Simple Samsung SCH-r211 released in the US via Cricket

Only two weeks after launching the A100 and Kyocera S1300, Cricket has now outed yet another affordable phone: Samsung SCH-r211.

Like the other two phones released before it, the SCH-r211 is only a simple candybar. It works on the CDMA 800Mhz and PCS 1900Mhz bands, thus it can be used in all the Cricket markets in the US.  

The phone comes with “an easy to use interface”, supporting downloadable content like ringtones, ringback tones, wallpapers, games and applications (via Cricket Games and Apps).


 SCH-r211’s specs include:

  • 1.5 inch CSTN display with 128 x 128 pixels and 65K colors
  • HTML Browser
  • Instant Messaging
  • USB
  • 2MB of internal memory
  • Talk time: up to 3.5 hours
  • Standby time: up to 325 hours
  • 4.07 x 1.77 x 0.59 inches


Cricket retail stores and dealers are offering the Samsung SCH-r211 starting today, for only $89.99.
