Cricket Debut User Reviews and Opinions

    My Samsung’s charging port wore out after just over two years, ridiculous. Then the phone got disabled completely today, water contact (I won’t go into the embarrassing details) so I bought the Debut, lowest price “upgrade” at local Cricket store. A no-name phone for sure – who makes it? Seems to do basic functions inc. camera okay at quick intro.
