    I'm not sure about the 1GB data cap... But according to the article the $40 dollar plan has a 2.5GB cap. I've never hit the cap that i'm aware of. But I don't use Pandora or any extra data using features other than the normal Web, MMS, etc.

    I'm sure it will spread to smartphones also. The article just didn't say that.

    How could this be implemented on the smartphones? The only way I can figure is Cricket allows the customers to charge it to their flex bucket when the cap is hit.... Or, they can offer another 1 gb for say $5.00 extra a month on a regular basis....

    However, that would mean more issues for us in the stores.

    I can here it now, "WHAT!!! I didn't order that extra data? What dat be?"

    I think it would be nice to just offer another GB for $5. That's nice and simple.

    After the customer hits the 1 GB soft cap, they can get a text message asking them if they want to purchase another GB of data for $5. They respond "YES" and it will come out of their Flex Bucket.

    Unfortunately our customers think Cricket is responsible for the "kids" mistakes....

    Agreed.... I think it would be very advantagous to allow a 1gb bolt on as a permanent thing just like the roaming bolt ons.... If you make them stackable, then it becomes much easier for the customer and us to manage and gives flexibility. If they do the flex bucket thing, then we will all hear about the "issues...."

    This change is supposed to happen during the first half of 2012, according to the article. So, we could be seeing this change any day now. It will be nice to see what the Cricket community thinks of the change.

    I still like the idea of paying more to increase the throttling speed. I wouldn't really want to pay $2 for 24 hours of full speed (as the example in the article says), but rather I'd be more interested in paying an extra $5 per month to increase the throttled speed to something more reasonable, such as 256 kbps, instead of 100 kbps or less.

    This is not on the radar for any time soon according to the cricket peeps in my market. Later this year most likely..

    Yeah, I won't be surprised if it's later than expected. I know not to plan on things happening at a certain time with Cricket.

    It will be a nice offering when it does eventually come out. It can definitely be useful, especially for someone on a road trip wanting to keep the kids busy watching a movie on Netflix. It's probably worth $2 to keep them occupied.
