Samsung Galaxy S4 Coming To Cricket On June 7


If you’re buying a Galaxy S4, then you’re almost spoiled for choice when it comes to deciding which carrier you wish to sign up with, because all four of the big names in the United States are offering the device. But that’s not the case if you want the handset prepaid — at least not yet.

Next month, however, you’ll be able to purchase the Galaxy S4 on Cricket from $55 down.

The contract-free carrier today announced that it will be carrying Samsung’s latest flagship from June 7, and customers will pay just $55 upfront to start their installment plan, which will then cost as little as $45 per month.

This is a great alternative for would-be Galaxy S4 owners who do not want a two-year contract but cannot or do not want to pay the handset’s full $600 price tag in one go. However, you’ll need to live in one of Cricket’s LTE coverage areas to pick up the device.

Those areas include Las Vegas, Tucson, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Laredo, Corpus Christi, and the Brownsville-McAllen-Harlingen market, Texas.

“The Galaxy S4 redefines the smartphone and we are very proud to offer our customers the highest level of wireless technology on the market,” said Matt Stoiber, senior vice president of devices for Cricket. “Cricket’s three smartphone rate plans start as low as $45 per month1 and give customers value-packed choices for the plan that’s right for them with unlimited music included.”
