In order to access a Cricket Wireless account, customers need to register with the wireless provider's online service that lets a user pay a bill, view and manage account settings and information and set up a monthly automatic payment. The two-step process has easy-to-follow instructions and requires a Cricket Wireless phone number and a Cricket Wireless phone that is accessible and turned on with the SIM card in place. After creating an account at CricketWireless.com, clients can log in with the Cricket Wireless phone number.
Cricket Wireless offers clients a variety of ways to pay a bill. Customers can pay by using an online account, using a smartphone or tablet with the Cricket Wireless application, contacting customer support, using an automated system by phone or going in person to a Cricket Wireless store.
In 2014, AT&T relaunched Cricket Wireless after buying its parent company Leap Wireless, and it uses its nationwide network to provide strong service in most areas of the country. As of 2015, users can sign up for 500 MB, 2.5 GB or 5 GB data plans. When using the automatic payment option through "My Account" on the Cricket Wireless site, clients receive a credit that can be applied to an account.
Another option for payment is by using a prepaid card or a gift card. People who redeem these cards can pay a one-time payment through the site, in person or by phone.
