It’s a rare thing to come across a person without a cell phone these days. And while many people spend hundreds of dollars every month on their cell phone bill – paying for each call, text or minute spent on the web – value-driven customers have found a better alternative. Cricket Communications Inc., a leading provider of innovative wireless services and a wholly owned subsidiary of Leap Wireless International, Inc., offers a large range of cutting-edge phones at price plans that won’t break the bank. Another perk? You don’t have to sign a contract, and no credit checks are required.
District Manager Devin Wyckoff welcomes new customers to the Jenks location at 807 E. A St. “Prices on our plans can’t be beat, with plans ranging from $35 to $65 a month. That’s half what you’d pay many other phone service providers,” says Wyckoff. “Unlimited talk and text is only $35 per month. Android and smart phone plans are as low as $55 a month, and our Muve Music phone plans also start around that price.”
Muve Music is the first and only music experience designed specifically for a mobile phone. Once inside Muve Music, customers can quickly search for and download songs and even entire albums in just seconds, in addition to unlimited ringtones and ringbacks. “Rather than pay $1.99 for each song you download, the Muve Music plans allow you to download up to 3,000 songs on your phone,” says Wyckoff. The program offers millions of choices, including local music. The current music library size is four to eight million songs and growing, and all can be converted to ringtones or ringbacks.
If you’re in the market for a top-notch smart phone, Wyckoff says the Mercury is an excellent choice. “The Mercury is currently the best phone we have. It has a front camera and a rear camera. It also has a camera flash,” he explains. “The Mercury is currently the fastest phone that Cricket offers, at 1.4 gigahertz. It has a four-inch screen, which is also the largest we have. It is an Android phone, but is the best phone on the market.”
For great prices, selection and friendly service, visit your local Jenks Cricket store. “We are your ‘Your Neighborhood Cricket Store,’” says Wyckoff.
