Muve Music

Muve Music

Music lovers can now purchase a monthly wireless service that includes unlimited music (full track downloads, ringtones and ringback tones) plus nationwide talk, text, and web via the $55 Muve Music plan from Cricket. There are no download fees or monthly music subscription costs--it's all included in the monthly flat rate.

Muve plan

When you're ready to turn off your tunes and talk instead, you've got 1000 minutes of U.S. calling, plus unlimited text, picture and video messaging. Stay connected with Google Mobile Services, full HTML browsing and exclusive Android features, including access to apps from the Android Market. Plus, you get caller ID, voicemail, call waiting, 3-way calling, and up to 500 MB of data available at 3G speeds.

With Muve Music, Cricket has eliminated the complexity found with other digital music services--there are no cables, no drivers and no synching required. Everything happens over Cricket's nationwide 3G network to deliver a robust music experience to music lovers on the go. The service has an ever-growing music library of millions of recordings featuring artists from 55 record labels.

The Muve Music plan includes the following features:

icon get
Get Music

icon my
My Music

Once you've downloaded the music you love, My Music automatically organizes it for you. Listen to songs, create playlists, cut Ringtones and manage your music experience. Customize your listening experience on the fly by using Superplay to cue up what you want to hear next. Then seamlessly jump back into your song list. You are in control.

icon dj

My DJ creates playlists for you and sends them to your phone. It does all the work, while you just enjoy the new music. My DJ Playlists are automatically updated so you're always in for something new. If you like a playlist just the way it is, just duplicate and rename. Now it's yours to customize.

icon social

With My Shout Box you can send and receive select songs or entire albums. When your friends Shout to you, just download, listen and respond. Unlimited music sharing, free and legal.

icon shazam

Ever hear a song somewhere that you didn't know but liked? Press Shazam to identify the title and artist instantly. Then download the song with the touch of a button. The Muve Music difference is that you can choose to download not just the track, but the entire album. No switching programs, no inputting passwords, just one touch and it's on your phone. It's that easy.


Because plans are pay-as-you-go, you have to top-up your Cricket PAYGo account balance in order to have funds available to use Cricket PAYGo services. When you receive your phone, go to to activate service. While there, you can enroll in auto top-up, which automatically adds funds to your account each month, or you can choose to buy top-up cards and PINs at locations nationwide or dial *PAY on your phone to top-up with your credit or debit card.

Topping-up can also extend your Cricket PAYGo account expiration date, which applies to all funds in your Cricket PAYGo account. Each top-up makes those funds available for use for a limited time. When you top-up, your account expiration date is reset to a new expiration date based on your top-up amount or your current expiration date, whichever is later.

Cricket service is easy for everyone to use, since there is no complicated phone bill at the end of the month, and easy for everyone to purchase, since long-term contracts and credit checks are not required.

Android Gingerbread Operating System

Android Gingerbread

The Samsung Vitality runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread)--the fastest version of Android available for smartphones yet. It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.

Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.

The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.

The Vitality also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

Google Integration
  • Android Market for browsing and downloading thousands of free and paid apps
  • Pre-loaded Android apps: Browser, Calculator, Calendar (Google or Corporate), Camera, Clock, Contacts, Email, Gallery, Messaging, Music, News & Weather, Phone, Settings, Video Player, Voice Dialer, Voice Search, YouTube

The phone itself is great as an MP3 player and for Wi-Fi apps. If you are planning on using this as a phone, don't bother. I purchased this phone from an authorized dealer whom also activated for me. The number that was activated on the phone was not the number that showed up in the status of the phone itself. After Cricket giving me a new number not once but twice. They still could not get the phone to work properly. Then they finally got around to porting my real number which got totally messed up. We are now on the 3rd help ticket with their help department, after being told by the manager that the previous help ticket numbers did not exist in their system. We are now going on 10 days with a phone that does not work at all as a phone. On a good note I can tell you how to activate the phone and reset it in my sleep and even how to manually program it. I bought this phone for the Muve Music plan. I thought it would be fun for my daughter. However Muve will not work across a wifi connection and is absolutely totally useless at this point in time. I am currently looking at turning it into a VOIP phone with Nettalk and just using it for an mp3 player and the wifi apps. I don't think I have ever had such pathetic service from a company in my entire life. I was debating between this phone and the Optimus V. I made the mistake of going with a company for the music service and not with the company that I previous had that I knew to be reliable. Cricket has told me that it will be up to 7 days before I may be contacted with help on this ticket. I will update this review at a later time to see if this ever gets resolved. All that I can say is that I am a very patient person that is considered by most to be very tech-savvy.Read more ›

Okay so many buyers have complained about the paygo muve music plan for this phone. I agree that it is not the best plan to get with cricket so what I did was activate the first month as paygo plan which has LIMITED call time minutes and web useage. After my first month was up I called cricket and asked to switch my rate plan to the regular SMARTPHONE UNLIMITED PLAN with unlimited calling,minutes,and web. Now at first the customer service Rep told me that the SAMSUNG VITALITY is a Muve music phone only and that I had to have a Paygo plan but I INSISTED that it wasn't true! Their own website clearly states that the SMARTPHONE PLAN and the MUVE MUSIC plan are compatible with this phone. After a few minutes on hold, the Rep informed me that indeed I can get the unlimited smartphone plan. I was right! I HAD TO CANCEL THE ACCOUNT THOUGH! Now I was able to keep my same number but I can't say that everyone will but atleast you get the plan you want UNLIMITED!

I decided to switch services and was very skeptical about buying a phone through a different site other than cricket. When I read the reviews on the Samsung Vitality I thought it wouldn't hurt to try it out. I purchased this phone on and I am very happy I did. I received my phone very quickly and ever since the first day I turned it on I fell in love with it! It's the perfect phone for me and I love the music dowloads as well as the fact it is an android phone. The phone only works with the $55 muve music android plan through Cricket wireless but to me that is a steal! I would deffinately suggest to anyone wanting a great android phone, the Samsung Vitality! Great phone, great price, easy to use!! Love it!

I bought this phone for my daughter to use strictly as an android device with no phone service. She absolutely loves this device. It does everything an ipod touch does for a fraction of the price. She can download apps from the android market, take pictures, listen to music from pandora, watch videos off of Netflix, send and receive text messages to any cell phone by using Text+ free, and even make phone calls (if you pay for the minutes through text+). She only really uses the device at home and we have a wifi connection. It's a win win for us. She gets to text her friends and I don't have to pay a monthly fee.

So much better than my last cell phone. I had a strait talk with the $45.00 a month unlimited and it was so lame compared to this phone. I can download as much music as I want plus have unlimited internet for $55.00 a month through Cricket minus sales tax and all. I love this phone. I can't even begin to list all the cool features, it would take to long. I'm thinking about getting one for my mom.

My phone died a couple days ago, I had an LG with cricket. It was decent enough, but lacked flash and couldn't play Netflix, and finally, the touchscreen died. I thought about switching to another service that was even cheaper, but their only android model didn't have good reviews. I almost didn't get this because there were mixed reviews about whether you could use your existing unlimited smart phone plan that Cricket offers for $55/mth. I didn't want to pay $65 for the muve plan (which is what an existing customer will have to pay a month to switch to the muve plan), but I thought I'd wing it anyway, based on another review where the person said after some tooth-pulling they were able to get the regular unlimited data plan. I figured I could always return it if it didn't work out.

So as an existing customer, I just called them, and when they asked for the ESN they activated the phone, no problems whatsoever. They noted that it was "compatible" with the muve plan, but said I could just continue using my unlimited plan at $55 instead of switching to the muve plan at $65. Obviously, I opted to stick with my regular plan.

So, for existing customers, I would say you shouldn't have any problem keeping your regular smart phone plan at $55, and if the customer service agent balks, hang up and call back until you get one who knows what they're doing. I can't speak to new customers, but when I checked into activating the phone as a new customer online, it did honor the $55 rate for the muve plan, so I don't know if that's just a special deal linked to this particular phone or what, but I didn't end up going that route.

As for the phone itself, I love it!
