Cricket Offering Bounty for Defectors from Other Carriers
We could see a pre-paid iPhone price war between Cricket and Virgin Mobile.
Sprint can't afford to get in a price war over a deeply discounted pre-paid iPhone but on the other hand, they also can't afford to lose a bunch of their VM customers.
They took on the Apple contract bc they were bleeding customers over no iPhone, now they are getting squeezed on their pre-paid side.
Damned if they do, damned if they don't.
Apple has totally changed the mobile industry.
Until the iPhoners quit frothing at the mouth, this is going to continue to be a stumbling block for all the carriers.
