Phone mistakenly reported stolen. How to remove?
I have 2 lines on my account. I had 1 phone stolen. I reported it. They screwed it up so many times I kept having to call. In the end they reported my not stolen phone stolen. They actually never reported the stolen phone stolen until I called again and then they put both on stolen. I tried telling them that this one wasn't stolen, they told me to wait 2 weeks while they tried to get it off the stolen list. I did, and when I contacted them again they said it couldn't be removed, my phone is now junk and cannot be used on any carrier. I was told there was nothing they can do but I can upgrade and get a new device. Yeah, thanks.So cricket pretty much stole my phone.I got to say, I like Cricket a lot. I recommended them to a few people who now feel the same. But man, when you need customer service you're screwed. I haven't tried in person at a store though.So yeah, any ideas how to get my phone back? I have pictures on there of me from years ago before Cricket stole my phone. I can
Not Really 7 Day Return Policy
My daughter bought a phone based on a recommendation from the store. It doesn’t do what she expected. No problem 7 day return. Not really. She bought the phone at 1:53 on a Sunday and her grandfather passed away that day. She is a nurse and works 11 hours shifts and could get back to Cricket before she had to fly from FL to NH for the funeral. She flys back Saturday. Told her bring it with you we will return it in NH. Found out it has to be returned to the store you purchase it at. She gets home Saturday at 10pm. Called customer service and they said no exceptions if she can’t get there by close of business on Saturday they won’t accept it. Called the store they said they would but Cricket system won’t allow it. I should have until 1:53 on Sunday that would be 7 days. So is this false advertising especially considering the circumstances. I plan on filing a dispute and going to arbitration. Wondering if anybody has advise on doing this?
Online Order Text Notifications
I’m wanting to order a phone from Cricket for someone on my plan as a Christmas gift. It would just be an upgrade for their line. My question is when you upgrade online will all phone numbers on the account receive a text about the upgrade? I want it to be a surprise and don’t want this person receiving a text that their line has been upgraded. Help please. Thanks!
Temporary Password for Simply Data Account
I have been trying to Activate My Simply Data Account and link the number. The issue I have is that the temporary password is sent via text. Since the device I'm using is not a phone how would I go about completing activation? Yes, the device (Netgear 1120) was approved as compatible when I entered the imei #
What is going on? Cricket you have really dropped the bomb. I have been online for an hour and half waiting to chat with a sales expert to purchase new phone and port in number. I called and received a live person within 3 minutes but for some reason I can chat online and they can't help me with online purchase. I am fixing to find a new provider. #verydisappointedcustomer
not receiving temp password text
for some reason our online account was removed by cricket. customer service had me set up a new one but out of 5 line son the plan not a single one is receiving the temporary password text. Tech support continues to close the cases we open if we do not answer their attempt after 1 try and we have no way of calling them back. Anyone know of a way to get the temp password sent via email or to some other phone number?
Unable to Upgrade a Phone on my Family Plan
For the past week I've been trying to upgrade my son's phone on our 5 line plan to an Apple XR (128 GB). So far, no success. I progress to the last screen but when I click "Place Order" I get "Oops! Something went wrong. Please contact Customer Support". I've tried on muiltiple days with different credit cards, no luck. I went to the Cricket store, but they admitted that they didn't know what the problem was and they couldn't help me. They tried to ring me up in the store with no luck. I then called customer support, twice. The first time was worthless (after taking nearly an hour to reach a human). The second time (yesterday) the person said they did something to fix the issue and to try and puchase again after midnight. Well, I just tried and I received that same error message. I'm almost to the point of switching my entire family to another carrier.
Port out question
Hello Cricket Wireless, Just wondering and I hope to get answers from other customers of yours.. I been reading a few things online lately about your network like very horrible reviews from numbers getting stolen by someone porting out the number without them actually permission to do so, and those who left the network after porting in.. Say wanted to port back to Verizon Wireless.. The port took them like 3 weeks to complete.. How likely will this be if i come to cricket and find out.. That the network is the worse?

My address "cant be found" by crickets website software when i try to activate my SIM card online???
I purchased a cricket SIM card through Amazon. I went through the "easy setup"website forms and everything works fine until I send my address, which is a regular street address in a rural area, and it refuses to accept it. It actually states "NOT FOUND" specifically when I type in my city. Customer service took so incredibly long, I tried to call twice and while on hold for exhorbitant amounts of time my phone battery died. TWICE.Cricket needs to upgrade their website software if they actually want customers. If I don't hear back from someone Im forced to return their SIM card and take my business somewhere else.Frustrated in WI
So on today my lines were automatically ported into Cricket with out me having a SIM card to use my phone with the Cricket network! I am so upset now because my order still haven’t been received and now I don’t have a working phone! Ugh! I will never be using Cricket every again whenever they fix this problem! Ugh!

Supervisor lied to me - How to report a bug to someone who can fix it
Shirley R., a supervisor, just lied to me in chat. There is a bug that is keeping me from buying a phone online. I've waited 24 hours (several times), I've tried a different credit card, and I've contacted my credit card company. The problem is at Cricket. She told me that she would "escalate it to our digital team so that they can look into it." When I asked her when, she admitted that she had no way to contact them. She lied to me! The only way this bug will get fixed is if someone lets your firm know about it. Instead, your folks lie. Sickening!Who can I contact at Cricket that can resolve some programming bug that is stopping a long-time customer in good standing from buying a phone with a perfectly good credit card? Seriously, what kind of firm doesn't want to know about problems like this?And who can I contact to let Cricket management know that lying to customers with "wait 2 hours" or "wait 24 hours" type responses is
Disappointed with customer service
I have been on the phone with customer service for over 2 hours today and went to the local Cricket Authorized store to get and issue resolved with the day ending with the cricket repesentive hanging up with myself and the rep at the store. This is not exceptable and my issue need to be fixed or I will not hesitate to switch service.
On autopay, yet service suspended
This is never ending. I am on autopay yet I woke to no service because I am told I have a balance of 15.00. No explanation and since I am on autopay it makes no sense. I did upgrade to a plan with more data but was never asked to make a payment. Then to top it off, I was charged 4.00 fee to apply a payment. Why would this happen?
I've been with Cricket for 20 years. One thing I fail to see is any customer appreciation for those who have been customers for a while. As an example, you can buy a phone for .0 if you bring your number to Cricket but if you want to upgrade it's 149. I think that should totally be the other way around. I have paid thousands to Cricket over the years and the least they can do is give me a good phone at .0 cost to me. The excuse I always hear from them is that I still get the phone cheaper than if I bought it somewhere else. So? Big deal. Then offer that to a NEW customer and reward the customers you've had for a while. I think that sucks and I feel I am always getting the short end of the stick with this company. So, why do I stay? Because I can.
Port out scam
On 8/19/19 a hacker gained access to my cricket account somehow. They changed my password then ported my phone number away from my sim card. I do not know how this happened, but i have read that this occurred with other cricket customers. At this point they accessed all my bank accounts and paypal account using text verification and "forgot passwords." They began to transfer money out using the zelle p2p functionality. They also tried to gain access to my email account, but failed. I have had to freeze all online accounts and reset my account numbers. They only way I was able to recover my phone number was to purchase a new sim card and then have it ported back in. When I explained the situation to cricket customer service no one could explain how this could happen to me or understood what i was referring too. Again, I have read multiple reports of this happening to other cricket customers. Order of events. Received text no
Port Out Scam Part 2
My account was shut off out of the blue. I had to get on a chat to find out. They've been telling me every day that they are looking into it and it will be 24-48 hours. Every single day. And then they said they would contact me. I said how. Not joking here.. they were going to call me. How f'ing stupid is their support. How is it possible to not have phone verification of some type? Either a text verification with a PIN or a physical phone call to the phone in which the individual reveals personal info that is not visible or accessible to a would be hacker. Would anyone be interested in a class action suit? I don't know about you, but its been a major inconvenience to me. I am having accounts compromised because of the verification codes that are being sent to the older number and so on... I am probably not far from full blown identify theft. jbogner2001 AT yahoo DOT comCricket did not even express any concern until I filed a BBB complaint. And they only ask
