Hi everybody! I got a Huawei Ascend from a private party below retail. My spouse has one and has a Cricket account. Right now I am looking to see if I can be added to his account and qualify for the Family Plan for the USA Android Ascend for $50.00/month. I currently am with T-Mobile and have the Sidekick LX 07, but there are changes coming, like a new $80.00/mo bill! I am so excited! The phone I got was bought new 4 months ago. Not sure if there is a memory chip in it, but I did download the PDF Manuel I found on this site! Thank you. I have delurked after a few days of browsing here! ETA I am also willing to buy an Ascend from Cricket and get the family plan that way. I can resell this Ascend, I got a really good deal on it.
