My girlfriend uses Cricket Wireless. A little while back, her current phone was inoperable for a few days (Android reload was needed to fix issue) and she had no phone or text abilities during that time. I have been keeping an eye out for a cheap backup device she could keep on hand in case her primary device has issues again down the road.

I stumbled on this today:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Cricket...e/44657945

This is a Cricket branded Samsung Galaxy Core Prime Prepaid Smartphone sold at Walmart. The lowest price I had previously seen was around sixty bucks, so I was a little shocked to find it priced at $15.97 today and snagged one right away.

Note: This is NOT the GRAND PRIME model sold in Cricket stores.

The item does not appear to be available for shipping. Online order with in store pickup is available. Only one of the Walmart stores in my area had the device on hand for pickup, so availability may vary greatly depending on your location.

EDIT: THE WALMART SITE SHOWS INVENTORY (ACCURATE OR NOT) FOR YOUR FIVE CLOSEST LOCATIONS IN MOST CASES. IF YOU ARE IN A LARGE METRO AREA WITH MANY WALMART LOCATIONS AND THIS ITEM SHOWS AS OUT OF STOCK BASED ON YOUR ACTUAL LOCATION, TRY INPUTTING OTHER ZIP CODES FROM YOUR METRO AREA. YOU MAY FIND OTHER STORES WITHIN A REASONABLE DRIVING DISTANCE THAT HAVE IT IN STOCK.

The phone is LOCKED to Cricket Wireless.

The specs for the device are not impressive when comparing it to flagship devices, but for less than $20, one cannot expect a top end device. I doubt many will have much use for this device, but hopefully this post will benefit someone!

Maybe find them in stores and price match to website. Looks good for the casual user or as a cheap Cricket backup phone. Great if ya need a sim and a backup phone!!!!

Cheapest unlock code is $14 on ebay. Total cost for unlocked phone becomes around $30 for me.

it's locked to cricket, but if I don't activate it for cell service is it still usable as an android mp3 / camera / hangouts device?

I was hoping to use this as merely a device to leave in the kitchen to listen to the radio through "Tune-in" radio, would this work or would I have to sign up for an account too with Cricket?

Man, I really want to jump on this but I'm developing a huge collection of backup phones for Cricket. I'm an Android guy but kinda liking the $6.00 Lumia 640's for backup duty. It was just a matter of time before we saw old Cricket phones being cleared out at big box stores.
