    Getting a One Plus One isn't just about getting a flagship phone for a killer price, it's also the ability to put the phone on a plan like Cricket wireless. If my wife and I each buy a One, we can save 790 dollars over two years by going to Cricket vs. Staying on Sprint for two more years and never upgrading our phones. That is amazing!

    Cricket is an AT&T MVNO so it benefits from the expanded coverage. On the other hand, LTE speeds are throttled to 8 Mbps and HSPA+ to 4 Mbps

    Cricket was a CDMA network but now that AT&T owns them they may be using GSM. Cricket was famous for taking Sprint phones with bad ESN's and laying down a fresh image that you could use on Cricket's network. ;)

    I'm using Cricket Wireless now which is owned and operated by AT&T, $55/month with autopay and I get 5GB data, unlimited talk/text. I used to be on the $45/mo plan which is 2.5GB data but I upgraded. Taxes and everything included which is great. If anyone wants a referral please PM me - how it would work is after 60 days of active service we'd both receive a $25.00 credit on our bills. I've had them for months - even on my Nexus 5. I came from Straight Talk - which had horrible customer service and just in the long run ends up screwing everyone.

    Imablackhat is correct . I to had straight talk they throttled me for using too much data in one day. I dropped them and went to Cricket on the 3 meg plan and I have no complaints.

    Since I received my OnePlus in the mail yesterday I have gone from T-Mobile to AT&T . . . though I'm not overly impressed by AT&T's pricing. Would it be worth it to switch to Cricket at this point? Their prices seem way better, I am just concerned about the throttling of data that it has been stated that they do.

    I've made the switch from Sprint to cricket as well. 3 lines will save me about $55 a month compared to what I was paying before. If anyone else wants a referral, I'm here to help. I'm happy with the results so far.

    Hey try to see if you can rejoin with the 10gb promo they got going it would be worth paying another small activation fee maybe.

    New Cricket sim cards should just be plug and play. If you have any trouble, try rebooting the phone. Still having trouble? Contact cricket support.

    Cricket stores starting November 14th - December 31st (maybe online too)
    $100 credit for switching from several carriers: http://slickdeals.net/f/7355824
    Nokia Lumia 635 windows (4G LTE) Free after $75 rebate
    HTC Desire 510 android (4G LTE) Free after $75 rebate
    Motorola Moto G android (4G LTE) $24.99 after $75.00 rebate

    Can I get the free phone HTC Desire that has a rebate $75 (making it free) when I open a mobile plan and just take the sim card and use it to my oneplus one phone?

    Basically, once the new free phone + sim card arrive, I want to use Oneplus one, can I just use the sim card given and sell the free HTC phone? Will it work with no problem?
