Today Leap Wireless announced that its Cricket Wireless services will become available at four of the nation's largest big box electronics retailers in time for the holiday shopping season. Leap didn't name the retailers, but said their identities will become known over the next several weeks. The retail expansion will cover 1,000 new stores. In addition to the new distribution channels, Cricket is set to unveil two new PAYGo plans that will only be available from these retailers. A $40 plan will offer unlimited talk, long distance, access to Cricket's extended calling area, domestic and international text and picture messaging. A $45 plan will add unlimited mobile web and directory assistance. Both plans will include all taxes and fees, meaning the total monthly bill will be either $40 or $45. Last, Cricket will also be offering a new unlimited wireless broadband plan for $50 per month. This plan also includes all taxes and fees. Users of Cricket's broadband plan will not need to pay activation fees.

Nothing really new here - Boost Mobile has been doing this all along

Hey, this is Rachel from Boost Mobile, just wanted to say that there is nothing really new here. Boost was the first no contract wireless service to put consumers’ interests (and wallets) first. We created the model for a cell phone plan that has no telecom taxes and fees. And, Boost Mobile is still a better value. Why…

- TRUE nationwide coverage and dependability … 4,600 cities and towns on Cricket? Boost covers more than 17,500 cities. And, we have fewer dropped calls than Cricket.

- Boost Mobile is sold in more locations offering better accessibility to consumers, nearly 20,000 stores across the country and counting.

- Boost ranked “among the best” earning five out of five power circles in Ov...
Greet pitch RachelG. Now if only Boost could develop some better phones and stop with the "Chirp Chirp, where you at?" commercials thats drawing customers away (people don't want chirp anymore). Really the phones though. Boost needs a better line-up. ...
Boost is atill horrible. Pageplus cellular is the Best! On the best network and you can bring pretty much any verizon handset. No better value talk text and 200 plus pics for 39.95 Boosts slow web service and iden network both suck!!

Wish Metro Would Do This!

I wish Metro would include taxes. I pay $50.46 for a $40 plan with the business lines. The tax man is out of his mind! Shocked
I wish a lot of businesses would include taxes in they're prices, things would be a lot simpler that way. But for some reason only bars & movie theaters do.
Metro Pcs has horrible coverage and quality. Have you checked out pagepluscellular.
