Cricket Wireless is hoping to bring 10 new devices to the market before the end of the year, with seven of them being smartphones. Cricket representative Matthew Stoiber said the company will have a "good, better, best" range of smartphones available to its pre-paid customers. The entry-level devices will be priced in the $149 - $249 range; mid-range devices will land under $300; and its high-end devices will have price tags exceeding $300. The company already has devices that fall into the first two categories, but has yet to announce or launch any high-end devices. Smartphone subscribers represent half of Cricket's customer base.

All you should hear is cricket's chirping with their ridiculous data allotment

Cricket is a joke! 1GB of data maximum! Who needs a smartphone with that ridiculous amount of data? Why do you need to have a fancy smartphone to barely have enough to check emails? They should stick to feature phones only. Boost, Virgin, StraightTalk, Net10, Simple Mobile, T-Mobile, MetroPCS Verizon and ATTs prepaid unlimited everything featurephone-only plans for $50 are better. I can't think of a worse deal than Cricket. Can't fathom how 6 million uninformed people stay with them?
I only get 250- 300mb with ATT so I mainly use my phone for data on Wifi at home.
The entire country is uninformed!!! We have a liberal loone for a President. Whose policies have not brought about prosperity. So much for "hope & change" there's your uninformed for you!

So good luck with this informed stuff.
Average Android user uses under 700 MB of data a month.
