I see Cricket's CDMA network is being shut down tomorrow. Is Sprint going to acquire any towers from this? Some of them have to be redundant with AT&T's network. Also did Sprint get anything from the MetroPCS CDMA shutdown? It seems like AT&T and Verizon are gobbling up everything.
CricKet now has a reasonable amount of LTE, up significantly from the two cities that they had before (Las Vegas and Tucson): http://www.phonescoop.com/articles/article.php?a=11513 They have a version of the LG Connect 4G (they call it the Optimus Regard) and will have the GSIII soon. Data cards aren't yet available in the new markets, but tethering on a phone is available. As usual, all plans include unlimited everything-except-data; data speeds are throttled past 2GB, 5GB or 10GB, depending on whether you get the $50, $60 or $70 plans, and tethering is allowed on $60 and $70 options. Now if only CricKet had an inside source that provided information similar to what S4GRU has for Sprint...then I could figure out just how overblown CricKet's coverage maps are (I'm right on the edge of LTE coverage here, according to their map)...
Does anyone know how Sprint and VZW is doing in Pre-Order Sales? AT&T: http://www.macrumors.com/2012/09/17/iphone-5-pre-orders-set-new-sales-record-for-att/ http://www.macrumors.com/2012/09/17/apple-announces-over-two-million-iphone-5-pre-orders/
