According to Cricket, its PAYGo offers unlimited wireless service at $1, $2 or $3 per day used and monthly Cricket PAYGo service plans at $40 and $45 per month. Like all Cricket services, these offerings will be available without a signed contract or credit check and feature unlimited talk, U.S. long distance, access to Cricket’s premium extended coverage, and text, picture messaging and global text messaging.
The $45 plan has all the unlimited features of the $40 plan plus unlimited mobile Web and 411 directory assistance. The new nationwide service plans are inclusive of telecom taxes and fees and include voicemail, call waiting, caller ID and three-way calling over Cricket’s 3G EVDO network. Cricket PAYGo top-up cards will be also available at select Target Corporation locations.
The company has added that two Cricket phones will also be available at Target Corporation. They include the Cricket TXTM8 (pronounced: text mate) which is built for text and picture messaging, and is ideal for staying connected with friends and family through social networks and Mobile Web. Target Corporation guests will also be able to choose the newly launched Cricket CAPTR available.
Al Moschner, chief operating officer of Cricket, said: “We are very delighted to bring our unique Cricket PAYGo products to nearly 650 Target stores in our Cricket markets, millions of people have come to regard Target as a leader in national retail and we are happy to be able to introduce Target Corporation guests to Cricket products that have industry-leading price and value and are simple to understand and use.”
