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!
Is there a way to locate your other device that you have on your plan? Without having the other phones passwords for codes is there a way to track my other phone on my plan? Long story short it's my teenage daughter who has it and she likes to sneak out so I'm trying to find out where she's going any help would be great
For the past 3 days, when I use Google Assistant to verbally create a text message, I get the error:"Cricket here. We are sorry but your text message failed. Your destination is not supported from your current location." This happens while I am driving to or from work (and I have never had this problem in the past 18 months of driving to work). It happens at home. It happens when texting family members. I have a Samsung S9. I am using Google's Messages. According to the Play Store, I have the most current version.Any idea what is going on?
Hello.. I am an existing customer now for years using cricket wireless. I just saw a new "Cricket Moto G6" phone on sale at Walmart.Question : Can I just buy this phone from Walmart and take my existing Cricket Sim card from my current Alcatel Idol 3 phone and activate the new Cricket Moto G6 phone ? Or do I need another Sim card from Cricket or Walmart? Would be nice to avoid the $25 fee from cricket. Also the fact the new Walmart phone says "Cricket Moto G6" would that cause a problem? Thank you so much for your help.
I need to enter my phone number on my Blizzard account for an added layer of protection. I have the usual contract, pay by the month and can receive texts and all that. However Blizzard tells me that there is a code on my phone put on by Cricket which will not allow my phone to be used on their site. What is this code they are talking about? And can it be taken off? This is my only phone and I really don't want to switch to another plan at the moment.On Blizzard's forum there are many people having the same problem as I am using their Cricket plan phones on their website. Perhaps Cricket can contact Blizzard and figure this out?
We recently received a new Google Pixel 6. We bought the unlocked version that is supposed to work on all carriers. Switched the sim over and the phone wouldn’t work, furthermore the number showed up as suspended on myCricket.We switched it back into the original phone and after a while the suspension was lifted. The Cricket website lists the Pixel 6 as supported, however when we plug the imei number it says the device is not supported.Anyone have an idea what is happening? Any suggestions?Thanks!
After many happy years using cricket as 1 of my 2 Sims in many international phones that operate on the correct LTE bands and with all the latest features, cricket suspends my line if I use a completely compatible device that's not on their very limited list. I figure there must be more people experiencing a similar issue recently as they suspend lines for "incompatible" phones, so I thought is post this.
I currently have a LG Escape 3 and up until recently I liked the Visual Voicemail app that was on the phone. However, it appears to have been updated as recently as two days ago and now it no longer works.When I get voicemails, they no longer are accessible thru Visual Voicemail, and if I try to check the "Greeting" it just spins forever and if I go back to the Settings page I get this constant "Unavailable at this time" message at the bottom of the screen..I just wondered if it was an issue with the app, my phone, and if I'm going to need to factory reset it or not to get it to work again? Thanks.Bruce

Hi all! I have an unlocked OnePlus 5 with a Cricket SIM. It's not a new phone, but it works perfectly and is 4G LTE compatible. I got a text this morning from Cricket saying that 3G support will be ending in February 2022 (fine, cool) and that my device will no longer be supported (what?)I tried calling Cricket to ask why I'd be getting a text that doesn't seem relevant, but the guy palmed me off talking about “changes to the network” without actually explaining why shutting down 3G means a 4G phone would no longer be compatible. He insisted it's because it's unlocked, but then said any iPhone from 6S onward, unlocked or on Cricket, would work fine. Clear as mud, right?So I wanted to ask here if anyone can shed any light on what this actually means, or if it's a mistake on their end. If it isn't, I'll probably just switch network rather than pay for a new phone - Cricket isn't the only budget carrier anymore!
I have tried a long list of addresses (shown below) to try and send an email to my phone as a text message. None of these six addresses shown below work.What address (combined with my 10-digit phone number first) will email@example.com@firstname.lastname@example.org@email@example.com@mms.att.net
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 :(
I have a Samsung Z fold 2. I have not been able to call out or receive calls for 3 days now. I've had Samsung look at the phone and they say it is a carrier issue. I've put a friend's SIM card in my unlocked phone, and hers works in my phone. Cricket can't seem to give me answers. Anyone else??
My BYOD OnePlus 5T has NEVER been able to send or receive SMS with pictures, no matter how small (can't even send a 50kb JPG). When I try to send a text with a picture, 5-10 seconds after I click send ( >>) I get "Message not sent: service not activated on network"I've revised/added/deleted APN settings over and over based on the latest blog suggestions, confirmed that MMS will not work when I am connected to my Wifi or not, tried three or four different texting apps (Messages (default - blue icon) Messages (green icon, Textra, WhatsApp), on my 3rd Cricket-issued SIM, had Cricket retail technicians try to fix, etc. I am ready to switch to another provider. PLEASE, someone, HELP!
General Device Unlock RequirementsIf you have a Cricket phone, it may have been programmed with a lock that prevents it from operating with other compatible wireless networks. Cricket will provide the unlock code upon request, provided Cricket has the unlock code or can reasonably obtain it from the manufacturer, and you have met the following unlocking requirements: The device you want to unlock has been active for at least six (6) months of paid service.* The device is designed for use on and is locked to Cricket's network.The device has not been reported lost or stolen.The device is not associated with a fraudulent account.If you're an active Cricket customer and believe you meet the eligibility requirements listed above, sign in to My Account to unlock your phone. Some Android phones must be unlocked using the myCricket app. Non-Cricket customers, please call Customer Support at 1-800-CRICKET (1-800-274-2538). Recently I purchased a Used Cricket phone
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..
I have a cricket icon smartphone 16gb and I tried to update my phone software but it only let me updated on using WiFi when I have 4g lte unlimited plan for 100.00 a month with 3 other people and I been trying to figure out how to update my phone software by using my data instead of using wifi that I can't get here how do I update my phone software with no wifi
Less than 2 months ago I bought a new Nokia 3.1 Plus running Android Pie. So far I've been able to download 2 updates with no problems. Yesterday another one popped up and I haven't been able to download it. I keep getting this message "Previous DM session is still working. Please try again later." I searched online, didn't find much. I did find that DM stands for Device Management and supposedly means something running in the background. I turned off all of my backups. Still the same message. Has anyone ran into this problem before? Or anyone have a fix? Cricket CS was no help as usual and told me to contact the manufacturer, even though it does state Cricket Wireless software update.
How do you this ? I've tried google home and other apps but they say cast add on is not installed . There is youtube video of tmobile stylo 6 casting . I have a cricket nokia c2 and it casts wonderfully under connected devices . You dont even have to have it on same wifi to work ! Under connected devices on this it just has file sharing options. I got one 3rd party app to cast a url video thats it .
I have a 2019 Alcatel that I am trying not to loathe. I only use my phone for actual phone stuff, and to watch YouTube news programs. I also have the hotspot app so I can use my computer for actual computer stuff like research and email. I live where there is a signal (usually 3-5 bars) but NO WIFI. Which evidently is required for the automatic software updates I get. Constantly. They interrupt a news show, a text message I am in the middle of, etc. They are a constant banner on my screen when I turn it on. And I have zero access to public wifi. How do I turn off the Automatic Cricket Software Updates????? (yes, a little frustrated here) thanks :)
