Thousands of local teens are headed off to college in the coming weeks. That means its time to decorate dorms and get all the supplies needed to make university a productive and fun place.
Instead of running around from store to store or trying to find the right thing online, local wireless stores have it all (okay, maybe not furniture with matching bed cover). Whether your student is looking for a new phone, ways to watch TV, headphones, or new speakers, San Diego's Cricket Wireless stores have the best new tech gear for different types of students and different budgets. Gear up for college with the following tips:
- Stay connected with a brand new smartphone. Phones continue to radically improve and offer more and more functionality to help students stay connected with family and friends, as well help them conduct research for school projects and keep them entertained when they need some “down time” from all the school activities. Cricket has smartphones for any budget – from the latest and greatest top brands, with some even being offered for FREE. Only available at Cricket, the Alcatel PULSEMIX is a hit with young adults. It has a large 5.2" HD screen, sleek all-black design, powerful quad-core processing power and dual cameras, both with flash. Mix, match and boost your PULSEMIX with exclusive SNAPBAK™ covers that bring added power, light, sound and life to your phone. And it’s just $29.99 if you bring your number to Cricket.
- Watch TV - DIRECTVNOW. No need for university supplied cable and installing a bunch of equipment. Sign up for Rules Free TV that lets you stream your favorite live sports, on demand, premium channels, popular shows and hit movies right to your compatible tablet, smartphone or TV. It’s the experience you love, without the limits you don’t.
- Keep it quiet with Earbuds. Study hall and other public places can be noisy, but even the nicest of dorm mates can be quite talkative or snore loudly. Pick up a pair that suits you perfectly to keep the sound you love (music, TV, podcasts and audio messages from mom, of course) in while pushing unwanted commotion and hullaballoo out. These MAGsmart Bluetooth earphones are powerful, but so light you’ll forget you’re wearing them.
- Share your jams with Wireless Speakers. Share all the sounds you love with others by hooking up small, yet powerful, speakers--like the Drench Wireless Waterproof speaker --that you can bring with you anywhere you go and can be used inside or out.
