Cricket Offers ZTE Overture 2 for $50

ZTE Overture2

AT&T prepaid brand Cricket Wireless has added a new phone to its lineup this week. While normally I would say that the ZTE Overture 2 isn’t really anything to get super excited about, this upgraded handset is one of the lowest-priced Android Lollipop phones I’ve seen yet, and the specs aren’t half bad.

At $50, you really can’t complain about much. And, to make it even better, Cricket is currently running a limited-time mail-in rebate promotion for customers who port in, which would make the phone free. And free is always the best price.

As far as specs go, the ZTE Overture 2 is more or less what you’d expect from just about any sub $100 smartphone:

  • Android Lollipop 5.0
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB memory
  • microSD slot
  • 5 MP back camera
  • VGA front camera
  • 2100 mAh battery
  • 4G connectivity

In order to get this device for free, you have to purchase the phone, then fill out and mail in this rebate form by July 9, 2015. Rebates are only available for customers who port from a non-AT&T brand and purchase two months of service. The rebate will be paid in the form of a prepaid Visa card. Click here to learn more.

Cricket Wireless is probably one of the best AT&T prepaid options, and they are owned by AT&T, so you should be able to expect pretty good customer service from this brand. Cricket Wireless has plans ranging from $25 – $60, depending on what features customers prefer. To learn more about Cricket Wireless, visit their website or check out our indepth review.
