Cricket Wireless today announced that its customers will be able to purchase either the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S at select retailers in 60 markets beginning June 22. The iPhone 4 8GB will cost $399 and the iPhone 4S 16GB will cost $499. Both can be used with Cricket's $55 unlimited monthly plan. The plan includes unlimited voice and text messaging, but it has a soft data cap of 2.3GB, which Cricket is calling a "fair usage policy." Cricket offers pre-paid cellular services, so the iPhone 4 and 4S are being sold without an annual contract.

Cricket and iPhone?

Will Cricket still keep the unlimited data or will they have a new plan just for iPhone?

1700 MHz markets left out

What I find most interesting about this is that Cricket is offering this only in markets that don't depend on 1700 MHz spectrum, which are quite a few in number. It makes sense given that the hardware doesn't support it, but why spend almost a billion dollars to bring in a single phone that will work only on a portion of its network?
They (Cricket) are morons riding the "crapple" train. 🤣

This CAN'T be a good thing....

What is there stopping this carrier and others like them from "flashing" another carrier's equipment now?

Mr/Mrs Customer signs up with a major carrier, buys an iphone at the SUBSIDIZED promo pricing with contract. Then simply stops paying the bill and takes the equipment that was paid for $199 cash and $450 with a now broken contract. How many people actually get the fact that the carriers pay full price for the phone and in the case where the contracts are not fufilled it is a huge loss.

One of the few recourses that the carrier has to protect its investment was to lock that ESN to the deadbeat account. Not to mention this could possibly fuel an already existing market for stolen iphones.

Apple is the honey badger in this who...
Cricket already flashes competitors devices to use on it's network.
Sprint bought 20 billion dollars worth of iphones for a $1 discount off each phone. How is cricket only selling them for $400?
