That's funny. I'm not the most up-to-date on ATT's network, but I'm pretty sure they don't have VOLTE working nationwide. It's going to be kind of hard to just flip a switch where millions of CDMA phones suddenly do their voice calling over a GSM network. And even if they do have blanket VOLTE coverage across the US, I seriously doubt that most cricket phones support it. I imagine that in 3 or 4 years they can have Cricket's customers all migrated over to their network, but that's hardly overnight.

If they really wanted to disrupt the low end market...

they would unlock the millions of att phones out there for people for a fee.

$20 or $30 then they wouldn't be forcing people to break the law (class action anyone?) and they could make more profit in one lick than they are throughout the entire year of an AIO line.
How would that make them money. They lose money everytime they sell one of those phones.

By disruptive....

He means competing with Straight Talk/TracFone for that $45/month plan. It would be nice if they went REALLY disruptive and did something like $10/mo for Calls/Texts and $20/mo with a gig of (3g even) data.
