Is it fast? Worth the money? I'm thinking about switching.

I never post, but I figured I'd add my 2 cents. My bf and I both have Cricket and have been extremly dissapointed in it. I live in Michigan just for an fyi. Now, our internet is great, it's never slow, no matter if it's wi-fi or using data. However, the phone service itself sucks. If you look at their coverage area, ours should have no problems what-so-ever. But I hardly recieve phone calls, it'll just signal when I have a voicemail, with never actually ringing. Texts sometimes take a long time to go through, and more recently, our service cuts out randomly. We've had it about 3 months,when we first noticed it we called the customer service and was told there really isnt anything they can do, that we SHOULD be getting coverage. We've tried mutiple phones, thinking maybe it was a phone issue. Nope, still having the same problems. We will be switching next month. That's just our experience in our area. I've heard better reviews from other people.. I suggest buying an unlocked phone that you can take to a different carrier if Cricket doesn't work out for you. That way you can take it another carrier without having to buy another phone.

I've heard mixed things about cricket wireless. Straight talk is really good too, I think it's better than cricket.

We used to. It was like...six years ago. It was okay. Comparable to Boost.

I had it for years and loved it. I lived in CO at the time and it was decent service and cheap. I only switched because we moved to HI and Cricket wasn't available there at the time.
