Remember the mid-range Motorola One 5G smartphone that Cricket Wireless picked up just a little over a month ago after an original announcement all the way back in September 2020 and a commercial release on both AT&T and Verizon by the end of last year?
Unsurprisingly, the already affordable 6.7-inch handset is now even cheaper, starting at... $0 for the prepaid operator's new customers. Obviously, you will need to meet a couple of special requirements to save the full $259.99 normally charged for current Cricket subscribers, but we're not talking anything too convoluted or unusually inconvenient.

The good news is your 180 bucks will get you unlimited talk, text, and high-speed data ("nationwide" 5G network access included), as well as a generous 15GB monthly mobile hotspot allotment, 150 gigs of cloud storage at no extra cost, and unlimited texts from the US to 37 countries.
Motorola One 5G also happens to be arguably one of the best budget 5G phones available in 2021, eclipsing the One 5G Ace in terms of raw power, display refresh rate capabilities, and camera versatility with a Snapdragon 765 processor, 90Hz support, and no less than six different shooters in tow.The
On top of everything, this complimentary bad boy packs a hefty 5,000mAh battery and roomy 128 gigs of internal storage space while settling for a so-so 4GB RAM count that was most likely necessary to keep the MSRP in check.
