Cricket Wireless is following the footsteps of its parent company, AT&T.
According to reports, Cricket will stop activating non-HD Voice-capable and non-LTE-capable devices on its network starting January 19th. This is in line with their upcoming 3G network shutdown, which is expected to take place in February 2022.
Earlier this week, Verizon announced that they have pushed their 3G network shutdown to an indefinite date. But even though there is no specific date mentioned, the shutdown remains evident. Today, AT&T and Cricket Wireless have released more information about its 3G network shutdown schedule and it looks like it’s happening real soon.
Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint may be considered the four biggest wireless carriers in the United States in terms of size of customer base and vastness of network coverage. But when it comes to customer satisfaction, the Big Four’s performance leaves much to be desired. Well, at least according to the results of Consumer Reports’ latest survey.
Every wireless carrier out there likes to promote their deals because obviously, they want mobile users to go for their services and one up the competition. But if customers look hard enough, they can actually spot some hidden smartphone deals that are actually pretty good and are ripe for the picking. Where can one find these deals? Here’s a primer.
After a very competitive holiday period in which wireless carriers in the United States threw seemingly endless promos after promos, it seems that the price war in between network providers are beginning to subside. Indeed, we have seen some carriers raising back their fees and ending their special offers.
John Stephens, Chief Financial Officer of AT&T, certainly agrees. According to Stephens, the field of competition in the wireless industry seems to have stabilized and he expresses confidence about AT&T's chances of competing in the next quarter or so.
Cricket Wireless, a subsidiary of AT&T's, has confirmed that it will discontinue Muve Music beginning next month. In addition to that, the prepaid wireless carrier is also planning to get rid of its legacy CDMA network.
However, it is not all bad news. Muve Music will be replaced by the budding music streaming service Deezer, which will be made available to subscribers of Cricket Wireless starting January 31st.
Double data deals are aplenty these days. Indeed, major wireless carriers like AT&T and Verizon Wireless are offering them to their respective customers and to anyone willing to shift to a better deal. Well, who wouldn't be interested in a plan that offers twice the data?
Prepaid cell phone plans are on the rise. There's no denying that in the right circumstances, prepaid cell phone plans have the potential to save customers a lot of money on their cell phone bill each month. However, with all the different options out there, it can be difficult to know which prepaid cell phone plan to choose.
