Hi there! I'm new to the community. I am in search of some wisdom. I am trying to decide between the Moto 7 Supra and the Galaxy s9. I am in the process of becoming a single mom, but I do need a good working phone that will last me a while and will do more than just be a basic phone. Both of these phones seem to have decent ratings, but I'd love to hear your pros and cons. Or even better, someone who has used them both. The price on the Galaxy is more expensive, so not spending as much would be great. But I don't want to spend it if the cheaper phone is comparable and dependable. I definitely need dependable, something where the OS will be supported for a decent amount of time (I have old phone/mac that are not supported anymore on many sites including bank.)Thanks for your hellp!
My wife uses an LG Harmony phone running Android 7.0. When there is a voicemail waiting for her, a little message-waiting icon shows up in the top line of the phone, among the many other icons that are usually there.I'm looking for an option to display a more prominent notification when there is a voicemail waiting. Is there anything in the basic phone configuration that I'm missing that could do that?The phone says that Cricket Visual Voicemail is installed, but as best I can tell that doesn't do what I'm looking for.Looking in the app store, my impression is that most of the voicemail apps are for voice-to-text conversion. I see an app called "Better VoiceMail Notifier Pro" that maybe is what I'm looking for, but its user rating is mediocre.Thanks for any help or advice that you can offer.Ken
I purchase a brand new phone through a leasing agent but upon getting the phone started having issues I called and no one even bother to try and troubleshoot it immediately I was told to send it in but afterwards I was told I was getting a refurbished phone but still pain for a brand new phone through the leasing Agent I called many times and even ask my phone back and was told no by the warranty department I am so upset and feel scammed
Whats the deal with this?I like the content on AppleTV+ but everytime I use the TV app I have to click all the way to the bottom to finally get to AppleTV+ shows.Even worse is I literally don't use the TV app for anything else except AppleTV+ content. You would think by now the advanced AI would know to put AppleTV+ content on the first row. But no. It buries it waaayyyyyy down the bottom.Even worse a ton of the rows above are for HBO, Netflix, Showtime, ect......stuff I don't even had subscriptions to. Why are they showing me all this crap I don't have access to?
Been enjoying this phone for over a year & a half without any issues. Out of nowhere, upon turning my phone on this morning, it on shows a black screen asking me to accept, "Cricket Wi-Fi Manager License" Of which, I've been trying to do so (clicking onto I Agree) the phone remains 'locked' & will not allow me to go any further.The phone rings, I can't answer it. I hear chats coming through, can't open them up to see. It remains locked onto that screen & can't or won't go further.Not sure what to do here....
I have been unable to get voicemail set up on my iPhone, even with the assistance of a customer service rep at 611. The message on my system says, "Welcome to the message management system" and asks for the number being called. If I enter my number, it says that it is not a valid number. I have now had my VM rest 3x, turned my phone on and off with each reset and still no luck>>>>PLEASE HELP!
I have the Turbo Hotspot (Netgear AC797S) at a remote location connected to web cams and smart thermostats. I'd like to have the ability to change the configuration as needed at home without being physically at the remote location. Is there a way to do this? The port forwarding option only lists the wifi connected devices and not the hotspot itself.
I have noticed over the last several months that I have not been receiving calls while at my office. I have full signal showing in the status bar and signal strength shows at -90 dBm 50 asu on LTE. While not directly next to a window, I do have line of sight to a wall of windows about 15 yards away. I often only find out about the missed calls one of two ways: text message or voicemail from the caller, and I only get the voicemail notification if I move to another location within the building. I have 2 other lines on my account and my line is the only one this regularly happens to.Quick device info:Pixel 2 XL carrier unlocked, Android 10 with December security patch, default APN settings imported from Cricket during initial setup
I can't even find a way to search for this bizarre behavior.I have had a Cricket voice mail account for many years. Callers are greeted with "Hi,<caller name>, <my name> is not available..."When my wife calls, she is greeted by "Hi, Phyllis..." My wifes name is not Phyllis!The greeting works correctly for my other contacts. I have tried changing her contact info, etc., to no avail. This has happened on three different phones I have owned over the years.I know it grabs the name from my contacts, but her contact info is not shared with a "Phyllis," or anyone else. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Cricket support?Help, it is driving my wife and I nuts.
Has anyone with a Samsung A50 been able to utilize the wifi capability with Cricket? I have almost no service at my home and solely rely on the wifi option and before I order a new unlocked A50 phone I wanted to see if anyone was having success with it and the wifi calling option. The A50 is not on the approved listing for WiFi capable phones supported by Cricket and their tech support could not tell me if it would work or why it was not listed.
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'm sure this is somewhere, but I can't find it. I need text and call reminder alerts, but I can't find a setting to turn it on. When a call or a text comes in, I get the initial alert tone or ring tone, but if I miss the call or text, the phone doesn't give me any more alert tones that I have a missed call or message. If the phone is in my purse or if I leave it on my desk when I leave the room, I miss the initial alert/ring. People are really getting annoyed at me that I'm missing their texts or not responding to their phone calls that I'm constantly having to check the phone to see if I missed anything. My previous phone would give an alert beep every 8 or 10 minutes until I viewed the missed message or checked the call list for the missed call. I want this phone to do that, too. How can I make it do that?
