Cricket Wireless has announced it will begin selling the Lumia 630 on Friday, July 11, and the Windows Phone 8.1 device will be "free" after taking into account an activation fee discount combined with a mail in rebate.
Cricket says it will be the first US pre-paid wireless carrier to offer the Lumia 630 for sale. Normally the price of the phone would be $99.99 but the carrier has announced that it will wave its normal $50 new activation fee and will also offer customers a $50 mail in rebate in the form of a Cricket Visa Promotion Card. The discounts will be available both online and in Cricket's retail stores. The rebate offer ends September 11.
Just a reminder: The Lumia 630 comes in two versions, one with a single SIM card and the other with two SIM cards. Both versions only support 3G-based networks. Cricket Wireless claims the Lumia 630 supports "4G" but in fact it works on connections to its HSPA+ based network, while its sister device, the Lumia 635, supports 4G LTE networks.
In addition, Cricket Wireless is selling the Lumia 520 for $49.99 after a $30 new activation discount, and the Lumia 1320 for $179.99 after a $50 activation discount and a $50 mail in rebate.
What do you think of this offer and will it entice you to get the Lumia 630 from Cricket Wireless?
