Sounds good for people who don't want to be tied down with a big company contract!

Some people don't travel out of the coverage area.

People hammer Boost Mobile day in and day out for their "lack of coverage" or "subpar phone service", but when Cricket extends their nationwide coverage area by 3%, they're heralded for it? Nobody in their right mind who even does light traveling would use this as anything more than a house phone. Cricket and Metro, if you really want to take off, get a nationwide roaming agreement with Sprint. Yes, Verizon turned you down, but Sprint is being very proactive these days. If you won't negotiate now, you'll be bought out later.
