So, 2+ months ago I posted about constantly getting a prompt from Cricket to upgrade to Android 13, and I wanted to block them from doing it automatically. My last phone would do it without my consent and I lost a lot of important files and information. I believe it went from Android 11 to Android S the last time, but there was something before also.The reply I received was to contact the phone manufacturer and that Cricket isn't the one doing it. Well, I guess they figured that was it. Not so.. because on the upgrade it clearly states that it is a CRICKET SOFTWARE UPDATE. I have to pay attention every time I use my phone I have to make sure I don't hit the wrong thing otherwise it's going to mess up my phone again. I can't get rid of it. I did figure out how to block auto updates in the hidden program but can't delete the prompt. I do not want to upgrade! I can't trust that information won't be lost no matter what it says, and all of my settings usually change. Also, I don't receive
So I was looking for a setting on my ZTE Maven 3 and I turned on Developer Mode (not by accident, purposely). I couldn't find the setting I was looking for on my phone so I turned Developer Mode off. After I did that my keyboard switched from the QWERTY keyboard to the ABCDEF keyboard. It's driving me crazy, because it's taking forever for me to text on my phone. What's the easiest way for me to get my keyboard back to the QWERTY keyboard settings? Thanks!
Whenever we are on the edges of a Cricket reception area, of our three phones our Cricket phone a Cricket ZTE Prelude + gets the best reception compared to our unlocked Nexus 6p or Moto G5 plus. They are all on Band 5, if that is any help.Are the Cricket phones made to work better on the Cricket/AT&T network?Is there some way to improve the reception of non-Cricket unlocked phones? (I find taking them out of their case helps)Thanks so much for any assistance!
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?
I have seen a post that cricket knew the my cricket app was not working on the Moto G7 and a LG phone. This was posted back in May of this year. Wondering were the fix for this is. What is taking so long. I need to unlock my phone for overseas use and got an unlock code but have to use the mycricket app to unlock. Now I have to wait 3-5 business days for someone from tech support to call me This is totally unacceptable. Why do company's sell a product that they know does not function 100%.
So a few days or so ago, I decided to delete some unused apps I had on my phone. I don't know what exactly I deleted but now the date and weather display widget on my home screen is different than when i originally acquired the phone. I've included two screenshots showing the new unwanted one (from October 11) and the old one I want back (that shows September 5 as the date).I also have another unwanted change I want reversed, involving notifications. Before all this happened, usually whenever I got notifications while my phone is in "sleep mode" (black screen, as though it were turned off, not being used) the screen would remain black but the screen would fade brighter and silently show the notification. However since this mishap, when I get notifications with the phone "sleeping", the screen would bright up showing the full display background with the notification. I do not want this. Is it possible for me to go back to getting the notifications with the black background again? Thanks
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.
mycricket is temporarily unavailable There was a problem trying to connect to the server. Please try again.This happened on my old phone Pixel 3a running Andriod 12 and now on my new phone Pixel 7a. I have cleared the cache and data, uninstalled and reinstalled. Wifi off and I do not get the message. I think it is a setting with my network wifi. Any suggestions?
I haven’t had my cricket icon 4 long but every time I log into an app it kicks me out before I can look at it for example snapchat kicks me out before I’m able to see who messaged please help I don’t want to have to get a new phone but I might have too if my phone keeps kicking me out of apps or google meet video chat app.
So I have an unlimited data plan and I have the LG stylo 5. Everything works fine when I'm connected to my home wifi, but the minute I try to open up a game like wizards unite or Pokémon go while I'm outside, they take ages to load and don't work properly. Does this happen to anyone else? Or does anyone know what I can do to fix it?
I am not under contract, and will simply go elsewhere. The microphone on my telephone died, it was 5 weeks old! I was in the middle of a conversation, and she started saying "hello? hello?" and hung up.I went to the dealer, and he explained he can only replace the instrument for the first week, but I am covered by warrantee for a year.I called 611, they took my information, but wanted me to send the phone back FIRST! Sorry, I need my phone! I bought a headset for $10, and gave my info to the warrantee department. A week later, NOTHING. NO LETTER, NO PHONE, like it never happened!I value my TIME. Expect me to be gone next month!Feel free to send comments to:Mitt_glick@yahoo.comIt is unlikely that I will return here.
I have never been so disappointed with my Cricket service I have been a loyal customer for over 8 years and referred other friends and family to not be able to get my tethering hotspot on my ZTE axon phone which Cricut does not offer for a purchase I still keep Cricket as my service I had to tethering once I purchase the phone and removed it to not being formed by customer service that once I remove the tethering because of my ZTE axon phone I would not be able to reinstate the tethering hotspot this is not acceptable for a loyal customer for over 8 years I'm sure I'm not the only one that's upset about not being able to get the hotspot or the tethering on other phones again this is not great customer service this needs to be brought to the attention of crickets president and I know that I am not the only one that will stop using and referring people to Cricket if this is not changed immediately.
