Cricket Wireless to Offer Apple’s iPhone With Prepaid Plan On June 22nd

Cricket Wireless has just announced that it will start offering Apple’s iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 on its network from June 22nd.

Cricket Wireless will be the first carrier in the US to sell Apple’s iPhone with prepaid plans.

However, the no-contract plans means that customers will have to pay a higher upfront costfor Apple’s iPhone. The 16GB iPhone 4S will cost $499 and 8GB iPhone 4 will cost $399 with $55 per-month, all-inclusive unlimited talk, text and data plan. Cricket Wireless will throttle the speed after 2.3GB of data usage per month.

Here’s an excerpt from Cricket’s press release:

Cricket Communications, Inc., a leading provider of innovative and value-driven wireless services, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leap Wireless International, Inc., announced today that it will be the first pre-paid carrier in the US to offer iPhone to its customers. Beginning on Friday, June 22, Cricket will offer iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 with its $55 per-month, all-inclusive unlimited talk, text and data plan. [..]

[..] “Our customers want the best products available and we are excited to bring iPhone to our pre-paid consumers with an industry leading $55 per-month service plan,” said Doug Hutcheson, president and chief executive officer, Leap Wireless International, Inc. “Launching iPhone is a major milestone for us and we are proud to offer iPhone customers attractive nationwide coverage, a robust 3G data network and a value-packed, no-contract plan.”  

The prepaid plan is available only to customers who have bought the iPhone from Cricket. Interested customers can provide their contact details on Cricket’s website.

Apple continues to expand the availability of the iPhone. Last month, six regional carriersstarted offering Apple’s iPhone, followed by three more regional carriers earlier in the month.

Cricket Brings iPhone to its Prepaid Network

By Ginny MiesPCWorld

Remember the days when you could only get the iPhone on AT&T? My, how things have changed. Cricket has announced that it will bring the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S on its prepaid network. This is the first time the iPhone has been offered on a prepaid carrier.

That means you’ll have to shell out a little more for the iPhone since it won’t be subsidized. When the phones go on sale June 22, a 16GB iPhone 4S will cost $500 and an 8GB iPhone 4 will cost $400. Before your jaw drops at those prices, take into consideration how cheap Cricket’s plan is: $55 per month for unlimited voice, SMS and data. Calling the data unlimited is a little misleading, however: you must stay within Cricket’s fair usage policy of 2.3GB of data a month.

Since Cricket’s plan is prepaid, you won’t get slapped with surprise post-paid, usage-based fees as you might on a contract carrier. If the prepaid model appeals to you, but you’ve never been too thrilled with the current prepaid phones out there, this will be good news for you.
