Phones & Devices
What is something you wish Android could do that iPhone can?
Both OS's are good in their own right, I always remain objective when comparing the two.One thing I wish android has that iPhone does so well is compatibility... iPhones paired with other apple devices just work instantly and without the need of setting anything up, its almost magic (cliché sounding I'm aware). Also apps.. they run better on iOS, are released first on iOS, and get updates quicker.I guess also a messaging app like iMessage. Hangouts kinda does the job but not really at the same time.Edit: I asked the iPhone sub the same type of question, let's see what they say lol.
Phone Reception Problems | Cricket Wireless Forum
Since March 11th Cricket/AT&T have had a tower or multiple tower damages of some sort. But only today did I find out that much. Phone calls in or out were not possible. WiFi and texting were and are fine. Ping is fine. Unable to talk to anyone online. The local Cricket store I visited tried to convince me my phone was to blame. I bought an unlocked brand new phone on Amazon after being told the Windows phone I had been using for years had no trade in value even though the rep on the phone line said it would if I upgraded to a Motorola. Anyway after a while the clerk in the store sold me a sim card for $10.81. it worked for an hour. I discovered after coming here that Crickes Facebook page could help. It worked. Sort of. At least I found out it was a company technical issue with a tower or many that was at play. Now why for freaking out load could Crickets minion clerk not reveal that? I was after all the only other person in the store. As you can see, there are multiple service opp
Nokia 3.1 plus blacklisted
the Nokia 3. 1 plus has been blacklisted by the software companies and they are stating but they will offer no support for Nokia at all due to a breach with the Android contract by enforcing phone encryption software Developers will make no new software or games for Nokia platforms because of the violation of the Android contract and Cricket Wireless is selling Nokia phones do not buy Nokia phones
My husband has the lg stylo 3. We just got it a couple of months ago. A couple of days ago he woke up to find that it had entered "fastboot mode". We have literally tried everything from hard reset to connecting to a pc to try and bypass the system that way. Nothing is working. Has anyone else had this issue with the stylo 3? Please help. I really don't want to have to buy a new phone after only having this one a couple of months.
Does Cricket plan on carrying the s10e, s10 or s10+? You've always had such a small selection of phones to choose from. How do you plan on retaining customers with your selection of devices, relatively high service prices compared to the competition and not to mention the AWFUL phone payment service through progressive leasing. Not seeing much reason to stay a customer.
For the last 24 hours the service from cricket wireless has been snail slow. My plan is unlimited data and has been fast since I've had it. Now me and other cricket users are having such low speeds that it's unreadable. None of us are over our data limit and never had a problem during high traffic. What's going on and are you guys fixing it?
I added a new line and was told I HAD TO GET the phone even though I planned on using my apple phone with the account, I got a cheap one and IN THE STORE , the employee took the SIM card out and put it in my apple phone I planned on using. I told them eventually I want to use this phone but in an ATT account. They said hold the phone for 6 months and then you can use it. It’s been over the 6 months, I call to have them unlock the phone from cricket and they said no you had to use it for 6 months. The employee did not say that, they switched the SIM card to the apple phone and said just keep it and when you ready we will unlock it. Such liars!! All I want is to use the dang cricket phone!! It’s mine I paid for it, the line was in use and paid for monthly, unlock my phone!!!!
Samsung S9+ Android P Update
My wife has the Samsung S9 and she just got the Android P update last night. My son has the Samsung S9+ but hasn't received the update even though it's out. We went into settings and did the manual search but it says it's up to date. When will the S9+ get the Android P update?

2 Questions, one about notifications and other about Wifi calling
I own a One Plus 5T on Android 9 and I have 2 questions and figured I own one thread for me to ask, rather then multiple threads. 1) Is is possible to change the notification sound on the Visual Voicemail app ?? Not when you go into the phone settings, but the app itself, I did change the notification from the phone settings but it did not work, I assume it only changes the sound for the call in voice message. 2) I know and have read that WiFi calling is only available on certain Cricket owned devices. Is there a work around to be able to get it to work on other Android devices without Rooting ?? I don't get why Cricket would not want to allow this to work on all devices, it would lighten their overload on their system, seems to me. Thanks in advance
Emails not downloading
My phone recently underwent an update & since then when trying to open an email no content downloads. I've tried going into settings and made sure everything is turned on that should be and I've checked my internet connection. I've also tried removing and re-adding my email account & this doesn't seem to work, even after re-starting my phone. Additionally, I'm not able to send emails; they come back as deliverable.
