Maximum price you will pay is $60 for 1 month of service (the phone is free with port in) but if you cancel or downgrade on activation that will turn into a credit. Separately, you have a chance to earn two $25 credits; one of these requires you to have service for at least 60 days (see information below).

Cricket Wireless runs off the AT&T network. In fact, Cricket is now owned by ATT.
This is a post paid plan so you can cancel the plan anytime
Phone locked to Cricket for 6 months (but can be used for trade in for better offers)
Cricket promotional devices are limited to two per household. (So, if you got another promotional offer from Cricket in the last X (6?) months, you can only get 1 more to stay within the limit)
Get $25 credit if using a referral code. Credit will be posted to your account so it is not instant. Just search the internet and ebay for the referral code.
Many credit cards offer $25 credit for cricket wireless (example, Bank of America)
Porting info (account / PIN) needs to be confirmed at the time of placing an order with Cricket but the actual port (switching the numbers between the SIM cards) does not happen until you activate service (Cricket's phone and SIM card need to be in your possession).
So, hypothetically this could be $0 for phone and you also get $25 credit on credit card and $25 credit using Cricket referral code. The two $25 credits are on the back end so you won't see it instantly when you order
You may get free Pandora Premium music for 90 days. I didn't notice how to opt out but presumable you can do so to avoid auto billing for it after 90 days.
If you have problems ordering with Firefox, use CHROME or EDGE browser.
referral code for $25 credit can be added upto 30 days from activation.
You must confirm your number transfer within three days of ordering or your order will be canceled
Also, the $40 plan ($35 with auto-pay) just got recently bumped from 5GB to 10GB. So, really a good deal for $5 increase from the $30 2GB plan, even if you are parking your number temporarily to move."
"I believe you have 30-days to activate the phone. The 3-days is for verifying / confirming the porting information, if there was anything incorrect in the information provided when placing the order. If your porting information is correct, your phone will get shipped. Otherwise, they will wait for 3-days for you to confirm the details before cancelling it. If your order is shipped, then you to activate within 30-days (from ship date or receive date - not sure, but within 25-days as a safe bet)."
"If you need a number to port highly recommend picking up one of these at Best Buy for $5, activate the service which is free with credit than immediately port out. Cheaper and safer than ebay IMO. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/ting...Id=6406986
"I did Tello took custom plan 100 min no data for $5. Used sprint sim / lg phone .. got new number. Activated, made test call. got port out everything in 15~20 minutes online without human interaction"
POST PURCHASE STEPS
1) Activate phone (for new accounts)
2) Create an online account
3) Add referral code for $25 credit (can be done withing first 30 days)
4) Downgrade plan
5) Add autopay to get $5 monthly credits
6) Remove Pandora Premium for which you are automatically enrolled into when you order the phone and which you will be billed $10 each month after the first 3 months unless you proactively cancel it.
