How to Get Into a Cricket Account

Cricket is a type of pay-as-you-go cell phone that doesn't require an extended service contract.

Instead, you put money on your phone that is converted into call minutes, as you need them. Once 48-hours have passed from the initial time you purchased the phone, you can get into your Cricket account online. This allows you to add minutes to your phone without actually using up existing minutes to make a call.

Open your web browser and visit the Cricket Wireless website.

Type the phone number for your Cricket Wireless cellular telephone into the box labeled "My Cricket Phone Number." Click "Next Step."

Type a valid email address into the "Email Address" box on screen. This will be used to contact you if there are any problems with your account. Type your desired account password into the "Password" boxes. Click "Next Step."

Click "Confirm My Account" to go to your Cricket Wireless "My Account" page. You can now log in to this account at any time using your Cricket phone number and password from the main Cricket Wireless page.
