Cricket PayGo Top-Up

PAYGo Activation

What is Topping-Up?

Topping-up is how you pay. When you top-up, you're adding funds to your account - you can add funds with a PIN, or you can add funds directly to your account. As you use your service, your account balance will be decreased. If you don't top-up before you use your funds, you may not have funds available when you want to use service. If you don't top-up before your account expiration date, your account will expire and you'll lose any funds still in your account. You have 60 days to top-up after account expiration, or your account will be canceled and you'll lose your phone number.
Remember - it's important to top-up!

How to Top-Up After Activation?

After you top-up and activate your Cricket PAYGo account, there are several ways you can top-up to enjoy uninterrupted service.

Auto Top-Up

Make it a no-brainer by enrolling today in auto top-up, which automatically adds funds to your account each month. Or if you decide later that you want to enroll, call Customer Service at 1-800-CRICKET.

Cards and PINs

You can buy top-up cards and PINs at many Cricket PAYGo locations. Top-up cards and PINs are available in values ranging from $10 to $65, depending on retailer and region. Find a store

On your Phone

You can also use *PAY (*729) to top-up with your credit or debit card.


Some Cricket PAYGo locations don't have top-up cards or PINs. At these locations, you can add funds directly to your account without using a PIN. You can top-up your account with amounts as little as $1 and as much as $300. Depending on the Cricket PAYGo location, you can pay with cash, check, credit card, or debit card. Find a store
