    Everyone isnt going to get it exactly the way they want the switch to happen. I'm predicting:

    1. There will be some kind of large discount to switch phones so customers dont get too pissed and leave.
    2. Financed phones will subtract the owed amount the discount amount of the new GSM phone.
    3. Once the stores are setup to start putting people on GSM accounts then the CDMA line of phones will no longer be sold.
    4. Once the GSM accounts start, the current CDMA phones will still work for months until they can convince everyone to come in the store and exchange it with a discounted equivalent GSM phone.
    5. ATT will probably will push Jan 1, 2015 as a cut off date to switch phones.
    6. Yea, not sure about cricket people with previous bad ATT accounts. There is chance they will never know about bad accounts since they probably have sold them(written them off) to a collection agency.

    ....but no one knows and my crystal ball needs new batteries too.

    Wise I think those possibilities make sense. We know that att wants the spectrum but they also want as many cricket customers they can convince to switch over. I can't see them allowing millions of customers to walk that easy. Money is the game here and att wants more of it.
    If I can upgrade to the s4 or s5 next year I'll be happy with that if the service is a lot better than what I have now.

    Hopefully as long as it's functional they won't look into it much!

    We are going to be taking the devices even if they are rooted and even if they have been damaged, the only thing that will matter its that they are still functional

    Sounds like CU needs to start a thread for the newbs about how to wipe/reset and remove sd cards so all personal info is gone before they exchange it. Yea, some will forget to do it or just not be sure how to do it.

    Ledah that has been my worry this whole time. Someone convinced me to root saying at&t doesn't want a cdma device anyways. Well I can see knox as a way for at&t to knox off some trade in value.

    Went to a store today to ask about the transition. Was told that starting on May 18th the new network is going to kick in. At that point we will be able to activate GSM phones with a fee. Also the Moto G will be available along with a Lumia phone. The Samsung S5 would be available at the end of the month.

    Hello will we still be able to finance the phones? I'm assuming the S5 will be pretty pricey.. Can only afford it in payments... Hope we still get that service, thanks for your time!

    @Ztony....my S4 is financed with Fortiva. I asked about that on Cricket's facebook. I was told that they will be financing devices. ..and someone else (not a Cricket employee?) said that the financing is thru Progressive Financial rather than YBUY or Fortiva. ...so to me that means...if I want the S5 I'll have to open a new account. btw...the S5 is supposed to be coming very soon, but no date was given.
    I have also decided that I'm not trading in my S4. I'm going to give it to my dad. He wants it for the "non-phone" stuff...music (better make sure to wipe my tunes off...don't think he would appreciate the metal bands I'm into...Kreator, Coroner, etc ), room temp sensor, GPS digiHUD speedometer for use in his antique car, etc
