Phones & Devices
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?
Hi all,My question is a two parter. First off, I will be purchasing a new iPhone outright through Apple store because my job gives me a discount. When I put my Cricket SIM card into my phone, will Cricket lock my unlocked phone? Second, if Cricket does lock the unlocked phone, can it be unlocked in a week or less if I decide to go to another carrier? I see that Cricket says you need to be a paid customer for 6 months with the device, but that only refers to phones purchased through cricket. If it can be unlocked in a week or less, how would I do that?
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??
So to start off i had cricket and my phone for the 6 month time period and also met the other requirements to get the unlock code, so i could switch carriers, and i went through the process and all seemed good to go but when i switched over to the new Carrier I had signal/data issues where I would have no service or data, but it would periodically work just fine(good signal and all) just thought is was on their end and after taking with thier customer support they never where able to help me out with the issues but never mentioned anything about my phone being locked or unlocked so i switched carriers again, still having the same issues but this time they tell me my new Carrier tells me my phone is locked, so I'm I try and sign back into my old cricket account and I can't, I have he correct sign in information but can't login to try an unlock my phone again, so I've just been pretty much wasting time and money service I can't use because as it turns out my phone was never really unlock
Not only did they suspend my phone and say it wasn't compatible (though it operates on all the right bands and uses 4gVoLTE & VoWifi), cricket has also locked my unlocked phone which now cant meet the required amount of activation to be unlocked. It's brand new and useless. I was offered a free replacement only to forced to pay for it. Then when it crapped out a month later I find out that there isn't any way for them to unlock my personal phone they locked. If that were true how then do deployed military persons get their phones unlocked before the six month period? So much for being loyal since their begining. Not even a third party repair shop can unlock it. My career has gone down the drain in the last six months because of this. I've made my report to the FCC but what good does that do me.
This began yesterday intermittently on both mine and my boyfriend's phones where it was showing we could only make emergency calls but then it worked again until around noon today when my phone disconnected from the cricket network and won't reconnect no matter how many times I try to reconnect it. I've restarted my phone repeatedly but it still isn't reconnecting to the cricket network. How do I fix this issue? I had to borrow a friend's phone in order to be able to call or look up the issue on the website and I'd like to be able to use my phone My phone bill is due tomorrow so I know that it isn't a billing issue. Thanks in advance.
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.
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 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 bought this phone from marketplace from an individual that made me believe I can put my Sim chip in it and it work as should with my number. Problem is I can't unlock it because I don't have the phone number associated with the device. Is there any way around this?
Will the new Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G (Factory Unlocked) be compatible for use on the Cricket Network?I don't need to see the compatibility list. This phone is a new release. Cricket does sell the S21 FE 5G, but my fiancé ordered the 256gb unlocked version directly from Samsung.
I have the ovation 2 and I have had issues in the past with it freezing up. Now it is saying no service/emergency calls only it just started that today. I have tried powering off and restart and that did not work. I don't know what to do I haven't even had this phone for a year. My son's phone is on my account and his is working.
With things moving to 5G, a lot of people have been forced to get new phones recently. When doing that, many will look to get the latest phone models. I've always got the latest Samsung Galaxy S. series and was surprised Cricket doesn't carry any of them. So they have basically eliminated that market. Other carriers are giving deals on those phones! Oh well, I checked and was told I could buy an unlocked phone elsewhere as long as it was listed in their supported phones Iist. Yay, the S22 is supported! So I went to Samsung and purchased my new S22. I also bought a case, screen protector, camera lens protector, and phone popsocket grip. I should be all set. The Sim card is the same size. I move the Sim a ND power it back on. No problem! I can make calls and send texts, so I start setting things up. The next day I go to setup my hotspot so I can go online with my laptop. What happens?This phone is not supported for hotspot!!!!! What the %@!$%# Call Cricket and I'm told they plan to supp
I'm planning on purchasing an iPhone12 Pro. I'm assuming that it will work on Cricket and all I have to do is to purchase an unlocked phone? The only concern I have is that the Pro series has a different sized SIM card so if Cricket doesn't have that available, I won't be able to use the new phone. Does anyone have any info on that? TIA!
Ive been a Cricket customer since 2011, my phone’s paid off, & my account’s current.My new employer wants me on their AT&T business plan, & Ive been trying to unlock my phone from Cricket to AT&T for 3 weeks. When I go into the MyCricket app & click “Unlock Now”, I’m get an error code; “The server replied with a Registered Response with error code: 2”. Ive tried factory resetting my phone, Ive been to 2 different Cricket stores, Ive opened (4) case files, been to the AT&T store 4X, and spent over 14 hours either on the phone with 611, or on Cricket’s chat feature, & this is still not resolved.So, in frustration I bought a new phone & was told that AT&T can just port my # from Cricket to AT&T. This isn't working either, & now I'm in a constant loop of AT&T saying its an issue with Cricket not releasing my telephone #, while Cricket says its AT&T incorrectly entering in my Cricket account #, so they cancel the port request. (I confirmed
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.
