    Pass, Nexxxxt. This new tmo promo, if you need 2 lines or more, surpasses anything Cricket can offer. I considered switching from Tmo prepaid to Cricket permanently. I’d left Tmo simple choice to prepaid because I wanted no fees and taxes on a bill, but this new 2 for 100 unlmtd promotion, prompted me back to postpaid on simple choice. Its a no brainer. Cricket offers 60 with a 5.00 discount with autopay for 10gb data, but I tried it for 1 month in October, and it was HEAVILY throttled even during the 10gb. I would be getting 1.5mbps in the daytime and approx 4mbps in the evening. Rush hour times of approx 7-9 and 4-6pm were soooo congested/throttled, it was ridiculous to use for webpages, forget about Netflix! I was using two lines, one on a N3 and the other on a tablet. I was traveling from Bridgeport, CT to Manhattan 3x/week. Well, I can gladly say, that now that im back on magenta postpaid, im enjoying those nice speeds I was so accustomed to. I netflix’ed my entire trip from Manhattan to Bridgeport, 1h19m, only suffered a 1minute slowdown in New Rochelle (dunno what the the hell is happening there! I had LTE,H,Edge,GPRS all in the same 1 minute lol, but I’ve had issues there before when I used to work there earlier this year, maybe A BAND 2? hopeful, because LTE was nonexistent there on Band 4). Anyway, the point is that Cricket lures people in there only because its POWERED BY ATT! ATT my ass lol, that shit is so heavily throttled its ridiculous. Granted I did get “SIGNAL” inside grand central station (underground) with “LTE” but it was unusable. I wish someone would dig into their native coverage, because I honestly don’t believe cricket customers use the entire ATT network/roaming agreements. Well whatever the case may be, this was my recent experience. OH BTW, dont even ATTEMPT to download torrents lol!!! U can download all you want from 1000+seeders and ull still take about a week for 1 movie ha!
    Update: actually I do recommend going to cricket for a couple of months, get the free phones and unlock, bring back to TMO lol. I did for an HTC desire 501….giving it as a christmas present…. THanx for the free phone Cricket!
