I have considered the jump, but I need the option to roam every once in a while, in which case my choice would be Boost...were it not for their lame phone selection.

I really like that Cricket offers 100 or 200 national roaming plans for an additional $5 to $10 per month.

I live in south Florida, and Metropcs has been here for about 7 years. So they have a deep footprint in the area. I know from having both services that Boost Unlimited is clearly much better. Using Sprint's network, there's greater reception indoors and less chance of dropped calls. However, people I know are drawn to Metropcs because of the wide handset selection they offer. If Boost Unlimited sticks around a while, their reputation would have a chance to grow.
