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 it would be too expensive to change over all the technology. Verizon hardly even realizes that Cricket still exists. I think the most intriguing option would be Sprint and combining Cricket with their Boost model. But I sure don't miss hearing "my phone done took a dump on me" every day lol
