Galaxy S9 SM-G960-U security update
SOS someone has fallen asleep at the wheel there has not been a update for Samsung Galaxy S9 phones since November 2020....… Current FirmwareBaseband: G960USQU8FTK2 (Highly outdated) I would have never bought the phone if I knew Cricket was going to abandon all security firmware updates leaving its users wide open for hackers....... (My employer says I cannot use it for work because its a security risk and has been exploited back in January 2021) I know a employee probably will not help is there any users that know of work around I'm presuming I will have to hook it up to a computer and update the phone myself because I'm sure Samsung removed the cricket bloatware and mandatory apps from firmware updates And it's probably the only reason it's not being updated because they cannot obtain user information with it from unlocked phones
Hi, Galaxy S20+After a lot of looking around, I'm not finding what i'm looking for with wallpaper, so I thought i'd ask.Ideally, I would like live wallpaper that mirrors the weather outside (rain, snow, storm, etc), and the light (dark at night, light during the day). I want this over some kind of landscape, or over a photo of my own, or something similar; but not over a cartoon or anything like that. TBF, I only tried the free versions, not the paid versions. So I'm asking if anyone knows a free app that does this.If that doesn't exist, my second option is to have a picture from my gallery, but I want it to scroll when I switch between home screens. I found no settings to allow this, and I only found one app that sort of does this, but it scrolls underneath the home screens when you drag your finger, which makes it look terrible.Anyone have any good suggestions for either of these? Ideally free? Thanks.

Google Messages RCS
Hi. I've recently noticed that my RCS stopped working with Google Messages. It now says trying to verify number and just get stuck on that. I've tried resetting the app and clearing data of carrier services and uninstalling and reinstalling the apps to no avail. I've tried swapping sims but no help as well. Does anyone know how to fix this?
S20 FE exynos battery life?
I am using a s20FE( EXYNOS). I bought it used from a person. The phone is 4 months old. The battery life is simply unbearable. I am getting 4 to 5 hours of screen on time. Even if i turn off 120hz, i struggle to get anything above. The exynos is simply not good and it heats up while using camera. Simply disappointed.
Galaxy A21 Sim Tray
I recently bought an A21 (SM-A215W) for my mother, but she has lost the Sim tray out of the phone. I have tried Amazon, Ebay and even Samsung Canada themselves, but no one seems to have access to a Sim tray for this specific phone. I have found plenty for an A21s, but I've tried them and they don't fit. Samsung directed me to a third party repair centre, and they simply said they don't cover that phone. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The s7 edge was a beautiful phone
I remember upgrading from my s5 to an s7 edge and oh boy it was the most beautiful phone at that time. I still think its one of the better looking phones even to date. The colors they used and the way the glass shined, the double edged screen (even though it was a nuisance sometimes) it was such a good looking phone.What do you think is the best looking galaxy phone ever ?
Not receiving texts
This has been happening to me on and off for 3 months randomly. I can't receive texts for a day or two no matter what I do. I've restored my phone multiple times (which is only a year old), I've reset network settings, I've had customer service refresh me on the network multiple times, I've reset apn settings, I've bought a new sim. Everything. Customer service submits tickets and essentially I get told they don't know why it's happening. From the looks of the community forum, it doesn't look like I'm alone as several others say they've experienced the same...so obviously this is a cricket issue. I am about to contact the BBB and potentially a lawyer as I am paying for a service that I have to go several days without being able to use because of THEIR issue with no real help from them. I have actively been looking for another provider because I've come to the conclusion that cricket has no intentions of fixing this issue and can only offer an apology to me.
Cricket sold me a terrible phone
About a year ago my wife and I upgraded our phones. My wife is happy with hers, but I am not with mine. I use my phone a bit differently than most people. I have damaged vocal cords so it is hard for me to be understood on a cell phone, which is why I have most of my conversations via my home phone. So I use my cell for texting, mapping, and taking pictures. I had an LG phone which served me well but had a terrible camera. I upgraded it to a Galaxy A11 and the only thing I like about this one is the camera. Otherwise it is the lousiest phone I have ever had. Even though I actually don’t use it a lot, I still have to recharge it every 36 hours, even if it just sits on my desk. You can literally set the phone in front of you and watch the battery discharge another 1% every few minutes. It seems to be the only Android phone on the market without a magnetometer, so I can’t install a compass. It doesn’t have an indicator light so I never know if a message or a call has come in un
Seriously? This is how you retain custimers?
So I'm toying with the idea of upgrading my phone to a Samsung S20 FE. Take a look at the website and see it's $399. But wait..... As soon as I log into my account, the price jumps to $599. Seriously?!! This is how you entice customers to stay with the service? Disgusting. Totally and thoroughly disgusting. And before the obligatory "contact us on Twitter or Farcebook" reply pops up, I don't do social media.
Phone is full but only 10gb is used out of the 108??
Hi.S20 5G.When I plug my phone into my PC it says I have a total capacity of 108GB but only 2gb free. The files inside only make up 10gb. What is going on? I have only had the phone for a month and have very few apps installed beyond the bloatware. Also very few pics, media etc.I was recording 60fps UHD videos earlier but deleted them via the Gallery app. Are the videos not fully deleted (trash can or something?)Is the operating system / apps etc. really taking up 90GB?
i got a dual sim phone and I need to see if it is compatible with crickets service cause right now I have a IPhone 6 and it’s no longer compatible with the service I have and my mother in law had dealt with it once and then they still disconnected the service from my phone so I need to see if the dual sim internationally unlocked phone is compatible with the cricket service I have
