Subject: Re: android question
My current phone is from cricket.  I don't like their idea of blocking a
feature the manufacturer built into the phone (sharing the internet
connection) and charging to restore it.  The LG X charge I had when I
was with comcast enables  the sharing of the phone's internet
connection.  I think i'll pay the $20 to get it unlocked then put the
cricket sim card in it.
