Cricket nabs the Samsung Chrono as well, but prices it more expensive at $59.99
Late last month in May, the Samsung Chrono offered US Cellular customers a basic handset solution that’s priced decently at $19.99 – no-contract of course.

Now it appears as though Cricket has nabbed the device as well, but strangely enough, it’s presented with almost triple the price of what their competitor is offering at $59.99. Considering that it doesn’t necessarily boast anything awe-inspiring, since it’s basically your usual looking clam-shell handset, it just might be a hard sell for some people out there. Just like US Cellular’s version, the Chrono features a  VGA camera and 3G connectivity.

Although it’s seen as an appreciable gesture, the handset is currently discounted down to $39.99 if you happen to pick it up online – albeit, it’s still double the cost over US Cellular's offering with their model.
