    If you are using WordPress, go into ‘plugins’ and type in the word ‘mobile’. There are a lot of plugins that will help with this. You can also find this feature on WP Jetpack. Good luck!

    Brenda, Cricket Wireless, and ReachOut Wireless, are two different phone companies. However, you can purchase a smartphone, compatible with Cricket service with a music feature. This feature is not a part of the free government program and it will cost your extra.
