Cricket Shares How Your Cell Phone Can Help Simplify Your Life

 

It's Simplify Your Life Week — an annual event dedicated to refocusing our lives and removing those things that make us feel anxious or overwhelmed. At Cricket Wireless, we're all about simplifying the wireless experience for our customers so they can stress less and smile more. In recognition of #SimplifyYourLife Week, we've compiled a few ways your wireless device can help bring more balance and control to your day.

  • Organization. Is your spirit animal a clutter bug? Or has your “to do” list turned into a “too much to do” list? Not to fear—there are lots of great productivity apps for professionals, students and momagers alike that can help you manage daily tasks and schedules as well as keep track of your progress. It's like having a personal assistant in the palm of your hand.

  • Investing. Did you know your smartphone can help fund your future? Thanks to a new collaboration with Cricket and Acorns, everyday Americans can grow toward financial wellness simply by using their wireless phones. In fact, Cricket customers who sign up for a new Acorns account and invest $5 will receive a $10 investment bonus in their Acorns Invest account1. Also, Acorns customers who make the switch to Cricket through September 6, 2021, will receive a $20 investment bonus. Additionally, following Acorns signup, Cricket will invest $1 into their customers’ Acorns accounts for every month their wireless service is paid.2 Find out more.

  • Fitness. According to the Mayo Clinic, almost any form of exercise can relieve stress. Your wireless device is not only designed to move with you, it’s also a great way to keep you motivated and accountable. Use your phone to monitor your heart rate and daily steps or set up reminders to drink water and update your food journal. There are also an arsenal of fitness apps that will get you dancing, running, lifting, spinning and more.

  • Online Shopping.While your phone won’t technically do the shopping for you, or pick up the tab, it can make your life much easier as you walk up and down the aisles or shop from home. There are plenty of shopping apps to help you save money and, hopefully, time.

  • Mobile Payments. Did you sometimes forget to pay your bills? Not a problem! Mobile payments are a convenient, easy, and secure way to manage your bills. Cricket customers, for example, have access to the free my Cricket App which allows them to make payments, check data usage, add features and more, directly from their smartphones.

  • Music & Entertainment. Plato, the ancient Greek philosopher, said, “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” In short, music is awesome! For many of us, our wireless phones are our go-to device when we need a quick entertainment fix—from listening to curated playlists that relax or empower to streaming inspiring movies and laugh-out-loud sitcoms. Rest assured, your wireless device is ready to help you tune in to any genre of entertainment that will get you feeling less stressed and ready to take on the world—or just the day.

These are just a few wireless tips to help you create the simplified life your mind, body and soul crave. Now, don’t overthink it; just start downloading…and enjoy.
