Since March 11th Cricket/AT&T have had a tower or multiple tower damages of some sort. But only today did I find out that much. Phone calls in or out were not possible. WiFi and texting were and are fine. Ping is fine. Unable to talk to anyone online. The local Cricket store I visited tried to convince me my phone was to blame. I bought an unlocked brand new phone on Amazon after being told the Windows phone I had been using for years had no trade in value even though the rep on the phone line said it would if I upgraded to a Motorola. Anyway after a while the clerk in the store sold me a sim card for $10.81. it worked for an hour. I discovered after coming here that Crickes Facebook page could help. It worked. Sort of. At least I found out it was a company technical issue with a tower or many that was at play. Now why for freaking out load could Crickets minion clerk not reveal that? I was after all the only other person in the store. As you can see, there are multiple service opportunities or lack of that could have been put to good use. Food for thought ya'll. Still not fixed, my phone that is. Still waiting, still hemoraging money. Lost revenue, lost chance to get over $300 in reembursements from my health insurance and of course the $10.81 for a new sim card I didn't need. They didn't sell me that $149 Motorola. But they did get me for $10.81. That's tenacity ain't it?
