Phones & Devices
I noticed today that my phone has am app downloaded that I never authorized: Pluto TV. Google has a thread about this and the majority of the people from 2 days ago are customers with the same complaint. Why is this app able to do this Cricket without my permission but with your company's on my behalf?
So I have an unlimited data plan and I have the LG stylo 5. Everything works fine when I'm connected to my home wifi, but the minute I try to open up a game like wizards unite or Pokémon go while I'm outside, they take ages to load and don't work properly. Does this happen to anyone else? Or does anyone know what I can do to fix it?
We are new to Cricket service since August, have noticed recently I am unable to send any text messages from within the default message app on my Samsung S7 to a group of people, any that contains pictures or any gifs. I've tried doing all the things I found on the internet including restarting my phone, resetting the APN settings and restarting my phone, and I checked the message center number which is 312-314-9810. It spins and spins for about 5 minutes, then errors out and says Message not sent. Can someone please help with this? Very frustrating. I had AT&T prior and did not have this problem at all. I have unlimited data on this phone and this seems to have become a problem in the last month that I've noriced.
Hi, I don't have my phone on all the time but today when I turned it on, it said I had a voice mail (which I couldn't hear) so I checked my call logs and was surprised two people had called but it was 6 days ago that they called and apparently one left me a voicemail. Is this normal for this kind of delay and what can I do about it?Thank you, Martha
I'm buying a Tab S6 at the end of the month and I'm going to use DeX as a laptop replacement. Now I'm a console gamer, but I play only a hand full of PC games on my laptop. Nihon Falcom games, Trails in the Sky trilogy, Xanadu Next, Ys, etc. They aren't graphic powerhouses, you can run them on anything, they're mostly updated PSP titles. They are on Steam. My question is, can I play them using DeX or is it still not possible?
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?
I am so incredibly dissatisfied with this service that I will probably be switching back to Verizon. I have full signal...much better than we EVER had with Verizon, but guess what? I cant even make a phone call or receive one. Customer service cant help and when I called them they said multiple things from it's an issue with my phone all the way to they'll put in a ticket with their tech support...but guess what? Tech support doesn't work weekends!!! ...and nobody ever called me back either when they were "back." I have even been back to the store twice and they finally changed my sim card. What the hell? I want a refund or something. Why should I pay for the service when I cant even use it?? Someone help me please! My phone is so incredibly important. I'm a nursing manager for a home health agency and am on call 24/7.
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
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!
I just got my new cricket wireless phone, LG Stylo 3, 2 days ago and am having all kinds of problems. This post will just be about email. I tried setting up my email account and it went through but most of the time I can't send anything out and only a few emails come in. So I created a yahoo account just for trying on the LG Stylo 3 and I can log in fine with both my computers and my iPad but when trying to set it up on the LG Stylo 3, it kept telling me my sign in information was incorrect. I tried a good 10 times and each time the information was correct. I had copied and pasted the information and printed it out. Am I having major software problems? Is anyone else having problems creating email accounts? I can't move my apps around either or create folders. Please advise. Thank you, Martha
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
Hello friends! I amn't US citizen. I live in Europe. I bought iPhone 7 plus on eBay from re-seller , not from original owner. It's a cricket phone. I need to unlock it for any GSM network. Cricket support tell me that i need wireless number or account information for unlocking. I haven't any info. There is one another option; Operator says that: The person who is an existing Cricket customer can authenticate the account with his account credentials then with the help of your phone's imei number, the unlock code can be checked.The only option left for you is to contact someone in the U.S. who is a Cricket customer and he will be able to authenticate the account with his account credentials.Once the account is authenticated, we can check the unlock code with the help of your phone's imei number.Can anyone help me to do that? Please read and help me! I really need it!
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.
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 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
