Need a few more days to pay your monthly service charge? No problem. BridgePay gives you the flexibility to break your monthly service into two service periods with two separate easy payments.

How It Works:

To activate BridgePay, make the first BridgePay payment at a Cricket Store or by calling 1-800-CRICKET (1-800-274-2538).

  • When payment is made you will receive seven days of service.
  • Make the second BridgePay payment before the end of the seven-day period.
  • When the second BridgePay payment is made you will receive service for the rest of your bill cycle (in a 30 day bill cycle this would be 23 days).
  • If you don't make the second BridgePay payment before the seven days are up, you will not receive service for the rest of your bill cycle and your service will be suspended.
     

How to Determine When Your Second BridgePay Payment is Due:

If your first BridgePay payment is:               
Then your second payment is due:     
BEFORE your monthly pay date

7 days from the monthly pay date

Example:
Your pay by date is May 5. You activate BridgePay on May 3.
Using May 5 as the first day, count forward 7 days.
Your second payment is due by midnight on May 11.

 

AFTER your monthly pay date

7 days after the first BridgePay Payment   

Example:
Your pay by date is May 5. You make your first BridgePay payment on May 6.
Using May 6 as the first day, count forward 7 days.
Your second payment is due by midnight on May 12.

Making a BridgePay Payment:

  • To use BridgePay, you'll need to pay a $5 BridgePay activation fee, plus the minimum payment due for each line on your account.

Keep in Mind:

  • You can only set up BridgePay once per billing cycle.
  • You can't set up BridgePay if Auto Pay is on.
  • You can't set up BridgePay if you have a new line that hasn't been activated yet.
  • While your account is in BridgePay, you won't be able to complete the following tasks until you make your second payment:
    • Turn On/Off Auto Pay
    • Add a Line
    • Upgrade Device
    • Get a New SIM Card
    • Change Plans
    • Add/Change Features
  • If you don't make your second BridgePay payment within seven days, your service will be suspended. 
  • If your service is suspended you'll need to pay your full monthly total for the next month to restore your service. If you don't pay to restore your service within 24 hours (one day), you will be charged a $5 reactivation fee.
