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.
We switched two phones from Verizon and my work phone from Straight Talk all over to Cricket. All three are different versions of the iPhone, the newest being an iPhone 11 and the oldest being an iPhone 6. We immediately noticed texts messages can be extremely delayed, some never sending or being received at all. This happens on a daily basis. All phones have iOS up to date and all phones were troubleshooted with everything under the sun found on the internet. We also noticed things that use WiFi are now slower (also thoroughly troubleshooted), and we don’t get Ring doorbell notifications until two minutes after someone leaves our front stoop. Is this SIM card related? Server related? And ultimately, is this something that can be fixed? If not we will need to switch immediately, as my work phone often requires a prompt response to text messages.
I have 4 Pixel 4a’s on my account, yet one will not activate Wifi Calling. It receives an “Error Identified contact us at 611” error message. The BYOD Cricket List Found Here states that the Pixel 4a is fully supported. Support claims the Pixel 4a does not support Wifi Calling and that list and phone compatibility is subject to change at anytime. We tried a new SIM and it still received the same error message. If I take my wife’s SIM out and stick my SIM card in the phone, Wifi Calling will work. I think it is a Cricket issue, but they are claiming the Pixel 4a is an unsupported phone, yet my other 3 Pixel 4a’s on the account have no issues with wifi calling.Any ideas or suggestions?Thanks
Just wondering why my note 20 is not compatible. I purchased from Samsung about 6 months ago. I put the imei in the search and says it won't work. Also have a note 10 that comes up the same. These are top notch phones and are 4g lte phones. Why is cricket doing this and are they going to make everyone purchase a cricket phone now?
Cricket is the worst - I bought a new phone last week - only because the one I had purchased 6 months earlier stopped working due to Cricket changes. This was a phone that was approved by Cricket as a good phone 6 months earlier by checking the IMEI number on their web site!!The phone purchases last week went relatively wellTrying to buy/upgrade another phone and Cricket just keeps telling me there are credit card issues. They keep telling me it is not their issue and I should call the bank. I called the bank three times - they said there were no issues - I even contacted the fraud department and they verified that a transaction came thru and it was approved and they gave me the approval code.Trying to work thru the issue with Cricket and they won’t do anything. They just end the chat when they feel like they have told me enough times that it is the bank problem. Tried to call a couple of local Cricket stores - the said they don’t have the phone I want - I should call other stores.

See commercials on tv for free phone's for switching...Why the hell dont y'all have free phone's for loyal customers who have been with you for year's even though sometimes customer services sucks..Some store personal sucks and rude...About ready to switch to another carrier..
We have five members of the family, five lines with cricket. They only let 3 of us have upgraded phones. The other two family members are stuck with their old old phones ! We get this message at checkout: We cannot ship to the address you entered. Looks like you've reached the maximum number of orders allowed for one address.
My phone is listed as not compatible but it meets all of the requirements. It’s 4G LTE and HD Voice-capable. I’ve actually set it up and used it with WiFi calling. The phone is only a few years old.There must have been some mistake at Cricket. How to I get Cricket to revisit this phone and update the compatibility list to include it?

Hello,I am having trouble finding the location to which Visual Voicemail exports files. Checked Music, Downloads, other usual suspects to no avail. Tried searching for *.amr files - no luck.Steps:Open Cricket Visual Voicemail app (log in) Select voicemail message of interest Tap the 3 dots in the upper right-hand corner → Export to file A message pops up The message has been exported to: /files/voicemail-<date-time>.amr However, there’s no /files folder in the root of the phone storage or SD card. Searching for it does not provide results either. App version: 220.127.116.11215Phone: Samsung Galaxy S8 (SM-G950U)Android 9
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 just purchased an unlocked S20 FE, direct from Samsung. I have also been using Cricket Wireless for about 3 years now, with an unlocked S9 Plus. However, after putting my SIM card in the S20 FE, I received a message that the device is not compatible with their network. When I made a call to Cricket's customer service, I was told that there is nothing they can do to activate my new phone with their network. Even though Cricket offers the exact same phone for sale, through their website! It seems like Cricket is moving toward forcing their customers to purchase phones through them. Which is a shame, because that is going to force me to do business with a different wireless network.
I pay for the over $60 a month plan for everything and unlimited data yet I can NEVER come t to internet unless I’m at home connected to my local internet provider. This is very upsetting and I would like to speak with someone who can remedy this issues immediately! Can you tell me exactly what I’m paying for each month at this high rate while I can’t even connect to internet on my phone that I have serviced with you Crickett???????? Not a happy customer
WE ARE BEYOND FRUSTRATED!! Two weeks ago, our Wi-Fi calling just shut off. We had been with ATT for 24 years - always had Wi-Fi calling when it became available. We switched to Cricket. We had it for a few weeks and it just switched off. When we go to enable Wi-Fi calling, we receive an error.It say: “ACCESS DENIED - You don’t have permission to access http://www.cricketwireless.com/v1/wificalling/subtoken/ on the server. Reference# 18.4505e8ac.1613195266.29835f5”We have spoke to 4 reps on 611 over the issue. We went through the trouble shooting playbook every single time! Take out Sim Card, put sim card back in. Clear out Network settings. Restart Phone. Put phone in airplane mode - get data off of your Wi-Fi. Turn Wi-Fi off - get data of of phone. Update iPhone to 14.4 software,ect… TOTAL INSANITY to have to go through FOUR times. One rep gave us the customer service number to Apple. The tech said the key to our problem is in the error message - cricketwireless denied you access no
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
So I called in to make a bridge pay. I selected bridge pay in the automated system but at the end after entering my card info it gave me an error message and attempted to transfer me to an agent. It processed my payment but did not apply it as a bridge pay extension and now my services are suspended. I am livid right now!!! I have kids that need to be able to reach me. Your system had an error and I demand my services be restored or I will go with another company. I also will get on every social site and share my experience. This has never happened. Now I have to wait until 9am before I can even speak to someone. That’s 9 hours of no service after I made the payment that I was supposed. I am BEYOND ANGRY!!!
Need clarification on this and ASAP...I need access to call history and SMS texting as well for a phone active on my account. Am I understanding correctly that A COURT ORDERED SUBPOENA is required to obtain call records?? And that text messages aren't saved/cached at all?
I keep getting text messages from Gmail accounts sending sex services and I've done talked to cricket customer service and they telling me that nothing that they can do but change my cell phone number and I've done bought a new phone and changed my cell phone number and same problem. I have done spoken to the police about it and they told me to take cricket to court. I also had court threats over these Gmail messages because it's a chain letters. Cricket better do something or I'm taking it viral where it's known everywhere.
I am getting between 10-20 spam texts and about the same number of spam calls every single day, morning, noon and night. When I called customer service, they wanted me to download the HI-YA app. However it's $25 a year and I think it's b.s. To have to pay that. I have had the same number for the last 20 years. HOW IN THE HELL DO I MAKE IT STOP???? If I can't, and have to resort to changing my number, I'm just gonna go with another provider.
