New Phone not finding LTE networks
Samsung S10 plus (SM-G975f)Phone will find 4g but not 4G LTE networks. I've added the APN found here on their website, however my "Network Mode" in mobile networks settings does not show a 4G LTE option to connect to. Just "4G/3G/2G (auto connect). I have cleared cache, restarted phone, and reinserted sims. Any ideas?Thank you in advance :)
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.
Turn off Mobile Data
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?
Not receiving messages from most numbers
Starting sometime midday 5/7/19 I stopped receiving all MMS messages. I assumed that was the extent of the problem but it turns out I am not receiving standard SMS messages from all but, as far as I can tell 4 numbers. I have an S7 and have tried the default Samsung messages app and the Google messages app that I normally use. Below is part of my message to customer support. I am still waiting for a response from them, in the meantime does anyone else have any suggestions? Some more info on the issue I am having is that I am not receiving messages. I thought it was just group (MMS) messages at first but have discovered today that i also am not receiving messages directly from a single sender (SMS i assume). I know that I missed messages from a Galaxy 8 Note (?) that I believe is on AT&T, a newer Iphone on AT&T, another newer Iphone on an unknown network, Galaxy S6 on AT&T. The only two numbers that i have found to be able to receive messages from are a Galaxy S7
S9 security patch hasnt been published in months?
Cricket, do you want our phones to get hacked!!?? It is September and you haven't published an update for the Samsung S9 (Pie) since June! However Samsung has published many critical and high vulnerabilities for the Samsung S9 each month since June release. This is negligence and could justify class action status. Love to see how moderators try to spin this one as I'm using your own site as proof of released software dates. Please escalate corporately and don't make excuses or blame the messenger.https://www.cricketwireless.com/support/phone-troubleshooting.html?support#/device/samsung/galaxy-s9-android-pie/topic/software/software-updateshttps://security.samsungmobile.com/securityUpdate.smsb
My husband has the lg stylo 3. We just got it a couple of months ago. A couple of days ago he woke up to find that it had entered "fastboot mode". We have literally tried everything from hard reset to connecting to a pc to try and bypass the system that way. Nothing is working. Has anyone else had this issue with the stylo 3? Please help. I really don't want to have to buy a new phone after only having this one a couple of months.
