Cricket to Offer Galaxy S6 April 24


Cricket Wireless, AT&T’s prepaid brand, has finally¬†announced¬†an official date for offering Samsung’s newest flagship, the Galaxy S6. Starting on April 24, customers will be able purchase the smartphone in Cricket stores and online. The phone itself has already been available at Boost Mobile stores since last week, but I suppose late is better than never.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 features top of the line specs including an excellent camera, 3 GB of RAM, an 8 core processor and a pretty good battery. Critics have been slamming the phone since its announcement at the Mobile World Congress for the non-removable battery and lack of an SD card slot. Despite this, the device is still has a smooth look and feel.

The S6 will retail off-contract through Cricket Wireless for $649.99. Customers purchasing in Cricket stores or online can apply for the new phone financing offered through third-parties inside Cricket stores. Well qualified customers can finance phones in a similar manner to the phone payment programs of postpaid brands, adding a small amount to each monthly bill. There is also a 90 day same as cash option with no credit check.

Cricket Wireless offers several low-cost monthly prepaid options ranging from $40 – $60. The company sells phones and also supports BYOD. For more information on Cricket Wireless, visit their website.
