Cell Strength goes down while on Wifi
I've noticed that my cell strength goes down while on WiFi (only 1 bar). If I turn off WiFi, my cell signall strength usually goes to 5 bars at first, then will decrease to 3 bars or fluctuate between 3 or 4 bars or sometime full strength, but it seems to mostly stay at 3 bars, although sometimes it wil go as low as 1 or 2 bars. First of all, is it normal for the cell strength to go down while on WiFi? Also, if I'm sitting in one place for a while, is it normal for the cell strength to fluctuate between 1 or 2 bars to 3 bars. I've even noticed it will go to full strength (cell bars) down to 1, 2 or 3 while I'm sitting in the same spot (and not on WiFi) and then go back to 5 bars, then back down again. Why is there such a fluctuation in cell signal strength while sitting in the same spot? Keep in mind, this is while I'm not on WiFi. Usually on Wifi, the cell signal strength decreases, but I noticed that when I turned on WiFi just now, it also fluctuates. While on Wifi, it'll usually sta
Blizzard won't accept Cricket Wireless!
I need to enter my phone number on my Blizzard account for an added layer of protection. I have the usual contract, pay by the month and can receive texts and all that. However Blizzard tells me that there is a code on my phone put on by Cricket which will not allow my phone to be used on their site. What is this code they are talking about? And can it be taken off? This is my only phone and I really don't want to switch to another plan at the moment.On Blizzard's forum there are many people having the same problem as I am using their Cricket plan phones on their website. Perhaps Cricket can contact Blizzard and figure this out?
Looking to Buy LG Harmony 4
LG Harmony 4 I am as of now taking a gander at updating my LG Escape 3 that I have had for the last ~47 years, and am taking a gander at the telephones recorded by my transporter Cricket. Does anybody have any understanding/proficient assessments on the Harmony 4? The $140 value stage they have on it for overhauls is about the most I feel great spending on a telephone, my Escape 3 has done well for me up until this point. The primary things I am planning to improve with an overhaul is having a superior camera, and less applications smashing since I made my telephone gbwhatsapp think excessively hard. That and playing music eats battery life like distraught. The Harmony 4 appears as though it would deal with the vast majority of that. Or on the other hand does anybody have an alternate recommendation for me to take a gander at? I could do without any apple items, and incline toward a telephone that fits in my grasp like my Escape, so something around a similar width (2.81") would be lik
New LG Harmony 4 - Not receiving text notifications
Hello,I just bought a new LG Harmony 4 phone and I am not receiving text notifications. That is, I don't receive an audible tone or vibration or screen message when a text message arrives. I do get the text messages, but no notification of them. I have tried to adjust the notification settings for the Messaging app, but I am only able to receive notifications if the screen is on. That is, when the phone is on standby with the screen off, I do not get the text message notifications.I realize that this is a new model, and that the behavior may be a software bug. Can you help me to fix or work around this problem?Thank you.
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.
Were on Phone memory are vissual voice mail files stored
I KNOW for a fact that visual voice mail stores messages on the phone as files. They can be played back LONG after being deleted from regular voice mail directly as long as left on the phone in visual voice mail, and can be played even without a sim car or internet connection...so they are stored on phone for sure. . WHERE...what is the file path to the message files??? Other places in this forem people say they are not stored on phone... they are, as the above proves... I cannot fine where, for saving the files to my computer hard drive. CAN someone please give the path to the files on android. THANK you much!
Using many apps, top portion of screen goes black
I now have two screenshots of this irritating feature I can't seem to figure out how to disable. I'm using a pretty new LG Fortune 3, running Android version 10.What happens is, I'll be using some app, maybe scrolling or otherwise interacting with it, when suddenly, my app is pulled down to the lower 3/4, 2/3, or lower 1/2 of the screen, leaving the upper portion of the screen as black, with small print saying "tap here to go to full screen."What is this "feature" called, and how do I disable it? Thank you.
Security Error. Phone Locked
I have never flashed any custom firmware or rooted this thing. I would add more details but my phone keeps restarting to this screen. Clearing cache in recovery let's it boot again but soon locks after a little use. I have no idea what's going on any help would be appreciated.just wanted to mention the cracks are on the Whitestone dome screen protector and the phone has been in a case since I bought it. It's still in immaculate condition. Update1: I have decided to reflash this myself, it took awhile but I found a June patch Odin image of the exact baseband version my phone is running right now. Unfortunately because I don't want to pay for a premium membership from samfrew.com I am stuck waiting 15 hours @ 115kb/s but it's still faster than tinychat @ 15kb/s. I used to do all rooting and romming from the early android years (Epic 4g, Epic touch 4g, note2) so I'm fairly familiar with what I'm doing. Since I am flashing official firmware with official tools there shouldn't be any s
I just bought the LG Stylo 6 which is an awesome phone for $276 or $299 if you count the fact they charged my debit card the next day $8 for Cricket Protect and $25 for activation for total of $33. I thought activation was free on online orders. Anywho, they sent me a shipping label that has a RA number that's different from the RA number i was told to write down. So, does this mean the label RA number is for the return and the one I was told to write down and tape to the return box is for the replacement phone? The phone I received from online order has a smash back cover with is made of glass. So, does this mean I am def getting a replacement and if so are they shipping it now or do I have to wait until my phone is received back to their warehouse? If i wont receive it until I ship mine how long will it be before I get my new phone? I really need my phone asap as it's used for my business. Is getting my phone first an option? Im drooping it off at UPS tomorrow morning 9am sharp. Do I
Return policy doesn't cut it

Phone or network problems?
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

Poor Quality Texted Videos
Hi All, I've been happy with Cricket for over 2 years now and my Motorola Moto G5 phone, with one exception. Whenever I send a video text or receive one, it is always very poor quality. I understand some companies throttle videos over the cellular network to various degrees. Does this happen to everyone else? Any way to work around it? Thanks!!
