I know I will need to upgrade my plan to the $55.00 Android plan but How do I activate the new phone when I receive it in a couple days and still keep my phone number. Any help would be appreciated,
Hi, welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new phone! I think you'll like it. When you get your phone, it should have a quick start guide that will tell you how to activate it over the phone. Cricket customer service should be able to walk you through how to keep your number. Of course, you could always just take it to a Cricket store and let them do it, but they'll charge you $15.
