've had with Cricket. If you're a new or existing customer under a year of service, you'd get $25. Greater than a year, ...byPublished on 09-22-2013 09:00 PM
So it has been brought to my attention by another news site that the iPhone 5S and 5C fully support AWS LTE bands. What this means is that your Cricket Wireless iPhone 5s and 5C would have LTE.
*These statements are my best guess after evaluating all information I have been provided up to this point. ...byPublished on 09-19-2013 10:11 PM
The important part of this story is that Republic uses Sprint's network when not connected to WiFi. If you don't know anything about Republic, they try to use VOIP as much as possible to keep cellular plans down in the cost department. This means they use CDMA phones.
If you can get a diag port open, perhaps you can flash it to Cricket if Republic isn't offering something you like.
Ready, set, chime in. ...byPublished on 09-18-2013 09:24 PM
Power Banks from RavPower are starting to remind me of Swiss Army Knives. I recently reviewed one that acted as a hot spot, providing charging, and could allow devices to read SDCards and portable hard drives. The product in this article substitutes out those features for a huge capacity (14000 mAh) and a flashlight. It has two ports. One good enough to charge most cell phones and another that is good enough to charge most tablets.
Pick it up on Amazon for $42.99: http://bit.ly/18acfhG ...byPublished on 09-15-2013 10:19 PM
Starting today, Cricket Wireless should be offering additional LTE roaming coverage for devices which support Sprint's LTE network. Currently only the Samsung Admire 2 and Galaxy S4 meet this requirement.
So what does this actually mean? Please read closely to fully understand what benefits you will receive.
How to qualify:
byPublished on 09-11-2013 07:38 PM
- Must own a capable device
- Must be a customer on a 4G LTE rate plan
- No home market roaming (if you are in a Cricket 4G area, you will only connect to Cricket 4G towers)
- Only available when traveling outside
So you might have seen a lot of articles pop up in the last few hours talking about the Motorola Moto X coming to Cricket Wireless. This is based on a leaked picture of dummy phones which was passed on to the site phandroid.com.
Could this be some evil prank done to get attention? Sure, it definitely can be. Would I personally be glad to see this device come to Cricket? Sure. Cricket has not had a good cell phone from Motorola for as long as I can remember. Have they ever had a Motorola phone in general? While chiming in that Cricket ...
