Today I became aware that I am no longer able to send/receive calls on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 here at home. However if I drive to the grocery store, I am able to make/receive calls just fine. This has sent me on a path today to investigate this issue and to determine what exactly is going on.Here at home we have 6 phones that are all on Cricket Wireless. Two of the phones, a Cricket S10 and S9, are working perfectly and are able to make/receive phone calls with no problems. However all of our BYOD phones (2 A50's, Note 8 and an S9+) are all unable to make/receive calls here at home.I've done all the normal steps such as rebooting and checking settings, and even went so far as to purchase a new SIM card for the Note 8, but it all came back to the same results. After spending hours on a chat with a support person, swapping SIM cards around between phones and stuff, we came up with the following conclusion:Phones that are not sold or supported by Cricket wi
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.
Here's the deal, last year I moved and switched to Cricket. The phone tech at the store set my phone up, a LG G5 formally T-mobile. After I left the store I realized I could not access the internet. I had a good signal and 4g insignia but if I went into my browser and tried a search it would time out or say no connection.Now here is what is weird, if I type in a specific website anything starting with WWW. it will go straight to the website no problem, but then it hangs if I try and navigate any website it will not. Again it will time out or say no connection. Now it is getting internet as I can use messenger, and email. Plus like I said if I type the website page directly it goes. Apps like whatapp still works but with a long delay, ill send a message and it will go but takes a few minutes.Now i can switch the hotspot on and open my laptop and connect to my phone and use its data and the laptop internet through the phone also works perfectly so again the phone is receiving internet ju
Is anyone having a problem where screenshots sent over Cricket MMS are arriving blank/corrupted? My wife and I are having no problem sending/viewing these over RCS messaging, but if we switch to MMS mode, or are sending to someone not on RCS, the image doesn't go through intact - it depends on the receiving phone what it ends up looking like, but usually either a blank image of the appropriate size, or an error placeholder. We did a little diagnosis, and it seems the image is arriving, but arriving corrupted. We're not having problems sending other images, like photos, at all.(Apologies for not being more specific, but I already posted this once with more detail, and the forum marked it as spam. If this gets through, I can show some images of what the corruption looks like.)
Okay so my phone's been fine up until this last software update, and the time change. Now in order to get my phone to display the correct time I have to restart my phone multiple times a day because it'll randomly go back an hour and I never know when it happens. And in my clock app it'll automatically add a home option under the time that says +1 hour. It's really messing up my alarms and things I have in my calendar. How can I fix it please?
I’m not a customer yet. Can I get a sim card from cricketWireless and purchase onlythe simply data plan? I just want to use data co’z I don’t want to give up on my calland text plan from my current carrier. Also, can I use the sim card (with simply data plan) on my unlocked smartphone?
I have a Cricket Dream 5G that I had to purchase last November. I needed more memory so I installed a new Gigastone Micro SD Card 32GB. It is a UHS-U1 A1 Class 10, up to 90MB/s card - whatever that means. The SD Card was never used in any other device. I formatted the card in the phone and set it for only storage in the phone. I did not use the option to use the SD Card in both the phone and a computer.Within days, I started to get errors. The phone would randomly reboot. When the phone completed the reboot process, there would always be a message that the SD Card was missing or that the SD Card was corrupted.I reseated that card multiple times. I reformatted that card multiple times. The phone continued to randomly reboot.I took out that SD Card and put in a second SD Card. The second card was the same specifications as the first. It was also new and had never been used in any other device. Once again, I formatted the SD Card in the phone and set it for only storage in the phone.Once
I have a Moto G6 that I had to upgrade in January because Cricket said it would not be compatible after February. No big deal because they gave me a free Moto Stylus. Today another phone I have that I use for work bit the dust. Needing another phone, I took the sim card out and put it in the Moto G6. Everything seems to work fine. The phone is lte and when making a voice call there is an hd beside the timer so I assume hd voice is working. Is there any reason I shouldn't keep using this phone?
(I have a question I promise I just thought I needed to put this)I switched from Metro PCS to Cricket because Metros service was an ass sometimes (only sometimes, maybe once or twice a month we would have internet issues) and some family members suggested them and said they were awesome, service plans etc and so I believed them because said family members have had Cricket for over 12 yrs. Huge mistake! We all miss our Metro So this is what's going on:So Feb 2022 I switched and placed an order for 4 of the Cricket Dream phone's and the best plans for my family and I because there was some good reviews plus family suggestions. Although I got an excellent deal on them and the plans and was very satisfied I only had to pay $130 for everything, set up was easy and fast we had no problems in any of the set up process which to me was great!. Now it's been only a month and few days and omg these phones are terrible!!! The service is terrible the internet never works!! HBO max does not work f
My girlfriend recently upgraded her phone to the dream 5g and it has been working great for the last month plus, now couple days ago all of a sudden her data won't connect. We have restarted the phone, tuned data off and on, reset all the data settings, called customer support and ran through thier troubleshooting steps and the best we can get is for it to work for a couple minutes and go right back to nothing, on the $60 max unlimited plan and just started our billing cycle. Customer support said take it in to a store, when we called the local store only thing they could do is swap the Sim card which we plan on doing my next day off, im thinking this may be a shot in the dark but is this an issue anyone else has had? And if so how was it fixed. My Samsung A52 5g works just fine right next to it, same plan as hers. Trying to avoid a full on hard reset of th3 phone..
For the past couple of months, I have been receiving text messages from various email addresses, sending links to porn sites. I can't figure out how to block these. I'd like to just block all messages from emails, since they keep changing the email address, and no one I know texts from email. Any solutions?Thanks!
I have a OnePlus 7pro phone I purchased from 2019, that's less than 2yrs ago. I am pretty sure its technology and everything is more than capable of keep working with any modern upgrade of phone service. But I've received a text from cricket saying that it's not going to be the case and I'd need to buy a new phone?? I also have prepaid the service for the next year or so. So what if I don't want to spend $1k on a new phone and decide that I want to change to a different service provider? Would my prepaid amount be refunded?? Thank you
I got a text saying I need to upgrade my phone as it's not compatible with the 5G network anymore. When I called to upgrade it, the rep said it's already been upgraded and gave me a tracking number. But I didn't do the upgrade! When I checked the tracking info, it was delivered to a different state!I tried opening a ticket about fraud but after an hour of back and forth, the rep was just trying to make me buy a new phone and finally they just gave me a link to a form that I need to fill out and send via registered mail to them. Why can't they simply open a ticket for me or Cricket have an online form for it?I may have to switch to a different provider tomorrow as Cricket won’t even activate my old phone again until this is resolved.
