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 support it but don't have a date yet! Really? It's August. The phone was released in February. A new version should come out in 2023. So when are you planning on getting around to it? Oh, and S21 isn't spotted either! I'm stunned. Now what? I may just need to find a new service provider. A $600+ phone and I can't do what I could on my S9. I've been with cricket since my S5, but this is a deal breaker and I'm going to let everyone know.
