Cricket Offering Bill Credits to Switchers
Cricket Wireless recently unveiled an offer meant to lure in customers of competing carriers. Through July 14, Cricket will reward consumers who port in their number with $50 in bill credits. Moreover, consumers who also bring their own device will receive an additional $35 in bill credits. Cricket says people who switch to Cricket will need to sign up for a service plan costing at least $40 per month and make two monthly payments before they are eligible to receive the bill credits. There is a small catch. Cricket is charging a $25 activation fee, as well as a $10 SIM card kit fee for those who bring their own device. The offer is available at Cricket retail stores as well as through Cricket's web site.

Cricket is awful
So I make an order, and straight talk said they werent releasing the number. I call cricket to get the preauth off my bank so I can make a new order with a different number as they have this deal right now, so I can get the phone for 99c. They tell me that they dont have a billing department and it took me two hours to get to the warranty dept. Which laughed at me, and sent me to the billing department that DID exist.
