Starting November 5, we're adding more data to our most popular plans for surfing and streaming! High-speed data buckets for customers with our $30/mo plan will automatically increase from 1GB to 2GB, while our $40/mo plan customers go from 4GB to 5GB.

Looking for unlimited data on a limited budget?

Our Unlimited 2 plan1 is back, and for a limited time, new and existing Unlimited 2 Plan customers can add up to four (4) lines with unlimited data for just $25 /mo. per line2.
Everything is better in pairs. We're also bringing back the 2 for the $80/mo Unlimited deal on the Unlimited 2 plan
You asked, we listened. Add Mobile Hotspot to your Unlimited and Unlimited 2 plans for $10/mo3 on compatible phones.
And there's more to smile about—you're getting all of this on our new and improved network featuring HD Voice, VoLTE and WiFi Calling on compatible phones.

"Our customers asked for more, and we listened," said Cricket Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Tiffany Baehman. "Our customers now have two ways to enjoy unlimited data. And for those on our Unlimited 2 plan, they can add another line to their account for just $25 a month."

Couple warnings for existing customers:

Group Save Discount is a 30% price INCREASE (4 Lines $100 -> $110), 5 lines ($100 -> $130)
Group save discount for 5 lines will drop by $30 if you make any changes to your plan or lines after Nov 4, 2017. The group discount math goes from 0+10+20+30+40 to 0+10+20+20+20. Keep this in mind if you change plans or add/drop a line.
Quote from cricket.com :
Group Save Discounts*
We've updated our Group Save discounts. Don't worry, you'll still enjoy great savings on lines 2-5:
  • Goup Save Discount: Line 2 - $10, Line 3 - $20, Line 4 - $20 ($10 increase), Line 5 - $20 ($20 increase)
Note for existing Group Save customers with 4 or 5 line accounts as of Nov. 4, 2017: If you make changes to your account after Nov. 4, 2017, you will begin receiving the new Group Save discounts at the start of your next billing cycle. Account changes include changing your plan, adding a line, canceling a line, moving a line to a different account, or restoring a canceled line. The new Group Save discounts will reduce your discounts on line 4 (from $30 to $20) and line 5 (from $40 to $20) as applicable. Group Save: Minimum $40/mo plan required on all lines. Discount on lines 2-5 only on the same account and may vary ($10 line 2; $20 each lines 3-5). Not combinable with Auto Pay credit/select promo rates.
The Smart (8GB high speed for $50 w/group discount) has been discontinued with these changes. You can keep it if you have it, but can't get it back.

To Cricket's credit, they are very clear about both of these changes on their site if you try to change your plan.

-Double Check your AutoPay Amount!! Was just charged $130 instead of $100. I made no changes to my account. 5 min web chat rep credited $30 to the account. Rep "We don't have it on record why this happened as it shouldn't"

I have five lines on my Cricket account, so this is good news.

I'm hoping they start offering better pricing for existing customers upgrading to a different phone. For a while, they had the Moto E for $1. They seem to have changed their 'upgrade' structure when it comes to existing accounts replacing phones.

Ya because they were paying deadbeats for phones they only intended to flip.

I don't understand this one; right now I have 5 basic lines, $40/mo - discounts so $100/mo for 5 lines = 4GB data; soon to be 5 (yay)
so why would I not go with unlimited for $100/mo?
Is it a limited time price; meaning in a few months ot goes back to reg price?

This is what my understanding is based on 2 given at end of the page:

"2 $55/mo. Unlimited 2 plan req'd on each elig. line (min. 2); 1st line full price. Not elig for Auto Pay credit or Group Save discount. See store for details."

$55 for first unlimited line + $25 each on rest of the unlimited lines.

55+25+25+25+25 = $155.

If I'm reading this correctly, let's say I sign up for UNLIMITED plan for 60/m for one line then add 3 more for $75, totally $135 per month? Group saving apply too?

Ahh thanks. Answered my question. So each line gets 22gb b4 throttled or if the whole group combined for 22gb?

Thanks; wonder what the upload speed is? would I notice 3M on my phones; mainly just surf; don't want to waste all my data on video at this time; but I could youtube & watch my Dishanywhere?
Right now I seem to average 8-10 down & 8ish up.
My home DSL is at best 10 down 1.5up (I never upload videos anymore takes all night!)

And mix & match? 2 unlimited 2 lines, 3 basic w/auto discount?)
