needs to swallow their pride
Mar 28, 2011, 5:16 PM
in the Cricket forum

With AT&T buying T-Mobile, Cricket needs to swallow their pride and merge with Metro. Plus they'll get all the T-mobile people that don't want AT&T (and AT&T won't want either). It would push their number by my estimation to somewhere in the range of 15 million? (agree, disagree?). Then Sprint can stop saying it's a monopoly and maybe just maybe people will remember that Cricket is still in business. (VZW, AT&T reps don't even know ...

I think it's a combination of things. Cheap phone lineup, (The Zio is running Android 1.6). Lack of nationwide network service. No real family plans. If you have 2 phones the least expensive you can add a 3rd is for $25-$35. People say it's cheaper but if you have 2 phones with regular plans and add a 3rd you are paying $135 for all 3. I have 5 phones on Verizon for that ...

Wow I would hate to have you help me with my ATT service. Do you know anything about Cricket? Let's start with the speeds. Cricket 3G 1.5 mbps MAXIMUM AT&T 3G = 4 mbps PEAK Cricket is not available everwhere! AT&T's Edge has the same speeds as Cricket's 3G and it is available EVERYWHERE. AT$T also has company owned call centers and 24 hour tech support. Have you ever tried to get help with your ...

Nobody from Cricket can BB message you because Cricket doesn't carry Blackberry's. They were supposed to launch one in April but once again they couldn't deliver. I would wait to see if Metro and Cricket can get a deal done, if not then Sprint will probably buy Metro and then Cricket will be left out in the cold dying a slow death. They closed 10% of their corporate stores at the end of the first quarter. ...

Wow that is awesome that you found internet as fast as your old dial up! Is Cricket still advertising 400-600kbps? While all the MAJOR carriers are at 1.5 mbps. By the end of the year VZ and ATT will be at least 7.2 mbps! ATT leaked that they will be 14.4 mbps in a lot of spots. But dial up works. and heck it saves you $20 a month. That is awesome ...

I made $50,000 as an assistant for Cricket. My base was $34 and the rest was bonuses. But it wasn't worth it. Dealing with all the customer service issues they have. And think about are dealing with all the people that are on welfare. It's like the DMV and Welfare had a baby and named it Cricket.

It's not garbage if it's facts! They had to go joint with GhettroPCS just to get RIM and Android to sign off on it. Just be who you are and go back to the kiddie table cuz the adults are busy talking real business. lol :lol:

If you want the crappiest phones ever then go to Cricket. Their $200 phones are the ones that Verizon ATT and Sprint give a way for free. You can't send mass text messages. Most of your forwards won't go through. It will send "duplicate text messages"

hahaha in what way? other then talk with no guaranteed texting in roaming areas? No MMS in any extended coverage area! no WAP...yep sounds way better then Sprint. This was the problem with working at Cricket everybody is in their own little Cricket world. Cricket is talking about their 3G going 1.5 MBS, While ATT, Verizon, and T-Mobile talk about 7 MBS and 21 MBS within the next year. Cricket will be MetricketPCS ...

I just left Cricket and was talking with some of my former co workers and they're not worried about Cricket going completely out of business. Leap is running out of money to sustain Cricket. They are trying a lot of different things including taking away the first month free and adopting MetroPCS' philosophy of charging the first month up front. Cricket didn't purchase Pocket they just went in to "partnership" with them. It's like their ...

I swear the next Cricket customer that comes in and tells me that they can't pay their bill and needs an extension...I will say "that sounds like a you problem not a me problem" :D
