In a first move following their completed acquisition of Leap Wireless, AT&T will now merge Aio Wireless into Leap’s Cricket prepaid brand. Reports of this happening surfaced months ago, which we mentioned in our best prepaid plans post, so it shouldn’t exactly come as a shocker. The good news is that not much is changing, at least for now.
If you are an Aio Wireless customer, the only change you’ll see in the coming months is a new logo. You still get access to the same network, same plans, and your same phone number. You also don’t need to change phones or update billing info.
At some point down the road, when the Cricket and Aio brands are fully merged, you’ll be able to find retail Cricket stores and do shopping or ask questions. Until that happens (we’ll give you a heads up when it does), you will receive support the same way you do now by dialing 611.
If you are a current Cricket customer, things will likely change significantly over time. For now, you don’t have to worry about it, but there will come a time when Cricket will invite you into a new store to pick-up a new phone and plan.
