I have a new Android phone and I have a new Cricket Wireless “Universal SIM Card Activation Kit” ordered from Amazon. I want to simply insert the new SIM into the new phone and activate it on my existing Cricket Wireless plan/account, replacing my existing one and maintaining the existing plan, existing cellphone number, etc. What is the proper way to do this, ideally through the portal/website? I’ve seen a number of different references to “purchasing a new SIM at a Cricket store and having them perform the activation”, but I don’t believe that should be necessary. Any advice from the community? If I have to do this in multiple steps, that’s fine too. I just want to make sure that the end result is what I want and that I don’t lose either the number or a lot of time traveling or on the phone--I live in a remote area at least an hour one-way away from any store.TIA!
I have been with Cricket for several years. I've been using a Samsung Galaxy S8 and never had a problem. All of a sudden last week my text messages stopped sending to people 50% of the time (I can receive text messages just fine.) When I send a text, half of the texts I send will have a blue spinning circle next to them and then an error message pops up that says "message failed" and my phone asks me to review the message and try again. Sometimes when I click "retry" it will send. Sometimes it won't. It happens no matter if I'm on wifi or not, and I for sure have full service. I've tried making sure my phone's SMSC number hasn't been changed or deleted. It hasn't. I refreshed it just in case. I've tried clearing the messaging cashe. Turning airplane mode on then off. Resetting my phone. Nothing has fixed the issue. What isn't making sense to me is the fact that some messages are sending and some aren't. I can send a message that says "test" to the same number three times and the first
I've been on and off the phone with Cricket Wireless Customer Service today and I'm extremely frustrated. After speaking with five different agents/supervisors collectively for over two and half hours, they talked over me and wouldn't let me speak, then ultimately hung up on me (very professional). I'm trying to switch to Verizon after experiencing months and months of delayed texts and performance issues. Unfortunately Cricket is claiming that the iPhone XR that I purchased from them outright (yes, my own iPhone that I paid for and did NOT finance) cannot be unlocked until after six months from activation date. They claim it states that in the "contract". What??? Contract??? I originally signed up with Cricket because I didn't want a contract! So Cricket Wireless is holding my iPhone XR (my asset that I own) hostage. It's absolutely unbelievable and speaks volumes about a poorly run organization. DO NOT GO WITH CRICKET WIRELESS!!!
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.
I received a text that my account is eligible for HBO Max free, so I clicked the link and installed HBO Max from the play store. I followed directions, clicked on the person icon, then clicked on Sign Into Account, then clicked on sign in with a provider, then I selected Cricket Wireless and then I get this error: Access Denied. You don't have access to http:www.cricketwireless.com/restservices/hboauth/v1/sam1/idp/init on this server. Reference #18.15aa2c17.1631305538.1896458bI have Samsung phone. Any ideas why I can't sign in like it says to?
Hi all,My question is a two parter. First off, I will be purchasing a new iPhone outright through Apple store because my job gives me a discount. When I put my Cricket SIM card into my phone, will Cricket lock my unlocked phone? Second, if Cricket does lock the unlocked phone, can it be unlocked in a week or less if I decide to go to another carrier? I see that Cricket says you need to be a paid customer for 6 months with the device, but that only refers to phones purchased through cricket. If it can be unlocked in a week or less, how would I do that?

I’m dealing with the iPhone of my 98-year-old mother. She has suffered some cognitive decline during the past 60 days. She also fell last Sunday, was admitted to the ER, and has now moved to a nursing home. After 71 years, 7 months, and 18 days in that house, it’s likely that she’ll never go back.I can text the existing number via iMessage.The store tries to text a PIN to the phone, but it doesn’t go through (probably because it needs cellular service, which is what we’re trying to reactivate).I don’t know whether we’re still within the 60-day window to reactivate the same number.I have everything except the PIN. I tried to log in with number and password and am told that account is cancelled.The iPhone is her lifeline.I’m currently at a Cricket store, and am told that this store (and perhaps others) no longer has the ability to bypass the PIN.It seems to me that there has to be a way to escalate this, given the circumstances.Anyone know whom I might contact?Vince Lackner
I am a consumer of cellular wireless but I am not an engineer or a regulatory quality expert, so my question is what are the health and safety risks to using cellular wireless? I recently found information online that explains in a graph format that cellular networks, wifi, microwave ovens are approximately 3 GHz in frequency and or wavelength of 10cm. Is this bad to the human body? I usually don't keep my cell phone on all day and only use it when needed.
Hello, I've been getting emails that parts of Samsung's cloud services will be expiring and transitioning to Microsoft Onedrive. I don't use Samsung Cloud to back up my Gallery photos, so I wasn't concerned, but I do believe I use it to back up my apps so that they'll switch over to future phones I buy. Will app backups be affected by these upcoming changes? Really appreciate any input. Thanks in advance.
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.
I placed an order for 2 iPhone 6s for my daughter and niece.... For some reason by me ordering after 2pm ET the order was placed the next day which was the 25th of February.... The 27th comes around and still no phones, I called to see what's the hold up, and was told it phones will be there tomorrow the 28th....That time comes and still no phones....So Saturday morning I called to find out that my phones was delayed at 5 in the morning..... Somebody from the office will notify me about my order.... Let hours pass on (Saturday) and decided to call back and get your phones have been cancelled, okay.... (So where's my refund).I was told I will have it in my bank no later than Wednesday which was the 4th of March....Checked my card nothing, even called the operated for my card and was told nothing was sent back from cricket.... Calls cricket back and explain to them (still on the 4th)that I haven't received my order or refund so what the hell is going on! Next thing I know is a ticket is
When trying to order a new upgraded phone on my account I get the following error message from Cricket. “Looks like you’ve reached the maximum orders permitted for this address. Sorry about that!”. This error message has come up with the last 2 phones I had upgraded. Waited at least 2 days and was able to order. I have 2 accounts through cricket 6 lines, I have ordered and spent at least $500-$800 in the last 2-3 months upgrading all of our phones. For the last phone we are wanting to upgrade and pay almost $500 for this phone. I have contacted numerous times through the cricket chat, to no help. They say to go incognito, which doesn’t work either and last person told me to wait at least 1 week and try again. ?????????????Sounds like cricket doesn’t even know how to fix their problems, or want money. I tried to go to the local store, guess what, they don’t even carry that phone. Really? How do you get new customers, if you don’t carry all of the phones you offer, especially a
After many happy years using cricket as 1 of my 2 Sims in many international phones that operate on the correct LTE bands and with all the latest features, cricket suspends my line if I use a completely compatible device that's not on their very limited list. I figure there must be more people experiencing a similar issue recently as they suspend lines for "incompatible" phones, so I thought is post this.
Bought unlocked iPhone X and started using it with cricket since August 2018, last week when I tried to use another carrier they told me my iPhone is locked. I've already called apple and cricket customer service. apple says they can't unlock network related locks and suggestions I should contact my carrier which is cricket. cricket are play marry go around with me.

For a week now my iPhone X have yet to be unlocked even tho I bought it unlocked in the first place. its so frustrating.Currently case file(YOUR CASE FILE NUMBER IS 2104261731665) Please cricket unlocked my iphone from your network
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 a Samsung Z fold 2. I have not been able to call out or receive calls for 3 days now. I've had Samsung look at the phone and they say it is a carrier issue. I've put a friend's SIM card in my unlocked phone, and hers works in my phone. Cricket can't seem to give me answers. Anyone else??
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
Why is it I pay my bill ALWAYS on the 1st of the month as that's when I get paid but they ALWAYS say it due on a earlier date.? Then I have to pay extra in fees. I had auto pay set up so it would be easier & a little cheaper but they still would take it out earlier & then I would have to pay bank fees as I wouldn't have any money. How can I get my bill due on the 1st of the month?
