So when Cricket made the older phones not work with their 5g, My Galaxy S8+ was no longer supported and I was forced to get a new phone. I had no choice but to take whatever phone was free because I had to have a phone for my job or I couldn't work. I picked the the Dream 5G. Because of its size. It worked flawless for 2 months then it began dropping the data connection. Every tower change it would not connect back to the data. It wouldn't drop a phone call but would never connect back to the data unless I switched data off and back on. It did this every time it changed towers and in the city that's every seconds. This went on for 2 weeks and I called customer service everyday trying to get this fixed. The local cricket store is absolutely useless with and phone issues. I filed a warranty claim, had to send in my Cricket dream 5g. Luckily I was able to borrow a LG phone from a friend and it worked great for the 2 days I had my sim card in it. Got my replacement Cricket Dream 5g today,
I have a Cricket Dream 5G that I had to purchase last November. I needed more memory so I installed a new Gigastone Micro SD Card 32GB. It is a UHS-U1 A1 Class 10, up to 90MB/s card - whatever that means. The SD Card was never used in any other device. I formatted the card in the phone and set it for only storage in the phone. I did not use the option to use the SD Card in both the phone and a computer.Within days, I started to get errors. The phone would randomly reboot. When the phone completed the reboot process, there would always be a message that the SD Card was missing or that the SD Card was corrupted.I reseated that card multiple times. I reformatted that card multiple times. The phone continued to randomly reboot.I took out that SD Card and put in a second SD Card. The second card was the same specifications as the first. It was also new and had never been used in any other device. Once again, I formatted the SD Card in the phone and set it for only storage in the phone.Once

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 recently purchased an unlocked Moto G100 5G phone directly from Motorola. I verified the phone’s IMIE number via the cricket website, which said it was compatible. But when I transferred the SIM from my old Moto Power G phone (approx 18 months old) into the Moto G100 5G phone, I am only connected to the 4G network. I reside in the Dallas, TX commuting area where 5G is available. Do I need to order another SIM card from cricket in order to get my new phone connected to the 5G network? the Moto G100 5G phone did download software from the cricket network and I did reboot it both times it downloaded software from cricket. But it still remains connected to the 4G network. What else do I need to do in order to connect to the 5G network
I was locked out of my phone while trying to set it up. Not sure what I hit but now I need a PUK unlock code (what the PUK is that) and pin #. It says the unlock code is 8 digits and the pin # is 4 digits. The message running across the screen also says I have to contact customer service but you’re closed… I have the plastic card the SIM came in but none of the numbers add up to the 12 needed. Can anyone help me decipher the strings of numbers on the plastic SIM punch out card or must I wait until the CRICKETS wake up!!!Thank you in advance for your help..
I have an unlocked LG G8X Dual Screen (LM-G850QM) that is now unable to make or receive calls. Any call I try to make immediately gets the “Call Ended” message. Any calls to my phone go directly to voicemail. Anyone have any idea on whats going on? According to the compatibility checker, my phone is compatible and will still work after the 3G shutdown. It’s been working fine until today.
There are Chinese and international version , European and US versions . Its US version works fine on safelink ( ATT) network . Your imei checker says incompatible , but is that due because there are various versions that are incompatible ? Since its US version that can use ATT network and unlocked would it work ?
My phone is only a few weeks old and is very slow! It takes 20-30 seconds from the time I hit the text message button to pull up the text message screen, and another 20-30 seconds from when I hit the “+” sign to begin a new message, until the screen appears for me to start typing the new message.It also takes the same 20-30 seconds from when I hit the camera button until a screen appears to take the picture.Tried restarting the phone and the issue persists……………….Any help or suggestion is much appreciated!Thank you!

Using a Motorola however, have used every phone under the sun for the last several years.I was get horrible reception in my home. I would say it's because I live by the airport however I get perfect reception in my drive way.I can hear them but they can't hear me.Is there something in my house that could be the cause?I don't think the issue is anything to do with current events as it's been happening for years.
