I posted the other day about my girlfriends dream 5G which she has had for close to 2 months that has worked amazingly well, until the other day. Cricket came on here and marked the issue as resolved which it has not been resolved. We have PAID OUT MY POCKET for a new sim card when we were told that was the solution that we needed to do, Why I had to pay 10 bucks and some change for that, is beyond me. The problem we are having is the data connection will drop out every 5 mins or so and will not come back on unless you either turn the phone on and off, reset network settings, or airplane mode on and off and every time it comes back, the best we have got is 15 mins out of it. I have called the overseas tech support they use and have to go through the same damn troubleshooting steps every damn time only for them to think they got it fixed when it is still acting up soon as the call is over, I was told to submit a warranty claim on it which I followed the link in my last post and when I e
I have a Galaxy S10e, and per Cricket’s page, it is compatible after the 3G sunset. But two days ago it stopped making/receiving calls. Everything else works; text, data, GPS, WiFi, etc, but it won’t make calls, and when someone calls me it goes straight to voicemail, which I can’t get either because I can’t make a call. I never reecived notice from Cricket that I would have an issue with the 3G sunset, which is supported by the fact that my phone is compatible per Cricket’s “3G Sunset” page. I talked w/ Tech Support and after a half-hour, they were able change my LTE to H+ And I was able to make calls, but that only lasted an hour. As soon as I drove away from my house my phone reverted to LTE and I couldn’t make any calls. I stopped at the Burien Cricket store and the lady there told me that my phone isn’t compatible and that Cricket is offering free comparable phones for people affected by the 3G sunset, though then she told me I’m not eligible for some reason. She seemed to
I have had this Moto G Stylus 5G 2021 for over a year now, fully paid off at time of purchase, and decided to unlock the device (even though I am not planning to switch carriers at this time). I tried to do it online on the website, and it prompted me that I had to do it through the MyCricket application. I tried, and got "Received HTTP 400 with reason: " error. Tried doing it through Wi-Fi, same thing. Tried clearing cache and data on the MyCricket app, and still no dice. The app is also up to date. Can anyone assist me in what to do further? Thank you in advance. Edit: solved through rebooting device. Device is unlocked now.
I bought a Cricket phone from Walmart to add my dad and stepmom onto my account. Took it to the Cricket store where they added my parents to the account, took my money, but then said phone wouldn’t activate. Told me to take it back to Walmart and get another phone and bring it back. So I did. Same thing...wouldn’t activate. Told me to call customer service, so I did. FOUR TIMES. Every representative either hung up on me or told me the problem would be fixed if I would just power the phone down and then boot it back up. NOTHING WORKED and I still have a phone my dad can’t use but still being charged. I am not rude on the phone with the representatives. They all say they need to put me on hold to fix the problem and then they just disconnect. I don’t know what to do to get the phone activated since no one is willing to help. So incredibly frustrating.
Hello,I just bought a new LG Harmony 4 phone and I am not receiving text notifications. That is, I don't receive an audible tone or vibration or screen message when a text message arrives. I do get the text messages, but no notification of them. I have tried to adjust the notification settings for the Messaging app, but I am only able to receive notifications if the screen is on. That is, when the phone is on standby with the screen off, I do not get the text message notifications.I realize that this is a new model, and that the behavior may be a software bug. Can you help me to fix or work around this problem?Thank you.
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?
I own an Apple 11 on Cricket. I am not receiving some texts and they only appear on my phone when I restart it. I had some contacts send me over 8 texts over a few days, I received none of them, restarted my phone, and they all immediately arrived.I receive some texts just fine, but some will not arrive at all. How do I fix this? Texting is my most used function on Cricket and it is not working.Thank You.
Brand new Moto G Stylus phone from Cricket.In areas where cellular service isn’t great… but there is marginal signal.Turn on WiFi calling, and it always says "Please try again later".Tried turning phone to “airplane mode”, then turn on WiFi… get the same message.Rebooting phone… doesn’t help.Call to support… I might as well have gone through the Burger King drive through and asked for help.Yes, WiFi is solid… no problem accessing websites. Have tried via different WiFi networks… same results. Do have another softphone app on the Moto… it works fine.Any thoughts?
I purchased a Cricket compatible and supposedly unlocked Samsung Galaxy s7 from a well-reviewed user on Ebay. I purchased a Cricket universal sim card from Best Buy and went through the activation process here. I wanted to keep my previous phone number, and the new phone shows up under my number on the My Account page. I got a notification saying changes had been made to my account on my old phone as well.The problem is that I keep getting an invalid sim card notification on the new device. I've tried a factory reset and I can't insert my old phone's sim card into the new one as they are different sizes (micro in old, nano in new) to see if the phone is indeed unlocked. How can I get this thing activated and working?
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
