Plans & Features
Send & receive text
We will be going on a cruise in Europe and have the ships internet package. we don’t care about making calls but is it possible to send/receive texts? We both have android phones (Samsung and Moto) but i noted when I tried to test if able to receive texts in airplane mode with Wi-Fi on, you had to turn on WI-FI calling. I’m trying to figure out if turning on WI-FI calling so we could get our texts would work in another country or if we just need to stick with emails. 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?
Turbo Hotspot 2
I want to buy a turbo hotspot 2 and a data plan. The choices are1. I’m switching to cricket,2. I need a new number, or3. I’m upgrading my phone. Of course, none of those are accurate so which one do I choose? What does each one mean?Can I add extra hotspot data to my data only plan like I can with my phone’s mobile hotspot if needed?Can you give instructions for buying and setting up the hotspot beginning to end? That would be very helpful.Is there a way to make my phone and data only plans come due for payment on the same day of the month?Thank you.This page is forcing me to choose a subject but won’t let me choose phones and devices, which is accurate. None of the devices listed is a hotspot so I can’t choose an accurate subject, it’s forcing me to choose something inaccurate. Why don’t you make your website clear? Then I wouldn’t even have to be writing here to get information.
Cricket please unblock static IP port access
I have a static IP. I believe Cricket is blocking the standard IMAP, SMTP, HTTP, and other ports.I’m able to ping the static IP---so we know cricket is able to connect to it.But, recently, as of a week or so, I have NOT been able to get/send IMAP mail using cricket.Similarly, I cannot access my web services on multiple non-standard ports.Every one of the accesses just spins in the browser or the mail app.Prior to a week ago, all of the above used to work. Now it has stopped.(BTW, all other ISPs and cellular providers can access these ports.)
Horrible Service !! Would not recommend!!!
The phone service from this company isH O R R I B L E !!!im literally STUCK here because of paying my bill here but good God y’all need to do better !!!! Plenty of time cricket have let me down in an EMERGENCY!!!! Can’t call or text for help !! No service !!! Always 1 BAR !!! Atrocious !!!! I hate it here!!!
This is it
I’ve repeatedly been calling and texting Cricket about your HORRIBlE CUSTOMER SERVICE, and your inability to fix situations when they arise. My last straw with you guys is that you’ve been unable to give me a clear answer as to why I’m unable to pay my bill online and force me to go into the store to pay my bill and force me to pay a $4 convenience fee when I go into store. You don’t even have to response or have to give me a b.s credit it really don’t matter. I do appreciate what some have tried to do to make up for this ridiculous pattern that cricket has with them it’s the same thing over and over with you guys.
Out of country, Wifi Calling has stopped working.
I have an LG X Charge, so it’s an oldie, but my plan is still active. I need Wifi Calling to be on in order to receive SMS for various verifications. I am not in a country that allows roaming so I unfortunately don’t have the option to use that (can’t afford those charges!). Wifi calling has not been active today and yesterday.I’ve tried resetting my router, airplane mode, resetting my phone, resetting my network settings, making sure I’m on a 2.4ghz wifi connection, changing to a different wifi connection, and taking the sim card out and putting it back in. None of these have worked thus far. Any advice, or knowledge of an outage right now?Edit: Also to note, I did check and my phone is updated. There is nothing new for me to install. Wifi calling was working swimmingly up until yesterday. I’ve been in this country for a few months now.
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.
Can i still use WiFi if dont pay for service
Hello was wondering if anyone can help with these two questions i have because i am considering using Cricket.First question is, are the phone plans have contracts?And if I were not able to pay for service, will Cricket deactivate my phone rendering it completely useless as to where i can not use my phone's Wifi?
I am not able to file a phone claim via Asurion
I have a cracked phone and I managed to separate my screen from the rest of the phone and can not access anything. I tried filing a claim through Asurion and I was told my information was inaccurate and was not able to file the claim. I’m not sure what to do.
data stupid slow in denver
Me and my girlfriend both have the cricket dream 5g with the 60 dollar plan. Both of us. Two separate plans. Her phone will be right next to mine. Whenever I do comparitive speed tests with the same testing software, hers is always always faster. Sometimes by a little, most of the time by a lot.Right now I'm getting about 1.1mbps.Without a skip, she gets 6mbps. We are on the same tower. Phones are factory fresh. It doesn't matter where I go this is always the case. This is proof that cricket is throttling whoever they want for really no reason.
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?
phone data apple iphone 13
Since October 6 my Internet has been on and off every single day when I’m not connected to Wi-Fi it does not work. I cannot use my apps nothing that I do with my dad. I’m including my phone calls or messages when I called Cricket which I’ve been calling multiple times they offered to give me a $10 credit.
Data Usage Almost Gone
I just paid my bill on September 18, 2022 and I recieved a text message from Cricket stating my Data Usage was getting low and that was within a couple days after paying off my total bill. I pay my total bill on time every month and this same thing happened last month and now a few days later my phone is saying slow date usage and just spins buffering out of control. This is not acceptable, especially when I don't even use their data each month I use my own from my own personal internet at home on my roommates acct. AND WHAT HAPPENED TO UNLIMITED DATA USAGE ANYWAY!!CUSTOMER SERVICE YOU NEED TO FIX THIS MISHAP OR I'M CHANGING MY SERVICE CARRIERS.... I HAVE BEEN A LOYAL CUSTOMER FOR OVER 12+ YEARS YOU CAN LOOK ME UP.... YOU HAVE MY ##... THANK YOU, Pamela Fisher
Cricket is over
I got a text that my seven year autopay was “removed”. I checked everything related to this on my end and it’s fine. I spent 20 minutes on hold and finally a rep answered. I explained my situation and no response. Then beep beep beep on phone. I will NOT tolerate this!!!Cricket is over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They won’t even post this
Hotspot Stopped Working
In November of 2021 I brought my Pixel 4a from ATT to Cricket Wireless. The hotspot worked fine until I went to use it last month September of 2022. I have the top tier plan and the last time I used it was in June of 2022. I called customer service and was told that phone wasn’t supported on the network. Voice and data work fine so the phone has to supported. Looking to see what has changed since June.
