Late last night (02/06) at 2 am I received a text from Cricket stating that: "This device is not eligible for activation on the Cricket network. Cricket's High-Definition voice network requires use of a compatible device..." The next morning, less than 12 hours later, my call, text and mobile data was promptly shut off. I'm just at a lost for words. In the course of less than 12 hours, my phone is unusable on their network. I currently have a unlocked Oneplus 7 Pro. When I bought the phone last year, I made sure that it would work with Cricket, who uses the GSM band. The phone has high-definition voice over network, and voLTE. It's a 4G LTE phone. Everything checks out. I should have been able to use the phone for awhile on their network. I've honestly loved Cricket with their cheap, (at least in my location) reliable service, unlimited talk/text and data. So to say the least, I'm pissed off. I'm writing this here to ask if others are having the same problem or heard of this. For now, I've called Cricket, and drove out today to talk to someone in person. They all told me the same thing, "we are cancelling the 3G service" and vague information on their BYOD program. Once I gave them my information and IMEI number, they all said that everything checks out and the phone meets all requirements to run on their network, but for some reason my 500 dollar, unlocked, to spec phone, doesn't work. They literally can't tell me why. I'll be switching to a new carrier ASAP as I need my phone for work and everyday life. I am truly shocked with the route Cricket has gone and how today has turned out.
