    Did anyone here get the free Ascend?

    Did anyone here get the free Ascend with the trade in of your old phone and the porting of your number?

    If you did, how do you like your new phone?

    Actually, they're just trying to bring more subscribers to Cricket.. it has nothing to do with a desperate need to sell the Ascend II.. Please don't be so cynical

    Cricket knows T-Mobile has been bought out, so it was great timing/marketing, not a hint of desperation or trickery.

    EDIT: Sorry if I didn't read you properly, but in any case you have the wrong idea about what they were thinking. Also, it's not just the Ascend that was free, and it's no longer free, the Zio and Suede are. The LG Optimus is on for $99 and free in some stores if they meet the requirements. But I'm not allowed to share those requirements.

    Well every store and rep has their own style I guess, but I know it wasn't Cricket's idea. This deal was actually set to expire on June 14th, it just worked so well they extended it until the 4th of July, and now up until July 17th. Of course with variations in pricing.

    Some markets may have different prices/deals.

    Was it a corporate location or an authorized dealer?

    Local store had a promotion. If you traded a competitors phone and ported your number, they gave you a choice of free phones. The free ones were the Ascend, Optimus C, and the Suede. I chose the Optimus C.

    You have to see what store is doing it. There's a condition that has to be met in order for the store to offer it. I suggest trying the busier stores.

    Huawei Ascend



    I switched over from Boost Mobile about a month ago and picked up the Ascend (my closest Cricket store is still advertising the Ascend for free if you port your number to Cricket). So far I have been quite pleased with it, though it is my first Android phone so I have no real frame of reference. The only real complaints I have are the limited battery life and the occasional difficulty answering a call when I don't swipe across the screen just right. It certainly would be nice to get an upgrade to 2.2, but that is just a nice-to-have.
