Text Messages Delayed/Never Received
We switched two phones from Verizon and my work phone from Straight Talk all over to Cricket. All three are different versions of the iPhone, the newest being an iPhone 11 and the oldest being an iPhone 6. We immediately noticed texts messages can be extremely delayed, some never sending or being received at all. This happens on a daily basis. All phones have iOS up to date and all phones were troubleshooted with everything under the sun found on the internet. We also noticed things that use WiFi are now slower (also thoroughly troubleshooted), and we don’t get Ring doorbell notifications until two minutes after someone leaves our front stoop. Is this SIM card related? Server related? And ultimately, is this something that can be fixed? If not we will need to switch immediately, as my work phone often requires a prompt response to text messages.
Cricket Locked MY phone.
I have been a Cricket customer for over a year...I bought a new iphone XS at Best Buy with no sim card and no cell service contract, was told it will work with all providers. I removed the sim card (Cricket) from my old device, installed in my new phone and powered up, it worked immediately. About a month later I tried to switch service to Verizon who told me phone was compatible. Tried their sim card and doesn't work because Cricket locked my phone. Yes, MY PHONE, that I paid for in full. I have not been able to get Cricket to unlock my phone. I had to pay for another months service Or lose my number and still have a locked phone. What gives a "bring your device, pay as you go" company the right to lock my phone? I have spoken with Cricket support every day to get this resolved to no avail. They keep promising to call me back, still waiting.Verizon charged me for sim card and first months service before they would try the sim card. They told me
Cricket LOCKED my UNLOCKED phone
Cricket has basically HIJACKED TWO iphones on our plan with them and REFUSE to UNLOCK them!! I have been with Cricket for over a year and the phone was purchased from Best Buy as UNLOCKED!! When I went to another provider, they claim to have unlocked my phones, but that has yet to happen! I have gone 3 days without a phone and had to purchase a new one because Cricket REFUSES to release my phone that they never had the authority to lock! My daughter is now stuck and although she received a message that her phone has been unlocked, it has not! This should be a class action lawsuit!! How does Cricket get away with this????EXTREMELY DISSATISFIED CUSTOMER!
iPhone 12 Pro
I'm planning on purchasing an iPhone12 Pro. I'm assuming that it will work on Cricket and all I have to do is to purchase an unlocked phone? The only concern I have is that the Pro series has a different sized SIM card so if Cricket doesn't have that available, I won't be able to use the new phone. Does anyone have any info on that? TIA!
iPhone picture messages not working
New customer. I can’t send pictures to anyone. Turning off MMS does prompt a “MMS must be turned on” error, but doing so doesn’t help. I have tried resetting network settings. Didn’t help. iMessages and text work. I have no place in settings to edit APN settings as I have with other carriers.iPhone 6, iOS 12.1.2
iPhone XS hotspot
I noticed the new iphone XS isn't listed on the eligible hotspot phones page, but all of the other iphones are. Has this page just not been updated yet, or is hotspot not available for the iphone xs. If it's not currently available do you have an ETA on when it will? I need mobile hotspot and will have to change to a new service provider if this isn't available soon.

Call Problems with iphone 7 plus
When making or receiving call after a few minutes I can hear the person on the other line but they can't hear me. This is very frustrating. I always thought that Iphones are good but am very dissapointed in this one. My husband has a motorola and has no problems on his. We are both on cricket so I don't feel its a network problem. i have the latest updates on my phone. Basically all my expensive phone is good for is texting and internet. was wondering if anyone else is having these problems with the iphone 7 plus? Thanks!

Iphone 12 series
Good afternoon! Next week, October 13, 2020, Apple is having an event pertaining to the Iphone 12. A couple days after the event next Tuesday, Apple is also supposed to release at least two out of four new models of the iphone 12 for pre order. Will cricket be allowing any of the four new iphones to have access to its 5G network? How soon will cricket post about this information?
How nitpicky is apple with their trade in program?
I have an XS in good condition. It’s been in a case since day 1. It does have a couple of small nics on the bottom and a couple of tiny scratches you could see in certain lighting/ angles. I’d love to trade in and get the 420 ( pretty much exahttps://nox.tips/ctly the same as I’d get from swappa after fees and shipping), but I don’t want to open my new iPhone 11 only to get an offer for $290. Are they strict with their assessments?https://xender.vip/
Unlocked Phone on Mobile Network? Possible issues
SM-960U he said opened got it through T Mobile. I simply opened and turned it on and amazingly it has the ATT firmware. I am extremely enraged on the grounds that when somebody says "purchased through T-Mobile" what I believe is this is a TMobile telephone.WHile I hang tight for him to hit me up, what are the outcomes of running an AT&T opened telephone on TMobile organization. I am very MetroPCS. However, its worked by TMobile. Will I actually have the option to utilize the telephone like a TMobile telephone? What highlights will I miss. VoLTE? meandering on US Cellular?
I want to post this on my own thread just in case someone has a solution. Switched an iPhone 6Splus from ATT to Cricket. The same day and ever since, the battery drains so fast during texting. I can listen to a book all day, but with frequent texting the battery will be from full charge to near dead in 4 To 6 hours. Prior to switching, battery life was about a day and a half with normal use. This makes no sense to me but it’s hard to me to believe coincidence. Any ideas?
How do I use a ringtone song on Iphone 8?
I hate to admit how upset I am about iphone 8 not having an simple way to use a song as a ringtone or an alarm. I know it is just a ring tone, but I don't like something that's put on me. I don't really want to use canned ring tones, or buy ringtones from Apple. I want to use the same tunes / songs I used for years. Can anybody help? So irritated and can't help but wonder what kind of cheap money grubbing attempt is up to Apple to disable or delete this functionality.I want to use this song as a ringtone: https://kostenloseklingeltone.mobi/samsung-standard-11573/

Does Cricket lock my unlocked phone that wasnt purchased through Cricket?
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?
