Short on Cash? Cricket Rolls Out $15-Per-Month Mobile Plan

The world of wireless carriers is a competitive one, and with T-Mobile and its newly acquired MVNO promising perks for Mint Mobile customers, AT&T’s Cricket Wireless has a deal of its own: a $15 per-month unlimited plan.

For $15, you get 30 days of unlimited talk and text in Canada, Mexico, and the US with 1GB of high-speed data. The offer is available to new and existing subscribers in Cricket stores and online.

It joins Cricket’s two other fixed data plans: $30/month for 5GB and $40/month for 10GB. When you go beyond your data cap, speeds are limited to 128Kbps. None of these plans allow for hotspot data and tethering could lead to slowed-down data speeds or service termination.

As an online-only promotion for new customers, Cricket is offering a three-month plan that includes unlimited talk, text, and data for $75. That works out to $25 per month, though you have to pay the total upfront, bring your own device, and set up a new single line.

After that three-month promo ends, Cricket offers a three-month Unlimited Plan for $120 ($40/month) and a 12-month Unlimited Plan for $300 ($25/month). These prices are lower than the multi-month plans Cricket introduced last year, which is always good for the pocketbook. Also note that these unlimited plans do not have hotspot options, though other Cricket plans allow for that ability at a higher cost.

Cricket pre-paid multi-month plans are nonrefundable, so once you pay up you’re locked in. You do have the ability to switch plans, but only during the last month of your multi-month period.
