Cricket 4G LTE

Cricket might not be the biggest carrier in the United States, but it has become a rather popular regional choice for those that want contract-free service with no credit check. What it doesn’t offer is 4G LTE service, at least not outside of the Tucson metro area. Luckily, this is all starting to change. Next week, one unidentified city will be added to the Cricket 4G LTE service area.

ZTE V8000-2

Up-and-coming prepaid carrier Cricket Wireless seems to really be on a roll. On top the launch of Cricket-powered RadioShack Wireless last week, Cricket has also launched its own version of the HTC One V, which has now become the most powerful Android smartphone in its portfolio. That doesn’t seem to be enough for Cricket though, and another enticing Android mid-ranger is heading to the nation’s eighth largest carrier. We first spotted the ZTE Nova 4.0 V8000 back in May at the CTIA, and, just as we suspected, this will be a Cricket exclusive phone.


Wish that Cricket offered Muve Music with all of its Android smartphone plans? Wish granted. Today Cricket has announced that it is offering unlimited text, picture and video mesaging, mobile web and a large catalog of great music all starting at just $50.

For $50 you will get 1GB of data, $60 for 2.5GB, and $70 for 5GB, but no matter the plan you choose, Cricket has you covered with all-you-can-download access to its Muve music.
