It makes logistics a lot easier on Apple's end (they ship these phones straight from the factories in China usually), while helping to ensure product security and availability levels at each store. I imagine Cricket's HQ has a list of the franchised locations and would provide Apple with a list of addresses to ship the phones to (assuming they don't distribute this way with 4/4S units currently).
Unlike all other phones, which probably are purchased by the carrier or franchisee at wholesale and they sort it out themselves, iPhones are special. Apple controls their inventory with an iron fist...

Lol, sorry. Can't ask relative (wife's aunt) to start shipping phones all over the place. I think apple limits purchases to two per person at launch too right?
