Phones & Devices
I keep seeing rumors about the iPhone “13” doing away with the charging port and every journalist is raising the question of how to recover the phone in the event of a software failure. Has anyone asked about how Car Play will work? In my truck, currently the phone has to be tethered to use Car Play and I know of no option to use it wirelessly.
Hi, Galaxy S20+After a lot of looking around, I'm not finding what i'm looking for with wallpaper, so I thought i'd ask.Ideally, I would like live wallpaper that mirrors the weather outside (rain, snow, storm, etc), and the light (dark at night, light during the day). I want this over some kind of landscape, or over a photo of my own, or something similar; but not over a cartoon or anything like that. TBF, I only tried the free versions, not the paid versions. So I'm asking if anyone knows a free app that does this.If that doesn't exist, my second option is to have a picture from my gallery, but I want it to scroll when I switch between home screens. I found no settings to allow this, and I only found one app that sort of does this, but it scrolls underneath the home screens when you drag your finger, which makes it look terrible.Anyone have any good suggestions for either of these? Ideally free? Thanks.
Your destination is not supported - texting error?
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?
MagSafe charging or Lightning charging
What's the best way of charging between the two to make your battery last longer?I bought an iPhone 12 this January coming from a 7 and I was wondering if, aside from charging speed, there is an actual long term benefit in using one charging method instead of the other.I read about people saying magsafe should make it last longer because it operates at 15W instead of the lighting charging at 20W, but it may also decrease the battery life because wireless charging produces quite some heat which causes batteries to degrade faster.I don't really care about "fast charging" so I was considering buying a magsafe charger but only if it proves to be actually helpful.

When I get a voicemail , sometimes it will say the voicemail is from a friend but when I click on the VM to hear it , it will be from the doctors office, not the person it is showing that suposably left the message. It does this a lot so I'm not sure what's going on and it does this a lot. Can someone tell me how to fix this issue? My phone is a lg stylo 4.
How to extend ring tome time
I just recently bought a new phone from Cricket but notice that the ring time on this phone is less than on my previous phone which was on a different carrier. I looked up online how to increase ring tone time but when I tried it on my phone it said that call forwarding on my phone is disabled. Apparently in order to increase ring tone time you have to dial call forwarding which involves dialing **61* and some other numbers. But I am unable to do that on this phone,. So I was wondering how I may extend the ring tone time on my phone as most of the time when it rings it hangs up before I am able to get to it.
S20 FE exynos battery life?
I am using a s20FE( EXYNOS). I bought it used from a person. The phone is 4 months old. The battery life is simply unbearable. I am getting 4 to 5 hours of screen on time. Even if i turn off 120hz, i struggle to get anything above. The exynos is simply not good and it heats up while using camera. Simply disappointed.
Galaxy A21 Sim Tray
I recently bought an A21 (SM-A215W) for my mother, but she has lost the Sim tray out of the phone. I have tried Amazon, Ebay and even Samsung Canada themselves, but no one seems to have access to a Sim tray for this specific phone. I have found plenty for an A21s, but I've tried them and they don't fit. Samsung directed me to a third party repair centre, and they simply said they don't cover that phone. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The s7 edge was a beautiful phone
I remember upgrading from my s5 to an s7 edge and oh boy it was the most beautiful phone at that time. I still think its one of the better looking phones even to date. The colors they used and the way the glass shined, the double edged screen (even though it was a nuisance sometimes) it was such a good looking phone.What do you think is the best looking galaxy phone ever ?
Who here keeps 5G turned on?
So I got a iPhone 12 Pro Max this week, and for the first 3 days I left 5G turned on... but then I’ve turned it off.At home I would get 2-4 bars of 5G. And at work about 1-2 bars of 5G.But even when at full speed thinks like music, youtube etc, I don’t notice it any faster than on 5G.So question... who has 5G turned on and who has 4G only?
iPhone 12 not receiving texts from Android Pixel 3 with RCS enabled
My daughter switched from a Galaxy S9 to an iPhone 12. She is no longer receiving texts from me (Pixel 3 also on Cricket). I wondered if it had something to do with RCS (called Chat Features in Google Messages). So, I turned it off on my phone and, sure enough, my text went through.I have had RCS enabled for quite some time and have not had issues sending to other iPhone users.That makes me think it’s something specific to iPhone 12. We did work with a Cricket customer service rep who had us update to the latest iOS and he also “refreshed the network” and had us restart the phone. Nothing has worked so far.Is anyone else having similar issues or has someone solved this problem?
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?
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.
icon 2 drops everything
I am on my second icon 2 phone after replacing the original under the warranty. The original dropped my call with roadside service 5 times while stranded on the side of the road with my child. This was the biggest of many issues and unacceptable.I was hopeful it was just that one....it is not. Terrible phone. Drops calls. Doesn't send texts. Texts not received. Apps shut off. And on and on.Funny that you can no longer leave a review on cricket for this model, and every response from them is that there is a one year warranty. Your warranty is useless when it is the model that is the problem. You need to stop selling this junk phone cricket!
