I’m dealing with the iPhone of my 98-year-old mother. She has suffered some cognitive decline during the past 60 days. She also fell last Sunday, was admitted to the ER, and has now moved to a nursing home. After 71 years, 7 months, and 18 days in that house, it’s likely that she’ll never go back.I can text the existing number via iMessage.The store tries to text a PIN to the phone, but it doesn’t go through (probably because it needs cellular service, which is what we’re trying to reactivate).I don’t know whether we’re still within the 60-day window to reactivate the same number.I have everything except the PIN. I tried to log in with number and password and am told that account is cancelled.The iPhone is her lifeline.I’m currently at a Cricket store, and am told that this store (and perhaps others) no longer has the ability to bypass the PIN.It seems to me that there has to be a way to escalate this, given the circumstances.Anyone know whom I might contact?Vince Lackner
I chatted online with an agent before I bought the iPhone SE promotion. Now cricket told me that the information from that agent was wrong. There is nothing they can do. I will need to continue with $60 plan for 3 months before I can change it. The agent I talked to before purchasing the order clearly told me that I can change my plan anytime after activae my phone. Cricket should honor the information from the agent. Attached is the relevant chat history a few hours before bought the iPhone SE (Oct 24th) on Cricket, I would be happy to forward the whole transcript if needed: USER: I will have to subscribe for the $60 plan to be eligible, or could I change my plan after the first month AGENT (Ron): While placing the order you need to select $60 UL more AGENT (Ron): For 3 month to get the device at $0.00 AGENT (Ron): However as soon as your services are active you can contact us we can change the rate plan accordingly USER: okay I see, so I have to subscribe the $60 when I place the o
A couple days ago, I went to my camera roll and saw this small section where my iPhone had generated 2 edits to 2 pictures on my phone. 1 photo had the levels adjusted to it, and the other turned a live photo into a stable loop/gif. For some reason, that section is gone and I don't see any options within my photos to make similar edits.I hope this all made sense, can someone tell me how to get it again? I thought turning the live photo into a stable gif was super cool and would love to do it to some other photos.
I have a huge problem.I’m currently in Spain, and I cannot use a temporary SIM card because my iPhone is still locked to Cricket—even though I have had this phone for over two years. Furthermore, I can’t even unlock it because the app has not been letting me log-in since I’ve arrived in Spain. The error message simply tells me to call customer support.But I can’t call customer support because, again, I don’t have any service. I feel checkmated by Cricket. Please help me unlock my phone so I can use a temporary SIM Card.
Hey all. I have been using the Macbook brick to charge my iPhone 12 ProMax, as the phone came with a USB-C input cable. It charges the phone insanely fast but also heats it up quite a lot. Do you think it is damaging to the battery? I reckon Apple has already approved such use but I couldn’t be sure. Thanks.
Hi all,My question is a two parter. First off, I will be purchasing a new iPhone outright through Apple store because my job gives me a discount. When I put my Cricket SIM card into my phone, will Cricket lock my unlocked phone? Second, if Cricket does lock the unlocked phone, can it be unlocked in a week or less if I decide to go to another carrier? I see that Cricket says you need to be a paid customer for 6 months with the device, but that only refers to phones purchased through cricket. If it can be unlocked in a week or less, how would I do that?
I've had a mobile hotspot for 3 months and this problem is getting worse. The device consistently shows a strong signal, 4 or 5 bars, but frequently my phone or laptop will say I have no internet connection, even though the Wi-Fi connection is also strong. This lasts anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. Even when there is a connection it's often so unstable that email will not download.Since the hotspot is for data only this makes it almost useless. I did a factory reset and it did not solve the problem.
In January about a brand new iPhone 12 May or June I switch to boost mobile lost my iPhone 12 in the middle of moving found it yesterday change back to Cricket Call to get my iPhone 12 took off blacklist Beings it’s on old account It can’t be done lady at Cricket support told me to go to the store they have a good deals on new phones so there was no help if anybody can tell me how to do this please
Both OS's are good in their own right, I always remain objective when comparing the two.One thing I wish android has that iPhone does so well is compatibility... iPhones paired with other apple devices just work instantly and without the need of setting anything up, its almost magic (cliché sounding I'm aware). Also apps.. they run better on iOS, are released first on iOS, and get updates quicker.I guess also a messaging app like iMessage. Hangouts kinda does the job but not really at the same time.Edit: I asked the iPhone sub the same type of question, let's see what they say lol.
I bought a new iphone 7 plus from cricket in the store on September 2019 and since i got it I noticed that the phone would restart every time the battery charged to97-100 percent and it would do that sometimes and now it does it more often what should I do did i get a faulty phone or was it not new ? They told me it was ..?
So. I use to be an At&t member. But I decided to pay a cheaper price for unlimited data. So, I moved to cricket. I HAD an iPhone I got through att that I owed money on. I just paid it off, and I want to use that phone at cricket. Can I do that? I don’t care if I have to unlock it, but I want to know if I can put my cricket phone number onto an iPhone I bought on att.
