My S10+ that they said was good to go after the 3G shut down is good for nothing now. So I go into the store and they tell me get a s20 or newer (even though my daughters s9 still works) I buy a s20 with a model # cricket’s website says is compatible and guess what, it does the same dang thing. They want to blame everyone else but this new phone made the first call I tried as a test. Then 2 minutes later I get a text from cricket that the phone is not compatible and calls stopped. Somewhere they have a problem with these phones getting listed and blocked and they need to figure it out. This is unacceptable.
I purchased a Galaxy s10e on October 29th. I purchased a Galaxy because it has gorilla glass, high ram, fits my hand (why I bought the e vs the S10)I'm in Atlantic city on a business trip. I'm a vendor for a large camp convention. I need my phone, contracts are on the line. Same issue, Sunday morning I couldn't make or receive calls. Went to cricket store today, they said it's no longer supported. I said I had gotten weird texts from cricket "your device requires a change to continue service, please update your software version" several times. There were no available updates so I thought hey, I couldn't do when they said. No harm assumed, I'm up to date. They said those texts were informing me that my phone would no longer be supported which is wrong. I was nice, I didn't get upset, it's not their fault. They did go into the back and get me a Moto G Stylus which is nice. I told the lady, as long as it has gorilla glass, she said I needed my own screen protector. I said, no, I just boug
I have a Galaxy S10e, and per Cricket’s page, it is compatible after the 3G sunset. But two days ago it stopped making/receiving calls. Everything else works; text, data, GPS, WiFi, etc, but it won’t make calls, and when someone calls me it goes straight to voicemail, which I can’t get either because I can’t make a call. I never reecived notice from Cricket that I would have an issue with the 3G sunset, which is supported by the fact that my phone is compatible per Cricket’s “3G Sunset” page. I talked w/ Tech Support and after a half-hour, they were able change my LTE to H+ And I was able to make calls, but that only lasted an hour. As soon as I drove away from my house my phone reverted to LTE and I couldn’t make any calls. I stopped at the Burien Cricket store and the lady there told me that my phone isn’t compatible and that Cricket is offering free comparable phones for people affected by the 3G sunset, though then she told me I’m not eligible for some reason. She seemed to
Help! Cricket sent me a text telling me I needed to update the software on my phone to be able to use it after they shut down their 3G network. My software is up to date but I still can’t make or receive calls! I’m using an unlocked S10+ that says it is compatible on their website.
Will the new Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G (Factory Unlocked) be compatible for use on the Cricket Network?I don't need to see the compatibility list. This phone is a new release. Cricket does sell the S21 FE 5G, but my fiancé ordered the 256gb unlocked version directly from Samsung.
Hello,I have 5g plan, activated a new SIM card from cricket a couple of weeks ago, and I live in a 5g area. Yet my unlocked Z Flip 3 still only has LTE service. I see other folks have the same issue but cricket never posted the actual resolution steps in the answer. Anybody knows how to fix the no 5g issue?Thanks!
I tried adding protection when I bought my phone online. After I got my phone and started activating it I find out they never added it. There just the money to my account. So after calling customer service they told me I had to go to my local cricket. Well they tell me they can't add it. Yes I tried to get it before my 7 days was up.
We need to.upgrade 2 of our phones for the new 5g system but they only allow you to order one phone and when you get it and activate it then you can order another one. That makes no sense at all. If I'm having to upgrade 2 phones, I should be able to order 2 phones at the same time. I'm about ready to switch companies
So, I spoke to Samsung today and they assured me that my note 8 would be able to function on the network as long as it has the latest software upgrade. This was also explained to me by a cricket employee at the local store.Can someone from Cricket answer the question... why is this phone not listed as a compatible device? It is perfectly capable of operating on the network as a 4g device. Is there something that can be done to correct the oversight?
Hi everyone, I have a Galaxy s20 plus. When I receive messages while phone is off, it does not display the time the message was received, but when the phone was turned on. This is only occurring with txt not mms. Using built-in samsung messaging. The attached image is what I received from Cricket via Facebook Messagner Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I am unable to send text messages to a friend because Cricket immediately bounces back a text saying that the number is invalid, which it is not. This has happened with 1-2 other numbers, but the majority of numbers work fine with no issues. I have tried various Google solutions, to include checking my APN settings, clearing my visual voicemail cache, and clearing my Messages cache and data, but nothing has worked so far. The only other theory seems to involve a bad SIM card from switching networks, however this SIM card is from our original Cricket phones, so that should not be an issue. How can I resolve this kick back to be able to send messages to these numbers?
Why has this issue not been solved yet? My Galaxy S10+ has options to block cell based spam but no option to block email based spam send to entire groups of #s. This is infuriating and I am sick of it. I hear other providers like ATT and Verizon have this capability, why is Cricket lacking?
Hi! I am hoping to confirm if my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will continue to work on Cricket’s network after the 3G shutdown. I did receive the text message from Cricket regarding the shutdown. However, I’ve been checking the Cricket site (specifically the “Device Compatibility” lookup) and I received the “Yay, your Samsung SM-G925A is compatible!” message when plugging in my phone’s IMEI ID. This leads me to believe that my phone will work after the shutdown. I should note that I checked other carriers and it appears that my phone will work on their platforms after the shutdown. For example, AT&T is indicating that my phone will continue to be supported on their network after the decom. This furthers my belief that my phone should continue to work as Cricket uses AT&T’s network for service. Thanks for any confirmation regarding if my phone (Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge) will continue to work on Cricket’s network after the 3G shutdown. My phone works perfectly and I really have no desire
I was assaulted and hospitalized at the end of November 2021. The man who assaulted my evaded the police and hasn't been caught yet. He has been harassing me and hacking my phone every day since th assault threatening to get my family or me if I choose not to talk to him. Par change my phone number please?!,!?
I moved service from AT&T to Cricket after 27 years because of the constant frustration of fluctuating bills, data overages… Have really liked and recommended Cricket to several of my friends and business associates. NOW being bombarded by Cricket about getting an upgraded phone because of their switch to 5G. I get receiving a heads up but this is CONSTANT call redirects and NO help AT ALL from customer service. Reluctantly, I finally decided to purchase a new phone. Of course the Samsung S20 isn’t stocked in any local store, only the crap throwaway phones, so I was directed to order one thru Cricket app. What an ordeal to set THAT up...the Cricket app is non functional, and wont allow ordering the phone. So, came here to the website- Phone listed for sale on app at 359.00 here for 429.00...MORE AGGRAVATION!!CRICKET HAS NOW FULLY EMBRACED THE AT&T MAODEL-THE AGGRIVATION NEVER STOPS
I am wanting to purchase a Samsung Galaxy note. But I do not see it online in the cricket phones available. But I can find it on other websites. I know it was offered through cricket before for purchase. I like to get rhe insurance provided, if I purchase from another retailer can I still get rhe cricket coverage. When I first got cricket, like 5 years ago.. it had to be a cricket phone, to receive the insurance. please and thank you
Cricket Free Msg: Important! Your current phone will no longer work when we shut down our 3G network in February 2022. We are here to assist with upgrade options. To help with the upgrade process, we may re-direct your call to customer service. After January 8th, we may temporarily suspend your service in order to speak to you. You can avoid service disruption by visiting https://www.cricketwireless.com/3Gshutdown, dialing 611, or visiting your nearest Cricket store. Thank you! I have two phones on Cricket for several years. Samsung S7 and Moto G Power. Both were unlocked versions purchased directly from the manufacturer in the USA. Last Friday I received text above on Samsung Galaxy S7 phone about network upgrade. Started looking into things and the IMEI numbers for both phones failed the upgrade check on both ATT and Cricket web sites. Both of these phones do 4G, LTE, and use voLTE/ARM-WB (HD Voice). As long as the device supports AMR-WB, then HD voice is possible on 4G. It’s
I just couldn’t believe my Note 9 and wife’s S9 aren’t on the whitelist? So we have to switch to another carrier?Am I understanding it wrong?The phones are still 100% perfect, nothing is wrong and is capable of 4G. in order to continue using Cricket, we have to buy two new phones?We started with Cricket because we did not like being locked and now Cricket want to enforce the arbitrary and ridiculous phone change? I am not seeing we can buy two new phones before Feb. Sad we have been with Cricket for so long.
I like hassle free. That’s what brought me to Cricket in the first place. I enrolled, paid, got a discount for autopay, and forgot about it for like.. 10 years or something.See, from my perspective, I’m one of the most valuable customer types. Yes, take my money. I may get a cheaper deal else where but so long as I don’t have to think about it and it doesn’t give me trouble I’m fine to chill here.But then Cricket randomly decides to discontinue supporting my phone for no apparent reason?That’s not chill.So now I’ll go elsewhere and pay less because I will not let my phone carrier dictate which phone I can use. Thank you and goodnight.
Even though I replaced a new sim card. Changed the APN, restart my phone, airplane mode, reset network, etl...... Still no 5g. Can anybody help? Thank you!!!!Edit: I'm sure there is 5G coverage in my area because my wife's Galaxy s21 ultra got the 5g all the time.
