    Seem's like Verizon is the only one left who DOESN'T own a separate company to be their "Prepaid" Company!

    Sprint: Boost and Virgin Mobile
    T-Mobile: Metro PCS (Currently shifting all customers to tmobile and using the old Metro Network for LTE)
    AT&T: Cricket (Just Approved by FCC today: Customers will shift over to AT&T network over time, and crickets undivested network will be used for LTE)

    Verizon is the only one left

    I think the only brand left that uses Verizon exclusively is Page Plus, which is now a part of America Movil (US TracFone, NET10, etc.).

    I see AT&T buying Cricket as mostly a spectrum grab.

    Verizon likes contract. Seems like pp is an afterthought.

    That is true, however, att and tmobile both had "Prepaid plans" and separate prepaid phones and they bought out and moved there "prepaid business" under a newly acquired name ... and yes as mostly a spectrum grab

    Maybe not just a spectrum grab, but a marketing one as well.

    Probably makes sense. Cricket is a better known name.
