Phones & Devices
Hello everyone,I've been facing frequent network outages in my area, and it's causing disruptions to my work and communication. I rely on a stable network for important tasks, and these outages are becoming increasingly frustrating. I was wondering if anyone could provide me with information regarding any ongoing network maintenance or upgrades that might be happening in my area. Understanding the reasons behind these outages would greatly help me in finding a solution or alternative methods to ensure uninterrupted connectivity. Any insights or assistance in resolving this issue would be highly appreciated.Thank you in advance for your support!
I have a moto stylus 5g and a few days ago my phone just started dropping calls in the middle of conversation. Now I don't have Internet service. I can't call Cricket for help so I'm reaching out on my husband's phone. At this point do I need to factory reset...would rather not but I need my phone to start working again. I checked to see if there was an outage...none
I work in the Technology division for a school district. The district just rolled out Passpoint-WIFI in all of our buildings. They also moved our division-issued iPhones from Verizon to T-Mobile, and pushed down a policy that connects them to Passpoint. They seem to work fine.The issue I’m having is that I have a personal iPhone XR (iOS 17.1) on Cricket Wireless that works so-so on Passpoint. Specifically, the iPhone email app will not refresh and get updates. It just spins. I use Gmail as my email provider.Some other apps that I have installed that use Internet access, such as Grammarly also time out.I have Googled the crap out of this and have found nothing that helps.Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Greetings fellow cricket fans,I'm hoping some of you can help explain an issue I consistently face when trying to stream cricket matches online - the video quality is awful!Whether I'm using free streaming sites or even paid services like Willow and Hotstar, the video is almost always blurry, pixelated, stuttering, and just hard to watch. This makes it really difficult to follow the action and enjoy the games.My internet connection speeds are pretty good. I get over 50 Mbps download on Speedtest. So I don't think it's on my end.A few questions for the community:Are cricket streaming services just lower quality overall compared to other sports? Is there a setting I'm missing to bump up the video resolution? Are there any streaming sites you'd recommend that offer consistently high-def cricket streams? Any other tips to improve the streaming experience?I'm desperate to finally watch crisp, clear cricket matches live online. Really appreciate any advice you seasoned streamers can provide!
I have 4 lines on my plan. We all have the same phones. Both mine and my daughter's lines won't make or receive phone calls. We can text and use data. I have tried switching my sim card to another phone which is also on my plan that is working. That phone would not work with my sim card in it. I have tried driving to another spot closer into town still won't work. I tried turning my phone off and on that didn't work. I tried taking my sim card out that didn't work. I tried clearing the cache that didn't work. I tried to call can't make any calls. I tried to chat held on the chat for over 20 minutes. Then got disconnected. Now they are closed. They are not even open for technical support. This is ridiculous. My bill is paid up. I checked my software is up to date. Here I've been without phones for a day now. This is the biggest crock of#$it ever.
I have moto 5g stylus 2023. I try to use Google maps today and my gps would not move. I download WAZE app and the GPS just keeps moving. I try to play Pokemon go and I have tons of movement. It's like it can't pick up my phone. I reset wifi, Bluetooth. I reset my phone. Idk what's happening.
I placed an order for 2 iPhone 6s for my daughter and niece.... For some reason by me ordering after 2pm ET the order was placed the next day which was the 25th of February.... The 27th comes around and still no phones, I called to see what's the hold up, and was told it phones will be there tomorrow the 28th....That time comes and still no phones....So Saturday morning I called to find out that my phones was delayed at 5 in the morning..... Somebody from the office will notify me about my order.... Let hours pass on (Saturday) and decided to call back and get your phones have been cancelled, okay.... (So where's my refund).I was told I will have it in my bank no later than Wednesday which was the 4th of March....Checked my card nothing, even called the operated for my card and was told nothing was sent back from cricket.... Calls cricket back and explain to them (still on the 4th)that I haven't received my order or refund so what the hell is going on! Next thing I know is a ticket is
I am a consumer of cellular wireless but I am not an engineer or a regulatory quality expert, so my question is what are the health and safety risks to using cellular wireless? I recently found information online that explains in a graph format that cellular networks, wifi, microwave ovens are approximately 3 GHz in frequency and or wavelength of 10cm. Is this bad to the human body? I usually don't keep my cell phone on all day and only use it when needed.
I bought the flip 5 and was able to get it activated in store, (I bought it unlocked from amazon) but when I was finishing set up to make calls and stuff It didn't work. I was wondering if it's not compatible yet because it's new and if it will be available soon? What should I do in the meantime without getting rid of this phone or costing too much?
I had the Nokia C1 last year and I disliked it, so not even 3 weeks ago I "upgraded" to the Cricket Ovation, and I effing HATE it! The battery will not charge. It might go up 2-3% after being on charge for an hour, but I'll look again 10 minutes later-- still on charge-- and it's dropped at least 10%!!! It was finally up to 80% about 12 hours ago... It's currently in 57%, and yet again it's been in charge this whole time! And let's talk about how it starts lagging then freezes up completely! Most of my memory is still free. I don't run apps in the background. There is no reason for it to do this every time I turn around! If runs redonkulously slow. I find it funny that it has 4 stars on the website, but everytime I tried to leave a review, the page suddenly disappeared. Wtf is that about?!The only good thing about this phone is the screen size.
A couple days ago, I went to my camera roll and saw this small section where my iPhone had generated 2 edits to 2 pictures on my phone. 1 photo had the levels adjusted to it, and the other turned a live photo into a stable loop/gif. For some reason, that section is gone and I don't see any options within my photos to make similar edits.I hope this all made sense, can someone tell me how to get it again? I thought turning the live photo into a stable gif was super cool and would love to do it to some other photos.
Hello everyone! I'm experiencing some issues with WhatsApp on my Samsung S10+. Specifically, I'm having trouble searching for GIFs as the screen behaves strangely and the keyboard doesn't appear for me to type in my search. Additionally, when attempting to send attachments, I'm given the option to quickly send to recent or popular recipients, but tapping on them only loads all the other send options. Has anyone else encountered similar problems with WhatsApp on their Samsung S10+? If so, I would greatly appreciate any advice or solutions to resolve these issues. Thank you in advance for your assistance!
I called support because my phone is stuck on SOS (twice). Everything is up to date. Turned the phone off completely and on again and still having a problem. One of them told me there is an outage in my area (NYC). Another told me there is no outage and if I want to change my number. What is going on?
Доброго времени суток, прошу помощи в решении моей проблемы. Я купил себе айфон, в Украине, хотел бы отвязать его от вашего оператора, но связи с прежним владельцем аккаунта крикет нет. Телефон сейчас со мной я с него пишу это сообщение. Не останьтесь равнодушны. Помогите пожалуйста!
I have a Samsung Galaxy Note20 5G. It installed a software update yesterday, and now I cannot make or receive phone calls. If I try to call out, it disconnects immediately (makes the sound like a call ended), and incoming calls go straight to voicemail without ringing. Texting and data appear to be working OK. How can this be corrected?
Cricket has basically HIJACKED TWO iphones on our plan with them and REFUSE to UNLOCK them!! I have been with Cricket for over a year and the phone was purchased from Best Buy as UNLOCKED!! When I went to another provider, they claim to have unlocked my phones, but that has yet to happen! I have gone 3 days without a phone and had to purchase a new one because Cricket REFUSES to release my phone that they never had the authority to lock! My daughter is now stuck and although she received a message that her phone has been unlocked, it has not! This should be a class action lawsuit!! How does Cricket get away with this????EXTREMELY DISSATISFIED CUSTOMER!
HiJust recently my fairly new S10 has been showing the above message at least once a day, even if I haven't been playing a game. I've had a couple of casual games on my phone since I've had it but this is a recent notification, any idea of how to fix it? I can't delete the optimizer unfortunately.Thanks in advance.
I wonder if anyone else is finding that WhatsApp isn't functioning like it should on their Samsung S10+. My main issue is when I try to search for a GIF the screen goes funny and the keyboard doesn't pop up to type the search. Also, when sending an attachment, your give the option to send it quickly to your most recent/popular recipients but when you tap one of them it just loads all the other send options.
Long story short. Had a rush need to upgrade to mobile hotspot for work. Have a Moto G 6, checked Cricket’s compatibility guide and saw I’d need something newer. Alright, I can stay Motorola as the G Power is on list and on the shelf at Target, yoink and boom. No hotspot.Various song and dances with Cricket support end with essentially “Get bent as you didn’t buy it from us.” Fine, whatever. Most I can chase down the rabbit is something about Cricket (well, their AT&T overlords) built out the mobile hotspot feature using dual APNs and they’ll be fookered if they can be bothered push out the proper firmware.So here’s the issue. If I’m on the hook, I may as well go big. Several Samsungs, to be frank, Cricket doesn’t sell. Hell, even the S20 FE in some other color than the blue is off the table, apparently, if I go through them. What actual models are compatible? Don’t point me at that list on names with an asterisk that it may/may not work; it screwed me over once already
the Moto G Power is sold by Cricket. The IMEI number for my BYOD Moto G Power checks out as “Yay! Your XT2041-4 is compatible!” The Moto G Power is literally listed by Cricket as a phone that supports Cricket’s mobile hotspots with an eligible plan.Nowhere I could find (guess I should have checked here instead of the information coming from Cricket directly) is the fact that my Cricket mobile hotspot will NOT support my Moto G Power because I didn’t buy it from Cricket. Different answers from customer service on every call, although at least they all tried to sell me a phone. Cricket was unwilling to help, despite the fact that I could have had them send me a free Moto G Power literally four days earlier when I activated the lineThe hell of this is that it is evident from this forum that this is known issue, yet Cricket continues to put out misleading information. This is how you lose a customer not for today, but for the next 40 years.
