Oh Jiminey! Cricket to launch Samsung Galaxy S4 on June 7th
Count Cricket in among the pre-paid carriers that will add the Samsung Galaxy S4 to their lineup. Not only do we have word that Cricket will be offering the phone to its customers, we even have a launch date of June 7th. Unlike most pre-paid carriers that ask you to pay for the phone by plunking down the full price, Cricket is asking you to put down $55 and pay off the balance in monthly installments. If you don't qualify for the installment plan, you can pay the $599.99 MSRP for the handset.

As for 4G LTE data plans, the $50 4G LTE Android Muve Music Double Data Rate Plan allows for 2GB of full-speed data a month, the $60 plan gives you 5GB of full-speed data and the $70 plan offers 10GB of full-speed data. Just keep in mind that the number of Cricket locations that offer LTE is a pretty short list at the moment, covering 21 million POPs in Philadelphia, Phoenix, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Laredo, Corpus Christi Brownsville-McAllen-Harlingen, Las Vegas and Tucson.

You can also buy the phone for use with Cricket's 3G plans. $50 a month gets you unlimited talk and text and 1GB of data, while $60 gives you 2.5GB of data. The highest price plan, $70, comes with 5GB of 3G data.
