Cricket Wireless today announced a new option for consumers, who can now buy a Bring Your Own Device Universal SIM Card Activation Kit from Amazon.com for $9.99. The kit includes a nano SIM card with micro and mini tray adaptors so the card can be used with a wide variety of devices. The kit provides all the information customers will need to self-activate a service plan (via the web or via phone) with Cricket Wireless. Consumers will need to supply their own unlocked GSM handset, but Cricket will waive activation fees. Service plans start at $40 a month, but customers can earn a $5 deduction if they set up auto-pay with their account. Cricket eventually expects to offer its mobile devices via Amazon, too. Cricket is owned and operated by AT&T.

why 2 prepaid from att ?

"Cricket is owned and operated by AT&T"

isnt GoPhone from ATT too?
Cricket is owned by at&t, but Cricket is not a division of at&t. Cricket is run as a completely separate company, with its own CEO and board of directors.

Plans start at $25/month not $40....

The $25 plan has no data at all though. You can still activate it yourself and use it in a smartphone, and then only have data access via wifi.
True, and a lot of people like that plan because it is the only way left for people to have a smartphone but not pay for a data plan.
