Any idea how the IMEI look up thing works? Unlocked my phone about an hour ago with the mycricket app, looked up the IMEI on another providers on line tool to see if it was compatible with their network and it doesn’t recognize the IMEI number. Does it just take more time?
Hi,I got my Google Pixel 6a phone today, and was super excited to try it out, but after inserting my cricket wireless sim, I got an SMS saying this model is not supported by Cricket.I got on a call with customer service, and provided them with my IMEI number, but all they said is they do not support this model.Does anyone know if cricket will support Pixel 6a or how long does it usually take Cricket to support a new device? I need to decide if I should be returning my Pixel 6a :(
My son and I have been with Cricket for years. He recently moved and couldn’t get a signal with Cricket so he switched to another company. I had to get a new phone because they said mine wouldn’t work when they went to 4G. I recently became eligible for free phone service as I lost hours at my job. I can’t afford another new phone and Cricket won’t unlock mine so my brand new phone is useless. I am totally disgusted with this company. The person I spoke with was extremely rude and non-caring.
I got the cricket 5g phone as an upgrade and it's been shutting down the and restarting since I got it home. The store won't do an exchange due to their employee breaking the SIM card tray when I was at the store on the phone they tried to give me 1st and counted that phone as an exchange. I am so upset over this so called upgrade especially after reading all the reviews on line. This phone should not even be on the shelves in the stores or considered as an upgrade. Its only obvious after seeing how many phones have had issues.
I am on the 3rd Dream 5g due to issues with the phone which resulted in warranty replacement. Don't think for a moment that means the company is taking care of my phone issues. The third phone is here, and has the same problems minus strange functioning "on its own" but then, it's early yet. The biggest problem is that the phone will not maintain a data signal. The result is that you cannot rely on the phone to connect to the internet when you need it. Further, while it does usually connect for regular surfing, playing my game (I have been unable to utilize my subscription) has, thus far, been impossible. I don't actually know how many movies I have watched half or three quarters of because of lost connection, and many days I have tried multiple times and at various times and just been unable to watch at all. All 3 phones have greyed out data buttons, I cannot toggle data off to save battery or any other reason. The store employees all have tried to no avail to figure out why, how to
My wife’s OnePlus 8T was upgraded recently to OxygenOS 12 and she lost carrier access. We tried everything we could find after Googling the issue, but nothing worked.I looked up the Access point Name settings and we noticed that it was set for ATT Nxtgenphone, even though Cricket was an option. Setting to Cricket didn’t help, until I noticed that the APN read “ndo”, not “Endo”. I fixed that spelling error. All the other settings for the Access point were correct.Within a few minutes, her cellular service started working again.Just throwing this out in case it helps someone else.
So I have had my phone (moto g stylus 5g (2021)) since January 5th, 2022 and it malfunctioned a week ago, end of June, early July (6/7 months), so I sent in my warrenty….and got a refurbished phone!! My NEW phone didn’t last a year and end up with a refurb phone. It sucks. It didn’t come with the correct charger, and it has been dropped during shipping. Box was smashed, and they hardly put in packaging material(s). headache all around. My question is, shouldn’t you get a NEW phone if your phone is not even a year old? My phone wasn’t scratched, kept it in great shape. The phone kept freezing and going off for an hour before i was able to turn it on again. Also it got super hot, to the point i had to turn it off for a whole day. I’m highly disappointed by Cricket Wireless, because of the refurb phone for a phone that was BRAND NEW...not even a year old.
So I got the dream 5g phone for free moving over from boost. I had a crappy wiko ride 3 that was only capable of 4g... Whatever 5g is not noticeably faster in the US from what I have read. Anyways, this is not fast at all. Sometimes it's slower than dial-up. And on the dream 5g there is no way to force 4g. So even if the phone has found good strong 4g, it will try to stay on an inferior 5g signal. Boost was cheaper and only had a 35 gig cap. After that it just got a little slow. Not as slow as this. I'm already at 22Gb because that's not a lot of data. And I have the extra plan. For a no holds bar extra plan, in a major city, this is sad. Oftentimes not really getting any service. And before anyone says try to warranty the phone, I did. This is the 2nd one. And my girlfriend also has the same phone, not over the 22Gb cap, and often slower than me. This sucks Cricket. I thought Boost was a lame cell phone company, but you have a lot to figure out it seems.
I have a few questions.. in my phone in the system information and phone information it says my phone my phone's model is a u314-aa and I'm not sure what that is I have not been able to look up any help for my phone because this is not even exist when I do it on a search through you guys and I got this from from a cricket provider so I'm really confused on that. Another thing is when I did a factory reset to try to fix my phone because every time a text message or anything would come in two of them would come in and now with just a factory reset and the download of my contacts your cricket customer service number comes up about 30 times on my contacts and AT&t has all their customer service information on the contacts list as well I'm just concerned that something is wrong with the system on my phone my my buttons aren't configured right when I push one thing it pushes another and I only have this phone 2 weeks and my phone is running slower after the factory reset I haven't even d
So I just bought a phone 2 1/2 weeks ago. I walked into the store wanting 2 things. 1.) A phone with a stylus 2.) A phone with NFC. The kid who was no more than probably 20 years old told me that he had the Motorola Moto G Stylus 5G (2022). I agreed that I wanted it so he went in the back to get it and when he came back a few minutes later to tell me he did not have it but had the Motorola Moto G Stylus 5G. I asked numerous times during the process of getting the phone to make sure they are both the same phones just one was released earlier according to the kid both phones have the 2 things I was looking for. I felt reassured and went on with the purchase after numerous times of him telling me this. Well guess what? My phone has a stylus but no NFC. I'm so busy running my business that it has taken me this long to set up my phone to see no NFC. Am I stuck with a phone I don't want since it's past the 7-Day return period os is there another way to get the phone I want

Unable to Make or Receive phone calls since 06/08/22. Only getting Internet & text messages all this time.I have 4G LTE phone that Cricket confirms is compatible on the IME code. Customer service keeps saying Service issues in Los Angeles & it is a known issue with phones that have 3g & 4G & 5G capability. Reason is still unknown but Cricket “is working on it”. Visited the store, sales people said they know about the issue but no one has any answers or knows when/if it will be corrected.???? Absolutely NO information or acknowledgement on Cricket website. People need to understand what is happening , why is this such a secret? Whit is the issue & do we have an estimation at a minimum????
I got the free Dream 5G yesterday. It's fast, looks sharp, but after using it for a day I've noticed it will randomly restart itself. I cannot figure it out. I have downloaded all kinds of memory and system stability testing programs to try and find corrupt ram. But they all check out. Is Android system WebView the culprit again?? It will be fine for hours and hours. Then I'll be laying down and hear it just randomly restart and check the system uptime, sure enough...yeah crashed. It has the latest update. I don't wanna return the phone, but I'm about to because it's displaying symptoms of corrupt ram or graphics corruption. I'm starting to see why they're giving them away for free. I reset the phone to see if I could make it stable with just 1 Google account. Or maybe the transfer from the previous device didn't go smooth. So I reset it. *The only clue I have is some kind of omapc message after the reboot." It's a nice phone, but if it doesn't sort it out or someone can
Title says all, for reasons I'm not comfortable disclosing, I cant leave the area I'm in, nor receive mail. I'm very very worried about trying to get a phone number set up ASAP. It's a cricket sim and a cricket phone, and it was on my mom's account at one point. She has since turned it off and won't accept money sent by me to have it turned back on.
I have a Samsung smartphone that has a “do not disturb” or “do not ring” unless it’s a person in my address book or in my favorites. Great feature to avoid scammers. My mother has a flip phone and gets a lot of unwanted phone calls from scammers. Is there a flip phone that will only ring if the caller is in the phone’s address book?
Recently I had to buy another phone. I used the sim card from my old phone, and it worked great for like a week or two. Now I don’t receive text messages from one person who is also on the same line as me. I can receive phone calls from her and group texts, but not one on one texts. I tried restarting my phone, doing a factory reset, removed the sim card and replaced it, cleared the SMS cache, deleting the contact and adding it again, but nothing works. I also checked to see if her number was blocked and it wasn’t. Any other suggestions that I haven’t tried?
New Moto G Stylus 5g (2022) will not connect my mobile hotspot to brand new Vizio tv or laptop. Upgraded my phone from 3g and now it will not connect at all. My 3g phone connected flawlessly. I don't understand why this new upgraded phone will not. Made sure of the coverage area while in store. Have tried absolutely everything. System is up to date. It's not my devices. I do live in a rural area, I get 1-2 bars, I can get online, play online games etc etc, call, text altho reception is slow & I do get dropped calls at times, I've always been able to use hotspot on my tv to watch movies, videos & play games. Now my hotspot will not connect at all to my laptop, it keeps saying bad password even though it's correct. Connects for about 1 second to tv & then nothing. DHCP is enabled. Have changed AP bands, 2.4GHz, 5.0GHz which is preferred, tried with and without a password. I will be so happy & appreciative with ANY suggestions & ecstatic if my issue is resolved! 🤸Tha
I was locked out of my phone while trying to set it up. Not sure what I hit but now I need a PUK unlock code (what the PUK is that) and pin #. It says the unlock code is 8 digits and the pin # is 4 digits. The message running across the screen also says I have to contact customer service but you’re closed… I have the plastic card the SIM came in but none of the numbers add up to the 12 needed. Can anyone help me decipher the strings of numbers on the plastic SIM punch out card or must I wait until the CRICKETS wake up!!!Thank you in advance for your help..
