Cricket, part of Leap Wireless, has revised all of its calling plans and they now include unlimited text, picture and instant messaging. The plans range from $35 to $60 per month. Cricket is also introducing nationwide roaming in two new plans. For $55, users get the unlimited messaging and all of Cricket's standard features, such as unlimited directory assistance calls, along with 100 nationwide roaming minutes. Stepping up to $60 buys 200 nationwide roaming minutes. These two plans are the first from Cricket to include nationwide roaming.

If they get a better selection of phones, I am ready to switch...

They accept foreign ESN's, but getting data to work is a b****... but it has been done. I know a few people using Verizon XV6700 on Cricket with full data and MMS working!
You have to be kidding me... Cricket uses only about a third of Sprints towers and get DEAD LAST priority behind Qwest, Virgin Mobile, etc. Good luck if you think it's a viable alternative to Sprint! You are trying to get data to work? Get a REAL carr...

When are they coming to Chicago?

I heard they are coming pretty soon. I want to sell them in my shop. I don't think that T-Mobile will like that.

a quick correction...and an observation...

phonescoop reported that you get the unlimited directory assistance with the $60 plan...not correct, you can add it but it's not part of the package...next, the real gain is in the lower plans...for $35 a month you can get unlimited local and unlimited text/picture messaging...add a $3 feature bundle and you get voicemail, caller id and call waiting...anyone doing prepaid, teenagers, parents of teenagers and anyone who doesn't need long distance should jump all over that deal...no one can touch that...and yes i work for cricket in Cincinnati, but the deal speaks for itself

Wow thats great.

Yet the reason why i put up with cricket sometimes.

They keep offering me things no one else can.
I never travel, and where i do go has cricket service (phoenix, az)

But its nice to know if i do go somewhere and have to use the phone, its not going to kill me.
