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

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
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!
Unable to send or receive MMS
My BYOD OnePlus 5T has NEVER been able to send or receive SMS with pictures, no matter how small (can't even send a 50kb JPG). When I try to send a text with a picture, 5-10 seconds after I click send ( >>) I get "Message not sent: service not activated on network"I've revised/added/deleted APN settings over and over based on the latest blog suggestions, confirmed that MMS will not work when I am connected to my Wifi or not, tried three or four different texting apps (Messages (default - blue icon) Messages (green icon, Textra, WhatsApp), on my 3rd Cricket-issued SIM, had Cricket retail technicians try to fix, etc. I am ready to switch to another provider. PLEASE, someone, HELP!
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.

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!!
Phone Battery Drainage?
Hey Everyone, I'm just wondering about Phones in general.I heard that low signal will drain battery but would being in a area on Cricket Wireless that drops signal and regains it like several times a day drain the battery worse than having 1 bars of signal?Basically will the times I don't have signal drain the battery heavier than weak signal.
G7 Supra Wifi issues
We have a pair of G7 Supra phones. Pretty much everything works on 4G, but a bunch of apps cannot connect on Wifi. Examples: Yahoo Mail App, Disney+ App, Discord, Amazon... many.Turn off Wifi... works fine.Same apps work on Wifi on other devices (older Moto Turbo 2 and other devices since retired).Anyone else have a similar issue?Right now I have to keep old phones around to cast Disney+ to the Chromecast.
