Cricket Lowers Price of Plans, Including Two-iPhone Family Plan for $80/month

According to a news story on CNET, a new family plan bundle from Cricket gives you service for two iPhones for just $80 per month. Plus, it's also just lowered the cost of its individual plan from $55 to $50 per month. Its basic plans come with unlimited calling, text messages, and 1 gigabyte of full-speed data. Cricket is a no-contract carrier, meaning that you pay the full cost of the phone up front, but then aren't locked into a contract. And your monthly rate is lower compared to that when you buy a subsidized phone.
