Looks like Leap is abandoning it's "Original" Cricket scheme

Originally Cricket only sold through its own stores, requiring payment thru its payment centers rather than using the ubiquitous "prepaid" approach. I would think Leap will sell more phones and make subscribers happier, while leaving many original Cricket stores steamed with this new distribution model.
You are right. However, everyone knew this would happen. It was only a matter of time.
