Cricket adds EV-DO for $40 per month, no contract

Cricket_logo_wireless_200Cricket may not be a giant wireless carrier but they seem to have stores on every corner here in Houston.  They recently added to their offering with unlimited 5 GB capped EV-DO for $40 monthly with no contract, something that may appeal to a bunch of folks.  Their service is a bit limited geographically with coverage initially in Las Vegas, Oklahoma City, St. Louis and "several Texas cities" but they intend to roll this out in all areas they service by end of the year.  I wonder who they are contracting their EV-DO from, Verizon or Sprint?  Note that you cannot use the Cricket service to run a server nor for VoIP.  Sorry Skypers.
