Your destination is not supported - texting error?
For the past 3 days, when I use Google Assistant to verbally create a text message, I get the error:"Cricket here. We are sorry but your text message failed. Your destination is not supported from your current location." This happens while I am driving to or from work (and I have never had this problem in the past 18 months of driving to work). It happens at home. It happens when texting family members. I have a Samsung S9. I am using Google's Messages. According to the Play Store, I have the most current version.Any idea what is going on?
When I get a voicemail , sometimes it will say the voicemail is from a friend but when I click on the VM to hear it , it will be from the doctors office, not the person it is showing that suposably left the message. It does this a lot so I'm not sure what's going on and it does this a lot. Can someone tell me how to fix this issue? My phone is a lg stylo 4.
How to extend ring tome time
I just recently bought a new phone from Cricket but notice that the ring time on this phone is less than on my previous phone which was on a different carrier. I looked up online how to increase ring tone time but when I tried it on my phone it said that call forwarding on my phone is disabled. Apparently in order to increase ring tone time you have to dial call forwarding which involves dialing **61* and some other numbers. But I am unable to do that on this phone,. So I was wondering how I may extend the ring tone time on my phone as most of the time when it rings it hangs up before I am able to get to it.
Closing of 3g network and HD voice requirements for 2022
Good Morning, I have an Alcatel Verso. I barely get 4g speeds, it says its LTE, yet it is always painfully slow. I understand its a cheap budget phone, but that doesn’t mean I’m suppose to get 3g speeds. Along with that I’ve dug into reviews, along with other websites and found that it does not support HD Voice. Will I get a discount for upgrading, not just the $100 off. Im going to be frank, I see other carriers that offer better deals for people who trade up and stay on their service. I’ve been a AT&T customer for 6 years, 5 of that with Cricket, which I wasn’t able to get a deal because I was switching from the parent company.
I bought a Pixel 4a one month ago.
My phone broke and figured I'd buy a cheap phone until I get the next flagship that appeals to me. I settled on the Pixel 4a. Although I had some reservations from reviews:Some said slow (MKB)Some said the video was bad and the audio wasn't greatJust one cameraIt's smallSo the results?When I first got it one thing stood out: This phone is slippery as #*! I needed to get a case right away as a drop was coming.The speed? It's very fast compared to older phones. I think tech reviewers are used to comparing top line products and not realizing users upgrade from older phones. The speed on this phone is great.Fingerprint censor is great and super responsiveAudio is loud when listening to music, which surprised me. Many said it was weak. But the sound from recordings is pretty bad. I often record audio (guitar/songs) and it's very tinny...so that's a bummer.The battery is very good! I am pleasantly surprised. I always get an all day use with room to spare.The size is small, but as I said, it
IMEI shows blank name at Asurian so claim has been denied 7 times
Just to get this out of the way. EVERY single staff member at Cricket and Asurion has been very nice, professional. Unfortunately, they all think they have solved the issue by the time we conclude our conversation. Which is not the case in my situation.CLAIM: My device is not eligible for a screen repair, so it has to be replaced for a $40 deductible even with $8 a month for the protection. So I need to replace my now nearly dysfunctional LG Fortune 3 because the screen is shattered due to a naked phone (I was in the process of putting on a complete device protector) accidental hit caused it to sail across the room, bounce end over end over end on a ceramic tiled floor.Filed many claims since May 6th: I’ve applied online, over the phone and in person for a claim. I have been using the LG Fortune 3 Android 10 (I’ll refer to it as F3A10) since July 22, 2020 when my roommate upgraded me (I’m a second line on his account) through Cricket from an LG Fortune Android 6.1 (I’ll refer to it as
Before deciding on your current phone, which others were on your shortlist?
The Oneplus 9 announcements reminded me that I seriously considered getting the OP7Pro, along with Galaxy Note 9, Xiaomi Mi 9T, and Nubia Z20. My search criteria on gsmarena was "notchless OLED".Price, updates, and local warranty were the crucial factors why the other phones ultimately didn't get the rose. The Mi 9T woulda been the one if they officially sold them in Canada, though I think about "What coulda been" with the Note 9 the most.Which phones were your final candidates, and how did you decide which ones didn't make the cut?
Turbo2 mobile hotspot and icloud email issue
I was having issues connecting to my icloud email while using Outlook. Off my 5 email accounts, 4 worked, but the icloud on did not when I was using the mobile hot spot. After speaking with customer service for quite a while, there was still no solution. However, long story short, after fumbling around, I did end up solving the problem. I logged onto the device user interface online (hotspot.webui) and under the security option, clicked to allow email (Initially, only http and https were clicked to allow). That seemed to do the trick.
Xianomi Mi A3
I have read that these phones support 4G+ and 4G itself, and when I put in my EMEI to check if I can use these phones on the Cricket wireless network, it had stated that 3G is no longer supported. If it supposedly can use 4G and beyond, how come it isn’t compatible, or is there something I am missing?
Can't reset voicemail passcode
I have 4 lines and I need to reset the voicemail passcode for one of them. When I go to account settings and click the reset passcode link for that phone number, the text is sent to one of the other lines on my account (always the same one). Does anyone know how to fix this?
Cricket Ovation is a waste of money
I had the Nokia C1 last year and I disliked it, so not even 3 weeks ago I "upgraded" to the Cricket Ovation, and I effing HATE it! The battery will not charge. It might go up 2-3% after being on charge for an hour, but I'll look again 10 minutes later-- still on charge-- and it's dropped at least 10%!!! It was finally up to 80% about 12 hours ago... It's currently in 57%, and yet again it's been in charge this whole time! And let's talk about how it starts lagging then freezes up completely! Most of my memory is still free. I don't run apps in the background. There is no reason for it to do this every time I turn around! If runs redonkulously slow. I find it funny that it has 4 stars on the website, but everytime I tried to leave a review, the page suddenly disappeared. Wtf is that about?!The only good thing about this phone is the screen size.
icon 2 drops everything
I am on my second icon 2 phone after replacing the original under the warranty. The original dropped my call with roadside service 5 times while stranded on the side of the road with my child. This was the biggest of many issues and unacceptable.I was hopeful it was just that one....it is not. Terrible phone. Drops calls. Doesn't send texts. Texts not received. Apps shut off. And on and on.Funny that you can no longer leave a review on cricket for this model, and every response from them is that there is a one year warranty. Your warranty is useless when it is the model that is the problem. You need to stop selling this junk phone cricket!
