cricket agent enrolled me in the wrong plan
Today I first time joined cricket for a family plan. We clearly stated we wanted the $55/mo level plan and 5 lines. Agent said all was done correctly but when I got home and set up my online account I noticed I’m enrolled in the $60/mo plan and my next bill is substantially more than anticipated. I tried calling customer service but get nowhere. Help! This is not a good feeling on day one with a new company.
more money taken than what was supposed tobe
I have the affordable connectivity program on my phone. I changed my phone plan and I ran out of data as soon as I added a gig which is 10.00 which I had a balance of 58.67 now after I put ten dollars on my account its showing a balance of 8.00 this is wrong. How can we get it fixed. Phone number 312-282-3790 cricket wireless account.
wifi calling doesn't work on 2 phones
I have 4 lines with cricket, 2 are actual cricket phones and neither of them are able to use wifi calling. Keep getting the oops error message after we enter the address. I've contacted support several times and they have been unable to resolve. I went to the store and got a new Sim card for on of them and that didn't work either. More than a little frustrated at this point. Not sure what the problem is, we've checked the IMEI number, checked the address. Any other ideas?Thanks
I have a Samsung Galaxy Halo and since the pandemic broke into our lives your company added 15GB data and mobile hotspot to our lines. Thank you! Today, 8/13/2020, the hotspot was turned off. I liked it so much I decided to upgrade my plan to Unlimited and More which includes 15 GB mobile hotspot. After upgrading I noticed the hotspot still doesn't work. It worked before?? Your list of hotspot eligible devices doesn't list my device. Guess I don't understand why it would work before but not now.
Double First Ring
My gf is accusing me of being on the phone when she calls because the phone sometimes rings differently. She claims it has a long double first ring. Whatever that means. I googled it and told her it's just Cricket trying to find a tower to connect to but she doesn't believe me because Verizon does the double ring according to her. Is it true that there is a different ring callers hear if I'm on a call already? Is this a feature something I can change?
Cricket is a Joke
The list of issues I have with Cricket keep growing by the day. Cricket tells me that my BYOD phone is not compatible with the hotspot feature, yet every month since April 2020 I have used hotspot. I called on 10/08/2020 to add an extra 15GB hotspot to my line. The representative allowed me to pay $10.00 and then told me my phone isn't compatible, and the $10.00 would be a credit on my account. I then had to place a complaint with the BBB and after a month someone from corporate refunded the $10.00, however, in doing so they caused my account to be suspended. I used the $10.00 and only paid $100.00 toward my bill that was due on 10/22/2020. On 10/28/2020 Cricket stated they refunded the $10.00 to my account which my bank account only shows a reversal of $0.00. My phone lines were disconnected without notice during a hurricane. I was left with no service for hours until I called the automated phone line and activated bridge pay. I did not have to make any payment to activate bridge pay.
I just switched to Cricket. Got a free Alcatel Verso. I live where there is No Cell Service. I do have DSL and Wifi.I need to be able to text via wifi. I used to be able to do it on my Droid mini, with verizon. That phone broke, and they dont make them anymore. (I really liked it too)I dont want some "chat" "phone number". Any Ideas?Thanks
have problem with Cellular
Im also having signal issues with my phone now for the last 2 days. The phone will lose service randomly and I will only be able to make emergency calls and can send emails over wifi. I can't text or call and can't receive any return. I have tried power cycling phone, taking the sim card out and putting it back in and turning phone back on. What else can I try to get service?
Why am I not getting 5g
So, the cricket plan description says that phone plans have 5g included with the service but I've only ever had 4g, my phone is less than 2 years old and I have terrible service in the middle of town 1M of download and upload speed at best, why is that and why am I not getting 5g? I initially put this in conversation but it pinned me as more of a question/complaint.
Refer a friend
So 1. I have to watch a freaking video to even learn how to refer a friend? Why does your website not provide enough information on nearly every topic? Your video is slow. I can read words and learn quickly. Unless you make that difficult too. Have a video for those who want to watch it and WORDS for those who don’t. Even those who watch the video need the damn link. Just post the freaking link. Nice and big. Front and center.I have to download the app to refer a friend? That’s stupid and invasive. Do you know that some of us use computers? Yeah, we do. I have to email the link to myself to get it on my computer because of your choices. I don’t like a lot of apps on my phone, which is none of your business. I don’t like being forced into doing things I don’t want to do. I’m going to delete it again. Thank you for wasting my time. You build resentment in your customers with this kind of thing. Even in the app it’s unclear how to do it. Why do you make it so hard? Oh right, you don’t act
can i receive messages from mexico with an unlimited plan?
can i receive messages from mexico with an unlimited plan? Someone was supposed to contact me but they are in mexico and they were supposed to have gotten a mexico number. I haven't heard from them so I am concerned that maybe my service doesn't allow me to receive the messages. I am in the US. What can I do?
Cricket core plan on 4G router
Will cricket core plan work with an unlocked and compatible 4G router? I want to temporarily use the mobile data included in the plan. My phone’s broken and I can’t replace it as of this time. But I badly need to use mobile data / hotspot to connect to family and friends using my laptop. Anyone knowledgeable on this? I don’t want to upgrade to the Simply data plan that’s $55/month.It’s too expensive.
RCS Google Pixel
I currently have a Google device that is rolling out universal RCS support but do to cricket not having the pixel family in it's supported devices it's causing issues with my device. That being said are there plans to implement the pixel series into support devices or am I going to have to switch to another service? Coming from a Cricket Employee here.

FRAUDULENT PORT! No one will help!
I have been a Cricket Customer since 2016. We have 5 lines with them for myself, husband and 3 teenage daughters).On Monday, I lost service on my phone (SOS mode) and I thought it was something with my phone. I tried a lot of troubleshooting methods and it wasn’t until I got home that I realized my daughter’s phone also wasn’t working. I held for 35 minutes for customer service- only to be disconnected. When I tried calling back, customer service was closed for the day.On Tuesday, I spent about 3+ hours on the phone with customer service. They opened a ticket. About an hour later, my two other daughters lost service as well.This morning, I call again and am told that my husband’s phone is in process of being ported too and pretty soon there will be NO PHONES in our household. My husband uses his phone for work- this is an extremely distressing situation.SOMEONE AT CRICKET PLEASE HELP!I did not authorize this!
