Cricket is lame. I don't think that this wireless company should even have a company. Pathetic!

They offer a decent product for a decent price that helps a lot of people that can't afford plans with other companies or don't qualify for a plan. What's wrong with that? I'm glad to see more competition, it keeps other cell phone companies more competative. Not to mention, eventually they could be the #1 cell companny. Who knows? Every company has to start somewhere and they've made a lot of good improvements over the years. I don't understand why people hate on companies for just offering a service. If you don't like it, don't use it.
