Lumia 650 Looks Set To Arrive On Cricket Wireless

It was last year when Cricket Wireless stepped up to the plate by being the very first US carrier to offer the Lumia 640 smartphone to the masses, and it seems that the Lumia 640’s successor, aptly named as the Lumia 650 (reportedly the last Lumia handset in 2016), too, will follow in its footsteps.

Cricket Offers $100 To T-Mobile & MetroPCS Customers To Switch Carriers
