I'm willing to bet though that Cricket isnt paying a dime up front for them and its going to be a revenue sharing agreement.
Essentially how Apple makes their billions give them a free sample up front to get them hooked on the numbers then ask them to pay up every month for each user.
I do agree that Sprint should buy Cricket and put them out of their misery. I don't think they want Cricket's AWS spectrum. If they can swap it for some PCS spectrum, that would be sweet!
Well Virgin just pushed release date to the 29th.. So Cricket windows just shrunk alot.. On top of that Virgin is offering the $30 plan for the iphone.. ALso works on major markets.
WARREN, N.J. – June 7, 2012 – Virgin Mobile USA announced today it will offer iPhone to its prepaid customers beginning Friday, June 29. Virgin Mobile will offer iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with its Beyond Talk unlimited data and messaging plans as low as $30 per-month on the Sprint® Nationwide Network. iPhone will be available without a contract and with no fees for activation or roaming. New and existing customers can purchase iPhone at www.virginmobileusa.com, RadioShack, Best Buy and select local retailers.
Also in an en note.. Virgin release of the iphone will count towards the inventory of Sprints.. as per discussion on article. So I will assume this will also play a role with Cricket.
That giant sum will go down a bit if Virgin Mobile's iPhones take off. Sprint noted in a regulatory filing in Thursday that sales of Virgin Mobile iPhones will count towards Sprint's unit sales contract with Apple.
