    This is probably a bias place to ask a question like this. The percentages have remained pretty consistent from what I've been tracking.

    Been with cricket since Sept '09. due to affordable billing, phones didn't matter to me. Joined this site upon inception iirc and learned about flashed phone. I went Cricket and I'm not going back.

    Nope, the cricket branded phones were POS when I got my service. Been flashing phones since my first one I flashed for myself.

    whitey, your boy John out in Cary keeps flagging everybodies ads around here. and no I wouldn't have stayed with them or started flashing phones i guess, bringing them money every day, if it wasn't for flashed phones.

    hell i brought cricket enough customers and ported numbers they should give me a free mercury :/

    so im sure they wouldn't want to lose THAT much of their customer base when 50%+ of their phones are not Cricket phones...

    This is a common occurrence around the nation for people to ban eachother's Craigslist ads. One reason I got fed up and decided just to put all the information out there to the masses.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!

    My boy Jonh in Cary? Not really sure who your referring to the only John I know in Cary, ID is in the lumber industry and would have no reason to flag a CL ad unless he had reason.

    So here's my suggestion to solve any problems you might have:
    1] Don't accuse people unless you have evedance or can easily prove it.
    2] Provide a good service to your custy's (word of mouth advertising is the best)
    3] Use other forms of advertising also. Facebook, adwords, adbrite, google places are all good, you can even expand and do banners.

    I also do beleive that cricket would still be in 2006 if it was not for the flashed phones that are on their network.

    I don't use a flashed phone on Cricket, and don't plan on using a flashed phone since I'm in an AWS market. So, I would still get Cricket regardless of it they offered flashed phones or not.

    I think it's a great offer though. It really expands the phone selection.

    Great poll because cricket is really just about the easiest network to get your phone flashed to and I enjoy it for the most part.
    Cricket is cool, but sometimes I get a few dropped calls but I Am not crying my bill is a little low now because someone at the main office screwed up my esn change when I had my flash done. They gave me a $10 credit towards my next month!

    No other phone company would have ever done that, I am going to stay with cricket!
    My new in the hood carrier but it serves the purpose for me now.

    Hopefully this will show the importance of the site.
