    Hi,

    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.

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