Today Cricket Wireless announced two new large swaths of the U.S. that can access its services. The mid-Atlantic region spans from New York City to Richmond, Va. The southwest area now blankets parts of Arizona, Southern California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado. Cricket also announced some changes to its calling plans. Cricket's $40 monthly plan includes unlimited voice, long distance, domestic and international text and picture messaging, and nationwide coverage. New features include unlimited Web and unlimited 411. Cricket's $45 monthly plan adds unlimited email, unlimited data backup and 30 roaming minutes per month. Cricket's $55 monthly plan adds an additional 200 roaming minutes per month. The new plans will be available starting August 4. Cricket's pre-paid competitor, MetroPCS, recently altered its calling plans, too.

I give them 2 years to merge with Metro PCS

Just wait and watch. In about 2 years they will be merged with Metro PCS and create a large footprint of unlimited calling.
I can see this happening. Good point.
It pretty much only makes sense. Most of their territory doesn't overlap so they would merge quite nicely. When you look at either one of their coverage viewers online, you can see that if they were to just fit together, they would be a pretty descent...
