    sorry pony i'm not being shady. in our market and many other markets direct cricket dealers CANNOT ACTIVATE ANY NEW CDMA LINES. this is at the direction of our IAM/ISE and what we have been told since day alpha. customers can however activate their cdma lines onto cricket pay-go service outside the store with customer care or cricket's website.

    it gives me no pleasure to turn away valuable customers, and i often assist them to get their phones onto cricket cdma pay-go.

    wait what? most markets are not allowing CDMA activations / add a line any more?

    why has my Master Agent not told us..... we are activating / add a line for CDMA phones everyday with no issue under the Old Cricket SID portal?..... just about all the stores in my area are telling them no buy gsm or go away but yet im still activing them? this is strange " HOPE I DONT GET TERMINATION " lol

    i better go talk to the council
    just a reminder im still Non-Excluvive lol still no re-model of store yet.. i still sell all phones carriers. even a cricket dealer with the CID. sad part of all this is i was told by mater agent that my store wont get the NEW GSM Phones Only phones i can activate in KPOS is the BLU, AT&T or BYOD.... this sucks that all other crickets are getting custoemrs but us for the new gsm.\

    i has Cricket customers tell me everyday... why is it that all cricket stores have the new phones but you? arnt you a cricket store?..... this makes no since.

    " wish i could have your CDMA customers lol to activate for them "

    this is so the wrong place to post all this please someone KILL THIS POST.

    ** SORRY 4 CALLING YOU ALL SHADY ** i had no clue what was going on since im not in the Loop.... no one tells me anything from cricket.....

    i think you are okay. your master dealer has some arrangement with cricket and i'm sure they would communicate any job threatening changes immediately

    i was told walmart would still be selling our old cdma pay-go phones until they run out of stock. fair warning to anyone who sees Cricket branded devices on the cheap at walmart that they are cdma

    also, i heard radio shack no longer sells radio shack branded cricket devices.

    i can see Radio Shack not selling it any more due to them ( roumer ) going out of business

    RadioShack to close up to 1,100 stores - USA Today

    Is there any hope left for Radio Shack? You no longer can get even a battery there for a Moto phone. They spun off the Target cell phone kiosks to a new group and the service is just as bad at Target as before (I have been there this last month seeing what was available.)

    Some of the area Cricket stores are indeed shady and I had to involve the Visalia Corp store to get phones exchanged for service last year.

    radio shack's decline is a sign of the times science and math went down the toilet with public education, but that is another topic all together.

    and yea, some cricket dealers/reps/stores are shady and fraudulent. i could probably say the same for most companies not just cricket

    Down in the basement of a motor machine shop, in a part of downtown Fresno that most people won't be caught dead in, is the coolest war surplus store I've ever seen. No gas masks or jackets. But all circuit boards and electronics that can be sold to civilians. Boxes and boxes of everything electronic. If I need something, I go there and buy the whole board for 1/10 of what Radio Shack charges. There's probably one of these in most big towns. I haven't been there in several years, so it might be gone. But it is/was way cool. Plus, Radio Shack has been devoting less and less space to the hobby sections for years.
