I purchased Samsung Amp Prime phone from cricket. I used it for a while and moved on to apple phone (without using it for 6 months as they claim to be the criteria for unlocking the phone) now I’ve had the amp prime for more than 2 years and every now and then I use it but obviously won’t give up my apple for using prime as a primary phone right?Now I want to travel abroad with both my phones and they won’t unlock that phone ! I called the customer service and they’re not helping. I know this is not going to help too, it’s really sucky service and feels like they trap you in it. I’m really unhappy.

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
If you have purchased a Cricket s20FE, do not update to Baseband G781USQU3DUCB, their latest OTA update. Your device will begin disabling the backlighting on your screen and begin to flicker when under bright areas (outside) when you have adaptive brightness, or anything higher than 80% brightness enabled outside.My temporary solution is to disable adaptive brightness and keep it at 60-70%, and hopefully Cricket will release the G781USQU3DUD4 (April 20) OTA update.I have tested this on 3 devices so far, and even flashed this firmware on an unlocked s20FE.On a related note, I have noticed Cricket's baseband versions are identical to At&T's. So I am not sure why they are 3 versions behind from At&t, or if you can flash to their firmware.Is it possible to pop an ATT sim inside the device to get the OTA update?
I have an S5 with a Cricket account. I would like to change to using an S8 while keeping my Cricket number.Since it is a used phone, I cannot upgrade. So, I saw I could request a new sim card for a different device on my current line.If I go this route and order a new sim card for the S8 (keeping my number) does that make the S8 the device now for the line? What happens to my S5?Can I then use my S5 to add an additional line and order a new sim card for the S5 as a new number? Or will it still be linked to the original account and not be available to use as a new line?
I have cricket and am on the 55 dollar unlimited plan. Most stuff works ok but lately downloading apps from the google play store literally takes HOURS. Downloading apps over wifi is very fast as expected. For example downloading the uber app (less than 60mb) took me over an hour. I have full bars and other stuff like internet YouTube and stuff works fine but downloading or updating apps is excruciatingly slow. I've talked with technical support from cricket and also with tech support from google play and have been unable to resolve the issue. Have tried everything. The phone is 8 months old and is in excellent condition. My bill is due on the 15th and I am planning on porting my number and switching to boost mobile tomorrow. I've talked to countless techs from Google and cricket and my problem persists.
I just updated my phone. The phone won't connect to network. I've tried turning the mobile network on and off, finding the network by scanning but still no luck. On top of that, its set on talk back, which means it narrates everything. Plus it won't let me scroll down anything nor get to the app drawer. I've talked with Cricket agents but to no avail. They suggested I go to a local cricket. I don't know how much that will help. Am I missing something?
Samsung A51 5G. When I try to make a call it says “Couldn’t Connect” with the busy tone. When someone calls me it goes straight to voicemail. Texts are working but spotty (very slow). Internet is working. This happened as of the last system update 1 day ago. Nothing wrong with our bills. Everyone else on my plan has no problem. I’ve tried restarting phone, cycling connections on/off, reseating SIM. I am pretty sure this is a Cricket issue for this specific phone.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Note20 5G. It installed a software update yesterday, and now I cannot make or receive phone calls. If I try to call out, it disconnects immediately (makes the sound like a call ended), and incoming calls go straight to voicemail without ringing. Texting and data appear to be working OK. How can this be corrected?
I just migrated my kids from the Samsung J7 V from Verizon over to the Samsung Halo 32gb here on Cricket. The two phones are identical except the Halo has twice as much memory which is making my kids very happy.However one item that they have noticed missing is the button on the top tray to turn mobile data on or off. They are in the habit of always turnning mobile data off when they connect to a wireless network so they don't go over their limit.Where is that button on these Halo phones?
I have three lines on my Cricket account. I upgraded the phone on one of the lines. I have always bought unlocked phones outside of Cricket. This is my first time buying a phone from Cricket.Is the phone I bought from Cricket locked to Cricket?Thanks,Enrique
I recently left my job and ported my cell phone number from the company plan (AT&T) to our personal Cricket plan. The caller ID name that shows up for my Samsung phone is still the company name which confuses people that I call. How can I change the caller ID name that shows up to my name or even something more generic?
TL/DRBeware buying a phone from the online cricket store unless you want to risk Cricket policy hell and double billing of your credit card.Similar to @bobbyanalog I was double billed for a recent smart phone purchase with the Cricket online store. I disputed one of the two charges allowing one of the charges to go through and paying Cricket. About a month later my phone suddenly stopped working with no indication why. Spent 2.5 hours with technical support on September 18th and was told among several things that if I gave Cricket another $25, Adrian the on duty supervisor said that he would make the problem go away. Which I was having none of. Phone began working Sunday night and all day Monday without me coughing up another $25. Tuesday morning phone stopped connecting to the Cricket network again. I went to an actual Cricket store and explained the situation and he said that once a phone gets blacklisted you can call cricket and get it authorized again but due to database repl
Good morning, and thank you for a place to come to. I'm helping my friend who is Korean and I translate for him, he was with Verizon for a long time and just had everything transferred over to cricket.I'm very intuitive with Android phones, but cannot seem to find the correct settings or problem to repair why his text messages are still hitting his old phone number on his old phone and not the new phone number, Verizon said they transferred to cricket.
