If you are one of the lucky people that signed on to the Cricket Wireless 5 lines for $100 plan, there is some bad news ahead for you. According to a Cricket Wireless customer service representative, the price on your plan is going to come up a bit in the next few months. Upon checking the rates of a 4 line plan, we found that the $100 rate that is active right now will only be there for anther month or two before it increases $10. While this is still a great deal, this leads us to believe that the 5 line plan will also go up a minimum of $20, but more than likely $30.

Currently, the 5 lines for $100 plan includes unlimited talk and text and 1GB of LTE data (8 Mbps speeds) before you are slowed to 2G speeds for the remainder of your billing cycle. For $10 per line more, you can get 3GB of LTE speeds, while $20 per line extra gets you 10GB of LTE before being slowed. You can also apply the upgrades to individual lines should you want to do so. According to the CSR, existing users will not be grandfathered in with their current discount rate, but the pricing is still one of the best offers in wireless.
It’s also worth noting that Cricket Wireless has a few online specials on devices right now as well. The Nokia Lumia 630, the ZTE Sonata 4G and the ZTE Overture LTE are all free after mail-in rebate. You only pay the tax on these entry level handsets, which makes the move to Cricket look even better right now. If you want a bit more phone, the ZTE Grand X is also on the rebate program, but the street price of $149.99 makes the device cost $99.99 after MIR.
