Cricket Wireless Wants You To Say “Hasta La Vista” To T-Mobile

Oh Cricket Wireless, you so funny playing off the Terminator movie line. So inventive of you. This ad found by one of our astute @TmoNews Twitter followers comes on the heels of a large number of you seeing a similar message coming across in a new Cricket Wireless television commercial proclaiming T-Mobile dead. I’ve tried to locate the commercial online but have been unable to do so and there is no link to a marketing page on mycricket.com. Is it a little early for Cricket to be attacking T-Mobile? What say you?

Thanks Batman!

    wtf is cricket wireless lol

    • me telling you

      a phone company in the USA… =__= *

    • Anonymous

      it is small company that does unlimited everything. usually from $30-$60 a month depending on the service. The service also includes the following features…

      Limited Coverage in only the metro market…example: Nashville, Memphis, but not in between.
      Unlimited dropped calls
      Junk phones
      And not being able to use your phone outside the metro area unless you pay for extra minutes to roam off of. another service

    • Yellow One

      i hope u guys replying to this know that he was being sarcastic -______-

  • Maschwar77

    Yeah, move on.  Nothing to see here.  Cricket sucks so badly in my area as to be totally unusable.  Fluctuating signal, dropped calls.  Yeah, I’d go with Straight Talk or Net10 over cricket any day.  T-Mobile ain’t dead yet!

    • Jaye Leno

      Cricket sucks because they probably resell minutes from AT&T!!!

      • Maschwar77

        Well, Jaye you’re wrong.  Cricket actually uses CDMA and roam on to Sprint which also uses CDMA.  AT&T uses GSM.  Perhaps you might also want to do a little homework before posting something wrong. 

  • henry

    this is some bad PR… they r just trying to get there some what of a name out there… #epicfail

  • j-man

    WOW Cricket wireless! lol They make me laugh because their service is not great.  I’ve had friends that were on cricket and would tell me that they would not get phone calls and they didnt get service when I was right next to them, and I have T-Mobile.  She also said that they would keep increasing the bill a little every month, that she was paying more than being on contract!!! BTW my friend that had Cricket decided she couldnt take all of the this from them, that she switched to T-Mobile

    I would like the savings but the service is not worth it. I’ll gladly keep paying T-mobile. 

  • hellsh666

    Cheap green ass!!! Unlimited 10 miles around Chicago!

  • Habbit

    Cricket’s service coverage is so terrible I refuse to believe the company actually even exists. 

    • OMF

      I have had Cricket for over a year and traveled to NY, VA, TX, GA and had no problems with reception. I just traveled to Mexico and it’s the cheapest service while calling the USA, $0.25/min vs. $0.99 for Verizon/ATT/T-Mobil/Sprint. Phones have been a problem, especially smartphones, they are slow. Price is great, service OK and phone could be better. Overall I’m a happy customer, I have been saving a lot $$$. 

  • Scarf22

    Cricket is so retarded.  They have the WORST network in the country.  Tacky…and desperate advertising.

  • philthy

    I think its funny that they are coming after tmobile being that tmobile has the cheapest nationwide plans. I will never switch to a prepaid regional carrier.

  • philthy

    I actually work for tmobile and have ported a boatload of cricket customers to tmobile. So the saying should be reversed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/SKRILLDILLY Skrill- Dilly

    Cricket can stick it….I like to travel with my phone…I will pass on regional bullshit carriers with 2nd rate devices and lesser networks…This is a classic case of the Rabbit poking the sleeping bear with a stick..Not a good idea.

  • Sirjakeyjake

    Saw it last night on TV.  Ridiculi.

  • Cradleofchaos

    I thought this was going to be the ad I saw last night but I dont think it was the same one..

    The cricket commercial voice was saying “Tired of waiting to see what will happen to Tmobile? Dont wait around and get left behind..” Or somewhere along the lines of that.. Its for their new deal.. Bring in your old phone, and get a new android phone.. I found the marketing page on theirbwebsite but the video was not on their yet.

    Cricket isnt rlly that bad

  • David Rosen

    everyone’s bashing cricket on this thread, which they should be… but when i’m standing next to my friends with at&t and verizon, they’re the ones with service, and me and my t-mobile friends are stuck on edge or nothing.

    • Tigger

      Last I checked, edge is service. It’s not HSPA+, but it’s better than nothing.

    • Anonymous

      And EDGE is not a whole lot slower than Verizon’s 3G. …or AT&T’s 3G when their network’s congested.

I live in da part of town were da white people live nd trust me most of them talk like dis it’s not only ghetto people white like me,Hispanics, African Americans talk like dis if u ever been to los Angeles then u shud kno wut I’m talking bout

        • Bob

          What?  It’s more like laziness

        • Ramiro

          I am! bye bye tmobile hello Cricket!! =) my plan is to buy the htc Evo 3D and unlock it to be used on Cricket’s network, it’s network it’s actually faster than Sprint’s in my area, the only downside would be that the coverage isn’t that great when you travel which I rarely do so it’s all good!

        • kl

          Good luck with just 1 gb of data. LOL

        • Respawn

          Anyone understand a word of that? :/

          In all seriousness, how many of you are switching to Cricket. Come on, now. Be honest!

          This made me laugh. I just have to know if it’s actually working! :p

        • Tigger

          Ha ha dik yourself. Don’t try to drag all of LA down because you think your ghetto homie speak is all gravy. I was born and raised in LA and know how to read, write and speak proper English that the masses can understand. And, no, queen lazy, your ghetto homie speak is only by the lazy, for the lazy. Drive to Pacoima or Arleta and talk like that, you won’t lady last five minutes.

        • Nicole02

          Funny u say that I work in arleta and so far I been surviving here without a problem for the last 6 months

          no you wigger. not everyone there talks like that. what is even worse is you are intentionally TYPING like that. By the way NOT every black person is AFRICAN american. They do come from other countries you know and would be insulted if you called them african american

  • Jarrod

    Cricket isn’t even important, they have worse service even more worse the AT&T.

  • Craibailey

    I know this is about Cricket Wireless, but what you Guy’s think of Simple Mobile ?

    • http://ashn.myopenid.com/ Ash

      If t-mo goes down, simple mobile goes down too, as they use t-mo towers.

    • Tlalnawaz

      i hVE SIMPLE mobile its perfect and really cheap with hspa + 4g i love it

  • Anonymous

    lol, nice try, but cricket says they can’t open accounts in my area. I won’t even be saying hello to these fools.

  • http://ashn.myopenid.com/ Ash

    Haha, I do however hear the sound of crickets……

  • Jonathan3579

    I just heard a commercial on the radio today with Cricket saying that if we are feeling left behind we should switch to them. LOL.

  • 4G_or_not_4G

    I tell you what, TMobile’s customer service is starting to feel like AT&T’s customer service.  The only reason I didn’t switch carriers is I don’t like the others…however if they keep pushing it, I will leave!

    • Goukisan

      um dont worry soon you will be at&t lol
      i just find it funny that when someone doesnt get what they want(especially when they arent owed anything) they claim that customer service failed them.

    Cricket is a joke that = crappy phones, no cell towers, and I’m too poor and can’t afford to manufacture a decent phone. Don’t bash on t-mobile cause you suck

    T-mobile should put out a commercial that is just the white background and a little cricket just chirping away… Carly walks out, stomps on it, smiles and does a little curtsey, then walks out…

  • Harper-raymond22

    Ok After reading many of these comments! I must comment!! Ok tmobile is good in some areas of the world!!! But they charge alot on the bills!!!! Cricket on the other hand has great service in most areas but not all areas will have SERVICE DUH!! And Cricket has 1GB of VERY VERY VERY FAST HIGH SPEED INTERNET! But after the 1GB it is still Fast! I have the ZTE Android phone/muve music phone and truth is i used about 6GB of internet already and my internet is still fast!!!! I watch netflix alot on my phone! My bill is $60.00 a month with no surprises!! At&T on the other hand is very good! But if u are underclass or on a budget Cricket will be the best for u! Verzion on the other hand is just flat out EXPENSIVE!!!!! I payed $284 a month for Verizon and the data runns up very fast!!!!!! I think by 2013 Cricket will be the new IT!!!!!! HELLO CRICKET!

  • THE KEEPER
