No mobile data after factory reset - solved it myself.
I did a factory reset on my phone, and then had no mobile data. Tried everything. APN settings, mobile data on, 500 internet searches. Everything fine on the phone except except no data. (WiFi fine)Solution:SettingsBackup and ResetReset network settings.Tada!Here was what Cricket support had to say to help: Me: Hello, I have no mobile data on my phone. I did a factory reset and now there is no mobile data. Support #1: Let's check everything you've ever done in your life that relates to your phone. Sorry, can't figure it out. I will escalate your case.Support #2: Let's check your signal strength.Me: It is not a signal issue. I have the problem everywhere. It started when did a factory reset.Support #2: Well, let's check your signal strength. Hmmm... Your signal seems fine. Sorry, I'll escalate your case.Person at store: Hmmm.

Using phone from Xfinity
I ported over to an Xfinity phone, Moto e5 play. Since switching I have two issues, one major.Major: seems like my Wi-Fi settings have not switched to cricket. I still have the option to connect to Xfinity hotspots. Even though I have this setting turned off, my wifi will still try to connect to the XFINITY hotspot and will show that I'm connected, although obviously I'm not. But this has the effect of disconnecting my data. So that's really annoying. How can I get this phone to switch really over to cricket Wi-Fi? I understand I'm supposed to have the option for Wi-Fi calling also, which is not in my settings.Second thing is that I do not have a cricket voicemail widget so I do not know when someone has left me a voicemail. How do I get that?Thanks!
My husband's GS6 keeps boot looping, may stay up for a minute or two but usually doesn't get fully past the Samsung logo on startup. The day this started he showed me that the phone had a blue screen with Downloading on it. He did not initiate this. I later found out that it's a special screen you have to press 3 keys to get to! He didn't do that! So maybe it was a bad update that came OTA?? Anyhow, have tried to wipe cache, have tried factory reset, and no help.I tried to connect to Smart Switch but it said something like device incompatible. Not sure if firmware problem, or hardware problem, or ?Any suggestions? He had to go ahead and get a new phone but it would be nice if we could get this working as a backup.
Why Cricket requested my package back?
I did a purchase only with Cricket, they send my order Friday, October 19, 2018. In middle of the shipping in UPS Cricket requested return to the sender. I didn't get my phone and my money back. I called customers service, they don't know what is going on with that Cricket requested.
Trouble activating phone-invalid sim card message
I purchased a Cricket compatible and supposedly unlocked Samsung Galaxy s7 from a well-reviewed user on Ebay. I purchased a Cricket universal sim card from Best Buy and went through the activation process here. I wanted to keep my previous phone number, and the new phone shows up under my number on the My Account page. I got a notification saying changes had been made to my account on my old phone as well.The problem is that I keep getting an invalid sim card notification on the new device. I've tried a factory reset and I can't insert my old phone's sim card into the new one as they are different sizes (micro in old, nano in new) to see if the phone is indeed unlocked. How can I get this thing activated and working?
Galaxy Amp Prime 3 Bluetooth not working
I've had this phone for a little over 2 weeks. It's a great phone except that sometimes for no reason when I switch the Bluetooth to the "on" position, it does not actually turn on and I'm forced to reset ALL network connection settings in order for it to work. This means I have to manually re-set up wifi connections, wifi passwords, reset all formerly paired bluetooth connections, etc... I never encountered issues like this with my previous amp prime which worked great for over 3 years. I've checked for system updates but my system is currently up to date. Please help. Thank you.
Galaxy S7 Oreo update & MeltdownI just installed the Oreo update on my Cricket-branded Galaxy S7 yesterday; it has a security patch date of April 1, 2018. My question is, does this update resolve the reports from earlier this month that the GS7 is vulnerable to the Meltdown vulnerability? I'm concerned about this issue, but none of the reports I've read across multiple sources even clarify whether this involves GS7's with Qualcomm chips, Samsung Exynos chips, or both. (All GS7's legitimately sold in the U.S., including the official Cricket model, should have Qualcomm chips.) I've heard that recent security updates may have blocked some variants of Meltdown and/or Spectre, but apparently not the one first reported in August.
Galaxy Prime (Cricket) phone can't connect to 5G
We have Galaxy Prime phones obtained two years ago from Cricket when we opened our account. Today we received an upgraded modem from our internet provider with 5G and 2G options. The Galaxy Prime phones do not read the 5G signal whereas all our other devices (MacBook, PC and an Apple iPad) immediately read the 5G signal. We can only see and connect to the 2G signal.What can we do to get the 5G signal on our Primes? We already have tried the "connect to another network" option and manually typed in the modem's 5G address--no response.
Phone Upgrade Problem
I bought a new phone as an upgrade to my present phone. I have received it and am trying to following the instructions to activate the phone. I would like to keep the same phone number for this phone.I have inserted the sim card and charged the phone. I then go to the activation page located at https://www.cricketwireless.com/activate.html and enter my order number off the invoice and the listed telephone number (which is the same one as the old phone). Click on the "Activate" button and then almost immediately get a notice that "Service Not Available".I am stumped as to what to do now as I cannot seem to get the new phone activated.Any help would be appreciated.

Upgrade question - How much memory does the phone come with
I was thinking about upgrading my phone to one that has more internal memory since between Android 6.0 (two versions behind) with all its junk apps and all the junk apps that Samsung put on the phone take nearly all of the internal memory of the current phone I own leaving me less than 1GB for apps I would like to have on the phone, Well, in any case, I was thinking about upgrading to the Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime 3. On the specifications page for the phone it states "Up to 16 GB internal storage". Does that mean it comes with 16Gb of memory (minus that used by Android and Samsung) or that somewhere one has to specify how much memory one wants when ordering.Thanks for any response. :-)
