Phones & Devices
I posted the other day about my girlfriends dream 5G which she has had for close to 2 months that has worked amazingly well, until the other day. Cricket came on here and marked the issue as resolved which it has not been resolved. We have PAID OUT MY POCKET for a new sim card when we were told that was the solution that we needed to do, Why I had to pay 10 bucks and some change for that, is beyond me. The problem we are having is the data connection will drop out every 5 mins or so and will not come back on unless you either turn the phone on and off, reset network settings, or airplane mode on and off and every time it comes back, the best we have got is 15 mins out of it. I have called the overseas tech support they use and have to go through the same damn troubleshooting steps every damn time only for them to think they got it fixed when it is still acting up soon as the call is over, I was told to submit a warranty claim on it which I followed the link in my last post and when I e
I have a Samsung Z fold 2. I have not been able to call out or receive calls for 3 days now. I've had Samsung look at the phone and they say it is a carrier issue. I've put a friend's SIM card in my unlocked phone, and hers works in my phone. Cricket can't seem to give me answers. Anyone else??
This is by far the WORST phone I've ever had. No way to turn off notifications on home screen. Drops call after call after call. The volume is constantly going up and down on it's own. I'm disabled and absolutely can not count on this p.o s. Phone. No wonder it was free. My husband had to return his piece of crap Dream the 2nd day. Going to talk to the Disabled Veterans about your useless phone.
I have an unlimited data plan and I have the LG stylo 6. Everything works fine when I'm connected to my home wifi, but the minute I try to open up a game like Jurassic World Alive or Pokemon 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?
I was assaulted and hospitalized at the end of November 2021. The man who assaulted my evaded the police and hasn't been caught yet. He has been harassing me and hacking my phone every day since th assault threatening to get my family or me if I choose not to talk to him. Par change my phone number please?!,!?
So, I spoke to Samsung today and they assured me that my note 8 would be able to function on the network as long as it has the latest software upgrade. This was also explained to me by a cricket employee at the local store.Can someone from Cricket answer the question... why is this phone not listed as a compatible device? It is perfectly capable of operating on the network as a 4g device. Is there something that can be done to correct the oversight?
Hi,I got my Google Pixel 6a phone today, and was super excited to try it out, but after inserting my cricket wireless sim, I got an SMS saying this model is not supported by Cricket.I got on a call with customer service, and provided them with my IMEI number, but all they said is they do not support this model.Does anyone know if cricket will support Pixel 6a or how long does it usually take Cricket to support a new device? I need to decide if I should be returning my Pixel 6a :(
I have 4 lines on my plan. We all have the same phones. Both mine and my daughter's lines won't make or receive phone calls. We can text and use data. I have tried switching my sim card to another phone which is also on my plan that is working. That phone would not work with my sim card in it. I have tried driving to another spot closer into town still won't work. I tried turning my phone off and on that didn't work. I tried taking my sim card out that didn't work. I tried clearing the cache that didn't work. I tried to call can't make any calls. I tried to chat held on the chat for over 20 minutes. Then got disconnected. Now they are closed. They are not even open for technical support. This is ridiculous. My bill is paid up. I checked my software is up to date. Here I've been without phones for a day now. This is the biggest crock of#$it ever.
I got the free Dream 5G yesterday. It's fast, looks sharp, but after using it for a day I've noticed it will randomly restart itself. I cannot figure it out. I have downloaded all kinds of memory and system stability testing programs to try and find corrupt ram. But they all check out. Is Android system WebView the culprit again?? It will be fine for hours and hours. Then I'll be laying down and hear it just randomly restart and check the system uptime, sure enough...yeah crashed. It has the latest update. I don't wanna return the phone, but I'm about to because it's displaying symptoms of corrupt ram or graphics corruption. I'm starting to see why they're giving them away for free. I reset the phone to see if I could make it stable with just 1 Google account. Or maybe the transfer from the previous device didn't go smooth. So I reset it. *The only clue I have is some kind of omapc message after the reboot." It's a nice phone, but if it doesn't sort it out or someone can
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 just transferred my ATT Samsung Galaxy S7 to Cricket yesterday. Today I started seeing pop up ads randomly covering over whatever I was doing. It's terribly annoying.I checked some of the other questions and opted out at liveramp, I don't use Chrome as a browser, I couldn't find the "My Cricket" file that others suggested disabling (even after I asked it to show me system files too) and I didn't load any new apps since I switched to Cricket. It must be something to do with the new Cricket sim card. It's the only thing that has changed.Help please. This is an untenable situation - the ads are that bad!Kindra
My husband's GS6 keeps boot looping, may stay up for a minute or two but usually doesn't get fully past the Samsung logo on startup. The day this started he showed me that the phone had a blue screen with Downloading on it. He did not initiate this. I later found out that it's a special screen you have to press 3 keys to get to! He didn't do that! So maybe it was a bad update that came OTA?? Anyhow, have tried to wipe cache, have tried factory reset, and no help.I tried to connect to Smart Switch but it said something like device incompatible. Not sure if firmware problem, or hardware problem, or ?Any suggestions? He had to go ahead and get a new phone but it would be nice if we could get this working as a backup.
I just spoke with customer service representative who said they absolutely will not give the new Samsung for 349.00 to current customers..only New customers..thats ridiculous.! I'm done cricket.. I've been with your company for 10 years or more..Im disgusted you would give someone who may or may not stay with you a discount but loyal customers you wont..hi T-Mobile, hi any other company..ill pay 800.00 for new Samsung now but not w You!..im done with this company! this customer is right...always! Bye
Couple days ago I switched over to Cricket and brought my own device (iPhone 6s) and transferred my phone number.I activated the SIM card and I'm able to make phone calls, data and single text messages, but I'm not able to send Group Texts. I called the hotline and walked through the usual steps, OS upgrade, Network Reset, re-boot. At the end of the day they couldn't help. With the SIM Card from Cricket I'm not able to see the Carrier Network Configuration option under Settings/Cellular/Carrier Services to update the APN settings manually. They actually should automatically update with the SIM card, but since Group Message are not working I suspect an incorrect configuration. Any help is appreciated
Hi, I am trying to preorder the iPhone XR on the Apple website, but it is asking me to choose a carrier (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon). There is no option for an unlocked version. If I choose the AT&T version, will I still be able to use it with Cricket since they use the same network?
I purchased a Cricket compatible and supposedly unlocked Samsung Galaxy s7 from a well-reviewed user on Ebay. I purchased a Cricket universal sim card from Best Buy and went through the activation process here. I wanted to keep my previous phone number, and the new phone shows up under my number on the My Account page. I got a notification saying changes had been made to my account on my old phone as well.The problem is that I keep getting an invalid sim card notification on the new device. I've tried a factory reset and I can't insert my old phone's sim card into the new one as they are different sizes (micro in old, nano in new) to see if the phone is indeed unlocked. How can I get this thing activated and working?
