Hey! I work with cricket and so far the msgm8 has been great, we have not had any brought back with issues, and there are 3 reps in this store who actually want to have that for their own phone. It is priced great also! Only thing you will lose is your camera quality will go to 1.3 MP, it does not do video or MP3 and the internet speeds are not 3G.. But for a texting phone it is great!!
Doesnt look good when your selling a phone and you list more negatives then positives, but im sure thats what the usual criket rep is used to dealing with.
