    At the risk of being snarky, why do you have thread for a phone that is allegedly coming out for Cricket, possibly in November?
    This phone has not been released to the user trial groups yet and that typically happens 3-6 months before it sees the light of day for consumers.
    This is just plain misleading.

    Unless something goes wrong, this phone should be coming to Cricket. I don't think PCMag would release information if it wasn't confirmed in some way.

    Of course not, nothing has ever been printed in a magazine that was later found to be incorrect.

    Even if it does come to Cricket, having a "FAQ" and links to nonexistent tutorials on the boards is misleading and makes the entire operation look stupid, IMO. You may not be aware of this but at some point Google may parse some of these links and these threads could show up in a search. If that happens before the phone hits, it's likely going to be a blow to the credibility of this site. ESPECIALLY if the phone gets shelved at the 11th hour. That has happened before.

    While this post may be violating this rule, it is the policy of most boards to only post things that are factual and relevant. These phantom posts of yours don't offer anything IMO. No offense intended.

    I appreciate your thoughts.

    I agree, there have been some announcements for things that haven't actually come out. For example, the Huawei X5 was supposed to come to Cricket. I haven't heard anything about that for a while. Maybe it's not coming anymore. It's probably already outdated.

    The CEO of Cricket said something about a dual-core device. He may have been referring to the Glory, although it is said the Glory doesn't have a dual-core processor. Maybe they're referring to that second chip.. What was it, a graphics chip or something? I'm not sure, I'd need to look it up.

    We decided we wanted to put up the FAQ and Tutorial guide on all the phones. We haven't finished putting them up yet. As soon as I heard about the Glory, I rushed to create one. The goal is to have it there and ready so as soon as the phone comes out we can add information right away. Thank you for your thoughts on that, and I will discuss it with some others.

    Thank you again. I'll take what you said into consideration.

    Thats a pretty crappy attitude there sars. A forum is for the exchange of information and for users to help each other. Threatening to leave because youre not getting what you want is pretty childish.

    You've been told what we know. If that's not good enough for you sorry.

    And, we have said multiple times, it should be coming out this week. I understand you're excited. I would be too if I was planning on getting it! That's why I'm not getting annoyed. If I was ready to get a new phone, I'd be asking nonstop too!

    I appreciate the attitude with which you received my message, even though it's delivery may not have been the best. Well done.

    I think the X5 was modded down a bit and released as the ascend 2. Pure conjecture on my part, but the look exactly the same except for the flash on the back, from the pics I've seen of the x5.

    I thought the X5 had a larger screen, a 3.8 inch screen. Also, I heard the X5 records in 720p, and I don't remember reading that about the Ascend.

    I think the Ascend 2 has a 3.5 inch screen. If it has a larger screen I might want to get it..

    It looks like Cricket admitted the Glory is coming on their Facebook page!

    They said "Hi Alton - Much like the Ascend, please stay tuned for information regarding the Huawei Glory"

    This is the first time I saw them say that!

    No one ever said this was Cricket, in fact the contrary is true.
    Cricket doesn't run a user forum.
    All you will find anywhere is rumors because there has been no official release announcement. Try the Cricket facebook or twitter pages. Closest thing you'll get to official but not really because they are both run by PR firms and they don't know anything either.
    Sorry we weren't able to help you but it would be good to remember "attitude is everything". Next time you may not get a response if you choose this path.

    Just because I can say it.... the ascend to will be available between July 6th and July 13th. An educated guess.

    This forum is not run by Cricket. Like Woof said, we haven't received any official information. We go by what we heard from other sources, such as PCMag, Cricket's Facebook, and at times, other forums. We put the information together and try to find what we think is most reliable. Then, we post it.

    If you want official information, you can visit Cricket's website.
