    CricKet is turning out, at least by my experience, to one of the best network carriers out there. Especially for the so far, 2 Android phones out on release. $55 plan for Android phones. I say that's pretty cheap, especially for the unlimited everything, including unlimited data.

    Who agrees with me?

    I agree and here is why. I was using a BlackBerry Storm through Verizon. It was a hundred-ish bucks a month for a phone that was a disaster. The Storm had to have been RIM's idea of a sick joke.

    The 3G was sickening. Could have carried data faster by Pony Express. The phone was buggy, the display horrible and lack of apps depressing. I finally just gave up on smart phones and went to using a regular old cell phone with a really awful web setup. And of course no ability to use Wi-Fi.

    I was convinced to give smart phones one more try and Cricket was suggested. Cricket? The el-cheapo, terrible coverage Cricket of years ago? Well, its still cheap enough to try.

    About a week ago I walked in, got their Ascend Android phone, protective case, car charger and all that for a bit less than 2 months of service for the BB Storm.

    So far I have found the Cricket coverage to be excellent, web browsing and app downloading are pretty darn good with the phone itself, and even better when using my cable wi-fi. Phone has an excellent display, easy to use and an excellent way to try the Android without spending a lot of money to see if you like it.

    For now I think I have found a phone and service provider that I am content with.

    Can't beat their Android plan if you don't do a lot of traveling.

    I was disappointed to learn that Cricket slows down your speeds after only using 1GB of data usage.

    i had a blackberry on tmobile and had to go upstairs to text...and outside to talk...for about 110/month....i had it for about 2 months and had to get rid of them...cricket isnt the best...but they work better than some and almost as well as most carriers for a fraction of the cost....

    Are you able to connect to wifi at all? That helps keep the data usage down.
