    Noob here, i want to buy the cricket huawei ascend online, but i have a question that the reps can't answer or i cant understand them.

    I have the cricket $45 plan, i do not see big differences in what the android plan gives me besides $10 more to pay. will everything work on the phone as it should with the $45 plan?
    i have called and talked with them and one said no one said yes, one said maybe. very confusing in all. I was told though that i would be able to keep the same rate plan.
    Anyone that has the phone on the $45 plan that wants to chime in?

    It's an Android and their plan for an Android is $55
    End of story.
    If you want an Android with them then you have to pay $55

    If you go to a full service Cricket store, you can buy three months and get the fourth one free.

    That would be a rate of $41.25 a month for their Android Plan.

    Howdy Noob, you have to pay the 10 bux if you want to be on the data plan needed for a smart phone to be smart! ALL other carriers charge far more than that! You should be able to get the Ascend for $109 on their special running now. If you get it online make sure they give you the free overnight shipping and free activation!!!

    Do you have to go to a store to signup for this? I checked Cricket's website but I couldn't find it.

    I'm on the buy 3 get 1 free plan & went to a corporate CRICKET store.The two non-corporate(franchise) outlets that I approached knew nothing about the discount.Unless it is absolutely inconvenient to do so,I'd skip the on-line option if it is available.If an error occurs w/your acct.,no one on-line will take ownership of any issues you may have.W/a receipt in hand from a retail store,they have no other option but to resolve any billing issues you may have.

    The extra $5 is worth it for 3g.
  10. I have the Cricket Huawei Ascend and I only pay $45 still I didnt have to change to the android plan when I upgraded my phone to the ascend.... I did it all thru the cricket website though and they give u a $20.00 discount also when u buy oline

    If your market and google apps work, then you got lucky and slipped through the cracks somehow.
