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?
Anyone know how to get the moto one 5g to actually work with 5g? After a bunch of attempts I still show no option to connect to 5g under preferred network typeNew sim card installedSoftware is up to date Manual input for network already done, same as default Searched community for info but none available.
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
So after doing a bunch of reading, I guess during covid the Hotspot was unlocked for tons of people. That was nice but I’ve been paying for it all along. My previous phone was a Nokia 8.3 5g and the hotspot was working great for the last 9 months or so. Hotspot has now been BLOCKED on my phone number so I thought I’d get a newer phone. I purchased a Pixel 6. However hotspot is still being blocked on my phone. I called customer support only to have them say that they won’t support any Pixel hotspotting. But just for a second, lets look at the “Mobile Hotspot Eligible Phones”: for Android, in total there are just a FEW that are 5g. And at that note they are ALL lower end phones. Less than 10 phones in total. That really is a huge disappointment.So BYOD really doesn’t apply to this company and customer service is out the window when you hand select what specific devices you do want to support. In the end, it’s just lies that will loose you customers.
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!
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 ?
Two of my family members have Cricket service, and just recently they both got their service cut off due to that 3G shut down. They both have fairly new smartphones, and both of the phones support 4G network. What do they need to do to enable the service again? Their phones were not purchased at Cricket. Are they going to have to purchase new phones?
I have had this Moto G Stylus 5G 2021 for over a year now, fully paid off at time of purchase, and decided to unlock the device (even though I am not planning to switch carriers at this time). I tried to do it online on the website, and it prompted me that I had to do it through the MyCricket application. I tried, and got "Received HTTP 400 with reason: " error. Tried doing it through Wi-Fi, same thing. Tried clearing cache and data on the MyCricket app, and still no dice. The app is also up to date. Can anyone assist me in what to do further? Thank you in advance. Edit: solved through rebooting device. Device is unlocked now.

I have been a customer since April 2021; but on Sunday night my worst nightmare came to fruition. I use apps like Doordash to earn a living; and Sunday night while on a delivery the app crashed.In a panic, I force stopped the app then restarted my phone. However, I was unable to remember a pattern I had created the day before to unlock my phone; due to concerns about Android devices being vulnerable to data breaches, I decided to create an additional level of security Because Cricket was unable to help me, I had to contact LG in order to do a hard reset. Again I did this out of desperation without realizing that my data would be lost. Once this was completed, I have been having problems getting back in because I forgot my Google password. I understand that this is out of Cricket’s hands, but I visited the store to see if they had a way to work around this. Unfortunately, the in-store representative was very condescending, claiming that I should have never performed a hard reset. Becau
How in the world is someone on disability supposed to upgrade 4 phones to 5g phones? They cost way to much and to top it off just because we are customers we have to pay more than new customers do. So because some of us have been with cricket for over 10 years which with any other company would be a loyalty customer and would get extra benefits, we, on the other hand get screwed and will lose our plans and phones n probably numbers also because not everyone can afford new 5g phones. 4 of them at once anyway. Not with your prices for loyal customers! Plz explain how I'm supposed to upgrade 4 phones to 5g by next month??
We recently received a new Google Pixel 6. We bought the unlocked version that is supposed to work on all carriers. Switched the sim over and the phone wouldn’t work, furthermore the number showed up as suspended on myCricket.We switched it back into the original phone and after a while the suspension was lifted. The Cricket website lists the Pixel 6 as supported, however when we plug the imei number it says the device is not supported.Anyone have an idea what is happening? Any suggestions?Thanks!
Why is it that all the phones on the IMEI whitelist are only sold by ATT/Cricket? https://www.cricketwireless.com/support/great-big-network/byod-compatibility.htmlCricket/ATT are forcing people to buy their phones to use volte.For example, I am using bv9600 pro unlocked & rooted. i can switch 4g bands to match their system and make custom apn to match making my phone fully compatible. However because my IMEI isn’t on the whitelist im blocked from the voLTE. Here is some of the phones info:as you can see my phone is trying to use voLTE service but because of the IMEI whitelist it gets blocked from registering IMS on the service.The real issue isn’t the phones, its Cricket/ATT forcing people to buy their phones. When in some cases isn’t the issue. My phone works with all other carrier voLTE just not Cricket/ATT because of this IMEI whitelist and is fully capable of connecting to the service otherwise.And to prove I can change whatever is nessisary on my phone including 4g bands: her
To whom it may concern I am going to address a serious issue with the lies in which your company is doing. And Furthermore I do accept you too address this issue, as I am a cricket customer and have been for several years now and Furthermore I am more than upset by the blantly scamming people in general saying that the phone is a 28.8 megapixel camera! Sorry to say that when you add each individual camera and you divide its software into four cameras at 7.2 megapixels you don't have a camera that produces 28.8 megapixels you actually have a camera that is just as bad as if you were to have purchased a regular phone with one camera such as a 3G smartphone seriously lying to your consumers about their software in there useless phone that is complete junk is seriously wrong infact it's illegal to do anything like that! I hope you should know that I am a federal judge in the state of California and I would love to speak to someone about this situation I'm going through I have a Moto g powe
BEWARE- BEWARE-BEWARE-I love Cricket- left once and came back. I pay for 7 (SEVEN) lines!! I am very frustrated right now, I have never turned anyone into the BBB but I am thinking on this.My phone broke, placed my SIMS in another phone. My phoneline was suspend for “not being 5G”. Okay, go to local store- “we are waiving upgrade fee”, okay. We leave the store. My son gets a call from same store stating that my account is eligible for a free phone upgrade, come back and pick out the phone, will only need to pay taxes.Myself and my son go to the store, my son (who had removed his SIMS card the day before) picks out and obtains his 5g phone.I pick out phones for the other 2 lines that need upgraded. They are not ringing up as free, so I choose the other one. They have to order them, okay. Still no phone service. They will call “ tomorrow or next day, we will call you when they come in”.Four days later, I call to check. Oh yeah, they are here, they came in yesterday, sorry nobody called
unihertz jelly pro not listed as compatible with 5G--will be changing service if cricket doesn't quit the cash grab
Keep getting texts/interrupted calls that my phone doesn’t support 5G/4G LTE. It clearly does (as multiple other services have confirmed). Since Cricket’s whitelist is nothing more than a cash-grab attempt to force customers to buy phones they don’t need, will be switching services unless tech support actually starts acting like tech support and adding ALL phones that qualify to their whitelist rather than lying about a phone’s capabilities.
