Wi-Fi Connection Issue | Cricket Wireless
I have the LG Stylo 3...I have been having Wi-Fi connection issues for the past 2 weeks now. Here is the issue...I connect to my homes 2G - Wi-Fi then About 5 minutes later my phone disconnects from the Wi-Fi & disables it. Also, for some unknown reason I am no longer able to connect to my 5G - Wi-Fi. It doesn't even come up as a option anymore. I have called my internet provider to see if the issue was with them, everything is working on their end so it the issue has to be with cricket or the manufacturer. Ugh....
Wifi calling won't activate
TLDR: Wifi calling won't activate, basic troubleshooting done, Cricket support useless. Please help!(I know this is a duplicate post, but Cricket at it's finest wouldn't let me post it initially where it belonged without having something in the welcome board...ugh)Hello, reaching out here as I'm at wit's end with Cricket and this Wi-Fi calling issue. Background, initially signed up for Cricket with an unlocked S6 about 4 years ago. By rule that phone couldn't get wifi calling because it wasn't Cricket branded. Fair enough. June 5, I upgraded my phone to a Cricket branded S10. Tried to set up wifi calling and can only get a green and blue loading circle for about five minutes, then "please try to set up wifi calling again later" is what pops up next. My device has had several updates, and each time it is always the same. I've tried in no less than 4 different places with a strong wifi signal but to no avail. Cricket "support" operators have either blamed the wifi providers, told me to c
SICK AND TIRED
IM SICK OF CARRIERS WHO DO NOT ALLOW MMS OVER WIFI BECAUSE SOME OF US WHO ARE IN A SO CALLED RURAL AREA CANNOT SEND OR RECEIVE MESSAGES WHEN WIFI CALLING IS OUR ONLY OPTION BECAUSE CARRIERS REFUSE TO BUILD TOWERS IM ONLY 10 MINUTES AWAY FROM AN AT&amp;T SIGNAL I ONLY HAVE ONE CARRIER OPTION AT MY HOME WHICH IS CSPIRE AND THEY DO NOT SUPPORT voLTE OR WIFI CALLING AND THAT IS A REQUIRMENT FOR ME AND THEY RIGHT OUT SUCK I SIGNED A CONTRACT WITH THEM BUT BROKE IT AFTER IT WAS UNRELIABLE SERVICE EVERY WEEK THEY WERE DOWN AND WOULDNT REIMBURSE US EVERY MONTH THEY ALSO DO NOT TELL YOU THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE THOSE FEATURES WHEN EVERY OTHER CARRIER IN AMERICA HAS THOSE FEATURES I HAVE ALSO BEEN FIGHTING AT&amp;T FOR OVER A DECADE TO BUILD A TOWER IN THIS CITY I HAVE MOVED A TOTAL OF 4 TIMES AND THERE SIGNAL ALWAYS SUCKS WITH JUST 1 BAR WITH SPARADIC SERVICE OR NO BARS AT ALL WHEN ARE CARRIERS GOING TO REALIZE THAT TOWERS DO NOT WORK THEY ALSO WANT TO BUILD TOWERS IN AREAS THAT DONT NEED
Sad phone specials for current customers
Many companies do this, they offer great deals to new customers and current loyal customers get the low end, it is so infuriating. I have been with cricket for years now and now that I want to upgrade I have to pay 549.99 + 25.00 for a Galaxy S9 if I was a new number/customer I would pay 274.99 + 25.00 what is the problem here? I see no deals for loyal current customers. I may consider switching carriers since this is really upsetting since phones are so expensive these days.
Welcome, do not try to make things right with customer service via live nor email. I never received rewards last year and now told via email because live agent did not understand me, that refer a friend does not exist and not to contact them about it. I am a liar I suppose. I got screwed out of $$ twice now, refer a friend incident is too long to type but beware. Is that a question?
Can Not Send MMS via iPhone
Two phone calls and a visit to local Cricket office have failed to fix this issue which has surfaced in recent months after more than a year of satisfactory service.Sending via MMS is unreliable. Rarely sends on the first attempt. But apparently I can receive OK.Internet searches suggest the problem is DNS returning an MMS server IP address which is not reachable via WiFi and the public internet. Suggests an override setting for Android which is not possible on iOS. But that provides a hint which usually works: disable WiFi on my iPhone, reboot, and then it seems to reliably send MMS for a few days. But recently has starting having trouble sending SMS too. But no problem messaging to Apple users on iCloud.Would think an unreachable IP address would result in an instant failure, but the failure message takes minutes. Green bar appears across the top of screen, reaches about 95% then hangs for minutes until the error message. This seems to be more of a timeout at the server than unreacha
Wifi Calling Doesn't Turn On Easily
I live in an area where my cell coverage is little to none in my house. I purchased 2 Moto e5 Supra phones and got wifi calling enabled on my account and setup e911. After trying to get it to work for 3 days and over 5 hours of calls with support it still didn't work. I brought the phones into a Cricket owned store and they tried for over 3 hours and finally got it to work. It magically started working on both phones. The thought was if you disable wifi calling shut the phone down then start it back up and then enable wifi calling. BUT that still isn't working now.There must be a software problem with this phone and it is REALLY frustrating. Cricket phone support is quite incompetent, they tried telling me to contact Motorolla but the manufacturer said this particular feature is a software feature installed by Cricket and not by the manufacturer. It is the typical hot potato pass the buck. Now I'm past the 7 day return window.
I am wanting to add personal ringtones and assign to some of my contacts. I have used a ringtone app and have downloaded a few. I go to a contact and click on the option to 'Set ringtone' which takes me to the availble ringtones that came with the phone. The last option in this list is "+ Add ringtone". I click on it and it opens the folder where I stored my downloaded ringtones. I click on the ringtone I want to add which closes the folder and takes me back to the list of available ringtones but the one I selected is not added to the list.
COVID -19 and the need for UNCAPPED Hot Spot
We’re committed to keeping our customers connected to family, friends and the latest information. Beginning March 14, we will waive reconnect fees for customers who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Cricket customers who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic should call Cricket customer care at 1-800-CRICKET (274-2538) or 611 from their Cricket phone if they need this reconnect fee waived. I called Cricket via 611 and had a very specific question with regards to COVID-19 and with all that is being shut down , among that call was with regards to our schools being shut down here in Washington State . I was told by a representative that there has been an application placed in to the government to help assist with removing caps because with everything that is closing from Doctors office Lobbies to mental health centers, Schools, theaters and other forms of entertainment , ALL have been shut down and we can no longer access them. My Q
Can't make or receive calls but can text.
I cannot make or receive calls at home on all 3 of my phones for hours at a time. Always have full signal bars. I can drive 2 miles down the road and all 3 work fine. Cricket has been absolutely useless in resolving this. This has been ongoing for 6 months. I'm forced to find another carrier. I read somewhere that Cricket is fine as long as you don't have a problem. True statement.
10 person Text Recipient Limit
I'm disappointed that Cricket only allows a MAXIMUM of 10 people to send a group text to. I know other carriers are not limited like this. I have at times the need to send out a group text to 18 people. This 10 person limit is just an arbitrary limit set by Cricket. If other carriers aren't limited I'm sure technically Cricket could expand the number of recipients.This is just my feedback. I'm sure there are other people that would appreciate this 10 person cap being expanded.
Travel to Europe
Hello, when in Europe this summer I would like to use my iPhone 11 on WiFi only. I have the 5GB/$30 plan. Two questions:How do I ensure that the phone will never connect to a European cell tower, but will only use wifi? Can I have Cricket block all international roaming?Cricket website says “The use of Wi-Fi Calling may be restricted in some countries” but I can’t find a list. Will wifi calling work in EU countries?
texts & emails delayed/calls not getting through
It may be a coincidence but I've noticed these problems ever since upgrading from Nougat to Oreo 8.0 on my Moto Z Play.It's not ALL the time but it enough to be REALLY annoying. Text and emails can take up to hours before i get them. Friend messaged me and it didn't show up till over an hour after he sent it thru Hangouts. Sister sent a message through WhatsApp and that took over an hour till I got it. Same with the stock Android message app.Also calls not coming through. My sister called 3x the other day and I never heard the call or even had a notification that she called 3 times.I already reset my network and all that stuff. Any ideas? It's become problematic...don't really want to leave Cricket but if Cricket is the problem then I have no option :(
My signal keeps disappearing every few minutes and then coming back, disappearing and coming back, every 3-4 minutes for 2 days now I can hardly do anything with my phone. This is the 4th time in the past 2 months this has happened. All 4 times on a Sunday-Monday. What's going on with the towers in my area? Who knows. Every time I can call customer service I get someone in the Philippines who tells me there doesn't seem to be any problem in my area. They don't know anything. So now I'm done with Cricket and in 2 weeks I'm changing to a different company. I highly recommend anyone who has issues not to waste any more of their time and just ditch Cricket since they don't care about customers with issues anyway. You'll just go around in circles with nothing ever resolved.
Streamed music data
Hi, this is more a suggestion than a question, but I don't know where to post it, so I guessed here would be fine.Long time ago I was with T-Mobile and besides their problem with coverage and high priced plans, they had one very cool feature: all the streamed music won't count in your data transfers, so you could use whatever service you liked (Google Play, iTunes, Spotify, Pandora...) with no decrease in your available data, very convenient if you use this kind is music services.Are you guys planning our have you ever thought to offer a similar feature? It will be perfect!Besides that, cricket is the best wireless company in the US!Thanks!
why is Cricket wireless data so slow now? It takes so long to load a page now. I'm in San Francisco.
