In an article about Cricket Wireless offering several new payment plans to purchase phones on their network, we mentioned that they would be carrying the new flagship Samsung Galaxy S6 device. At the time we had no pricing information or even a date as to when it would be available. Today however, thanks to our source over at Cricket Wireless, we have all of that information.

The new Samsung Galaxy S6 will be available on the Cricket Wireless network starting on April 24th and customers can purchase the device outright for a price of $649.99. Yes, we know, that’s a lot of hard earned cash to give up all at one time, however, there are other solutions.

With the new payment plans that Cricket Wireless announced just recently, you can get the new Galaxy S6 from Cricket Wireless for an initial payment of just $19.99, with approved credit. But what happens if you don’t have good enough credit to pay a little ole $19.99 fee to get a nearly $700, top of the line flagship device? Have no fear, Cricket Wireless also has the option of doing no credit check for you and have you pay an initial fee of just $49.99 and allow you to walk out the door with a brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 on their network.

Full details of this news can be found in the press release below that was sent to us via email that you can also read on their website.
