Cricket's New 'Breeze-Thru' Activation Process Gets You Online Faster
Cricket Wireless today said customers will no longer need to call customer service or find wifi to activate a new device. The Cricket Breeze-Thru service makes it possible for new customers to activate their handsets directly from the phone itself. Cricket sends new customers a text message with a web link that takes them to an online setup site. The connection is made via Cricket's 4G LTE network, meaning it is available pretty much wherever the new customer happens to be. In order to use Breeze-Thru activation, customers will need a universal SIM card kit, compatible unlocked phone, a copy of their current wireless bill (if porting in a number), and a debit/credit or Cricket Refill Card for the first month's service. Cricket says the setup process requires but a few steps and should get people online within a few minutes. Cricket's universal SIM cards are available at nationwide retailers such as Amazon, Target, and Walmart.
