theScoop of crappy bloatware
I found a notification on my phone that "Apps Installed by Mobile Services theScoop." Why? And it can't be uninstalled only disabled. So in addition to the pre-installed bloatware, cricket adds to it after service is initiated? I don't want this crAPP on my phone? How do I prevent future unauthorized downloads by cricket or anyone else?
Voicemail problems for Lg Stylo 6
I have tried setting up my voicemail, when I open it states this person does not have a voicemail set up. When I go to settings my voicemail number is mine own phone number. But the voicemail states that the mailbox is invalid. I would need the systems manager mailbox number.
Pixel 5a Hotspot Trouble
When I try to enable my hotspot, I receive the error; "An eligible data plan is required to use personal mobile hotspot. Please visit att.com/personalhotspot or myAT&T to change your plan. You also may call AT&T at 611 for assistance." How do I get it to work? My phone is unlocked and compatible. I'm also on the "Unlimited More" plan.
Stylo 5 is not unlocking and nobody will help
My son is a Cricket customer, and when my old phone died he gave me his previous Cricket phone, an LG Stylo 5, so I could use it with my carrier. It meets all the unlock conditions, so I followed Cricket's instructions to unlock it...about 45 times. It has to be unlocked thru the MyCricket app, and every time I do the procedure, it says Unlock Successful, please restart your phone, and boom it is locked to Cricket again. Customer service is no help, and keeps telling me to do what has already been tried,and although I have tried to get transferred or referred to tech support or customer service manager, I have been refused! I am at my breaking point on this, and as a senior citizen, this is just not fair! At a Cricket store, they removed my son's info/account from the phone so I would not have to keep asking him for his personal info, pin, password, etc. But that did not help either. I want to be able to call my kids or my doctor! So, tech support or customer service management, or any
Why Am I To Be Penalized for A Bad Decision
I switched to Spectrum from Cricket in December 2022, ostensibly to save money. Unfortunately I was plagged with bad phones. I purchased a Moto G Stylus in 2022. Spectrum said it wasn’t one of their acceptable phones, so I had to settle for an older type Moto G Pure (2021). After 2+ weeks of it not working out of town (in NC) and not having a working SIM card (that’s all on my record), I purchased a ‘NEW” moto Dream 5 G phone at a Raleigh NC Cricket store. It costs me a lot (though being a lower end. I needed a working cellphone for work that weekend)! When SIM card arrived from Cricket online I told Customer Service it was too big. I was told that I’d have to put in in through the back. I pushed did all that I could and couldn’t get the back off. Went to the Cricket store where we agreed the phone was marked not to try to remove the back. Store personnel pointed out the problem wasn’t the size of the SIM card - but that it was encased in a larger piece of cardboard. Phone is ruined. I

Cricket Dream 5G froze, I turned it off, it won't turn on
So I was using my Cricket Dream 5G cell phone, which has been working fine for almost a month (I just got this as a replacement for a dream I spilled water on), and while using it the screen froze and I couldn’t back out, go to home pae or even turn the screen off, so I shut the phone off by holding the power button for a few seconds. Now it won’t come back on. I’ve tried holding the power button for 30+ seconds and doing the same with the volume held down as well. It doesn’t even vibrate when it goes on the charger. It was at least at 37% when it died, was updated to date, wasn’t damaged at all and wasn’t even running hot. All I did was shut it down once and now it won’t come back on. Plz help because I really don’t want to file another claim.

My Debut Flip will not take charge or turn on
So, I got this phone about 10 months ago, and its been working alright since I have gotten it. I take it with me to highschool and back everyday, take it to work, then go home. Just yesterday however, it stopped working. I figured the battery had died, so I thought I had plugged it in and turned it back on. It turned on, but I didnt realize it wasnt charging. A few moments later, it died again. Now, it wont take charge, and it wont turn on. Ive taken out the battery and put it back in, Ive used 2 different cords on outlets I know work, and I left the phone charging for three hours, no response. Anyone know a fix, or am I just screwed?
STOP SMS messages on Turbo Hotspot
I’m getting SMS messages on my Turbo Hotspot 2. How can I send a STOP command to the senders?I assume these messages were subscribed to by the previous person who has my number.I was unsuccessful finding any help so far including Cricket agents who can’t seem to understand the issue.
Earbud Play at Low Level
The new earbuds sounded good connected to my 5G. A short time later the volume decreased a lot. My media volume had not changed. Other earbuds work fine, and my new earbuds work fine on another fine. I can not find a setting to control Bluetooth volume. I noticed the phone is Bluetooth 5.1, the earbuds are 5.3. Should they be compatible? Any other advice or help with this is appreciated.
