The LG Stylo 5
and Moto G7 Power
are without a doubt two of the most popular mid-range smartphones unveiled so far this year, but while various carriers
and major retailers
have lowered the already reasonable price points of these bad boys on numerous occasions
in the recent past
, Cricket's newest deals are pretty much unbeatable.
AT&T's subsidiary currently allows new subscribers to score the LG Stylo 5, Moto G7
Supra, Samsung Galaxy J2 Pure, Nokia 3.1
Plus, Nokia 3.1 C, Moto E5
Cruise, LG Harmony 2, and LG Fortune 2 completely free of charge. In case you're wondering, G7 Supra is simply the prepaid operator's alternate name for the battery life champion
otherwise known as the Moto G7 Power
Naturally, you have to meet certain conditions to qualify for a free handset from the aforementioned list, starting with a good old fashioned carrier switch. In other words, you need to port in an existing number from a wireless service provider that's not AT&T. You also have to activate your gratis new phone of choice on a new Cricket Wireless line with a monthly plan setting you back at least $55.
That essentially narrows down your options to either the unlimited Cricket Core plan or the Cricket More plan including unlimited talk, text, and data, as well as a 15GB mobile hotspot monthly allotment. The only other thing you'll want to remember is that an activation fee of up to $25 per line and additional one-time fees may apply, so you're technically looking at coughing up a few bucks upfront here. Oh, and with the exception of the Moto E5 Cruise and Samsung J2 Pure, which will remain on sale at $0 until November 21, the rest of the devices eligible for this killer fall promotion are to go back up to their normal prices on October 1.
The Moto G7 Supra/G7 Power, for instance, costs $149.99 for upgrading Cricket customers or new ones that also need a new phone number, while the LG Stylo 5 typically goes for $200. The Nokia 3.1 C and 3.1 Plus
are not exactly dirt-cheap either, fetching $100 and $120 respectively when they're not available for free.
