Is anyone thinking Cricket will go under?

What if Leap doesn't find a buyer and just closes it! I have 4 cricket phones!

No. I think Metro will get them if they are not outbid. They tried to acquire Leap in the past and were rebuffed. It makes perfect sense. I am just hoping that none of the Big Four (well...the Big Two and smaller two) is allowed to buy them.

I just don't want to lose unlimted talk and text for $25.

You shouldn't. Besides, if you read the news articles posted on this site, you'll see that Cricket just bought Pocket Wireless in Texas, I doubt Leap is going to close Cricket anytime soon.

But remember,Alltel bought Cellular 1 in some areas, Just before VZN raped them Evil or Very Mad

I just left Cricket and was talking with some of my former co workers and they're not worried about Cricket going completely out of business. Leap is running out of money to sustain Cricket. They are trying a lot of different things including taking away the first month free and adopting MetroPCS' philosophy of charging the first month up front. Cricket didn't purchase Pocket they just went in to "partnership" with them. It's like their Portland Market...It says Cricket but is funded by LCW or something like that. Metro will buy them for sure but having left Cricket and now selling 3 of the big 4 carriers, Cricket is light years behind and losing 64 million last year doesn't help. Don't worry about ATT and T-Mobile buying them because ...

Lol on the 23rd cricket is going nationwide. No worries my friends we will be here for a very long time. Our coverage will be better then Sprint. Cool also a whole lot more to come this summer.

hahaha in what way? other then talk with no guaranteed texting in roaming areas? No MMS in any extended coverage area! no WAP...yep sounds way better then Sprint. This was the problem with working at Cricket everybody is in their own little Cricket world. Cricket is talking about their 3G going 1.5 MBS, While ATT, Verizon, and T-Mobile talk about 7 MBS and 21 MBS within the next year. Cricket will be MetricketPCS or CrickoPCS by July

izdog13 Sounds like a dog that needs to get fixed.

Sprint = Verizon in network coverage.

Good luck, little Cricket. Good. Luck.

I just have to laugh at that. We just brush them off at my provider. They bit a little bit in the 4qtr but like we suspected our pace on our prepay market has gone back up. Has actually increase some. Their just annoying like the actual insects. No worries here.
