Cricket continues adding smartphone customers, plans price overhaul

Cricket‘s Q1 earnings call wasn’t so much their numbers as the sense of mystery that CEO Doug Hutcheson instilled. Yes, Leap did add 258,000 subscribers, besting rival MetroPCS. They also note that 62 percent of new handset sales were smartphones, which is a positive sign. But the big part of the announcement was that Leap plans to again overhaul its service plans and handset lineup in the second half of this year. They made a similar move in the summer of 2010. We’ll be on the lookout for any rumors or leaks that might unveil what Cricket has in store. Almost certainly the changes will involve LTE; Cricket is currently building out an LTE network.
