moto g

Cricket Wireless has announced special sales deals for many of their Android smartphones from Samsung, ZTE and Motorola as part of their new "back to school" promotion.

The pre-paid wireless carrier subsidiary of AT&T is selling the Motorola Moto G for $49.99, taking into account a $50 new activation discount and a $50 mail in rebate in the form of a Visa card.

Three ZTE phones are also a part of the deal with each getting a $20 new activation discount. The Prelude is priced at $29.99 at Cricket, while the Sonata 4G costs $59.99 and the Overture 4G LTE is priced at $79.99.

Finally, the Samsung Galaxy Express 4G LTE is being sold for $149.99 at Cricket, after a $50 new activation discount and a $50 mail in rebate. What do you think of this new "back to school" sales promotion?

Great, my mom just got some LG phone on Cricket because it was a little cheaper than the Moto G. I'm sure the LG will be just fine for her, but the G is definitely the superior phone.

That depends, does the LG phone have LTE? The Moto G doesn't.

Just to keep you up to speed regarding the moto g..
Motorola have now launched a 4G model of the moto with SD card slot and fully water proof. Oh, and its the same price as its counterpart. Happy days!

My girlfriends moto G took a swim in the toilet I'd say it's pretty waterproof it works fine

AC every day

ScottColbert says:

Yes it does. This is the revamped version, not the original.

Viper says:

No it isn't. Look at the spec sheet. It specifically says "no microSD slot". The revamped version with LTE has a microSD slot, so this is definitely NOT the LTE version.

goldfndr says:

It also says "4G compatible". With that and "no microSD slot", I don't think ANYTHING Cricket says can be trusted.

4G is just hspa+ LTE is what it doesn't have. Still very capable phone for the price

droid5 says:

My bad I thought that was a European version that had 4G.

Anyone know off hand if the moto G comes unlock alrdy from cricket? Or after buying paying a month or two what ever the case is.. Getting it unlock after. Thanks

Cricket Wireless' customer service is horrendous, maybe the worst in the business. Nice deal on the Moto G though...

abbott says:

Well it's ran by At&t now who has been rated #1 in customer service by JD Power for the last two years. Besides, it's prepaid, what would you need to call customer service for? That's why it's so much cheaper, everything you need to do is self-service. Post-paid costs more because of people bitching about their bills, demanding free stuff and credits, accidental roaming/overages, and asking for special treatment like early upgrades and payment arrangements. Cut all that bull out, and you get the prepaid price.

Cricket also has the nice option of $50 off a phone bought directly for every 12 months of payments on time. up to $150

Not bad for people who cling onto their phone.

I pay Sprint $80 a month for a real phone with unlimited 4G LTE

abbott says:

And up until recently that same exact plan was only $60 for the prepaid version...

jnord61 says:

That was the old Cricket. The New Cricket is way better.

Wish they had the Moto G 4G LTE instead of just the normal one.
Seems it would be much better bang for the buck.
Here's the moto g 4G LTE version on Amazon. With SD card slot (up to 32GB) fully water proof and poised to receive Android 4.4.4. The only downside I can see is there's no NFC connectivity.

Not bad phones for the price. The Moto G is definitely a must have. Shame since the buy out they don't carry the S4. My mom currently has the S4 and wouldn't make sense to jump down to a Galaxy Express.
