    Recomendations on a replacement phone from Cricket Wireless

    I dropped my phone on a concrete sidewalk while walking. It did not do any damage to the screen except for scratches but the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are no longer working. I will need to buy a new phone with at least 16GB of memory since the LG Spree I had did not have enough storage space. Does anybody have any recommendations.

    Does the Cricket Wireless LG X Power have Near Field Communication/NFC for Android Pay?

    I bought an Alcatel One Touch Flint from Target for $50. Same price at Best Buy. It has 16GB. But no NFC. But I think it's the best $50 phone.

    I guess the question is, how much are you wanting/willing to pay? One thought is to get one of the Amazon Prime phones, that are discounted because of the ads Amazon puts on the lockscreen -- $59 for the Blu phone and $99 for a Moto G Play.

    The LG X Power has much weaker specs than the CDMA version. The best cheap Cricket phone is the Microsoft 640 for $10.

    I just went through this process also. Dropped my Alcatel Idol 3, cracked the screen, and the touch no longer functioned. I wasn't ready for a substantial investment in a phone yet, so I got the Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime. It was $50 when I bought it, but it's now $80 on Cricket's site. It has a fantastic screen, 16GB and all the normal features. It is missing NFC, which doesn't bother me much. For a $50 phone, I'm actually really happy with it.

    While the Lumia 640 is a nice phone, I can't recommend it. Windows Phone OS 10 has a number of issues, the number of apps available are shrinking (and has never had some popular apps), and there will be few upgrades as Microsoft is killing the Windows Phone OS. While they plan to create a new Surface OS that will work on phones, I don't see the Lumia 640 getting it. Microsoft has a horrible track record with not upgrading older phones, most recently when Windows 7 phones were made obsolete and worthless when they came out with Windows Phone 8 OS.

    I'm not sure if we're just talking super cheap phones here but the unlocked Moto G4 Play is a pretty decent phone. I just picked up a bunch of the Verizon Prepaid versions and I'm very impressed with them. You might be able to find one for around a hundred bucks if ya catch a sale or clearance deal.

    I'll second this, the 5s is still a really nice and relevant phone.

    Recently bought a Samsung Galaxy Prime Go Phone on sale for $70.00 & it's seems great for the price. (Mom loves it anyway!!) I am assuming you can use a locked Go-Phone on Cricket since it works fine with an H20 sim card?

    Pros
    -Expandable 16 gb internal memory
    -Great battery life & it is removable
    -5" Amoled screen
    -Excellent call quality-both ways
    -Lightweight

    Cons
    -Speaker on back, but decent volume
    -Mediocre camera

    Don't know about the Blu but the g4 play doesn't have NFC.

    Just a quick question, have you tried opening up the phone? Usually the WiFi/Bluetooth modules are a plugged board that may have just popped loose. If that is the case you can fix your phone pretty easy
