    If you hit the 1 GB usage this month (which you can access through your mycricket account to check the usage) Then your 3G will be throttling to either really slow, or be switched to 1x. If you got WiFi, then yes, WiFi is best option.

    Its not on the phone, they check by how much data you use through their systems.

    Although this topic had been addressed ad nauseum, I'll say it again. Unlimited has nothing to do with speed. Cricket advertises speeds of up to 1.4mbs. So any data you get is still unlimited at any speed. No where do they say "unlimited at top speed", or even at a specific speed.
