Cricket Wireless has announced today that it will be carrying the Samsung Galaxy S4. In a press release, the carrier has said that this latest flagship Android smartphone will be launched on the 7th of June. The device will be available in Cricket retail stores as well as through the carrier’s online store. The device will be compatible with Cricket’s LTE network which is available in limited markets: Philadelphia and some parts of Nevada, Texas and Arizona.
Cricket will be selling Galaxy S4 for $599.99. Alternatively, customers can pay a $55 down payment and pay the rest in equal monthly instalments. Cricket’s variant of the Galaxy S4 isn’t different from what the other carriers are selling, though it does feature Cricket Muve Music service, which allows users to download songs and ringtones as much as they like without incurring any extra charge on their monthly Android rate plan. So if you’re a current or prospective Cricket customer waiting to pick up the new Samsung Galaxy S4, June 7th is the date you mark on your calendars.
