Cricket Wireless Now Available in U.S. Military Exchanges

San Diego CA— Cricket Wireless services can now be found in 122 military exchanges in U.S. based military bases. This includes 83 Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) stores, 14 Marine Corps Exchanges (MCX) and 26 Navy Exchanges (NEXCOM).

Cricket Wireless is proud to bring military families:

  • Simple, transparent plans with no annual contract: Rate plan pricing starts at $30/month[1] and includes monthly taxes so there are no surprises. One less thing to worry about for families on the move.
  • Power of a nationwide 4G LTE Network Cricket offers more 4GLTE coverage than T-Mobile, Metro PCS, Sprint and Boost[2].
  • Plans that include Mexico and Canada: Unlimited calling, text and messaging to and from, and in and between the U.S., Mexico and Canada included in plans $50/month and higher (minimum 50% U.S. usage required).

Working with Wireless Advocates and the exchanges, military shoppers can take home the Risio 2, CoolPad, HTC Desire 550, Sol 2 or a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) kit to activate their own compatible smartphones on Cricket’s network.

“Military members and families have enough on their plates. We’re here to make things easier with no annual contracts, flexible plans and the latest devices and services,” said Dave Fine, vice president of Sales and Distribution, Cricket Wireless. “When they make their regular runs to these exchanges, they can quickly find us.”

“I’ve spent a lot of time in the Exchange over the years. First as an Air Force brat and then as an Airman myself,” said Darin Morrow, vice president and CIO, Cricket Wireless. “Prepaid wireless, particularly Cricket, makes a lot of sense for military families. And now it’s available in the exchanges. We offer the kind of flexibility and reliability that these families need all for a great price.”
