Moto g7 message delay
I recently switched from a Samsung to the Moto G7 Supra. The phone is great but have been having problems where messages sometimes get delayed. Last night I am on a group email and all of a sudden 8 messages come through at once all stating they were just sent which is strange since the email chain involved asking a question where people were answering. Doesn't happen all the time but happens on both cell service or Wi-Fi. Not sure why having this problem since never an issue with my old amp prime. Any ideas? Thanks
Sudden Battery Drain on Samsung M51
I recently updated my M51 to OneUI 3.A couple days after the update, 1 Hr 45 Mins on YouTube would only take 8.3%. Right now, 40 mins on YouTube went through 5%. It's the same with other apps as well.I've kept almost all apps in sleep or deep sleep. Only auto-sync is on. Yet, I am still facing sudden battery drain.What can I do about this?
Why can’t iPhone choose charging power?
Correct me if I’m wrong: iPhones chargers are set at 5V and a variable amps which finally determine the power of the charger (V x amps)So I thought why can’t iPhone choose how much amps take? Certain boards can actually take more or less power based on their necessity. Is it because on the iPhone we are charging a battery and not a board?This way there wouldn’t be the need of so many chargers for different charging speed.
Xianomi Mi A3
I have read that these phones support 4G+ and 4G itself, and when I put in my EMEI to check if I can use these phones on the Cricket wireless network, it had stated that 3G is no longer supported. If it supposedly can use 4G and beyond, how come it isn’t compatible, or is there something I am missing?
Turbo2 mobile hotspot and icloud email issue
I was having issues connecting to my icloud email while using Outlook. Off my 5 email accounts, 4 worked, but the icloud on did not when I was using the mobile hot spot. After speaking with customer service for quite a while, there was still no solution. However, long story short, after fumbling around, I did end up solving the problem. I logged onto the device user interface online (hotspot.webui) and under the security option, clicked to allow email (Initially, only http and https were clicked to allow). That seemed to do the trick.
Before deciding on your current phone, which others were on your shortlist?
The Oneplus 9 announcements reminded me that I seriously considered getting the OP7Pro, along with Galaxy Note 9, Xiaomi Mi 9T, and Nubia Z20. My search criteria on gsmarena was "notchless OLED".Price, updates, and local warranty were the crucial factors why the other phones ultimately didn't get the rose. The Mi 9T woulda been the one if they officially sold them in Canada, though I think about "What coulda been" with the Note 9 the most.Which phones were your final candidates, and how did you decide which ones didn't make the cut?
Phone worked last week. Today it's "incompatible!"
We passed my wife's Galaxy S7, which she's used over a year on Cricket, to my daughter. We put her Cricket SIM card, which she had on a 4G LTE Cricket phone for over a year into this one and now it's considered incompatible. Took it to the useless store, who tried to sell me a crap phone. Why all of the sudden this 4G phone and 4G SIM are "incompatible?" It's up to date and everything.
S21 Ultra Overheating Question
Hi everyone. Sorry if this has been posted before, but I got my new phone with 256GB yesterday. When I touch the phone after not doing a lot (downloading apps), the phone feels hot to the touch. Internal temperature is around 35 degrees Celsius. I'm coming from the S8+ and never had this issue. I've also factory reset the phone and did not use smart switch (as I read this could be an issue), same problem.Just wondering, is your S21 Ultra warm to the touch? I don't feel like that's normal. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Phone is full but only 10gb is used out of the 108??
Hi.S20 5G.When I plug my phone into my PC it says I have a total capacity of 108GB but only 2gb free. The files inside only make up 10gb. What is going on? I have only had the phone for a month and have very few apps installed beyond the bloatware. Also very few pics, media etc.I was recording 60fps UHD videos earlier but deleted them via the Gallery app. Are the videos not fully deleted (trash can or something?)Is the operating system / apps etc. really taking up 90GB?
I bought a Pixel 4a one month ago.
My phone broke and figured I'd buy a cheap phone until I get the next flagship that appeals to me. I settled on the Pixel 4a. Although I had some reservations from reviews:Some said slow (MKB)Some said the video was bad and the audio wasn't greatJust one cameraIt's smallSo the results?When I first got it one thing stood out: This phone is slippery as #*! I needed to get a case right away as a drop was coming.The speed? It's very fast compared to older phones. I think tech reviewers are used to comparing top line products and not realizing users upgrade from older phones. The speed on this phone is great.Fingerprint censor is great and super responsiveAudio is loud when listening to music, which surprised me. Many said it was weak. But the sound from recordings is pretty bad. I often record audio (guitar/songs) and it's very tinny...so that's a bummer.The battery is very good! I am pleasantly surprised. I always get an all day use with room to spare.The size is small, but as I said, it
5g network problem?
Why does the 5g network that is out now being so shitty as of recently?I go from 5g one minute to LTE then to 4g the nxt. I want to either get this fix or yall need to stop advertising that yall have the best 5g network until u can get this fix cause it messes up my game and thats the whole reason y i went with this phone is for the faster network and storage space.
Closing of 3g network and HD voice requirements for 2022
Good Morning, I have an Alcatel Verso. I barely get 4g speeds, it says its LTE, yet it is always painfully slow. I understand its a cheap budget phone, but that doesn’t mean I’m suppose to get 3g speeds. Along with that I’ve dug into reviews, along with other websites and found that it does not support HD Voice. Will I get a discount for upgrading, not just the $100 off. Im going to be frank, I see other carriers that offer better deals for people who trade up and stay on their service. I’ve been a AT&T customer for 6 years, 5 of that with Cricket, which I wasn’t able to get a deal because I was switching from the parent company.
Seriously? This is how you retain custimers?
So I'm toying with the idea of upgrading my phone to a Samsung S20 FE. Take a look at the website and see it's $399. But wait..... As soon as I log into my account, the price jumps to $599. Seriously?!! This is how you entice customers to stay with the service? Disgusting. Totally and thoroughly disgusting. And before the obligatory "contact us on Twitter or Farcebook" reply pops up, I don't do social media.
Riiso 4 Wifi Connection issues
I just bought my daughter and I new phones at the end of February. Both are Cricket LG Risio 4’s. These phones do not stay connected to the internet. We have 10 gb of data each and I blew threw mine in less than 10 days. She is almost at her 10. We have home wifi that we connect to and for whatever reason these phones are constantly losing connection to our wifi. We have reset our internet modem and router multiple times. We have tried the static method and also the dynamic method. We have forgotten the network and reset it multiple times. I am just at a loss what to do. This is 2 phones and they are horrible with our network connection. I should mention that we have 3 other phones with cricket and not a single issue with them being connected to out home wifi connection. Does anyone have any suggestions? I wanted to see if anyone knows a work around or a way to fix before I spent countless hours on the phone with tech who may or may not be able to help. If it was only 1 phone I could s
Cricket manager stole my phone
Hi I would like to know how or where can I complaint about cricket Wireless manager that stole my phone. I already call to customer service two times it's been more then 4 months without getting answers. They just said or we have the name on the manager but they don't nothing to help me. I have more than 10 years been a cricket Wireless Customer I'm really disappointed with cricket Wireless. How you supposed to trust a company when their own manager stole your phone.
Misinformation - SCAM
ON THE CRICKET WEBSITE - IF YOU SWITCH TO THEIR NETWORK YOU WILL GET THE IPHONE 6S FOR $49.99. WELL, THAT'S NOT THE CASE WHEN I SWITCHED TO THIS NETWORK. BEFORE I ORDERING 2 SIM CARDS, I CALLED AND ASKED ABOUT THE PHONE. A LADY (WISHED I WROTE HER NAME DOWN) TOLD ME THAT WHEN I RECEIVED MY SIM CARDS TO CALL AND ACTIVE THEM AFER THAT WE (CRICKET) WILL SEND ME THE PHONE THAT WAS ON 5/18/20. I RECEIVED THE SIM CARDS YESTERDAY 5/20/20, CALLED ACTIVATED THEM, ASKED ME TO WAIT FOR 4 HRS FOR THE PHONES TO WORK. AFTER 4 HRS I CALLED TO GET THE PHONE (IPHONE 6S FOR $49.99), THEY TOLD ME I CANNOT GET THE PHONE BECAUSE I HAVE ALREADY ACTIVATED MY PHONES...WHAT??? I EXPLAINED TO THEM WHAT I HAD TOLD BY ONE OF THEIR STAFF. THE SUPERVISOR THAT I TALKED TO DID NOT EVEN CARE AND TOLD ME THAT WILL NOT HAPPEN FOR ME TO GET THE PHONE FOR $49.99. I HAVE BEEN AWARE THAT CRICKET HAS THE MOST RUDE AND NON-PROFESSIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE, WELL, I EXPERIENCE THIS YESTERDAY. HOW THE HELL I FOLLOW W
Can’t use voice input while on a call? — galaxy s21
I just got the S21. While on a call, I tried to reply to a text using the microphone (voice input to text). I got a notification that says “can’t use voice input while on a call.” So it’s prohibited. By default, voice input is controlled by Samsung. I also switched to google for voice input to see if that worked. I don’t get an error message but Google says something to the effect of “I didn’t catch that,” so it doesn’t work either at the moment.Any workaround for this? Is this an android 11 issue? I could voice text while on a call on a galaxy note 4 (android 6). All these years later and the S21 is incapable of doing this? Frustrating.
Hello I’m trying to upgrade my phone but it’s saying there’s an order pending. It’s saying the order is a phone that we’ve already bought, received, and activated. Is there any way we can get rid of that because we already activated it? As for my new upgrade the payment is now processing, but if we clear the order pending will it go through all the way?
