This morning's announcement that Cricket will be the first prepaid carrier to pick up the Apple iPhone 4S was surprising. Besides the fact that the phone will be offered to an entirely new market, selling it on an incredibly reasonable $55 unlimited plan with a reasonable 2.3 GB of data per month is awesome. 2.3 GB is a rather odd amount of data to offer, but otherwise, I can see a deal like this making postpaid customers think twice about renewing their contracts. Sure, you're paying more for the device up front, but you're also saving quite a bit in the long-term. Plus, those coming out of contracts have the ability to sell old devices, cutting down on the cost of the Cricket iPhone.
Are you interested in switching to Cricket (or another, less expensive carrier) for your iPhone needs, or are you content with your current carrier? Cast your vote and let me know your thoughts in the comments section!
