It is available immediately at Cricket retail stores nationwide, licensed Cricket dealers and www.mycricket.com.

“This phone is perfect for our customers who want a stylish, user-friendly mobile phone that offers everything they need at a very affordable price,” said Matt Stoiber, vice president and general manager of devices for Cricket. “The Domino strengthens Cricket’s already versatile handset portfolio, as the Company prepares to expand the line-up even further with the upcoming launch of smartphones before year’s end.”
“Kyocera and Cricket enjoyed great success with the Kyocera S1300, the predecessor to the Domino, and we’ve improved on that device to pack the Domino with even more features, but at the same low price point,” said Eric Anderson, vice president of sales at Kyocera Communications Inc. “For customers who want a highly functional and dependable phone at an entry-level price, the Domino is an ideal fit.”
