Hello! I have a new Alcatel SmartFlip phone on a different carrier. Thought I would take a shot with this question in this forum. I was surprised that I don’t seem to have the ability to send any emojis in texts - but I can receive them. I found an app in the Kai Store (OS is KaiOS 2.5.2) that I could download some to my phone as pictures in my gallery, so I can attach them to texts, but I get charged for the text as a “multi-media” msg (twice as much as regular text) by my carrier - I have a pre-paid monthly plan. When I receive texts with emoji in them, it’s only the regular text rate that I get charged, not the multi-media rate. So my phone reads them as regular parts of texts when I receive them, but I can’t send them unless they are attachments at twice the price. Seems odd to me. Hard to believe I don’t have the ability built in to send any emoji at all. Don’t suppose anybody knows if this phone can somehow magically be able to send emoji as part of normal texting?
I've got Acetel Onyx phone running Android 8.1. I've noticed not just my phone but other Cricket phones have the same features. One thing I'm missing is in Accessibility option... There's no option to use "Flash Notification" for the hearing impaired. I'm going nuts! Can anybody help or get this feature in the next update?
Trying to change the color of my lock screen clock. Its white, and with this new update it moved to the left and with my wallpaper i cant see it. Ive changed themes and it changes color, but with new themes it changes the wallpaper so i change it back, just for it to go white again. I cant read it at all and cant seem to find an option anywhere to change its color at all.
Last Sunday, my prior phone simply died that morning. I was staying at a friend's house in Burleson, Texas. I was taken to a local Cricket store and purchased a new phone a few hours later in the afternoon. Just days later I began to have problems with this phone. It wouldn't let me answer and was kicking the caller to voicemail after two rings.I live in Garland, TX and this is where I purchased my last phone and setup my account. I walked in this morning, and was then told, "Sorry, we can't do anything and you have to go back to the original store." This is 60 minutes away. The problem disney hub with this is that I can't drive. I have no way to get there. I simply don't see how on earth that as a customer for several years that a phone can't be returned at this store. I actually wanted to upgrade to a better phone. Yet, I rather take a slap in the face saying too bad.
My phone is purchased though Cricket, and it is Moto G7 Supra. I have one particular text message, that no matter what I do, or how many times I delete, it keeps on coming back. I can archive, but when I delete from archive, it won't bedeleted, although it says, It has, and gave me an option to "undo", which I will never undo anyway. I did clear cache and deleted data from message setting. How can I completely get rid of this messages off of my phone?
[US/Mexico border issue] Ever since switch to 5g, if my Dream 5g connects to a 1 bar cricket signal just south of the US border, my connectivity is screwed
Ok, so I’ve had Cricket service since 2019. This was never an issue, really - Never mattered what side of the border I was on. My older 4g phones would effortlessly switch back and forth between ATT Mexico and Cricket, depending on proximity to the Rio Grande. However, when I got Cricket Dream 5g phones (and thus 5g), our phones will sometimes insist on connecting to cricket in the US instead of ATT Mexico while riding around in Reynosa, where we spend most of our time. It’s like getting some kind of parasite! In Mexico, the US signal is obviously too weak to work, but no amount of rebooting/going in and out of airplane mode fixes this. On other phones, like my Samsungs, I could go into network settings and choose a provider. Are there any ideas on how this might be remedied? I worry more than anything about my wife sometimes when she’s in the downtown market near the border and her phone suddenly goes US mode. To even text me and let me know she’s ok, she has to walk to the internat
I am going to attempt to explain the situation the best that I can. My (current) Cricket Wireless Device is a Motorola - Moto G Pure but that is not the device that I want to request to be issued a Carrier/SIM Unlock Code for. The one inquiring about is a "ZTE - Sonata 3" and the network-service provider has been Disconnected for 6-8 months.Where would I begin for assistance with unlocking my old phone?
I've had a few issues of late with a BYOD Android phone, the Huawei Honor 6x, and I'm curious whether they're more so a problem with the phone itself or something to do with my SIM card. For the record, all apps are up-to-date, as well as the Huawei firmware. Android version is 7.0 (Nougat).1) Longest-standing issue. Let's say I send a text in a group that has 3 different people in it. If one of them responds, it creates an entirely new group in my message history that lists the 3 different people, plus my own phone number. And when I respond in that group, any messages I send are also "received" as though they're from someone else. SIM card issue or phone issue? For the record, I don't have the issue when using other messaging apps like Google Hangouts, GroupMe, or Facebook Messenger (all of which, I presume, use WiFi and/or LTE).2) Within the past week, I've had an issue in Messages, when I'm sending a text, it'll say "Sending..." for quite some time, before flagging it that the mess
I just bought an new in box, unlocked LG G6 phone. The phone is compatible per Cricket's website by entering the IMSI number. When we put in the SIM card, we are only getting 3g, instead of 4g LTE. The card was previously in the LG X Power and I had no problems.Any info would be helpful.
Long term user with multiple phones on Cricket. Upgraded one old LG phone/line to a BYOD Moto One Hyper (not 5g model) close to 2 year ago without any problems that wasn't resolved fast by perhaps a restart or closing an app then trying again. But recently having 75% of outgoing SMS / MMS reporting "Message Failed" may send after 3 or 4 attempts by clicking the Retry option. No patterns to suggest only to certain carriers or even on numbers being the issue as they can be resent eventually. Just been informed other contacts having similar problems being unable to message me as often being told Im not available or similar. WIFI 5Ghz also disconnected often from different router or ISP connections I've used for years, though may not be related. Lots of people with SMS issues that are similar and no definitive reason why or answer how it can be resolved. If the services are going to continue to be this unreliable then maybe it's time to move my business to a better (probably a little m
I've had cricket for maybe 9 months now. About 6 months ago I got that 4 lines for 100 deal. I got 3 new cert refurb phones for 30 plus the plan. Everything was ok except that my place get awful cricket service in my room and over my buds place same thing. So six months later I no longer have 2 lines( just 2 remaining me and my son's) and without the good deal now it no longer makes sense to stay with cricket. 80 a month with awful service. So now I'm waiting for the phones to be unlocked on the website it tells you how many days you have remaining. Then something weird happened my son's phone instead of being listed as the phone that it was was listed as a BYOD device which is not the case I bought three phones at the same time all from cricketwireless.com. Eventually my phone became a unlockable and it happened without a hitch then my girlfriend's became unlockable but hers got stolen and then my son's was supposed to become unlockable but it was listed as a BYOD device. this being s
I got a text saying I need to upgrade my phone as it's not compatible with the 5G network anymore. When I called to upgrade it, the rep said it's already been upgraded and gave me a tracking number. But I didn't do the upgrade! When I checked the tracking info, it was delivered to a different state!I tried opening a ticket about fraud but after an hour of back and forth, the rep was just trying to make me buy a new phone and finally they just gave me a link to a form that I need to fill out and send via registered mail to them. Why can't they simply open a ticket for me or Cricket have an online form for it?I may have to switch to a different provider tomorrow as Cricket won’t even activate my old phone again until this is resolved.
I’m getting SMS messages on my Turbo Hotspot 2. How can I send a STOP command to the senders?I assume these messages were subscribed to by the previous person who has my number.I was unsuccessful finding any help so far including Cricket agents who can’t seem to understand the issue.
I have an issue started on June 21,2023, I am not able to sign in my cricket account in the App on my Cricket phone or the website from Cricket wireless on my phone. I have done everything suggested by customer care service, and from the Developer from the play store.Customer care service asked me for the pin number for my account, my password, my username and phone number associated to my personal information to my Cricket account, I had to give it to them to see if they could fix my problem.Okay I go to my tablet and enter my information and wow I got in on the app and website from my Tablet, but can't change my information or password still yet. Because they're experiencing trouble with the app and website.Has my account been hacked? Because I gained access from another device linked to my phone? And was I stupid for allowing customer service have my log in information?
I was looking into buying a new phone and was looking to get a better Motorola model than cricket is currently offering. I was looking into buying a Motorola One Action and on the page it says that it is compatible with cricket, but I was curious if there were any known problems with the One Action and cricket network.
