Spotify may be all the rage with the hipster set but many postpaid customers on Cricket already enjoy the carrier's Muve music service. Now retailer Kmart plans to offer Muve along with other Cricket products and handsets in its stores.

Cricket bundles Muve music, which provides unlimited song downloads, ringtones, and ringbacktones, into a special wireless plan that costs $55 per month. This prepaid subscription includes standard cell services, too, such as unlimited text, 3G data access, and a bucket of 1,000 voice minutes, all without a long 2-year contract.

The carrier also named four handsets that Kmart will sell and come bundled with the Muve music app. They comprise two smartphones, the ZTE Score ($129.99) and Samsung Vitality ($199.99), along with the Samsung Chrono ($39.99) and Huawei Pillar ($69.99) feature phones.
