Phones & Devices
BEWARE- BEWARE-BEWARE-I love Cricket- left once and came back. I pay for 7 (SEVEN) lines!! I am very frustrated right now, I have never turned anyone into the BBB but I am thinking on this.My phone broke, placed my SIMS in another phone. My phoneline was suspend for “not being 5G”. Okay, go to local store- “we are waiving upgrade fee”, okay. We leave the store. My son gets a call from same store stating that my account is eligible for a free phone upgrade, come back and pick out the phone, will only need to pay taxes.Myself and my son go to the store, my son (who had removed his SIMS card the day before) picks out and obtains his 5g phone.I pick out phones for the other 2 lines that need upgraded. They are not ringing up as free, so I choose the other one. They have to order them, okay. Still no phone service. They will call “ tomorrow or next day, we will call you when they come in”.Four days later, I call to check. Oh yeah, they are here, they came in yesterday, sorry nobody called
I just couldn’t believe my Note 9 and wife’s S9 aren’t on the whitelist? So we have to switch to another carrier?Am I understanding it wrong?The phones are still 100% perfect, nothing is wrong and is capable of 4G. in order to continue using Cricket, we have to buy two new phones?We started with Cricket because we did not like being locked and now Cricket want to enforce the arbitrary and ridiculous phone change? I am not seeing we can buy two new phones before Feb. Sad we have been with Cricket for so long.
unihertz jelly pro not listed as compatible with 5G--will be changing service if cricket doesn't quit the cash grab
Keep getting texts/interrupted calls that my phone doesn’t support 5G/4G LTE. It clearly does (as multiple other services have confirmed). Since Cricket’s whitelist is nothing more than a cash-grab attempt to force customers to buy phones they don’t need, will be switching services unless tech support actually starts acting like tech support and adding ALL phones that qualify to their whitelist rather than lying about a phone’s capabilities.
I like hassle free. That’s what brought me to Cricket in the first place. I enrolled, paid, got a discount for autopay, and forgot about it for like.. 10 years or something.See, from my perspective, I’m one of the most valuable customer types. Yes, take my money. I may get a cheaper deal else where but so long as I don’t have to think about it and it doesn’t give me trouble I’m fine to chill here.But then Cricket randomly decides to discontinue supporting my phone for no apparent reason?That’s not chill.So now I’ll go elsewhere and pay less because I will not let my phone carrier dictate which phone I can use. Thank you and goodnight.
I chatted online with an agent before I bought the iPhone SE promotion. Now cricket told me that the information from that agent was wrong. There is nothing they can do. I will need to continue with $60 plan for 3 months before I can change it. The agent I talked to before purchasing the order clearly told me that I can change my plan anytime after activae my phone. Cricket should honor the information from the agent. Attached is the relevant chat history a few hours before bought the iPhone SE (Oct 24th) on Cricket, I would be happy to forward the whole transcript if needed: USER: I will have to subscribe for the $60 plan to be eligible, or could I change my plan after the first month AGENT (Ron): While placing the order you need to select $60 UL more AGENT (Ron): For 3 month to get the device at $0.00 AGENT (Ron): However as soon as your services are active you can contact us we can change the rate plan accordingly USER: okay I see, so I have to subscribe the $60 when I place the o
Today I changed my $55 core plan to $60 plan which includes 5G and internet speeds higher than 8mbps.for some reason I can’t make 5G work on my phone. I have an iPhone 12 Pro Max which I bought unlocked at apple.I know my plan has changed because i can see higher internet speeds and hotspot enabled. But I can’t choose 5G as preferred network. All the options I have is 4G and LTE. I’ve followed directions from different agents at the tech support with no success. I reset network settings several times, I updated iOS to the latest version, they made some changes on the line as well, I gave them IMEI number, and also installed my SIM card in another iPhone 12 Pro Max unlocked but Still no 5G, only LTEany help would be appreciated
I bought a brand new phone with my money from working yesterday, good quality, was a great deal for the features. Gets it set up, and gets a text that it’s not compatible, ends up calling Cricket and the issue gets sorted. Later I decided to update my phone, IMEI gets reset and now my phone is back to being incompatible. Note that I am not rich and I’m happy I got to pay for the phone I did, but now I had to wait a day for Cricket to be open to call them just for them to deactivate my phone number. They mentioned during both calls that my phone was 3G, despite it being a 4G phone and kept talking about some “HD Voice” feature. I barely make phone calls, why is this even a thing. So now I have to return the phone because it’s under my families plan, which by the way all their phones are going to be deactivated in February so expect us to leave Cricket soon. By the way I believe this is the list of phones that are compatible? https://www.cricketwireless.com/support/great-big-network/byod
Even though I replaced a new sim card. Changed the APN, restart my phone, airplane mode, reset network, etl...... Still no 5g. Can anybody help? Thank you!!!!Edit: I'm sure there is 5G coverage in my area because my wife's Galaxy s21 ultra got the 5g all the time.
When I try to log back in I keep getting a “error occurred during iMessage activation” I know it’s not my iPhone for sure because I’ve brought it from another company to Cricket. Only the phone number changed. Is anyone else experiencing this? Could it also be the person who previously had this cricket phone number? Because I am still getting a lot of texts and FaceTimes asking for them. Maybe they are trying to claim the number still? I don’t know. Any help is appreciated. I have already tried resetting my network settings, updated to the latest iOS update, turned phone off and on, turned on airplane mode temporarily, turned off cellular data, I’ve tried everything. Taking it to Apple seems useless as I know for sure it’s not my phone. I’ve never had this issue before with the previous company and phone number.
I have had my Moto G7 Supra for 2 years. On 30 Oct 2021 my phone started having intermittent service. Mobile Data has "No SIM Card." I have turned the phone off and on. I have checked the SIM card position. I have wiped the SIM to remove any dust. I stopped at the local retail store. The employee told me it is probably a setting or new app. I have not changed any settings or downloaded any apps in the 3 weeks. It costs $10 to buy a new SIM card. The employee said that probably won't help. After reading comments, I have no idea what else to do. I cannot make or receive calls or texts.
I have had 2 major issues with this new phone.Firstly, often I receive a message that says my phone is not NFC compatible. I don't know what it means or how to find and fix it.Second, 98% of the time when I click a link to visit a site I get an error message about https issues
Hi, I have a Moto G Power, and I cannot figure out how to make it install my Software and app updates using my Data. I don't have easy access to Wi-Fi and nothing has been updated in a few months. I'm getting worried, I know there's no faster way to ruin a phone than let the apps get to far behind. It just will not give me the data option. Someone told me I have to factory reset my phone to switch it to data. I'll do it if I have too, but it's such a pain, I want to make sure there's no other way first. Thanks in advance.
