First my number was unavailable, now it's suspended.
A few days ago my service stopped working and when I managed to get logged into the MyCricket app, it was listed as 'temporarily available". Yesterday I used the chat feature and it worked for about 14 hours. Then in the middle of the night it turned back off and is now listed as "suspended". I've never had this issue before, what can I do to resolve and stop it from happening again?
Fire the programmer of cricketwireless.com site and apps
1. This is the worst site , I have ever seen. Programming is absolutely terrible. Fire the person who is programming this site. He/She is costing cricket millions of dollars. 2. Menus for payment; I have a credit, yet the site can only request for me to use my credit card ???? No work around.3. There is no way to restart my plan by paying early (if data runs out).??? Payment is a very simple process folks. 4. So say I want to pay cricket to add say 15GB hotspot, $10 mid plan. There is a check box one time or monthly , with a upload and review plan button . I check one time, review (AND LANDING PAGE IS PROGRAMMED ON THE MAIN ACCOUNT PAGE) , apparently cricket can not handle this simple fee. It requests I must pay my next months bill , even if I suggest a one time payment? 5. Does the programmer actually go through the queries to CHECK WHAT CUSTOMERS GO THROUGH?6. . Customer service can see all the errors, but apparently they dont know how to contact THE PROGRAMMER!&
Hi there, I filed a dispute with all the evidence last November and mailed it to [Office of Dispute Resolution, Cricket Wireless LLC, 1025 Lenox Park Blvd., 5th Floor Atlanta, GA 30319] in November 2021 following the instructions on your website.https://www.cricketwireless.com/legal-info/notice-of-dispute.htmlAccording to your website, “A Cricket representative will respond within 30 days of receiving this form.”I have not heard back in about 5 months. I tried to contact customer service via chat and phone. But they said that it is directly handled by head-office and there is nothing they can do. Please advise what I should do.Should I begin arbitration by submitting a Demand for Arbitration to the American Arbitration Association?Thanks a lot.

Was it worth the headache?
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.
Unable to upgrade phone
I have been trying to upgrade three of the phones on my account. The website only allowed one phone in the cart at a time, so I went through the checkout process with the first phone. After that, the website would not allow me to check out with the second phone; I kept getting different messages about not being able to use that credit card (I tried multiple cards, and none worked), and also a generic “oops, something went wrong, please contact customer support.” When I chatted with customer service, they told me that I can only upgrade one phone at a time, and I have to receive and activate the first phone before ordering the second one. This is frustratingly slow, but I waited a week for the first phone to be delivered and I activated it. Then I tried again to complete the checkout process with the second phone. I still got the same error messages. Two more customer support people told me that I should just keep trying, or go to a Cricket store— neither could explain what was wrong wi
Planning to visit the UK
I will be traveling overseas to London later this month and will have my Galaxy S8 with me. What, if anything, will still work while I am in the UK? Specifically, will I be able to make phone calls, send/receive text messages via roaming cell network? What about via wireless internet? Will I at least still be able to access the internet, or does my phone essentially become a brick outside the US, Canada, and Mexico?
Unlock Phone Error
I have a IPhone SE 2 that I bought earlier this year. It was locked to Cricket for 6 months after I inserted the SIM card. When I would try to get the unlock code it was tell me you have 21 days, 18 days etc till your phone is eligible. Now after 6 months when I try to get the code I get the following error message: “Uh oh! Your IMEI is not associated with this phone number. Please select a different phone number to unlock.” I’ve only ever had this phone on my cricket account. Someone please help 😕
Called because Cricket did not send a email confirmation for my ordered phone
I used the Cricket Chat help this evening to find the confirmation number to check the status of my order because the website did not send me an email after my order when I ordered Friday. While waiting for a CSR epUPS delivered my phone shortly after 6pm. I told the CSR rep the phone had just arrived so she ended up helping me activate the phone. She was patient and kindit was a good experience, thank you Stella. Thelma F.
Port Out Scam 2020
Last year, almost to the day, my husband's and my phone number were ported from our phones and was used to gain access to our bank accounts and loans, as well as our credit cards. It was an absolute nightmare to get the numbers back and regain control of our finances. Fast forward to yesterday afternoon, it happened again. This time my husband realized what happened right away and called Cricket, but they were of NO HELP. They kept asking him if he was sure that I (his wife) didn't port the number or maybe it was someone else he knew. What the heck is that supposed to solve? No one at Cricket seems to know or care how to protect our accounts! Now whoever took my husband's number is getting a "replacement" credit card of ours and a balance transfer of $8,000 on another card! We haven't even hit 24 hours yet of this mess. Cricket is the worst at protecting its customers and even more so at helping them! How is it that easy for a stranger to pull a scam and steal a phone number
At the point of tears
My phone broke 12/28/21. I went in to my local cricket store and was told since i qualify for the 3g upgrade i could get a phone for free. My account had been suspended bc i took my sim card had popped out when the phone fell. After my account was restored, the Cricket store manager tried to set the phone up it showed i had to pay full price. This happened twice, at 2 different stores. I called customer service new years eve. I was told that yes, i qualified for the free phone which was the moto stylus BUT at the same time the phone wasnt showing as being free. I was told it might be because cricket had just updated their system which may have been why that was happening. I waited til January 2nd to try to get this resolved. After waiting over 20 minutes, i was told that i DID not qualify for the 3g upgrade. After i was told by 3 different people that I DID QUALIFY, suddenly i don't qualify. I broke down and cried because this is ridiculous. Ive been bullshitted for almost a week. Has
Does the iPhone XR need to upgraded
We have two iPhone XR phones on our account and we are getting messages that they need to be upgraded for the 5G switch. We do not wish to upgrade these phones at this time, plus they are still for sale on the Cricket Wireless website. Are they still going to be functional after February?
terrible customer service in the Columbus Indiana store
I went into the Columbus Indiana store to ask for help on a claim. I had Insurance on a phone and the guy told me that I didn't ask to speak to another employee. He stated he was only one working there he got upset that I asked to speak to someone else he said his name was Robert. He said he was the manager this happened two days ago. When you wrote his first name down he put Robert and then tore it up cussed me out and told me to leave the store said he was going to call the cops I didn't want any further problems so was just going to file complaint online and turn into the Better Bureau Business. Customer service is terrible i've been with you guys for 2 and 1/2 years on a family share plan of six phone lines two separate accounts my wife has lost her phone and we had insurance on it paying $11 a month it was a iPhone 10s I think this guy needs to be fired I will be switching companies here in the next few days can somebody please get back with me and let this be known to HR or someb
Really fed up with the service and dont know what to do?
I am completely fed up with the service from this company. I have a family plan and my brother's phone has been locked out as reported stolen. No one in our family reported the phone stolen and we've been calling multiple times, again and again, to tell them the phone isn't stolen and every time we call we got told the same generic response we will look into it and fix the account. It has been 2 weeks and the phone line has not been fixed. We are about to get charged and the phone has had no service for 2 weeks I'm upright exhausted with calling and being told the same bullcrap. I don't know what to do anymore or where to talk to and go to get help for this problem.
Ok so I switched to cricket and got IPhone Se for $50 for me and my daughter, plus a WiFi device. The dude charged me 3 activation fees at $25 each and then here’s the best part he charged me tax on the full price of both iPhones. So I payed tax on $900!! My total went up another $100 lol who’s ever heard of something like that
I was told by a chat associate that I could file an official complaint here. Customers should be able to see their own call logs from their account. I need them to prove something to the state and was told I need to hire a lawyer, who will need to get a court subpoena for me to get the records. This is absolutely ridiculous. It is a very minor issue that does not require judges or lawyers.
Phone & Text Logs
I DEMAND TO KNOW THE U.S. CODE OF LAW, THAT CRICKET WIRELESS IS REFERENCING, WHEN THEY TELL THEY CUSTOMERS THAT THEY HAVE TO OBTAIN A SUBPOENA, IN ORDER TO ACCESS THEIR CALL &TEXT LOGS, ON THEIR OWN ACCOUNT?I WAS TOLD BY A CRICKET CSRep THAT THIS SUBPOENA DEMAND IS A CRICKET WIRELESS ...POLICY. THE LAST I KNEW ABOUT U.S. LAW, IS THAT ANY POLICY NEVER OVERRIDES THE LAW, AND ESPECIALLY CONSTITUTIONAL LAW!!AND CRICKET WIRELESS HAS NO QUALIFIED IMMUNITY, THAT MAKES THEM EXEMPT FROM COMPLYING WITH U.S. CONSTITUTIONAL AND FEDERAL LAW! SO, BY ... WHAT BUSINESS RIGHT AND WHAT U.S. CODE OF LAW, GIVES CRICKET WIRELESS THE AUTHORITY TO DENY THEIR ....PAYING CUSTOMERS... THEIR PRIVATE, INFORMATION, ON THEIR ACCOUNT, THAT CRICKET WIRELESS IS BOUND BY LAW TO COLLECT AND MAINTAIN??!! IF I DON'T GET THE ANSWERS TO MY QUESTIONS, POST HASTE, I'M TAKING THIS MATTER TO MY STATE REP., SENATOR TED CRUZ, THE U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL OFFICE AND THE U.S. CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE FOR CELLULAR COMMUNIC
Line suspended in error
I ordered a phone upgrade on 08/14/2020, on 08/17/2020 it was delivered. I went online to activate it and was unable to, received a message to call support. I called in, they could not activate the phone & told me it'd be fixed within 24 hours. It is now 08/24/2020, almost a full week of no phone (8 pm tonight marks 1 full week). My line shows as suspended & when I call in to Customer Service the only response I receive is that it will be corrected within 24 hours.This is not helpful. I NEED a working phone. Please reinstate my line. I cannot count how many times I have called in, chatted in, always the same runaround, it'll be handled within 24 hours. IT'S BEEN A WEEK! I am missing important communication and if anything happens when I am without a phone I guarantee I am holding Cricket liable.This is ridiculous. Please help!
Messages not coming to hotspot
I was trying to set up my Cricket online account but the temporary password isn’t coming to my hotspot. I tried support and after the 6th time I had to tell the agent it was a hotspot, not a phone so no I wasn’t receiving texts from my friends on it...I gave up. I tried going into 192.168.1.1 and I could see messages there but they were all old (had to get a new SIM card). When I tried to to back into 192.168.1.1 I now get a message the site can’t be reached (tried several browsers on both a desktop and a separate phone).
Unable to Pay on Website
Does Cricket just… Not like money? I’ve been fighting for an hour to upgrade my phone. Between it continuously bouncing the amount I owe between $500 and $965, declining my credit card on their website, PayPal, and Google Pay, giving me a ‘kountSessionID is required’ error, and saying “our servers are struggling today”, I’ve given up.It’s been a while since a website was so bad I’ve considered switching providers altogether. I’m done jumping through hoops. Anyone else know how to resolve this? I’ve switched browsers, cleared my cookies - hell, I even went on incognito so there WERE no cookies to clear - and nothing. I’m getting tired of this. I just want to upgrade my phone and I shouldn’t have to jump through hoops and use cheat codes to figure out how.
