Best Cricket Phone

The best cricket phone is probably the Audiovox 8900 or 8910. They are both camera flip phones, which makes them the best for me. You can go to
to see their list of all phones, but you have to find more info about the phones on a search engine because they don't provide any.
I'm thinkin about getting Cricket too, because they offer unlimited minutes, which you won't find anywhere else!

Bluetooth for Cricket?

You seem pretty knowledgeable about Cricket phones - any idea if Cricket is coming out with a Bluetooth-enabled phone anytime soon? I just got a Toyota Prius with a bluetooth-enabled nav system and can't use it with my existing Cricket phone. And I can't change plans because I make all local calls and Cricket offers the best plan for that by far. Thanks!

I don't know what market the original poster lives in, but if that person lives in one of the markets in Michigan that Cricket serves, Verizon Wireless is about to acquire some Michigan customers because Cricket is selling some of their Michigan licenses to Verizon, and Kalamazoo/Battle Creek will be the only new market Verizon will add, while the remaining licenses are for areas Verizon already serves. You might want to look into that if you live in Michigan.

Best phone: DONT BUY CRICKET!!! IT Stinks! buy virgin mobile or t-mobile to go instead! (Virgin mobile runs off of sprint) But stay away from ALL other prepaid carriers. I would recommend t-mobile to go. I am a teen too and that is what I have.

you know what my cricket service was about as good as any other company. and yes the best phone i have had with them so far was the 8900 but would like the 8910.
