Cricket Introduces Samsung Comment 2

~ Stylish Phone with QWERTY Keyboard Helps Keep Users Close to Family and Friends ~

San Diego – October 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Cricket Communications today announced the availability of the Samsung Comment 2, a speedy messaging phone that succeeds the popular Samsung Comment and offers cool features at a great price. The Samsung Comment 2 features a stylish look with a full QWERTY keyboard for customers who do a lot of messaging, emailing or blogging.

The Samsung Comment 2 features a rapid 480MHz processor and a large 2.4” display. A user-friendly web browser helps users stay connected to their world.  The built-in 2.0 Megapixel camera lets customers capture the action as it happens and share instantly via picture or video message. Store all your content on the optional removable memory microSD card. Play your favorite music with the build-in player and stream your content over stereo Bluetooth or via the 3.5mm stereo headset jack.

“With the Comment 2, family and friends are always as close as their phone,” said Matt Stoiber, senior vice president devices for Cricket. “Messaging is especially easy with the QWERTY keyboard and messaging shortcut keys. The built in social networking integration makes it simple to check your Twitter® or update your Facebook® to keep up with your friends on social media.”

The Comment 2 is preloaded with all the great Cricket Services users have come to expect including MyHomeScreen, Cricket Navigator, Cricket 411, MyBackup, Cricket Storefront, and more. The Comment 2 is the next in Cricket’s series of phones to include the Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS), an alerting network designed to disseminate emergency alerts to mobile devices such as cell phones.

At a suggested retail price of $89.99, the Samsung Comment 2 is available at Cricket company-owned stores and dealers. The Comment 2 can be activated on one of two Cricket monthly service plans including the $35 per month Cricket Basic rate plan featuring unlimited talk and text and no monthly contract; or Cricket’s Value rate plan for $45 a month with unlimited talk, text and mobile web with no monthly contract. Cricket’s rate plans feature all-inclusive pricing with no service fees and no overage charges. For customers, that means a predictable monthly bill, regardless of increasing usage, offered at a price point that fits into a value conscious budget.
