Phones & Devices
Hi, I have a Moto G7 Supra which was purchased from Cricket and I have had it for over 6 months with them. I'm trying to get it unlocked but I'm having problems.When I go to my online account and try, it says I must use the "mycricket app" in order to get the code. If I go to the "mycricket app" and try, it says "sorry this device cannot be unlocked.I believe I meet all eligibility requirements as I have been paying for over 6 months now and it's a Cricket phone paid in full with no restrictions that I know of.
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.
I just purchased an unlocked S20 FE, direct from Samsung. I have also been using Cricket Wireless for about 3 years now, with an unlocked S9 Plus. However, after putting my SIM card in the S20 FE, I received a message that the device is not compatible with their network. When I made a call to Cricket's customer service, I was told that there is nothing they can do to activate my new phone with their network. Even though Cricket offers the exact same phone for sale, through their website! It seems like Cricket is moving toward forcing their customers to purchase phones through them. Which is a shame, because that is going to force me to do business with a different wireless network.
So, I spoke to Samsung today and they assured me that my note 8 would be able to function on the network as long as it has the latest software upgrade. This was also explained to me by a cricket employee at the local store.Can someone from Cricket answer the question... why is this phone not listed as a compatible device? It is perfectly capable of operating on the network as a 4g device. Is there something that can be done to correct the oversight?
Hello All! The new OnePlus 8T has been launched in the unlocked form to the masses and includes 5G support. I was curious if Cricket had plans to support this network connectivity on this phone, or in the future. There shouldn't be any weird red tape considering it is OnePlus, I wouldn't think at least.
We are new to Cricket service since August, have noticed recently I am unable to send any text messages from within the default message app on my Samsung S7 to a group of people, any that contains pictures or any gifs. I've tried doing all the things I found on the internet including restarting my phone, resetting the APN settings and restarting my phone, and I checked the message center number which is 312-314-9810. It spins and spins for about 5 minutes, then errors out and says Message not sent. Can someone please help with this? Very frustrating. I had AT&T prior and did not have this problem at all. I have unlimited data on this phone and this seems to have become a problem in the last month that I've noriced.
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
I bought a new phone the LGK92 on Nov 14 2020. It keeps shutting off and it will stay off and wont turn back on. I have only had it for a couple days. I went into the store in Spanish Fork UT and they don't want to do anything to help me exchange the phone or return it. This is not ok I will never buy anything from cricket ever again.
This is the list of compatible Motorola phones from this link:https://www.cricketwireless.com/support/great-big-network/compatible-phones.htmlMotorola g6 Forge Motorola moto e5 CRUISE Motorola moto e5 SUPRA Motorola moto g7 SUPRAThese phones are already old! If you buy a newer Motorola phone that does support VoLTE (HD Voice) your line will be disabled, and you will need to go back-and-forth with support to get them to activate it. The T-Mobile network (includes Mint Mobile and Metro PCS) has the same VoLTE requirements but they have a much bigger list that includes newer phones.I personally bought a Motorola One Zoom, and was told by Cricket support that it wasn’t compatible because it “didn’t support VoLTE.” So I returned that phone. The One Zoom was a last-gen phone. Doing some research I saw the Motorola G7 phones were “compatible,” but those phones are 2 years old. Surely the G9 plus would be compatible, and it supports VoLTE. Nope. I purchased it, and I had to go through
Hello,Everyime I login to the mycricket app on my moto e5 cruise it shows a red banner up top says "we cannot find an internet connection..". I've reinstalled the app, made sure it's the most up to date and even tried another phone with the aim card.. Same result. Otherwise phone is operating fine..What's interesting is in the background it's actually logged in. I have brought this issue up to cricket via support and Twitter and I have gotten no where. I see a few other posts on the play store comments mentioning the same issue and was wondering if there was any insight to the issue?Thanks,Pete
I have been with cricket for over 4 years. It absolutely pi$$es me off to no end that a new customer only pays $274 for a new s9 and me, a loyal customer, gets charged $549 for the same phone!!!! And gets charged a $25 activation fee for it also. Cricket executives must just be raking in the $$$ over this petty kind of nonsense. Cricket DOES NOT CARE ABOUT LOYALTY!!!! I'll be shopping elsewhere to a provider that will recognize a loyal dollar when they see one!
I am considering updating my S4 to an unlocked S10. The S4 uses a micro SIM Card while the S10 uses a nano SIM Card. My S4 SIM Card is old enough not to be part of the Universal SIM Card kit, so it does not simply punch out to nano size.Questions:I understand that I need to get the nano SIM Card from the local Cricket store. Can this be done in advance of receiving the new phone without disrupting service on the current SIM card in the S4?I would like to have the new SIM card ready for when the new phone arrives, but not activate it until I am ready to setup the new phone. Is this possible? Or does the new SIM card activate automatically when it is issued at the store?Are there any extra fees associated with getting the SIM card in the store as opposed to online? I didn't see an option to generate a new SIM card via online purchase.
I noticed today that my phone has am app downloaded that I never authorized: Pluto TV. Google has a thread about this and the majority of the people from 2 days ago are customers with the same complaint. Why is this app able to do this Cricket without my permission but with your company's on my behalf?
Hey guys! So I recently bought a unlocked Moto G 5G Plus from amazon. Being it’s unlocked, I expected I could use it with cricket. When I first put my sim card in, it said “log into cricket”. When I did, it said my account was suspended. I later went the store and we called customer service. He said the phone was not compatable with circket. He later unsuspended my account. It was weird bc I put the sim back in and it was working perfect. I could make calls, web search for hours. Than I went to sleep. When I woke up, it was suspended again. I called Cricket again and they said “it’s not a hq voice”. I have no idea what this is. Idk why my phone wont work with cricket. Legit i have seen many people with the same phone mention how their phones work with cricket. I mean, it legit worked for me for hours. Even hours after i went to sleep bc i seen mssgs from 3 hours before I woke up. Can someone please help?
I’m thinking of buying a new Galaxy S10+ from Fingerhut. It is unlocked and a GSM phone. It says it can be used on AT@T and other gsm carriers. Will this work with cricket? I’ve been a customer of 5 years and currently have an IPhone 6s Plus that I want to pass along to my daughter who is on my account. I don’t want to buy a $1,019 phone if it’s not going to work with Cricket. I’m very happy with my service and I am worried that I will have trouble with the new phone. Also, will I still be able to keep my phone unlocked or will you lock it when I bring it in? I will be keeping my number. Anyway, thank you in advance for your help.
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?
I have the cricket HTC desire 625. The internal storage is terribly small and with all the junk that cones on the phone it leaves very little space for anything I actually want. I have an SD card but I can't figure it how to directly download things to it and most of the things already on the phone can't be moved to it. Is it even possible to make the SD card the default storage?
