I’m not the first person with this issue if you look through the community forum. I was double charged for a phone I purchased through cricketwireless.com and when I tried to get one of the charges reversed by calling Cricket “Customer Support”, the person I spoke with told me to dispute the charge with my bank… fast-forward a week after I disputed one of the charges and my phone was reported “lost or stolen” by Cricket Wireless for a charge back. I wasn’t given a phone call, text, or issued a warning of any kind that this had happened, my phone just stopped working. I called Cricket Wireless “Customer Support” five times the same day my phone stopped receiving calls (calls to cricket support go through just fine) to get the issue sorted out and each time I got a different person with a different suggestion of how to resolve my issue. Clearly customer support is not a priority of Cricket Wireless. I eventually happened to get someone on the online chat support that went as far as t
Lets face it. Cricket is a budget company with budget phones. Gets u out of a tight spot if ur desperate. But then when its time to upgrade or change ur number, or pretty much anything, its basically a giant fuck u. Here come all the surcharges. Whats more which they dont mention in the stores is u have to have an open account for 6 months with the phone u bought in order to get the lock code. Doesnt matter that u spent $xxx.xx and its YOUR phone. They hold u and it hostage. I pray i never become so desperate again to EVER do business with this company. Phuck Cricket

Hello. I used to be a customer and I wanted to come back. Thing is, I'd really like to have my old phone number if it's available. Is there any way to request specific digits when starting up service OR when changing the phone number of an existing account?Thank you very much.
I changed my pin after several failed attempts to change it through the automated (I wouldn’t receive the confirmation code) I spoke with a representative to have the pin changed. Cricket wireless sent me a confirmation code that my pin was successfully changed but it didn’t confirm my number.How canI confirm I still have my accurate number
As of 1 hour ago, both voice and data have stopped working and received a SIM not provisioned error mm#2. Also when i try to call in for some reason my account PIN is no longer working and it does not let me go past the phone menu for support. I had my pin written down and i am sure it is correct so something must be going on with my account in order for it not work at all , please help. Every time i try the customer line i get disconnected as well even when calling from another phone.
I called and spoke to a representative about using a old SIM card because my device wouldn’t stay on and I wasn’t sure why.After giving the representative my SIM card number I wanted to charge it to he said that that SIM card was being used on another line. Kindly confirm what needs to be done as I explained to him this was not possible as the SIM card is in my possession.This is known as a form of identity theft how can I get this fixed.
I've been on and off the phone with Cricket Wireless Customer Service today and I'm extremely frustrated. After speaking with five different agents/supervisors collectively for over two and half hours, they talked over me and wouldn't let me speak, then ultimately hung up on me (very professional). I'm trying to switch to Verizon after experiencing months and months of delayed texts and performance issues. Unfortunately Cricket is claiming that the iPhone XR that I purchased from them outright (yes, my own iPhone that I paid for and did NOT finance) cannot be unlocked until after six months from activation date. They claim it states that in the "contract". What??? Contract??? I originally signed up with Cricket because I didn't want a contract! So Cricket Wireless is holding my iPhone XR (my asset that I own) hostage. It's absolutely unbelievable and speaks volumes about a poorly run organization. DO NOT GO WITH CRICKET WIRELESS!!!
Have been trying to port my number to a new carrier for about a week now. Cricket says the port is ready to go, US Mobile says there is multiple port requests out on the number and there isn’t, they’re also saying there is invalid account info to complete the port, but the account and PIN are all correct. A possible solution has been brought to my attention that USM might have input an incorrect Service Profile ID number. Cricket support chat is telling me my account # and pin are my SPiD, but it should only be a 4 digit number, cricket/att specific. I’ve spent 5+ hours on the phone trying to get this number ported over, I just want to be done with this
first question does cricket charge tax and fees on monthly charge ( such as $40 a month ) ? second question i like the low end (as they call them ) andriods i am looking for one similar to axia ( vision cricket ) or zte maven 3 ?third on byod does any phone from at&t work ? and last question is cricket owned by at&t ?
are you ever going to fix your sign up? it's been almost a year since this problem has cropped up and absolutely nothing has been done about it. I shouldn't have to turn off my wifi (and sometimes even my data) on my PHONE just to be able to sign in. i've already talked to customer service over the phone when this issue first popped up for me and they were overall unhelpful.i understand that due to covid things might be a lil short staffed here and there but i feel like fixing your sites login is literally vital to your company and its customers. you should focus on that. :/
I paid my bill in full before seeing and applying for the ACP benefits/program, I was accepted for 30$ of assistance, I just paid my 80$ bill, how do I cancel the payment without going through my bank branch?....I'd rather have the money and not a credit on my account,at the moment times are rough lol
Why is it that when I use the online system to pay my bill earlier than the due date, I see that my amount due has been doubled? It should say that I only owe $58.00, but it shows $116.00 instead. I have never missed a payment. I don't understand this. Please explain.
Hello all! I am a new customer who switched to Cricket on 7/8/22. I brought 2 lines and ordered the plan/phones all online because they didn’t have the phones we wanted in stock in the store and they recommended us to it all online. After reviewing my monthly statements- I see I was billed twice on 7/8/22 and again on 7/27/22- all three the same charged amount. When I reached out to customer service they see where I was billed 3 times, but they claim all on the same date. They are also saying they are unable to process a refund of the $421.96 that I was overcharged. They offered a credit to my account, but my account is showing a credit of 166.14 already- no idea where that came from. These billing practices and lack of appropriate resolution has me afraid I have made a terrible choice in choosing a carrier! Anyone have any advice on a better way to get this resolved. They told me to contact my bank- my bank did not overcharge me- Cricket did. I fail to see how this is good business pr
I honestly feel that this policy they came up with a few years ago is ridiculous. If you make a brige pay and fail to pay the rest by date, you pay the whole thing, including what they already got from. So if you paid 70 and forget now you pay 133 which means you paid 200 dollars, plus that reactivation fee. Why is this even necessary to do? I have been a cricket customer since 2004 and this is the worst they have come up with. They need to do away with this.
I've been with Cricket for more than 5 years I set a bridge pay multiple times they do not explain the policy of bridge pay they just take your money and let you figure out your own if you missed the due date that bridge pay is set up the money that you use for bridge pay it's not apply to your account you have to pay the full balance in order to get your service turned back on that is not what they explain to you when you set it up I spent more money on Bridge pay and still lose my money for bridge pay in order to double down to pay the service that is not acceptable you do not take people money like that and you don't explain it to your customers you treat your customers so poorly your services are poor you have buffering low speed service Dead Zone your phones don't work half the time I received a upgrade and it did not work it was nothing I could do about the phone I spend more money for nothing you have a app that's called added up which is the third party it applied to my account
Alright, so I go to pay my phone bill the other night. The same way I have done for the last 6 months. I selected PayPal. Once logged in my PayPal balance was the selected payment method. The cricket website was having a very hard time moving past that step. I waited a couple of hours, tried again. The website was being weird still. I check my PayPal account and there’s my payment authorization in progress for the payment. I didn’t think anything of it and said to myself that the next day it will go through and there’s no way my phone will be suspended. That was August 31st. Pupal says it’s the merchant and not them, but there is no way for me to cancel or anything else until at least 30 days have passed. I called cricket because there is absolutely no way I could be without a phone, but they told me that the problem was with paypal they aren’t showing any indication of payment and that they aren’t responsible for making authorizations. My phone is turned back on thanks to bridge pay.
