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.
With things moving to 5G, a lot of people have been forced to get new phones recently. When doing that, many will look to get the latest phone models. I've always got the latest Samsung Galaxy S. series and was surprised Cricket doesn't carry any of them. So they have basically eliminated that market. Other carriers are giving deals on those phones! Oh well, I checked and was told I could buy an unlocked phone elsewhere as long as it was listed in their supported phones Iist. Yay, the S22 is supported! So I went to Samsung and purchased my new S22. I also bought a case, screen protector, camera lens protector, and phone popsocket grip. I should be all set. The Sim card is the same size. I move the Sim a ND power it back on. No problem! I can make calls and send texts, so I start setting things up. The next day I go to setup my hotspot so I can go online with my laptop. What happens?This phone is not supported for hotspot!!!!! What the %@!$%# Call Cricket and I'm told they plan to supp
I have a Cricket Samsung A51 5G which I used for over a year that I’m trying to network unlock as I have upgraded and trying to sell my old phone. I tried to unlock it using the website but it tells me that I have to use the cricket app to unlock it. The problem is there is no “unlock” button on my cricket app login screen, I tried reaching costumer service but they had no answer other than uninstall, install the app again, clear cache and data and using data instead of wifi. None of that worked. When I open the my cricket app an error message that says “network unlock keeps stopping” pops up from time to time. Cricket support said once I insert a sim from a different carrier it should unlock but when I do it gives me a prompt asking if I want to unlock, when I press yes it just opens the my cricket app but nothing happens. Has anyone had this issue and how do you fix it?
Just recently I have noticed that my text messages are being delayed or just not being delivered. I also notice that I get a message that I am off line and then back online all while being someplace connected to wifi.Is there something going on or do I just need to switch to a different carrier?
I bought an unlocked Verizon phone. I checked the imei # with numerous websites and they all say the phone is clean. But cricket /At&t say it's stolen or not unlocked. I called Verizon they said the phone has been unlocked since 2017 when it was purchased and the phone is clean. Verizon said there has never been any issues on the phone. Verizon can't understand why At&t and cricket say it's stolen. Verizon said it's there phone so cricket can't blacklist it and they can't understand why it's saying it's blacklisted when it is not!! At&t and cricket will not resolve this issue! They say they can't remove a Verizon phone from a blacklist but VERIZON DOESNT HAVE IT BLACKLISTED!! Cricket has it blacklisted. I have googled how to resolve this issue and I have found MANY people complaining of this same issue. Saying cricket/At&t are blacklisting phones that are perfectly fine so that you have no choice but to buy a new phone. If I don't get this resolved I will not be buyin
The S10+ is not listed on the 5g compatibility list. That’s ridiculous. You have the S10 and the S20, the S10+ cost me $1200. Just switched to Cricket from AT&T yesterday. I’m only getting 1.5mb download speed. That’s terrible. I was getting 5mb or more on the AT&T. I thought I was on their same network?Looking now into possible changes to the APN to properly connect to 5G. Questions:Anyone know the APN settings? Why isn’t the S10+ listed as compatible? Any ETA? I’m on BYOD plan, can I just buy a new phone from the compatible list and insert my existing SIM?
I can use wi-fi just fine but once I get out of range, my data wont kick in. My phone will just decide I have to reconnect to wi-fi. This is pretty annoying if I try to pull up my insurance card to a cop “because i’m not connected to wi-fi” OR i’m trying to use maps. Data is enabled on the phone (it’s not turned off) but it won’t actually workIs this a phone issue or a Cricket issue? Anyone know how to help me?
I suddenly can't text my friend. I get his texts but he doesn't get mine. We're both on Cricket and are the only person that doesn't get my texts. Worked for awhile yesterday when he was at Cricket store now not working again. What do I do ? I've checked everything.
My Samsung Galaxy A32 5G purchased from Cricket online in March with Android 11 is still stuck on the February Android security update. There is also no option to get Android 12. When will this phone receive security and Android version updates from Cricket?
The question to answer is, “How can Cricket make the phones on the “white list” actually work and be compatible or will Cricket offer discounts in cases where we, loyal customers, purchased phones that are on that list and turn out not to be compatible?--If you can text and not talk, it probably has something to do with the change AT&T made to dropping 3G and you phone not supporting HD LTE or such. My phone is on Cricket’s “white list” as compatible. Once I ordered it, (from an independent source) the IEMI comes up as not compatible. ????I spoke with one Cricket service member and they went by the book. “Not compatible, nothing we can do.” Then when I spoke with someone via the online-phone conference, that support person said, “Yes, it’s on the list, even though the IEMI doesn’t work, it will work. He said he was going to change something around and sent the sim card and charged me my first month for the added line and the sim card. Surprise! The phone texts but doesn’t ca
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?
My ex had access to my sim card and ALL my info to look like it was me. I don't know what he did but my sim no longer works I'm not sure what to do cuz this community website thing just wants to send a code to my number that's not working
Hi guys, I just upgraded from Samsung A73 to Samsung S21+. My only concern is that the notifications and ringtones I am using on the Samsung A73 are not on the Samsung 21+. Specifically the "Rise" sound and the "Space Funk" ringtone.I used File Commander and browsed around but didn't find any audio storage location. I know I can just download their MP3s but then when I use YT Music and play music from my phone those stupid tones show up and it's really annoying.Basically what I'm looking to do is go into the system folder where the sounds are kept on the S9+ and move them to the same folder on the mt S10+. Is this possible?Thank you.
Thanks for any insights. I have already purchased a cheaper Cricket phone until I fix or give up on this one…A few days ago my Galaxy A51 5G (which had been fine minutes earlier for calls/texts) suddenly restarted multiple times in a row. After maybe 5 minutes of this, it stayed on but told me there was no sim card installed.I manually rebooted and the same thing happened - multiple consecutive reboots, until finally it stayed on but told me no sim card was installed.I subsequently figured out that if I put the phone in Airplane mode, it would stay on and let me work via Wi-Fi for maybe a few hours before rebooting itself again and again.I removed/reinserted the SIM card, reset the network settings, uninstalled all non-essential apps, booted to safe mode (still would not recognize the sim card), and went to Cricket and purchased a new sim card. None of it helped. Then I did a factory data reset, but still the same issue. I found threads for A51 restarting on Samsung, but they were not
Hi Guys I been apple user and my visual voicemail worked very well but I wanted to switch to Samsung 4 months ago and now I found this problem in android. So I did every thing to clear cache, clear storage cache, reset password, change password etc etc and my S22 Ultra factory unlocked from I bought with Samsung Manufacturer and the Vs Voicemail doesn’t work in any visual voicemail app, indeed the cricket app nether. So I called to customer service and they everything and nothing, Guys guys stop the excuses and make update to your network to any android phones factory unlocked that don't say "cricket on the back" can work fine with visual voicemail, because is suppose we paying for that and is the phone is factory unlocked is suppose to work everything on any Samsung. How is possible any Samsung with the Cricket logo in the back works well and the others doesn’t?? I know you have a apn personal secret setting for that and I pay my monthly bill and I request full service with you. So I
I have 4 lines on my plan. We all have the same phones. Both mine and my daughter's lines won't make or receive phone calls. We can text and use data. I have tried switching my sim card to another phone which is also on my plan that is working. That phone would not work with my sim card in it. I have tried driving to another spot closer into town still won't work. I tried turning my phone off and on that didn't work. I tried taking my sim card out that didn't work. I tried clearing the cache that didn't work. I tried to call can't make any calls. I tried to chat held on the chat for over 20 minutes. Then got disconnected. Now they are closed. They are not even open for technical support. This is ridiculous. My bill is paid up. I checked my software is up to date. Here I've been without phones for a day now. This is the biggest crock of#$it ever.
