Cricket Wireless Makes Going Back to School Cool and Affordable with Simple, Transparent Plans and Hot Android Offers

ATLANTA– Cricket Wireless is giving back-to-school shoppers more reasons to smile, more ways to save and more opportunities for parents to relive the excitement  from the wireless past.  A recent poll commissioned by Cricket Wireless and conducted by OnePoll1 found that the average parent said they were just 11-years-old when they got their first piece of personal technology.  Fast forward to 2022 and the technology has advanced, but like their parents, the average age kids typically receive their first smartphone is 10-years-old.

Apparently, the more things change, the more they stay the same. This concept also rings true at Cricket. Sure, we’re approaching a new school year but, like always, our back-to-school offers continue to score high marks when it comes to savings. Check it out:
