By Jiminy! Cricket to sell the Samsung Galaxy S7 starting on March 18th
Last month, we told you that pre-paid carrier Cricket would be offering the Samsung Galaxy S7. We now have a date when this will begin, which is March 18th. The phone will be available from Cricket's online and physical stores for $649.99. Make the purchase between March 18th and April 1st, and you'll receive a free Samsung Gear VR headset along with six free games. That bundle has a value of $150.

Cricket, owned by AT&T, will be selling Samsung's new flagship model at more than 3800 stores across the nation. More than 308 million Americans live underneath Cricket's 4G LTE signal.

$40 a month ($35 with Auto Pay) buys you unlimited talk, text and data (2.5GB of which is high-speed data). $50 a month ($45 with Auto Pay) raises the amount of high-speed data to 5GB, and gives you free unlimited international texting to 38 countries. You can also use 50% of your plan to make unlimited calls and texts to and from Canada, Mexico and the U.S. Cricket's top-of-the-line plan will run you $60 ($55 with Auto Pay) and features 10GB of high-speed data.

Just because you are using a pre-paid carrier doesn't mean that you need to sport an old, under-spec'd phone. Cricket is proving that as the pre-paid wireless carrier, along with Boost Mobile and Virgin, will sell you the Samsung Galaxy S7. If interested, click on the sourcelink below.
