I was lied to
On Oct 14 I paid my bill in store $139 . On Oct 15 I added a line and changed my plan to the 4 lines for 100. I paid another 45 to start thithis plan etc. On Oct 16 I called because I got to thinking i should have a $39 credit at least. I was told no $18.99 was my credit, initially. Then the rep "researched my account" I was told I was being charged $20 for hotspot on two lines. He could remove that and credit the $20 back. I told him yes because I didn't even know I had hotspot and do not need it as I have wifi at home. He removed and said my bill for Nov would be $60 and some change. I looked today to pay my bill and it still only showed 18.99 credit. I called customer service. I was put on hold then hung up on. I called back and once sent to a rep I was automatically hung up on. I called back two more times and on the fourth try I spoke with someone who informed me I was pretty much out of luck they don't refund hotspot. (Had I been told this initially that would have been fine) I c
Crickt phone reactivation
When we buy new phones we keep the old ones (that still work) and put a couple off to the side just recharging occasionally. My question is can we reactive one of our old cricket phones on another one of our lines if needed or does it need to be the same line? I would think since it's a cricket phone it can be any line but just wanted to check. And yes, I'm sure there would be an activation fee but still the best deal for five phones I've found. Thanks.
Lost WiFi access
I have owned a Samsung Galaxy Halo phone for several years and all that time I had WiFi Hot Spot access for which I paid an extra fee. Recently I changed to the "Unlimited & 15GB Mobile Hotspot" plan and suddenly lost WiFi Hot Spot access. I called the customer several times and asked why my WiFi Hot Spot was cut off. They told me that I lost access because I change plans and the Hot Spot would not work with the Galaxy Halo. I asked then to be switched me back to my old plan and they told me that could not be done. They proceded told me that my only recourse was to purchase a new phone. Told them that I paid a lot of money for my Galaxy Halo and expected it to provide WiFi hot spot access. I explained to them that it was ILLEGAL to charge me for WiFi Hot Spot access and not provide that service. Only after that remark did they offer to give me credit. CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME RESOLVE THIS ISSUE?CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW TO ACCESS A PERSON AT CUSTOMER SERV
I deleted by mistake the number of the voicemailit is a 10-digit number which is saved in the Phone app's settingIn my device it is in the following path:Phone (app) > Settings > SIM 2 (I have dual SIM) > More > Voicemail > Voicemail numberThis is where the 10-digit number should appear in full, however, in my case it is just the digit 1, therefore, when I press on '1' in the dial pad to access the voicemail it dials just '1' which goes nowhere.Please help, even though it might be saved in a different location in your device it should still be the same number for all Cricket subscribers
International not working
I purchased the $5 plan yesterday, arrived in country today, trying to call my hotel, I get a pop-up telling me that mobile network is not available. Connect to a wireless network to make a call. I have no bars. Do I need to turn on international roaming in settings? I tried that but got a warning that significant charges may be incurred so I turned it right back off. Please help! Thanks!
My phone software was recently updated on my s9 as it stated that advanced messaging was a new feature but when I tested it out it didn't work. Does it not apply to cricket or specific phones? For me so send videos I have to use WhatsApp if not the video is poor quality. And knowing that a message was sent or read or the person is doing is an awesome feature.

Filesize limit on Cricket Hotspot downloads?
I can't find any information on this anywhere perhaps someone here can help. Any download I attempt while using the cricket mobile hotspot is being canceled at about 4.5MB. For regular downloads through a browser I can attempted to continue the "failed" download, however for automatic updates larger than this undocumented limit, the file just gets re-downloaded over and over, never completing. Anyone have a fix for this? I didn't see any setting on my phone.
Voice Call Records
Hi! All.I am trying to retrieve my call record for a specific date.The representative suggests me to contact an attorney to get it.Is not the customers right/privilege to have it on request/demand.AT&T used to have it on theweb.What does Federal Regulation say ?How do I access it?Thanks for your input.SK
I have a Motorola MotoE5 Cruise. When I go into phone settings/calls/additional settings the Caller ID option says 'Loading settings' and the Call Waiting option will not allow me to turn it on. Both options are greyed out on this screen. Eventually a popup appears that says 'Call settings error. Network or SIM card error (I assume this is it timing out while trying to load the Caller ID settings). People are telling me they are getting busy signal when I am on the phone and they try to call me and the only calls coming in that are ID'ed are from people I have in my contacts. How do I solve these two problems?
O2 UK not receiving texts.
HiUp until Aug 29th, my brother who lives in England was receiving my texts without any issues. After that date he's not received any of the texts I've sent him, but I can receive texts from him. My sister who is on the same network as him (O2 UK) received the test text I sent her. I also tried texting him from the 3 other phones on my plan and he never received any. He went and had his sim card changed to see if that would solve it, but he's still not getting them. I haven't changed my plan or had anything else added to it, so what would be causing this?
Wi-Fi Manager Not Opening up LogIn Screens
I've just noticed this in the past couple of days, but I am no longer able to log in to wifi outside of my home. Usually when I am out, I can connect to free wifi by tapping on the connection and then sometimes it will take me to the Log-In page of that company where I can fully connect to it. Otherwise, I don't have full access to the internet. I noticed that before it was the Cricket Wi-Fi Manager that would bring up the log in screen but it is no longer doing that. I noticed that its not an issue with the company/business, so it has to be some error on my end. Does anybody have any advice on this? I don't want to keep using my mobile data when I can't connect to the wifi.
I have been a Cricket customer for a couple of years now and, for the most part, happy with the service. We have two phones, both the same Samsung model, and I had a hotspot on mine. We were in the store yesterday to purchase a phone and hotspot for my father-in-law and the girl behind the counter convinced my wife that we needed to switch to a new plan that would give both of us a hotspot for the same monthly payment. So she switched us. However it appears that the hotspot will not work with our phones. Strange because it's been working with mine for almost 2 years. No one bothered to check and see if our phones would work and they won't let me go back to my original plan. I'm thinking that I see a new provider in my future.
Hey Cricket Wireless, I asked this question to the phone support and chat support and no accurate answers.. They seem like they don't have a bit of knownledge about what i am asking about, My question is basically Will Cricket's signal difference between them and my current provider of verizon matter to much? Cricket gets like -117dBm all the down to -130dBm in my area. Verizon gets like -110dBm all the way down to -124dBm where i live.. Will the difference between the two carriers make a difference in calls dropping where i live? I really want to switch to Cricket but i need my phone.
No bars in Kansas City!!
I have been a loyal Cricket customer for 20 years now. This year my service is so bad it's reminding me of the early years. I drive all over the KC metro daily for my job. I rely on my GPS and Pandora DAILY. Rarely do I get more than 2 bars of service, and sometimes I can't even get a map to pull up at all, which leaves me stranded or wandering aimlessly until it decides to load. I've called customer service multiple times about it. One time I was told that a tower was down in my area. Another time I was told it was probably my phone that was the problem, and was told to reset network settings. I have 4 lines on my account, with 4 different types of phones, and they ALL have 1-2 bars MAX. This is unacceptable. As I have perused this community forum, I see that coast to coast people are having the same issues. What's going on???
LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE
I needed to add another phone to my line and the cricket agent told me I could save money by switching to an unlimited plan with 4 phones. I made it ABUNDANTLY clear that my phone has hotspot and that I needed it on my phone and not the other lines. He told me that ALL the lines would have hotspot after the change to the new plan. and my bill would only go up $5 after adding the new line, 2 days later I went to use my hotspot and it no longer worked, so I called cricket and they told me my phone was not compatible with hotspot, I proceeded to tell them that I was using hotspot for years on that same phone up until I was guaranteed that all my phones would have a hotspot. As they were pulling down my pants they told me there was no way to get my old plan back, and as they proceeded to fu<k me, they told me they COULD give me hotspot on my phone but all the phones would no longer have unlimited data and they would have to charge me $60/mo. on top of what i'm already paying.
