    Default Verizon Prepaid - Who are they gonna buy?

    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

    They currently run their own on their CDMA network.

    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.

    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.
