    Cricket recently announced that it is going to offer 4G. So I am wondering how long before Sprint will be forced to start offering 4G as well....?

    Sprint already has 4G, but weather or not they'll pass it on to Virgin Mobile remains to be seen. Would be nice!

    Except that isn't offered for phones. It's for their pre paid wireless internet.

    Actually Cricket is going to offer the LTE service for their phones at some point "Cricket does not plan to provide 4G LTE mobile devices (feature phones, smartphones or tablets) just yet as they were judged too expensive to fit in Cricket’s product catalogue. Cricket’s first focus will be USB modems for laptops and desktops and it will start proposing LTE phones only when “they are thin and cheap enough, and have decent battery life,” said Matt Stoiber, Cricket’s vice president for Device Development, according to PCmag."

    But T-Mobile's 4G service will put significant pressure on VM.

    I hope Verizon's prepaid prices become more reasonable

    The major advantages of switching to T-Mobile is 4G and a much better selection of phones. The downside is that you get less minutes and limited amount of texts. On the $30 per month plan you get 100 minutes and 300 texts I believe. You can get around this by using sipdroid and Google Voice.
