Add a Line

Need an additional line? (Or two or eight?) We've got you covered.

Choose Group Save eligible plans with each line and watch your savings add up. If you need even more lines, you can add them (up to nine lines total per account) after you activate your service.

If you are a current Cricket customer who is adding a new line to your existing account, you can add up to eight lines (for a total of nine lines on your account).

You'll pay a full monthly payment for your new plan and any features when you add a new line of service to an existing account in the middle of a billing cycle. You'll get a prorated credit for the unused days of the first partial month at the start of the next billing cycle. Learn more about billing cycles

Other Restrictions

If you have recently upgraded to a new phone, you will need to activate the phone before adding a new line of service. You can upgrade your phone for an existing line of service at any time.

If your account is suspended or in BridgePay, you'll need to pay the full amount due before you can add a new line or service.

Accessing Accounts with Multiple Lines

Anyone with the account PIN or the My Account username and password will have the ability to make account changes and access account information for all lines of service. This includes Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI), payment information, and profile information. You can turn on Account PIN security to limit certain account changes within My Account or the myCricket app.

Group Save Discounts

With Group Save discounts, you can save up to $70 each month when you add eligible lines to your account.

We have made changes to our Group Save discounts. When you change your plan, add a line, cancel a line, transfer a phone number to another carrier, or restore a canceled line, your discounts on lines 4 and 5 will be reduced to $20 each. In that case, you will begin receiving the new Group Save discounts on eligible plans at the start of your next billing cycle.

We now offer the Cricket Core Plan with even bigger savings. Get four Cricket Core Plan lines with unlimited data, talk & text for $100/mo. Data speed limited to max of 8 Mbps. Video streaming at SD quality (about 480p). Cricket may temporarily slow data speeds if the network is busy. Restrictions apply.
