Trouble with iphone update?
Since the last update my autocorrect feature has been acting up, finishing words automatically with the first part of the word still attached.https://xender.vip/ 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.https://nox.tips/
I just bought the LG Stylo 6 which is an awesome phone for $276 or $299 if you count the fact they charged my debit card the next day $8 for Cricket Protect and $25 for activation for total of $33. I thought activation was free on online orders. Anywho, they sent me a shipping label that has a RA number that's different from the RA number i was told to write down. So, does this mean the label RA number is for the return and the one I was told to write down and tape to the return box is for the replacement phone? The phone I received from online order has a smash back cover with is made of glass. So, does this mean I am def getting a replacement and if so are they shipping it now or do I have to wait until my phone is received back to their warehouse? If i wont receive it until I ship mine how long will it be before I get my new phone? I really need my phone asap as it's used for my business. Is getting my phone first an option? Im drooping it off at UPS tomorrow morning 9am sharp. Do I
iPhone XS stuck at bootup Apple logo
Hello!Recently my iPhone XS was giving me full of storage notifications. I deleted pretty much half of my apps and about 400 photos and videos, but it literally did not change anything. The phone was still full and giving me notifications. I thought it was a small glitch or whatever, but the next day I wake up and my phone gave me the notification that I cannot use the internet, make phone calls, or anything on it because of the full sthappymodorage. I did the most stupid thing ever and did a reset on it to get it back and see if the problem might fix itself. Now the iPhone only starts and resets the bootup process. I assume it cannot b10.0.0.0.1oot up because it's too full. I haven't put it in recovery mode be192.168.1.254cause I read that it then 100% erases your data. Is that so? Is there any chance I could get my phone back with no data loss or is it already gone at this point? The phone is still under warranty, but the store said Apple will delete all the data and reset it or give
They Locked My Phone, and WONT Unlock it!
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
Voicemail Greeting always going to Default
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??
Return policy doesn't cut it
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.
Phone or network problems?
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

Poor Quality Texted Videos
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!!
A71 camera isn't great?
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.

Phone Battery Drainage?
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.
Samsung S10+ FM WhatsApp issue.
I wonder if anyone else is finding that WhatsApp isn't functioning like it should on their Samsung S10+. My main issue is when I try to search for a GIF the screen goes funny and the keyboard doesn't pop up to type the search. Also, when sending an attachment, your give the option to send it quickly to your most recent/popular recipients but when you tap one of them it just loads all the other send options.
G7 Supra Wifi issues
We have a pair of G7 Supra phones. Pretty much everything works on 4G, but a bunch of apps cannot connect on Wifi. Examples: Yahoo Mail App, Disney+ App, Discord, Amazon... many.Turn off Wifi... works fine.Same apps work on Wifi on other devices (older Moto Turbo 2 and other devices since retired).Anyone else have a similar issue?Right now I have to keep old phones around to cast Disney+ to the Chromecast.
Does the iPhone 11 technically support HDR and considered an HDR display?
I just got the the 11 Pro Max and my brother just received the 11 and upon further inspection on both the Netflix and YouTube app I see an option for HDR on the 11 and I remember seeing that option on the XR as well. I’m not too familiar of what class of display passes HDR certification on the low end but if it’s not exactly “HDR” (most reviewer say it’s not HDR) can’t that be called for false advertisement? Looking at both displays watching the same video it’s actually hard seeing a overall sharpness and color differences on both displays at a normal viewing distance. In my opinion Apple did an amazing job on the 1routerlogin1’s display even at a sub-1080p resolution and an LCD display and I wouldn’t mind watching content and using it on a daily. The only time I can see a significant difference is in black levels. Obviously because the use of LCD on the 11, you can’t really get those inky black levels of OLED. What I’m trying to understand is if HDR cares less of resolution than overa
Can you switch sim to another phone on Cricket after activating?
Just wondering if a sim can be changed to a different phone after it is activated without having to contact Cricket. Here is the deal. I am wanting to start a Cricket more family plan, get a free/cheap Cricket phone, have it activated, then put sim in my unlocked Note 9 (SG-N960U) so I can use hotspot occasionally on it instead of having to call Cricket if I want to switch sim to another phone.AppvnSHAREit
No Service for 4 Days
I’m unsure if it’s the network or my phone that’s the issue, but my phone’s battery died about 4 days ago. Upon restart, I had no signal, even though I was out and about driving with my dad. I’ve been at home since then, where I’ve always had a good signalhttps://jpgtopdf.onl/, but without WiFi I have no service at all.https://1921681001.id/Is there something I can do to try to fix it? I’ve tried restarts and toggling my cellular data off and on to no avail.https://19216811.cam/
How do I use a ringtone song on Iphone 8?
I hate to admit how upset I am about iphone 8 not having an simple way to use a song as a ringtone or an alarm. I know it is just a ring tone, but I don't like something that's put on me. I don't really want to use canned ring tones, or buy ringtones from Apple. I want to use the same tunes / songs I used for years. Can anybody help? So irritated and can't help but wonder what kind of cheap money grubbing attempt is up to Apple to disable or delete this functionality.I want to use this song as a ringtone: https://kostenloseklingeltone.mobi/samsung-standard-11573/
Right now I have an old Stylo 2 phone and starting to need an upgrade. I have been a member of Cricket for a while and know that we don't really get perks of free decent upgrades. So is it better to buy from cricket or shop around and find a better deal on a phone that will work with cricket?
