I have a data only plan. My SIM card is in a security camera that is mounted 30’ up in the air on a telephone pole. I cannot access it, at least not without renting equipment to get me up there again. I am not able to create an account on Cricket or load the Cricket App since all requests for a password are texted to my device, which is inaccessible. Therefore, I cannot manage my bill or do anything else. It seems that Cricket support cannot add a new phone number which I can actually get messages on, nor do they send emails or even paper mail. How am I to manage my account if I cannot access it via the website or app?Cricket support has said that I need to pull my SIM card and put it into another Cricket phone to receive the messages to create my account. Frankly, if I have to rent a lift to pull my SIM card, I will be doing so to replace their data plan with someone else’s. Also, I don’t have another Cricket device and live far away from any Cricket stores. So, if I need to get up th
My name is michaeland I have been a long time customer of Criket wireless with multiple lines from y’all (2564868822) I am emailing y’all today because of the treatment I have received over the last few months I have been trying to upgrade my phone and add another line and bring a number over for at least four months now but every time I try I get lied too on the prices every time and promised credit which was not recorded like I was told it would be I am on a fixed income and can’t afford extra charges at the end I pay y’all every mounth my bill is due and have been for at least 2 years maybe more my personal cell phone has no sound at all so I am limited to only tex messages but I pay the premium price which is not y’all’s fault by no means but when you tell a customer a price they should honor what they say now yesterday was the worst treatment I have ever received as a customer to any company much less yall which I have been very loyal too I called yesterday morning around 7 am cen
I recently purchased a moxee hotspot device from walmart and went to set it up, I was told to add it to my existing account, I would be charged the $55 for the month of data and that I would NOT receive a credit for the 20 days I wouldnt have it on the current billing cycle I have, so I asked if I could set it up on its own account which the rep did. I want to be able to monitor the data usage so I can get a gauge of what I am using, figured doing a mycricket account would be the best bet, I would also like to be able to just log on and check the billing info ie. what card and all that as well When I go to set up the new account, it wants to send a text message to the number they gave me for the hot spot, which I did, however having tried 3 different times, I do not receive a text message in the settings where I can see on the hotspot device, I have even tried to text it from my own phone and still nothing, I have tried to power down and reboot, even as far as a factory reset and stil
So I have been a Cricket customer for 7 days...and I already regret it! I signed up my family and I on a Monday. Bought 2 new phones. Wanted to buy a third but it wasn’t in stock. Had the kid order it. Came in Thursday night. Went in Friday to have it activiated...it was supposed to be $400...tried to charge me $1200. He ordered the wrong phone. Tried to blame it on me. Said if i wanted the $400 phone I would have to get it on line...but it would cost me $600. I would now be considered an upgrade...7 days later it was an upgrade...even though I never bought one to begin with. Called good ole customer service. Sat on hold for 13 minutes. Got hung up on. Called back. Waited on hold for 12 minutes. Was on the phone for 40 minutes just for the guy to nicely tell me there was nothing he could do. What kind of jacked up company is this? Oh...and there aren’t any contracts...but don’t try and use the phones you just paid outright for. They’re locked to Cricket for 6 months.
I was referred by my friend and got the following email.Following the instructions on the email, I signed up for the cricket service. After receiving the SIM card, I activated my service online. However, when I tried to enter the referral code received bu email, it says I am not eligible. I contacted Cricket customer service, but they said that I need to purchase my plan via a special link, which is not mentioned on the email or online. I was so disappointed: I followed every step on the intruction that I received, but I still can’t get the referral credit. Hi Friend,Your Cricket Wireless referral code is: NOT SHOWN HERE Your code expires in 30 day(s).Now what?Sign up for Cricket service at cricketwireless.com/plans or visit a Cricket store. Activate your service and create an online account via My Account or the myCricket app. Enter your unique referral code, in My Account or the myCricket app in the next 30 days. You and your friend will each receive a $25 account credit after 60 d
Cricket has, yet again, decided to close their customer service to their customers hours before their listed hours. This has been going on for months and every rep I’ve brought this up to just says I’m lying and must not know what time it really is. Well, right now I tried it again at 9:44pm ET and was told to come back when they’re open, even though they are open till 11:00pm ET every night. Cricket needs to update their hours to let people know when they are actually willing to help their customers instead of just helping whenever they feel like it at random times of the day.
I just bought a new device directly from Apple and transferred my service from my other Cricket device. I’ve been with Cricket since February 2015. I brought my own device to Cricket each time I upgraded. After this last transfer, I found out that Cricket has locked my device to Cricket, because I do not meet their criteria for unlocking. The criteria are that you must have had service with Cricket for at least 6 months, you must not be committing fraud with the device and you needed to purchase the device from Cricket. But, Cricket allows customers to bring their own device, it doesn’t say, but if you do, it will be locked to Crickets service forever. I brought in an unlocked device that could be used on any network, I’ve had service with Cricket for almost 7 years (which I believe makes me a pretty loyal customer). The first phone I brought to Cricket was not locked, now this second device is locked to Cricket and before I knew all of this I just activated a brand new unlocked
Had a problem with my wife’s phone, voice mail was not working correctly and we needed additional storage space. Took phone to local store, there were 3 other customers in the store and 1 clerk, who was trying to service everyone at the same time. I explained my issues and without even looking at the phone, she said the phone was old and could not be fixed and I had to buy a new one, and this one is the one I needed to buy. I asked for a model that was simple to use, but that request went right over her head. Asked if ALL of the photos and messages would be transferred over and was told yes. She transferred data, but not all as I was to find out later, she gave me the phone and a bag and said thanks. No intro to phone, I spent 2 hours sitting in the store trying to understand the phone. Had to figure out how to turn it on and off, answer the phone. When I tried to place a call I found the number for the phone was not correct, she had entered my number and not the number of my wife’s l
So for the last 3 months I have recently found out that my phone has been using anywhere between: 2 to 4 GB of data around the same time(s) (3:30AM and 10:20AM). This shouldn't be possible, because I am asleep and all my apps are turned off and all the settings for the apps only use Wi-Fi.After noticing this, I decided for the last several weeks to not only close out my apps, but to put my phone into airplane mode and then turn off my phone before bed. To my dismay, this seems to have no effect. The report still saying that I am using data somehow even though there should be no feasible way this is happening. The only thing I can think of is Cricket wireless has an issue with their data usage tracker or a data hacker got a hold of my information and is now scalping data from my account. I have tried to contact customer support from Cricket, but was told that "my phone was on, the data was being used, and that the system is accurate and it's on me". I'm honestly at my wits end. It's be
Cricket wireless Is a bunch of low life FUCKING THIEVES!!!! I bought one of their new phones and they refuse to either import my number or activate my phone with a new phone number, its been over 4 weeks and the lying fuckers keep saying the same thing, ”it will be imported by tomorrow at 3pm” and of course it never happens, and one of their customer service people even told me I’d have to buy another $30 to $40 dollar plan in order to activate my cricket wireless phone with a new phone number, so they’ve already gotten around a hundred dollars from me without giving me any service and then they actually want more money! FUCKING THIEVES!!!!
I have a cricket number now on an existing account with someone else. I want to keep my number and start my own new account. I have an unlocked iPhone se now with a cricket SIM card that was working on the cricket network. How do I go about setting up my new account and keep my current phone number?

I just got this message from okeymonitoring. It noticed a change in sms routing. I'm also experiencing issues receiving texts. Cricket support is closed. Any idea what I can do?OkeyMonitoring was something I signed up for a while back and just forgot about it. It informs you when someone is possibly trying to intercept your texts. What worries me now is that I'm only receiving texts intermittently. I'm really hoping this is some sort of glitch and someone isn't trying to access my accounts using 2FA. I don't want to login to change this if my texts are really being intercepted. I'm asking my family to send texts and I'm only getting maybe 1/4 of them?
My phone has been acting weird for the last week and a half or so.. When I make a call it either says "emergency only" or doesnt let me complete a call due to "airplane mode being on" I check the settings and it doesnt show that it is on.. I switch it just to be sure any how (from on to off) and it didnt work.. Restarted the phone.. Took the battery out etc NOTHING IS WORKING. My texts wont send.. Can't call or recieve calls.. It is weird. My service keeps going in and outWhat do I do?
I have been having sexual harassment calls for months also people calling hanging up. I talked to the same employee 4 times in 3 months begging for a phone number change she promised I would get it straightened out with cricket and I would get texts with my new phone number. I have been with cricket from the 1st month you opened up. Do to your lack of responsibilities of throwing such a serious issue guess yall don't realize that some of us don't have $15 to change my number but that's just shows you have no care in the world for your customers but it can lead to the lock of honesty, caring, loyalty which you have from me why do I get treated differently cuz I m on the other side of the desk. How would cricket ever possibly know if whom is continueing with the scary nasty calls hadn't killed me due to your lack of good customer care. I don't have the $15 dollars I'm totally disabled. My other complaint is i have sent my sister in for a refer a friend 2 x s your careless staff couldn't
