Cricket Ramps Up The T-Mobile Attack Marketing

If you thought Cricket WIreless’ previous ad was a doozy you best be checking out this commercial currently running in their service area. I won’t even waste time on words, just watch and comment below. Can someone tell me where this company even has service?

    never even heard of cricket so that shows how popular they are.CRICKET FAIL.

  • Noeleaser

    What a joke.. Cricket sucks..

  • Torybelloise

    Hah, wow. Where I live in Boulder, CO we have Cricket. They are actually pretty good with reception, but need to offer free roaming….

    • delusion ftl

      They do offer free roaming on Sprint.  And 5 a month roaming on vzw.

  • Kea J

    there is nothing wrong with the commercial..it is a great marketing add so to speak and I have tmobile..at least with cricket you know what your paying for and no surprise charges..no its not very popular in some areas but that is the whole point in advertising and creating reasonable plans for low income ppl or just ppl who want to cut expenses..Im thinkin about switching over..Paying 80 buck for unlimited everything and could be doing the same for 55..smh..Tmobile needs to step up their game b4 another merge happens within cell phone companies

    • noeleaser

      Cricket is NOT the same caliber of service. They are not nationwide. Their data speeds are nowhere’s near TMO. Thier phone selection is lacking. 90% of my custoners that switch to Cricket, come back within a month because it’s such a joke…

  • 21stNow

    Cricket has stores in the washington dc area. I can’t speak about the quality of their coverage.

  • Brittony

    Cricket has nationwide service and unlimited, free roaming on the Sprint network. You can checkout the coverage area, rate plans, and smartphone options at mycricket.com. Don’t be fooled, Cricket is growing faster than any other wireless company.

    • MS-tery

      Did someone pay you to say that?

    Please Cricket uses roaming agreements with other phone companites for ALL 3G DATA in all major cities.  AND They promise NO in-building or IN-car coverage anywhere for 3g data because they are ‘borrowing’ cell towers.

    I have tMo for myself, bought a cricket for my son figured cheap who cares if he looses it.  Absolutly no reception, He’s 10 the phone was just so I can keep track of him in the neighborhood….It was as good as haveing no phone.  He’s at my neighbors, and has no reception OUTSIDE in the yard???  When I called and tried to explain to there TERRIBLE foreign customer server…I had to hang up the first time, I just could not understand the women her english was as good as my Indian.  Called back and asked to cancel the phone…instead my plan was upgraded???!!!!!  Call again and I spend 15 minutes trying to convience them to cancel the phone It gets no reception in my area.   I tried to explain to them that my 10 year old doesnt need a roaming plan he can only travel so many blocks.  Ahhh they suck!!!  I was seriously thinking when I first got the phone if this is good I may just switch.   No way!

    Tmobile is dead in the water theyre losing customers faster than they can get them.thier parent company doesn’t want them, they’re losing $. If at&t can’t acquire them the company will likely be sold off in pieces. at&t has a network congestion problem in some prime markets like new york and san francisco. I phone customers have long been aware of this problem. It will only get worse with the merger. I worked at tmobile for 7 years, the service sucks which is why they can’t seem to hold on to customers. They are consistently #1 in customer service but #4 in over all customer satisfaction. That tells me that people want thier service to work(as advertised) and that customer is nice but not as relevant as tmobile thinks it is…our wants it to be. Good bye tmobile, good riddance.

      …and that customer *service*is nice but ……

      Yeah the idiots that run TMo (Financial and CS Centers) and the big shots in Belleview have their heads up their proverbial asses.  They think its all about winning the JD Power Award, … and everytime they do, … they take something ELSE away from their employees, … but they get bonus and go to Hawaii.  Asses.  ALL OF THEM.  I’m glad to be reading that they are starting to fail.  Their service has gotten worse in the past year, … and they will all lose their jobs after the AT T Merger!  GOOD

    I switched from Verizon to Wal-mart/T-mobile prepaid plan and I love it. Verizon will be missed; however, I’m not trying to file bankruptcy to communicate with others. T-mobile’s customer service is AWESOME! I was so impressed with their human-to-human service wherein I purchased my tablet through them to kill my internet service with Cricket. My BFF left Cricket’s wireless phone service years ago with no regrets, and its internet service is boo boo. A lot of my students have Cricket phones and they constantly complain about poor signal, no connection and bland customer service. When Cricket creates its own network towers, then they can challenge the big dogs. Until then Cricket is to T-mobile as Saturn cars are to Honda cars.

    • Rtl777

      TMo towers will be sold, … using all AT&T in the future with the iPhones and the crappy service.  Goodby Sidekicks, … Goodbye G-2, …. It is going to suck really bad

  • Ambee61488

    Tmobile sucks as soon as I can get away from them I will they are too expensive an my bf has cricket and gets better signal than I do in places where I should be getting it. Plus for android he pays $55 where as I also have one and I’m paying close to $100 and its not all unlimited

    • Hhjlhljh

      yea but thats why u see everybody that has cricket has the same phone they have no selections and there phones look to crappy

  • Jnites

    T’mobile is full of it, they do not offer unlimited everything, it’s false… They have a cap on internet usage on that “special,” but I guess it is SPECIAL, anybody that believes that tmobile is still good IS “special”…If you know what I mean.

  • Crybabies

    Its funny how people complain about T-Mobile’s plan not being unlimited.  Here is the fine print from the cricket website.  “Rate plan contains a 1GB data usage level. Once you reach your usage level your speeds will be reduced.”

    • Demi

      t-mobile does that as well

    Been a tmo customer for 10years. Tmo customer service is horrible. They over charge and add sh*t to my bill every month. I use all my minutes arguing with tmo customer service idiots. And i am not at all happy about the at&t merge. At&t is expensive and overrated! I am happy to switch to cricket in a month after my stupid contract is up with tmo. Same phones & same service in Fresno,CA. I wish cricket would help buy my tmo contract out so I can switch sooner!

    • Papi

      You can use ur minutes talking to reps are u an idiot or what

    • Bearlymisbehavin06

      Uh, you do not use personal minutes on your Tmobile wireless phone,you call 611 ! And from a home phone, they have free 800 numbers. I am having a hard time saying this, really, but who did you say was the idiot here? Cricket? you want some horrid service, I do not think you will be LOL when you get them from all I have heard. Me? ,us? We ran out of our contract this past Feb 2011,and I am on the EverMore Plus plan. Month to month,and We are paying  8.00 more than the 55.00 plan per line on Cricket,and we have all unlimited everything but minutes, which is at 1500,and barely get even near that number.We both have droid smart phones. We have no service issues at all with our phones. The month to month plan is cheaper than the contract plans, you buy the phone,and you can pay outright or break into 19 monthly pymnts,but you pay alot for the contract plans,as you end up paying way more than if you just buy the phone on this plan. Do your homework,and yeah, only thing I agree with is AT&T bites, first company I ever went to and started with in 1997.I would go prepaid before I go with AT&T.Oh,and I cannot help myself, but that is what you get for living in the armpit known as Fresno! Please do not move anywhere to the bay area.We don’t need no more odd people here.

      • Rod

        Well you can love TMo all you want, … but it will soon be AT&T and your rates will go UP, … and your services will change

      • Suziq012

        My daughter has had cricket here in freano ca for 2 years and i just got her their new Huawei Ascend smart phone & the service is great & the internet is really fast. I use to have tmo & it was terrable coverage & at&t’s web/internet service is terrible on their smart phones, it don’t load the pages right and takes forever if it loads at all before the phone just restarts.

    • ROD

      If AT&T Buys TMO, … You no longer have a contract.  Look at the fine print, … if they are sold they cannot hold you to the contract.  Cricket is fine, … I have a few friends already there from TMO and they love it!  I’m heading there as well!

  • demi

    T-Mobile lost me when they refused to do anything about the froyo update that made my phone completely useless. I’m happy to change to Cricket!

    I hope you like 0-1 bars when you switch to CriKet.

  • pineapple girl

    cricket is kind of frustrating i get no reception when i leave my area or barely when am in my room, even if i do the *228 thing..am going to try tmobile no contract plan and see how it goes…i never understand what  the costumer service agents are sayin either…

    • Dowhat35

      T-mobile sucks horribly. If you’re not getting reception though, it’s probably the crappy phone, not the service.

  • Im Just Sayin’

    I guess a lot of people have done their research. I have a Cricket phone (Huawei Ascend) and most of my problems come from the games I play from TeamLava ….’Resturant Story’, Bakery Story’, ‘Nightclub Story’, etc. The audio works faster than the visual, and it forecloses or freezes on you like an old 1990 computer. Just when you thought touch screen was great…….I guess you get what you pay for. A little advice for those that are looking for GOOD Android Smartphones with a low monthly bill…..IT DOESNT EXIST!!!!!!!!!!! So what I pay $55 a month! The 3G dropes whenever it wants to sometimes! Any Boost Mobile Customers? Im tired of this T-mobile and Cricket Debate.

    • Dowhat35

      My 3G drops on my samsung galaxy s a lot as well. I’m on t-mobile. So many issues I’ve had with t-mobile..and at&t… unfortunately, it’s pretty much all phone companies. Cell phones suck.

  • Harper-raymond22

     Hey guys and girls! 1st i will like to say that i had t-mobile for 7years and i recently brought the Glaxy phone and to tell u the trust tmobile is very expensive! I used the hotspot on the phone and in less then 15 hours i went over 2GB! HOW I DO NOT KNOW!! But i also brought a cricket phone for my son and he uses the internet all the time and downloads apps! But Cricket only gives u 1GB of 3G high speed internet! But look here once that 1GB is gone the internet will not slow down it will just be on a nother 3G network! and it will still be fast!!! TMOBILE SUCKS AND when March comes am buying me a cricket android phone! and also CRICKET HAS MUVE MUSIC!!!! SO SOON I WILL BE SAYING GOODBYE TMOBILE!! ALSO Cricket is in 85% Of the USA but if we keep buying the phones then of course it will be allround the USA! ALSO I HEARD IN THE SUMMER TIME 2012 4G will be on crickets network!!! AND THE monthly plans will go drop down to just $40 a month! O AND By the way if u dont wont a android phone cricket also has $35 a month plans! UNLIMATED EVERYTHING!!!!! NOW DATS WHAT I CALL THE WAY TO SAVE AND CUSTOMER SERVICE IS ALWAYS FAST!!!!!!

  • Randall_davis01

    cricket sucks, I’m trying to get my girlfriend to switch from cricket to T-Mobile because if you have a problem with your cricket service you can’t talk to someone from this country, you have to talk to someone from India, and you can’t understand what there saying, they try to sell you service on the phone instead of addressing the problem that you called for, and you end up talking to a supervisor that speaks even less English than the person you stared with; this co. is so cheap that they remind you of your next bill in the beginning of the month after you have already paid.what do they do with the millions of dollars that they make from people! they sure don’t put it back into there product!!

    • Shay

      So you have to talk to a guy in India and that ONLY happens with Cricket? I’ll have to tell the Indian dude I talked to about my t-mobile service and see if he agrees… All cell phone services have issues. All phones have issues. It’s hit or miss. You missed.
