Phones & Devices
After almost 3 months of being unable to use phone indoors, no signal, I requested new phone under the 2 year warranty included with the phone. I purchased 2 of these phones at the same time and both have connection issues. i cannot send the 2nd phone in until the 1st phone issue is resolved, so continue to go outdoors to use phone. I received the replacement next day via UPS. Within a day I began having problems, would shut down and restart, would freeze and I would turn airplane mode on/off. But then it shut down with message the data may be corrupted and if a factory reset is done my data may be lost. Called for warranty service again, I had it only a week, learned they sent a remanufactured phone, i.e.., a phone that had already been replaced due to issues, but I was assured it had been repaired and tested. Not! I again sent this phone back and am awaiting my next remanufactured phone. I have no reason to think this is going to go well. I feel I should be provided a NEW phon
I’m not a customer yet. Can I get a sim card from cricketWireless and purchase onlythe simply data plan? I just want to use data co’z I don’t want to give up on my calland text plan from my current carrier. Also, can I use the sim card (with simply data plan) on my unlocked smartphone?
We recently received a new Google Pixel 6. We bought the unlocked version that is supposed to work on all carriers. Switched the sim over and the phone wouldn’t work, furthermore the number showed up as suspended on myCricket.We switched it back into the original phone and after a while the suspension was lifted. The Cricket website lists the Pixel 6 as supported, however when we plug the imei number it says the device is not supported.Anyone have an idea what is happening? Any suggestions?Thanks!

Hi! I am hoping to confirm if my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will continue to work on Cricket’s network after the 3G shutdown. I did receive the text message from Cricket regarding the shutdown. However, I’ve been checking the Cricket site (specifically the “Device Compatibility” lookup) and I received the “Yay, your Samsung SM-G925A is compatible!” message when plugging in my phone’s IMEI ID. This leads me to believe that my phone will work after the shutdown. I should note that I checked other carriers and it appears that my phone will work on their platforms after the shutdown. For example, AT&T is indicating that my phone will continue to be supported on their network after the decom. This furthers my belief that my phone should continue to work as Cricket uses AT&T’s network for service. Thanks for any confirmation regarding if my phone (Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge) will continue to work on Cricket’s network after the 3G shutdown. My phone works perfectly and I really have no desire
New Moto G Stylus 5g (2022) will not connect my mobile hotspot to brand new Vizio tv or laptop. Upgraded my phone from 3g and now it will not connect at all. My 3g phone connected flawlessly. I don't understand why this new upgraded phone will not. Made sure of the coverage area while in store. Have tried absolutely everything. System is up to date. It's not my devices. I do live in a rural area, I get 1-2 bars, I can get online, play online games etc etc, call, text altho reception is slow & I do get dropped calls at times, I've always been able to use hotspot on my tv to watch movies, videos & play games. Now my hotspot will not connect at all to my laptop, it keeps saying bad password even though it's correct. Connects for about 1 second to tv & then nothing. DHCP is enabled. Have changed AP bands, 2.4GHz, 5.0GHz which is preferred, tried with and without a password. I will be so happy & appreciative with ANY suggestions & ecstatic if my issue is resolved! 🤸Tha
I have a Galaxy S10e, and per Cricket’s page, it is compatible after the 3G sunset. But two days ago it stopped making/receiving calls. Everything else works; text, data, GPS, WiFi, etc, but it won’t make calls, and when someone calls me it goes straight to voicemail, which I can’t get either because I can’t make a call. I never reecived notice from Cricket that I would have an issue with the 3G sunset, which is supported by the fact that my phone is compatible per Cricket’s “3G Sunset” page. I talked w/ Tech Support and after a half-hour, they were able change my LTE to H+ And I was able to make calls, but that only lasted an hour. As soon as I drove away from my house my phone reverted to LTE and I couldn’t make any calls. I stopped at the Burien Cricket store and the lady there told me that my phone isn’t compatible and that Cricket is offering free comparable phones for people affected by the 3G sunset, though then she told me I’m not eligible for some reason. She seemed to
Over 2 weeks ago I went to Cricket app to get unlock codes.never got them. Last week got a case opened, said it would be 3-5 business days. So checked today and was told it will be another 3-5 business days. We don't have phone service now as our cricket expired and we had paid for another carrier, but can't use their sim cards. We meet all criteria and have been paying customers for 10 yrs. What is the problem...by law we were to get our codes within 2 business days
Hi guys, I just upgraded from Samsung A73 to Samsung S21+. My only concern is that the notifications and ringtones I am using on the Samsung A73 are not on the Samsung 21+. Specifically the "Rise" sound and the "Space Funk" ringtone.I used File Commander and browsed around but didn't find any audio storage location. I know I can just download their MP3s but then when I use YT Music and play music from my phone those stupid tones show up and it's really annoying.Basically what I'm looking to do is go into the system folder where the sounds are kept on the S9+ and move them to the same folder on the mt S10+. Is this possible?Thank you.
Hi All, Started having this strange issue where I can’t stream any music. A reboot of my iPhone X seems to fix it but only temporary. Within several hours the issue will happen again. Internet seems to be somewhat ok when I have this issue. I am seeing around 50 Mbps, web browser seems to also be impacted.TuneIn takes about 45 seconds to load. After the reboot it loads within 5-10 seconds. I also noticed my bars were at two prior to the reboot and are at 4 after. Can someone let me know what the issue might be? Thanks
Don't know where else to put this so posting it here...I hate logging in to Cricket's iOS app. My dinky local credit union's banking app can use the iPhone's Touch ID so I can log in to my account by simply placing my thumb over the Home button. Why can't Cricket's app also access the iPhone's Touch ID?As is, the app simply encourages me to use a simple password so I don't have to keep retyping it and retyping it and retyping it. It's a really old-school way of doing things.AT LAST, that is off my chest :) Every time I have to use the app, I just grind my teeth.
I bought a cricket phone today at a yard sale. Went to Wal-Mart after calling straight talk and got a sims card cost me $54. Accessed my online account with straight talk activated the ZTE switched my number over inserted the Sims card and as soon as my old phone got turned off a message popped up on the ZTE saying enter unlock code. Even though you all have a legal obligation to give me the access code noone will help me. I think its wrong I paid $75 for the phone then $54 for the Sims card and I was told oh well. Your all custoner service ppl at stores and on the phone SUCK. A very dissatisfied person
I have an S5 with a Cricket account. I would like to change to using an S8 while keeping my Cricket number.Since it is a used phone, I cannot upgrade. So, I saw I could request a new sim card for a different device on my current line.If I go this route and order a new sim card for the S8 (keeping my number) does that make the S8 the device now for the line? What happens to my S5?Can I then use my S5 to add an additional line and order a new sim card for the S5 as a new number? Or will it still be linked to the original account and not be available to use as a new line?
