Cricket Wireless is just 9 days away from bringing consumers the latest flagship device from Samsung. This morning they have announced that they will be launching the Samsung Galaxy S6 on April 24th with a full retail price tag of $649.99. However, Cricket also now offers a Phone Payment Plan that lets customers get the device for $19.99 down with approved credit, or $49.99 down without.
“The Samsung Galaxy S 6 is a must-have device for smartphone lovers, and consumers are beginning to shop for a great deal. That’s where we come in,” said Andy Smoak, head of devices for Cricket Wireless. “Cricket’s low monthly rate plans combined with our new Phone Payment Plans make the latest premium devices like the Samsung S 6 easier to get. Add in the fact that Cricket has more 4G LTE coverage nationwide than T-Mobile, Metro-PCS, Sprint or Boost, and it makes Cricket a great choice for smart consumers.”
Pre-paid services often kept the higher priced flagship off their shelves in the past. The last few years though, has seen a change to that. While you will still find some of the more “off” type of devices like the ZTE Prelude 2 or Galaxy Grand Prime, Cricket has been keen to put the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5 and now the Galaxy S6 in the hands of those who can’t, or don’t want to, be on the big 4 networks. Now that they are offering phone payment plans too, things might just heat up a bit more.
