Phones & Devices
I purchased an unlocked Samsung Note 9 in December 2019. I used my Cricket sim card and continued service with them. However, their coverage strength diminished at my office to the point that I could not call, text, receive texts or voicemails at my work place. I tried to switch over to Verizon, only to find that Cricket locked my UNLOCKED phone. They said their policy, like other cell providers, requires 6 months paid service before unlocking the phone. WHAT?! WHAT RIGHT DID THEY HAVE TO LOCK AN UNLOCKED PHONE I BROUGHT TO A MONTH TO MONTH PLAN? They would not budge. That was in January, one month into use of the new phone. Now it's July. Their sixth month period of required paid service has passed. THEY STILL WILL NOT UNLOCK THE PHONE!!!!! TERRIBLE!!!! WHAT KIND OF "SERVICE" IS THIS? I will scream from the rooftops for people not to use Cricket.&n
I have been a customer for 2 years & cricket is refusing to unlock my iPhone 7. I paid cash for this phone & no where on my receipt does it say this particular phone has to be in use for 6 months before it will be unlocked. I have 1 month until I hit that 6 months & I am going abroad. In store they told me my phone was unlocked & useable abroad. It’s not. Calling customer service was pointless. They told me it needed to be active 6 months then 7 months & they can’t help because the system is what unlocks phones. They can unlock at anytime for military so I know this can be rectified by UNLOCKING my phone. If anyone knows how to get this unlocked please advise. Waiting the month is not an option.
Since the last update my autocorrect feature has been acting up, finishing words automatically with the first part of the word still attached. As you can see in my title it causes a lot of issues when typing even simple sentences, requiring a lot of going back and retyping what was messed up. ThanksWalmart one login
A few days ago I transferred my service to ATT. I tried to use my cricket iphone 11 and it said it was locked because i haven't had 6 paid months of service. Well, my cricket account is closed, i only had 5 months of service, and now i have ATT and a paid off $1200 phone i cant use over one month of service. I wasn't made aware of the unlock policy initially, but i understand it. Since i have cancelled my account, with 5 paid months, can i please just pay you for the remaining month of service for an unlock code?
Looked around and didn’t see anyone mention this... With it being such a problem now (that we can see it happening), it would e nice if Apple would allow the um sers to block clipboard https://xender.vip/ pasting/reading (like location or notifications) on a per app basishttps://nox.tips/
Is a tie between the camera and the battery life. My phone will still have about 60-70% battery left at the end of the day, whereas my wife’s new Galaxy Note will be almost dead towards the end of the day.AppvnThe camera on both are comparable, and most of the diffs seem to boil down to personal preference, but I still love the camera on this phone!SHAREit
I'm moving to central Alaska in the winter and its not uncommon for temperatures to reach -60°F (-51°C). Will my Galaxy S10 still be usable in that condition? Maybe someone here has experience with that. I'm assuming iPhones would also operate in similar conditions.Greatpeople.me
From time to time I will receive a batch of voicemail days after the callers left their messages. The standard reply is to delete old voicemail messages, update and restart phone. All of these have been done and are kept up to date and yet the problem sporadically exists. It does no good for people to leave voicemail if I can’t be certain I’ll receive them immediately. There are occasions when it’s vital that messages be received immediately. Is this an issue specific to Cricket? Shall I look into other carriers that might be more reliable in this area? I have no other complaints with the company but this ONE is enough to consider changing carriers.

Got a G7 when we signed for Cricket back in September 2019. Activated the phone at the time and made sure to use it occasionally (a day here and there over the course of several months) between then and June 2020 (typically we use the SIM in an iPhone, so I popped it out, made some calls, etc.). Contacted Cricket yesterday to have the G7 unlocked and they said it's only been active for 5 days and was not eligible.VidMateGiven that I activated the phone nearly 9 months ago, used the phone over the course of those 9 months (admittedly only occasionally) and paid my Cricket bill over those 9 months, I feel strongly that Cricket should unlock my phone.word counterThere's nothing in their policy that states I must use the phone daily for 6 months - but apparently that's what they mean by "active" in the following - "The device you want to unlock has been active for at least six months of paid service on that device." Given that I've paid the same amount to Cricket as someone who u
I always had a custom Greeting for my voicemail. Recently my iPhone 8 was updated with ios 13.5.1. Seems that after that update voicemail is always going to default greeting. I followed Cricket's instructions of resetting PIN and then recording a custom greeting. Voicemail still goes to default greeting. Tried to change message on iPhone itself, changed selection from Default to Custom. Recorded a custom greeting. But voicemail still goes to default message. Web search says Apple problem, other say carrier problem. Any one have a solution??
Last Sunday, July 5th, my prior phone simply died that morning. I was staying at a friend's house in Burleson, Texas. I was taken to a local Cricket store and purchased a new phone a few hours later in the afternoon. Just days later I began to have problems with this phone. It wouldn't let me answer and was kicking the caller to voicemail after two rings.I live in Garland, TX and this is where I purchased my last phone and setup my account. I walked in this morning, July 11th, and was then told, "Sorry, we can't do anything and you have to go back to the original store." This is 60 minutes away. The problem with this is that I can't drive. I have no way to get there. I simply don't see how on earth that as a customer for several years that a phone can't be returned at this store. I actually wanted to upgrade to a better phone. Yet, I rather take a slap in the face saying too bad.
I've had a few issues of late with a BYOD Android phone, the Huawei Honor 6x, and I'm curious whether they're more so a problem with the phone itself or something to do with my SIM card. For the record, all apps are up-to-date, as well as the Huawei firmware. Android version is 7.0 (Nougat).1) Longest-standing issue. Let's say I send a text in a group that has 3 different people in it. If one of them responds, it creates an entirely new group in my message history that lists the 3 different people, plus my own phone number. And when I respond in that group, any messages I send are also "received" as though they're from someone else. SIM card issue or phone issue? For the record, I don't have the issue when using other messaging apps like Google Hangouts, GroupMe, or Facebook Messenger (all of which, I presume, use WiFi and/or LTE).2) Within the past week, I've had an issue in Messages, when I'm sending a text, it'll say "Sending..." for quite some time, before flagging it that the mess
Hi All, I've been happy with Cricket for over 2 years now and my Motorola Moto G5 phone, with one exception. Whenever I send a video text or receive one, it is always very poor quality. I understand some companies throttle videos over the cellular network to various degrees. Does this happen to everyone else? Any way to work around it? Thanks!!
Is anyone else not overly impressed with the A71 camera? Firstly macro = fantastic, never use it but fantastic, live photo mode = fantastic again never use it, wide-angle = fantastic have used this a couple of times. Where it falls short for me is the ordinary camera which unfortunately I use 99% of the time. In bright daylight its great no problem, slightest darkness and noise starts creeping in, if you zoom in slightly lines become jagged and unsmooth, if you don't hold it steady images blur, its let down badly by lack of image stabilization. Then we have video camera which again I never use. The camera has lAppvnots of gimmicks such as macro which are great but I feel they should have sorted out the main camera as for me its not really good enough, my old S5 performs better in this department.

Hey Everyone, I'm just wondering about Phones in general.I heard that low signal will drain battery but would being in a area on Cricket Wireless that drops signal and regains it like several times a day drain the battery worse than having 1 bars of signal?Basically will the times I don't have signal drain the battery heavier than weak signal.
