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.
I own a factory unlocked LG G8X (LM-G850QM) running Android 11, Software version G850QM30a, Android security patch August 1, 2021. Checking for updates says I am running the latest software version for current OS. Using the IMEI compatibility checker on Cricket’s website tells me my device is compatible. I returned to Cricket on February 25th after having tried Mint Mobile. (I only got 1 bar of reception with Mint). So after signing back up with Cricket on the 25th my service worked great for two weeks. Then starting on March 10th all incoming calls started going directly to voicemail. Any outgoing call I tried to make immediately gave me a “Call Ended” message. I contacted Cricket support and was told I needed to enable the HD Voice option on my phone. No such setting exists. (I’m with Verizon now and that setting exists. It just disappears when the Cricket SIM is inserted.) Using the *#*#4636#*#* menu I can see that VoLTE is not being provisioned. I was then told by Cricket support t
I have an unlocked LG G8X Dual Screen (LM-G850QM) that is now unable to make or receive calls. Any call I try to make immediately gets the “Call Ended” message. Any calls to my phone go directly to voicemail. Anyone have any idea on whats going on? According to the compatibility checker, my phone is compatible and will still work after the 3G shutdown. It’s been working fine until today.
Two of my family members have Cricket service, and just recently they both got their service cut off due to that 3G shut down. They both have fairly new smartphones, and both of the phones support 4G network. What do they need to do to enable the service again? Their phones were not purchased at Cricket. Are they going to have to purchase new phones?
Hello! I have a new Alcatel SmartFlip phone on a different carrier. Thought I would take a shot with this question in this forum. I was surprised that I don’t seem to have the ability to send any emojis in texts - but I can receive them. I found an app in the Kai Store (OS is KaiOS 2.5.2) that I could download some to my phone as pictures in my gallery, so I can attach them to texts, but I get charged for the text as a “multi-media” msg (twice as much as regular text) by my carrier - I have a pre-paid monthly plan. When I receive texts with emoji in them, it’s only the regular text rate that I get charged, not the multi-media rate. So my phone reads them as regular parts of texts when I receive them, but I can’t send them unless they are attachments at twice the price. Seems odd to me. Hard to believe I don’t have the ability built in to send any emoji at all. Don’t suppose anybody knows if this phone can somehow magically be able to send emoji as part of normal texting?
Why is it that all the phones on the IMEI whitelist are only sold by ATT/Cricket? https://www.cricketwireless.com/support/great-big-network/byod-compatibility.htmlCricket/ATT are forcing people to buy their phones to use volte.For example, I am using bv9600 pro unlocked & rooted. i can switch 4g bands to match their system and make custom apn to match making my phone fully compatible. However because my IMEI isn’t on the whitelist im blocked from the voLTE. Here is some of the phones info:as you can see my phone is trying to use voLTE service but because of the IMEI whitelist it gets blocked from registering IMS on the service.The real issue isn’t the phones, its Cricket/ATT forcing people to buy their phones. When in some cases isn’t the issue. My phone works with all other carrier voLTE just not Cricket/ATT because of this IMEI whitelist and is fully capable of connecting to the service otherwise.And to prove I can change whatever is nessisary on my phone including 4g bands: her
