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.
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
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
On our way back from vacation, our phone lost connectivity. Nothing out of the ordinary for Cricket but after a couple hours, i did become concerned. So I contacted Cricket that stated both my wife and I had their cell phones ported to another carrier. They've been investigating for seven days now. Seven! What that really means is they hope i just go away. Today, i woke up and my Cricket phone was wiped clean. Cricket obviously sent a signal to it. Which wiped out my historic data/texts. And all pictures/videos. So, i said enough of this BS and filed a BBB complaint. Not that it will do anything. Is it too much to hope for a giant meteor taking out Crickets HQ?
I haven't been able to log in in 2 years. This is my semi annual attempt to get support. When I try to reset my password, I'm told there are new security procedures and I should call in. When I call in, the person has no idea what I'm talking about. They talk me through the password reset just so I can read them the error message. Then they open a ticket, and I never hear about it again. Again, would love to actual log in into my account.
My phone was abruptly turned off "no service" 10/28/19 around noon. On 10/26 Cricket auto took my payment thru my credit card. When I went to Cricket Office, they said my phone was canceled and transferred to T-Mobile. At the T-Mobile Office, they had no record. I went on line with Customer Service and I had my account number, PW, and security answer, but can't recall my PIN. I am a 76 yo senior and not especially tech savvy. Why can't they reset my pin and help me out?? My cell is my only phone. Pattycakes25
So in spite of the fact that the organization has been available for around 20 years, a few takeovers and a rebranding effort from Charter to the Spectrum brand may have confounded customers with respect to which email customer they have a place with.Be that as it may, during every one of these changes, email clients got the opportunity to keep their email account with the underlying certifications.What has changed, however, was the immediate access login page. Existing clients are currently being diverted from their unique login page to the Spectrum email login address where they can enter their qualifications.This is substantial for all previous Road Runner/Time Warner Online, Bright House Networks, or Charter customers.
I can make calls and send texts but I am not receiving calls or texts on 2 different phones /lines on my account and I have 16 days left before my next bill. It seems to happen mostly when my husband and I are in our house. Every once and again We will get a few texts in a row or a call but then it stops for about 23 hours for around 4 days now. I called cricket and they have no idea. I was on the phone with them for 2 hours. They had me check my volume. Really I am not showing a call coming in at all nor do I get missed calls and texts. They checked the tower nearest me and said it's fine, had us switch or SIM cards then switch them back, went through a few setting things, and it's the next day both phones/lines are still doing it. I have an LG phone and my husband's is a ZTE.Sometimes I'll get like 3 texts from 8 or more hours ago. Please help!! Any ideas????
Hello,I’ve got two lines which I ported to Cricket. Whenever I have ported lines before, they are automatically updated in the registry of phone numbers showing the new carrier.However, my lines do not show under Cricket/Att but h2o wireless which was my carrier before the last one.Is it possible for Cricket to update that?
So here is why I regret having cricket as my phone carrier.I have 3 phones on my account; my phone and a phone for my son and one for my daughter. Back in October both my childrens phone began malfunctioning so I put in a claim for 2 new phones through Asurance. We received the 2 new phones, so I reached out to a cricket rep to help with activation, which was successful. August of this year my daughter lost her phone so I put in another claim for her lost phone. meanwhile my sons phone was placed on the block list so I called cricket to find out what was going on with my sons phone, the cricket rep put in a ticket to remove the phone from the block list and restored his phone as well. A few hours later my sons phone was block from making calls, taxing or using internet once again. so I called cricket back and was told that assurance had to unblock his phone. so I contacted Assurance and was told that back in October the 2 phones that I received were activated under opposite phone numbe
I've had service through Cricket since February of this year. A few months ago, my mother asked me if she could add my phone line to her family plan so it would give all of us a lower monthly payment. (Me, my mom, my brother, and my boyfriend) I agreed to the switch, fast forward to today, my mother and I had a falling out, and even though I pay for my own phone line, she was able to suspend/cancel/disconnect my service because she's the account holder. My question is what happened to my phone number and how can I reactivate/restart my service?
I ordered my new phone and line yesterday and i got a email today saying that i need to update information to confirm the number transfer, but when i click on the button to update my info, it just sends me to a page saying "Transfer Delayed" and says that they are woking to transfer my number, and then gives me a option to track my order, which also says processing. If anyone knows how to help me itd be much appreciated, i dont have a phone right now and need one fast i dont want any delays
I just don't understand why CRICKET doesn't AUTOMATICALLY block spam text messages with NO Number Attached......... I am so tired of getting Spam messages that I can't block.Also, why does Cricket send block numbers to VOICEMAIL??? And why doesn't Cricket start AUTOMATICALLY block all spam numbers?
I have a complaint regarding the refer a friend program. After chatting online with a representative just to know how to contact customer service because whenever you call there is no option to speak with a representative and after wasting more than one hour on the phone and the answer I get was a "NO"!!!!!!!! Are you serious???? There is no one who can help me????? I am really frustrated and upset and angry at this poooor customer service.
I placed an order for a new service with Cricket. The add says next business free delivery. I have spent over 3 hours with their uneducated customer service and I still have not received my phone nor have I received any tracking number. This is not a good way to start a new business relationship. I am about ready to cancel my order. At this point I cannot say that I have had a good experience nor can I say that I would recommend their service. What I can say is BUYER BEWARE!!!
