AT&T's no-contract subsidiary Cricket Wireless is going after the current customers of T-Mobile and MetroPCS with a new promotion, offering them a $100 bill credit if they switch their phone number to Cricket.

The special offer actually begins on Sunday, August 24 and ends on October 19 and is just for T-Mobile and MetroPCS customers who are moving their number or numbers to Cricket's Basic, Smart or Pro rate plan. The $100 credit should be enough for over two months of free use for Cricket's Basic Plan at $35 a month and the Smart Plan at $45 a month.

What do you think of this new offer from Cricket, and indirectly AT&T, to go after T-Mobile's customers?
