    Yassine family after sale of PP?

    Back in the day i used to be very fond of the fact that Mr. Abdul Yassine built up this company to the tune of 1 million customers.

    Question: did the family keep running PP after the sale to Slim & co?

    Or are they enjoying the fruits of their labor on a beach somewhere? Start another cellular company?

    I started using PPC just a couple of years after they started the MVNO part of their business, signing up at the headquarters they built on Monroe St., Toledo, and I stayed with PPC for 14 years. I was told the former owners stayed on as consultants, but I don't know if that was accurate or, if it was, how long they stayed,

    There must have been some long term agreement to run the company much as it had been set up. It still retains a lot of the look-and-feel, and some of the policies have been distinctly different than other TracFone companies.

    It's just a slight mirror of the former page plus.

    Today it's just another TF brand with all the issues.
