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?
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.
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?
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 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
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?
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
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 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?
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
Since getting my phone from Sprint, it's been in an OtterBox. A few drops, but past that, she's been steady in my hands. Well I took off the case and feel like I have a new phone. I forgot how beautiful the porcelain white back glassrouterlogin is contrasting against the black of the camera protruding ever so slightly. The front screen, the sides. I'm discovering this phone all over again. So any of you guys still have your cases on or taken them off, and if so how's it been? Any drops, near-drops, or an OCD-helicopter-parent grip?192.168.0.1
Sometime around the beginning of March, I purchased a factory unlocked Galaxy S8. Prior to the purchase, I checked with cricket to ensure that the phone would be compatible with their service - I was assured that it would. Phone arrived, and I set it up with no issue - or so I thought. The next nay someone informed me that they had been trying to call me but my phone went straight to VM.A bit odd, I thought, and attempted to call them...and the call would not go through. All Data services were working, the phone showed connected to the cricket network, but I could not make calls. I tried everything I knew to do, reset settings, restarted the phone, etc, to no avail and so I contacted customer support. After literal hours or trying this setting and that setting, the support person informed me that my phone was NOT compatible with cricket service and I’d have to buy a new one. But I verified that it was compatible? To which they replied, “Oh, yes, the phone is compatible with our service

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
I have been with cricket for over 4 years. It absolutely pi$$es me off to no end that a new customer only pays $274 for a new s9 and me, a loyal customer, gets charged $549 for the same phone!!!! And gets charged a $25 activation fee for it also. Cricket executives must just be raking in the $$$ over this petty kind of nonsense. Cricket DOES NOT CARE ABOUT LOYALTY!!!! I'll be shopping elsewhere to a provider that will recognize a loyal dollar when they see one!
