AT&T's prepaid carrier Cricket is increasing the data allotment for all of their plans without making any changes to the pricing. It's a bit of a shake-up, offering one of the best data packages among prepaid carriers. Additionally, they're offering the first-generation Moto G for just $24.99, and discounts on several other the best phones on Cricket.
Here's what's changed:
- Basic: $40/month, previously 1GB, now 2.5GB
- Smart: $50/month, previously 3GB, now 5GB
- Pro $60/month, still 10GB
Where things get a little more crazy is the "Advanced" tier, which offers 20GB of data each month, and for a "limited time only" can be had for the same $60/month as the Pro plan. That is, however, so long as you purchase an LTE-capable device to go with that plan.
All plans included unlimited voice and texts, and all but the $40 Basic plan also include unlimited international texting. You can check out Cricket's revised plans right here.
As for that $25 Moto G, that price comes after a mail-in rebate, which you'll get in the form of a prepaid Visa card. You'll have to pay $149.99 up front, of which you'll get $125 back on the card. Cricket is also offering a $70 rebate on the $149.99 HTC Desire 510 and $20 back on the $99.99 LG Optimus L70. We suggest just turning around and applying it to your balance at Cricket.
