Cricket Wireless iPhone 8 Plus 128GB $299...still available

Don't want to pay for the latest and greatest iPhone? You're in luck since a brand new iPhone 8 Plus with 128GB is still available and comes with a 1-year Apple warranty. I believe these cost over $800 new when released in Sept. 2017. It's yours now for $299 and still takes great pictures, water resistant, wireless charging, 5.5" display, latest iOS, etc.

There is an additional fee of $25 if upgrading (existing customers), and a $30 plan or higher is required (both new and existing customers).

If the status shows "out of stock", check back the next day or so for availability. Seems to go in/out of stock throughout the week.

Very tempting. Large screen, fingerprint unlock, home button, and new condition. It's got all of the good features that current models don't have

In internet slang, a troll is a person who starts flame wars or upsets people on the Internet by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses

Need new phones for kids. Is this a good deal or would it be better to try to find a used iPhone X or something?

The last time I looked at their policy, it said they might lock it for six months. Not indefinitely.

Not a bad price for 128gb phone. You might might an iPhone 10 for like $499 but that's only going to be 64gb.

For kids, I would probably just get the cricket iPhone 7. Even if you just create a new account, with a dummy port in number, you're looking at $160 (phone + plus unused plan). Or even $110 for the 6s. They are older but nothing is wrong with them. Plus, their backs are made of metal. 7 adds water and dust resistance too.

If you aren't only looking at Apple, something like a Moto G Power might be nice. Huge battery and large screen, though not the most powerful for gaming. Also about $160 unlocked going through Google Fi

No. Simply buying a phone and using it (in place of your previous phone) won't affect your plan.
