"The Galaxy S4 redefines the smartphone and we are very proud to offer our customers the highest level of wireless technology on the market," said Matt Stoiber, senior vice president of devices for Cricket. "Cricket's three smartphone rate plans start as low as $45 per month1 and give customers value-packed choices for the plan that's right for them with unlimited music included."
The Galaxy S4 is the first device to enable consumers to control the device with touch-less features including scrolling or turning a page and viewing documents within a file folder or a link on a web page. It enhances memorable moments with innovative camera features that captures progressive action and easily removes unwanted people from the photo. The Galaxy S4 also enhances the TV watching experience with the new Samsung WatchON™ service that simplifies searching and recommends TV, movies and sports according to personal tastes. With WatchOn and the built in IR blaster, the Galaxy S4 also functions as a remote control for home theater equipment.
The Galaxy S4 combines the simple and visual interface introduced with the Galaxy Series Camera with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera to take professional looking photographs with a smartphone. The front-facing 2-megapixel camera on the Galaxy S4 allows consumers to capture special moments in unique and new ways with Dual Camera shooting mode. Dual Camera mode takes pictures with both the rear and front cameras simultaneously to enable the photographer to be in the photo as well.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is available on Cricket's 4G LTE Android Muve Music Double Data service plans that offer, for a limited time, double the monthly full speed data allowance offered in 3G rate plans. The $50 4G LTE Android Muve Music Double Data Rate Plan allows 2GB of full-speed data; the $60 plan allows 5GB of full-speed data and the $70 plan offers 10GB of full-speed data.
The Galaxy S4 is also available on Cricket's 3G all-inclusive smartphone rate plans start at $50 for unlimited talk and text plus up to 1GB of full-speed data per month. The $60 smartphone plan contains up to 2.5GB of full-speed data per month and the $70 smartphone plan offers up to 5GB of full-speed data per month. With the $60 and $70 plans, customers can use their device as a hot spot to power additional wireless devices.
Cricket 4G LTE service is now available in Philadelphia, Phoenix, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Laredo, Corpus Christi and the Brownsville-McAllen-Harlingen market, Texas in addition to existing 4G LTE service in Las Vegas and Tucson. The company's LTE service now covers approximately 21 million potential customers.

Don't even try financing any device from Cricket unless you make over $1,000 per month. My step-dad went in and asked them about it and they told him because he doesn't make at least $1,000 per month he doesn't qualify.

Dude no offense but if you don't make at least that then a high end smartphone shouldn't be a priority.

I could agree w/ you, but I only make half that much a month (full-time student/part-time employee). But a smart phone is a priority for me; would never buy a feature phone no matter how cheap the feature phone plan is. Just got to make some sacrifices.
But I think it'd be nice if Cricket lowered the $1,000 minimum amount you have to make a month to qualify. I own a credit card and don't even make that much a month. And yes, that is irresponsible of me.
