Cricket's helps young customers go legit

Cricket's typical customer is young, loves music, and often doesn't have a PC, said Jeff Toig, Cricket's vice president of product marketing. Many existing Cricket customers download their music through illegal file-sharing systems on library or school computers so they can listen to it on portable devices, Toig said.

Cricket Wireless announced at the end of December 2010 - a new music service that offers unlimited music downloads, along with unlimited calling, texting, e-mail and Web access for only $55 per month. The Muve service and Suede phone will be available this January. Cricket, the nation's seventh largest wireless carrier, serves about 5 million people in 35 states.
