Cricket Wireless is doing something right. it used to be they had phones about a year or so after other carriers. Now other carriers are stealing their phones. started with the Zio Re Released by Sprint, and now the Ascend II Re Released by US Cellular.
If your talking about features they are virtally the same except some apps work on the ascend 2 that dont on the ascend one such as angry birds and barcode scanner and glow air hockey. Thats about it..
