Off-contract iPhone 5S, 5C come to Cricket

Customers of the prepaid network can begin ordering Apple's new iPhones online, for $500 and $600, respectively.

Cricket customers waiting for the iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C can stop twiddling their fingers and start reaching for their wallets.

The prepaid carrier announced on Friday that the 16GB versions of Apple's latest crop of smartphones is on sale. Following the trendy new sales structure, Cricket offers two ways to pay. You can buy the iPhone 5S for $599.99 up front or for $25 down, making up the difference with long-term monthly installments.

Similarly, you can defer the entire $499.99 5C bill by paying $21 down and spacing out the rest month by month. Talk, text, and data plans start at $50 per month.
