A tipster on the Windows Central forums says that no-contract carrier Cricket Wireless will begin selling Microsoft's Lumia 650 phone with Windows 10 Mobile for free for new customers who switch their old phone number from any carrier other than AT&T.
Cricket is currently selling the Lumia 650 for $129.99 but has lowered its price down to $49.99 in recent sales promotions. Windows Central forum member "RumoredNow", who posted the tip states that this new free offer for certain users will be available both online and via Cricket's retail stores. Some of those stores could waive the normal $25 activation fee as well.
The post adds that existing Cricket customers, or people who add a new Cricket number or bring an old one over from AT&T, will still get the Lumia 650 at a discounted price of $49.99. There's no word on when this promotion will end. The post points out that buying the Lumia 650 from Cricket will lock the phone down on the carrier for six months, or for one month if the user signs up for the $70 unlimited plan. Keep in mind that Cricket Wireless has yet to confirm this promotion and that plans can change.
Thanks again to RumoredNow for the tip!
