Why is it $100 a month for 5 lines and not $75?  35*5=175 -$100, what am i missing?

Doesnt stack with autopay discount.

How is the porting experience from h20 to cricket?

Very easy. When I ordered the sim online (directly from cricket), I selected port my number, gave my account info (for H2O), they verified it immediately, and then sim was shipped. When I received the sim, I went online (before inserting sim), activated my line, and within 5-10 minutes, I was on cricket!!

Tmobile is 4 for 100

i have cricket for a few months already and they are great ! its better from sprint/t-mobile dono about verizon
you get 10GB LTE for $40 per month (with 5 lines) but if you are smart you can do what im doing... i start the month on the $20 plan, after using up the 2.5GB i switch to the $30 plan and i get another 5GB ..! after i use up the 5GB i switch back to the $20 plan and i get another 2.5GB !! at the end of the game i pay only $25 per month for 10GB LTE ! because i was half of the month on the $20 plan and  half on the $30 plan they charge a total of $25!
i dont know how many times you can change plan but 2 times for sure! i do that trick already for a few months

How do you change a plan?
cricketwireless.com/my-account click on your phone number drop down and then click on view details/change plan
or you can call 611 from your phone or 1-800-CRICKET (274-2538) to ask a agent to do it for you

btw i just spoke with them and they said that i can change plan 3 times per month !
that means that u can get 15GB LTE for approx $25 per month !
or 30GB LTE for approx $35 per month !!

I have cricket in boro park service is excellent as long as you can handle download speeds capped at 8 gbps, I switched my wife back in January when they had a promotion of $100 credit on lines ported from companies other then AT&T. Only problem was that I had AT&T so I switched to t-mobile with the $2 a day plan for a week and got the $100 credit.

Original AT&T I didn't use data so I don't know but I'm pretty sure it should be closer to 25gbps or possibly even higher.

you think the difference is only in the LTE speed ? What about the talk ?
