The important thing to keep in mind is that we all hate cricket equally.

O rly? You're on the 25-40 dollar plans where you can not call other area codes? Or perhaps you think by paying 45$ a month for service which has ****ING DOTS FOR A COVERAGE MAP you are somehow beating the system. Well kudos.

Hey at least i dont get bitched at by every rich & stupid customer that walks in the store. Cricket offers great plans for people that dont want to pay the full price on the phone and want to suck on the company's tit even tho the company they have takes every chance to charge them up for stuff they did not sign up for. Yea i work for Cricket and no i dont have service with cricket, and comparing to what other dumb, retarded rich people pay, Cricket customers dont have to complain about an extra $25 dollar charge on their account. Sure the coverage sucks but it gets the job done. Brainwashed by VZW and AT&T about coverage and the "must-have" droid phones, but people dont want the top of the line phones. But i have heard that Cricket will als...

Let's dessimate your illogical conclusions which one would expect from someone who works for cricket as opposed to the smart man who actually franchises cricket. Rolling Eyes

Most areas aren't rich and most customers aren't rich. Infact most americans aren't rich the median income is around 30-40k and that is considered lower middle class. 'Rich' is an acronym for upper class being lower upper, middle upper, or upper upper which starts after the 250k bracket.

WRONG! It's 40$ for long distance.

That's cause cricket is the cell phone equivelent of a pinto!@


as the boost don't have a problem till the glitch in their bill payment while T-mobile and AT&T are solid and the happiest


What are you talking about? What problem? It's not boosts fault if you add the wrong amount or download ring tones which take away from your 50$ unlimited value. I already discussed tmobile a...

http://www.mycricket.com/cell-phone-plans. » I have cricket and though there customer service isn't great. It's good for those that don't want to worry about minutes and don't want to get into a contract. I live in a good cricket coverage area so it works well for me. I think it just depends on the person. Everyone is different and cricket is not for everyone, same as S/N, ATT, Verizon may not be for some. Just sayin'.

Wow yeah i do sell cricket and other companies but y'all r missing the point of my post but i don't care because everything i have read was just plain funny if y'all no the answer tell me but otherwise keep up the good stuff hell ill join in. Why do the same cricket customers comeback. 5 times a month a person comes in with a bill that is 3 times their normal rate for no reason at all and half the time they just buy a new phone start over and wait for it to happen again. WHY!!!!!! Laughing

I've always wondered that...

If they have no credit check and no contracts, what's stopping them from racking up a huge bill, canceling, and just starting up with another phone number?

They can't rack up anything it's prepaid service. Every single process they use is PREpaid for.

The only thing that I can think of, is that Leap (who owns Cricket, I believe) is actually looking to sell to another company. Whether that new company will allow Cricket to continue to flash phones is up for debate... As for phones that have already been flashed over, they should continue to work (most companies are not stupid enough to reverse something like that, considering the fact that it would piss off a bunch of their customers, not to mention cause ALOT of headaches).
