I remember reading over at CU they were going to do this after the iPhone came out, but they said something about having to have something switched on your plan. Do you have to do anything, or is it automatic?

FWIW, Cricket has newer plans getting ready to hit soon (something like $70 for 5gb)
Not to mention, Huawei/Cricket are doing a so-called "recall" on the Merc. If you're eligible, you should receive a text message saying so... I got one, called the number included in the text, and the rep said my new Merc will be at the nearest cricket store (based off if your zip) Friday.

Got the text yesterday... I'd rather keep my og Merc that works perfectly than one that's gunked up with their Muve crap. Nice to see them offering more data though. Now lets work on some 4g!

They sent me an email about the HTC One V. Doesn't seem like an upgrade from the Merc. Plus no removable battery or SD card = no sale for me.

Yeah, I saw the HTC online, but I also noticed they took the Mercury off the site again. I wonder if that's the end of the Mercury... with all the new phones that are suppose to be coming .

Lady at The Cricket store said to expect the Samsung Galaxy S3 in the future. Don't know if that's a for sure thing though. If it Cricket does get the S3 I will defiantly update. I will sure miss having Flash though.

Did you see the giant Muve music logo right on the front of the screen by the earpiece on the HTC? Ridiculous. That's enough to make me not get it even if I liked it lol. The S3 would be nice, but i'm still happy with the Merc unless they get 4g around here.

According to the thread I was reading over at Cricket Users, you do need to change your plan. I went to MyCricket.com and changed mine and did a *228 for good measure and everything seems fine. You can also call*611 or go to a Cricket store to make the change. Again, this is according to CricketUsers, but most of the mods there are Cricket dealers, so they should know what they're talking about.

When I was at the website they had a giant banner ad for the Mercury for $199. May vary according to area though. What other phones are they rumored to be getting? I haven't been keeping up on this stuff lately, haven't really felt any urge to upgrade. The Merc has been doing what I need it to do.

Yuck. Lets hope this Mercury lasts awhile. I'd rather see them stick with Huawei than go to ZTE. I guess Huawei is getting to high end for them lol.

Yeah, I think its a downgrade, but I'm sure some people will get it just for the name. I consider HTC Sense as bloatware myself, though.

What's that one called? No flash for the camera, can't be a very high end model. Looks pretty cool, though.

$60/month = Unlimted Talk,Text and Web w/tethering (2.5gb full speed) w/muve music
$70/month = Unlimted Talk,Text and Web w/tethering (5gb full speed) w/muve music

and with the addition of $10/1gb data add on packages I'm really starting to like cricket!

Why would they discontinue the Mercury already? That sucks. They're still selling the Ascend 2 for Christs sake.

Because now they have the HTC One V. Its a nice phone, but actually has a much slower processor and less battery life than the Mercury. I think people will get excited about it though just because it's an HTC...

So according to some posters at CU the Mercury will be replaced by the Ice, which is the same phone in white. Seems like they just want to change the name and run away from the problems some have had with the Mercury. Those HTC phones are not even in the same class as the Merc, I wouldn't even consider downgrading.

Need to correct myself, apparently the One V does have an SD card slot. I think the One S and X don't, but they probably left it up to the phone buyer to supply their own memory to keep costs down on the V. I actually think this is a good thing, but no removable battery is still a no go.

True... Removable battery isn't that bad IMHO (I have a DROID Razr)
The Merc ICE??? LOL, heard about this a while ago.... Was wondering if the recall was going to replace the "old" Merc with this but guess not. :what:

P.S. The Htc One V looks NOTHING like the picture that was posted above. It does have a flash & 5 mp camera with the new HD Video Pic ability! It has a 1 Ghz processor also.

It's not the HTC One V. It's supposedly another HTC version being tested on crickets network.... pure speculation.

-Gmash
-He pretty much answered your question about the new phones. I haven't been here for a few weeks.-

So today I visited the store, and the htc is defiantly a downgrade. Screen isn't any sharper, camera only 5mp.

The guy confirmed the Mercury is gone as I figured, because of all the problems they had with them. It's so weird cause my phone has never had an issue and I did all the upgrades. I'm sticking with this phone for awhile.

Apparently 4g is for sure coming to Cricket, but no exact date was given. Again they said that they will be getting a Galaxy s3 in the near future.

I don't get on any phone forums, but I was wondering how people feel about loosing flash with 4.O? I'm pretty upset about it. I loved that android had that over I-phone, and we will lose that. Do you guys care about this?

Losing flash grinds one of my gears as far as ics goes. However, there are fixes for this... Devs have found ways to fix depending on what browser (chrome, dolphin HD, what not) I'll try and did thru my d/l'd files when I get home and see if I got one for the Merc (former owner here)

Mercury not really gone, will be re released as Mercury "Ice" later this month, already out at Radio Shack. Strange thing about flash is, we were always dying to get it on the Ascend, but now that I have it I rarely use it. (shrug)

Going down the spec list the HTC also has a smaller 3.7" screen and a 5 MP camera vs. Mercury's 4" screen and 8 MP camera, although the Mercury's camera quality is questionable in moderate to low lighting. (very noisy). Not sure how the HTC compares there.

I went ahead and swapped out my Mercury with the free replacement although I never got a concrete answer as to why they're doing the recall.

At least Cricket finally removed CarrierIQ with the latest firmware update.
