New to Cricket? Port over your number and save 36% on the Microsoft Lumia 650
If you're a new Cricket Wireless customer, and port your current phone number over to the pre-paid carrier, you can get the Microsoft Lumia 650 for only $69.99 with new activation. That is down from Cricket's usual $109.99 price and represents a 36% hair cut. At the Microsoft Store, the price of the handset is $199.99. So you can see that you will be saving some long green by taking Cricket up on its offer.

The Lumia 650 features a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5-inch AMOLED screen with a 720 x 1280 resolution. A quad-core 1.3GHz CPU drives the phone, which also features the Adreno 304 GPU. The camera combo from back to front is 8MP/5MP and a 2000mAh battery powers the handset. 1GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of expandable native storage. Windows 10 Mobile is pre-installed.

Cricket's plans include unlimited talk, text and data. For $40 a month, you will have 2.5GB of high speed datato use. For $50 monthly, you receive 5GB of 4G LTE data. That doubles to 10GB of high speed data for $60 a month. And for $70 monthly, you will have unlimited 4G LTE data. Take $5 off the price of any plan each month that you use auto pay.

Not a bad deal, the bands alone make this phone amazing, let alone Windows 10. Kind of bummer that continuum isn't available here

Great sounding deal, but I still don't like dealer branding on phones. Unless you're really proud to be a Cricket customer and don't mind the name on the back. I may yet buy this phone to try it out, but it will be the unlocked version from the MS store.
