Cricket Wireless is offering the LG Stylo 2 for $49.99 w/ free shipping with a new line activation (minimum $30). This also works if you add another line to your existing plan.

So total for the phone if you're a current user or planning to use it on another carrier is $80 ($50 + $30).

Cricket Wireless is also offering the Apple iPhone 5s 16gb for $100, and the LG X Power $50 for new line activations only.

LG STYLO 2 $50 [cricketwireless.com]
iPhone 5s 16gb $100 [cricketwireless.com]
LG X Power $50 [cricketwireless.com]

Pretty slick if you're planning to switch to Cricket Wireless anyways..

Deal ended before 1/5/17:
LG STYLO 2 was $50 on FP, now $149.99 with activation or $99 with activation if you bring your number
iPhone 5s 16gb was $100 on FP, now $199.99 with activation
LG X Power was $50 on FP, now $99 with activation or $79.99 with activation if you bring your number





Cricket Wireless uses the AT&T network:

1GB..................$30 (no autopay availble)
2.5 GB..............$40 ($35 w/ Autopay)
8 GB ............... $50 ($45 w/ Autopay)
10 GB.............. $60 ($55 w/ Autopay)
UNLIMITED ..... $70 ($65 w/ Autopay)

They all come with unlimited calls and texting. Each additional person on the plan knocks the total price by $10 increments from the previous discount. For ex, line 2 = $10 discount, line 3 = $20 discount, line 4 = $30 discount, line 5 = $40 discount.

If you have 5 lines, each 2.5gb line is only $20. You can also mix and match these plan types in a multiple line account.

EG.
Cost of each line with 5 lines active
2.5gb.................$20
8gb....................$30
10gb...................$40
unlimited data .... $50

(no autopay available with group plans)

This is because $100 will be subtracted from the total monthly cost. Only drawback is Cricket throttles you to 8mb/s which is fast enough for most people's daily usage.

For those of you having trouble getting the phone representative to resolve your issue, use the "Chat" button found on the bottom left corner of the page right below "blog". Many members have reported horrible customer service over the phone but excellent customer service through Chat. They are closed from 12:00AM-7:00AM EST.

There's only 2 ways to unlock this iPhone with Cricket.

1st. You need to activate the $70 Plan SINCE THE BEGINNING, this is very important because if you don't start with the $70 plan, the phone will not be unlocked until the 7th month. You can downgrade plan after the phone is unlocked, they don't give you any refunds, but they prorate.

2nd. You can activate any plan you want, and they can unlock the phone, during the 7th month.

I hope I'm clear, because the information on their website is misleading, and there's no way around this.

I learned this, the hard way.

This is probably the best deal on the Stylo 2 all year. What's with all the thumbs down?

Seems like X Power is better than the Stylo, specs-wise, except for the larger screen on the Stylo, am I right there? Which prob would just look worse given the low resolution...
Trying to decide whether to go with one of these guys or the Verizon Moto G4 Play. Not using any of them as actual phones, just a handheld emulator console but would like to be able to play up to PS1 titles.

From what I see, it looks to me like the Stylo 2 is the better one specs wise.

I'm thinking about getting one of these and would rather not get the huge one, but it looks like the Stylo 2 has a snapdragon 410 processor (vs 210 for the x power), 2 gb ram (vs 1.5), and 13mp camera (vs 8). There is a review of the x power on anandtech, and it is not good. I can't find any reviews on the Stylo 2 though.

One thing I forgot to mention- the North American variant of the LG X Power is different than the international version and has significantly worse hardware.

Ahh, darn, I just saw that activation is required. I thought you could buy the phone outright but that's not so. Guess I'll be going with the Moto G4 Play deal!

Yep, my research at first showed the X Power to be pretty solid but after I saw that the international versions of these phones were different than Cricket, it became a very different picture for the X Power.

I read somewhere that you can request sim-unlock after 6 month being on their plan or some unlimited data plan.

Anyone smart enough on here to know if I can get the stylo 2 when I already have 5 lines, (I don't use 1 of them).
My wife has a love hate with her stylo 1, loves the pen, hates the fact she can only load like 4 apps.

Call to cancel the one line you don't use. Order the Stylo2 on an added line tomorrow. You'll pay the 40 for the added line, but get 40 in credit on next months bill. Cycle that 5th line whenever you need a new phone or they offer 50/100 for switching.

Thanks. I thought this was a cyber monday deal, but I see good thru 1/5/17; so hopefully it will work.

BTW I started an add a line, and it let me get all the way to checkout for $79.99; I didn't finish the purchase. Now in my account I have a new # awaiting activation... (so 6#'s)
