Cricket Wireless Now Offering Lower Priced iPhone Packages
Cricket Wireless is trying to make some noise in the changing wireless industry. The prepaid carrier is revamping their no-contract plans to better compete with T-Mobile USA, and other carriers. The Leap Wireless unit is now offering a family bundle that includes two smartphones for $40 per month. Individual plans begin at $50 per month. This includes unlimited calling and text messages, plus 1GB of full speed data. For $60, users receive 2.5 GB of data; for $70, the monthly data limit rises to 5GB. Previous Cricket iPhone plans started at $55 per month. In 2012, Cricket became the first company to offer an iPhone prepaid plan in the U.S. Boost Mobile soon followed later in the year. This month, T-Mobile began offering the iPhone 5 without a contract.
