Cricket New Customer: 128GB Motorola Moto One 5G + 2 Months Unlimited Service $150

+5 Deal Score

Similar to this +44 FP deal from October, but a bit less in up-front cost.

You pay $29.99 for the phone and $120 in advance for two months of the unlimited plan. So for $149.99, you get the phone and two months of service. (Edited to reflect you can no longer downgrade your service within the first two months.)

If you buy two phones at the same time, the Cricket Group Save discount applies, and the second phone will be $119.99 ($29.99 plus $90 service in advance). Your total up-front cost will be $269.98: $29.99 each for the two phones and $210 in service credit.

You can port an existing number or get a new phone number. This deal doesn't require a port.

The phone is locked to Cricket for six months.

I bought two phones in the October deal and have been very happy with them. I'm a longtime user of Moto G phones, so this was a nice upgrade.

It seems that Cricket has the Moto one 5G again. The phone cost $30 and you have to pay $2 months of $60 service which is $150 total. Better or worse depends on the way you look at it compared to the last deal where you get the phone for free if you pay 3 months of service. You can get 2 phones with the 2 month service each for $270 total.

Note that you don't have to port your phone numbers and you can get new ones in order to get this deal.

"Account will remain subscribed to $60/mo. plan for two months". probably won't be able to downgrade to $30/mo anymore

First review I read from last year complaining the ATT version won't let you switch off 5g. I would think in a year plus that would get fixed bit I don't know.

I also got two of these from the October deal and have been happy. One is my daily driver. No complaints.

Quote from discman017 :
You have to initially sign up for the $60 per month unlimited plan, but immediately after activation you can downgrade to another plan like the $30 2GB plan.
Apparently the downgrade no longer works for these promo phones. Folks are reported that in the iphone SE thread a few days ago.

Too bad the downgrade/merge/cancel`doesn't work with these cricket promos anymore with the new terms. Was able to do this twice in recent months and keep the credit on an existing account, but apparently they cracked down on it recently by changing and enforcing the terms.

Yes, you can definitely downgrade after the required two months.

I'm an existing Cricket customer. Can I just grab this deal then cancel service after 2 months and swap in my main Sim card/phone #?

What in the terms stops you from adding lines to the new account created?
