I've been a happy cricket customer for a few years now. Job changes made mobile hotspot increasingly attractive/important. Using this list of eligible phones (https://www.cricketwireless.com/support/mobile-wifi/hotspot-eligible-phones.html#), I went out and purchased a Galaxy S10. I then upgraded my phone plan to include hot spot. But it wouldn't work. After a few hours of frustrating conversations with customer support, I was informed that BYOD (bring your own device) Android phones are not eligible for hotspot. The list says they are. I was told the only solution was to switch to an Apple phone or buy an S10 straight from Cricket. I can find no place on Cricket's website that provides this critical piece of information. If this is in fact the case (please verify, I'm not confident in the customer service rep's answer), Cricket, can you please make this apparent - I and others relied on that information to make large purchasing
I was told I had 7 days to add insurance and said ok I will call. Well I call and they will not say I had to go in to store. I was never told this. It is 4:00 and the store closes at 5:00 ( I live an hr or more from store). When I told chat representative I didn't have time to go in he said they don't close for 3 or 4 more hrs. I said no it is Sunday. Had I known I had to go in I would have earlier this week as one of the person with a phone went out of town fri so I don't even have access to that phone. I was told I could over phone but no and now I have no protection so I will probably be going back to my old service when my month is up as this is no way to start off with being told the wrong info and not having any coverage.
I am a new customer and am ready to leave Cricket. No one speaks or understands English in customer service to a degree where they can assist me. So I am hoping someone here can. Cricket must block shortcut texts. I need to resolve this is there a way that I can do it myself since customer service is useless.
Neither me or my grandma are able to use wifi calling.We bought our phones from cricket very recently and gave been having this problem from the start. They are cricket phones, with cricket SIM cards, etc. Not once has WiFi calling worked. I have researched this and called support and no solution was found. I've tried everything I can. I've checked and our phones are on the supported devices list. Wifi isn't an issue. It works fine. Wifi calling and texting used to work fine when we used Verizon. We live somewhere without good cell service so my grandma can't use her phone to call anyone when she's home.
Neither phone seems to be transmitting a hotspot wifi signal. My test: 1.Turned on hotspot on 6s2. Made sure hotspot was off on 113. turned on wifi on 11 but 6s hotspot never listedDid the reverse with same disappointing result.Not listed on computer wifi either.Reset both phones and repeated. Same disappointing results. HELP!!!
My wifi calling is not turning on. I set the emergency address but it still won't turn on. It says address is verified and wifi calling will turn on in a few minutes but days later it still not working. It used to work until covid crap happened and couldn't pay bill. When I finally was able to turn it back on it wouldn't work after that.
The topics here are all about selling. Hey we don't have service since 1/8/20. On 1/9 I called and spoke with Ana since she acted like she had no clue about anything I asked for her supervisor. I spoke with Ingrid who told me that service would be fully restored on 1/9/20. Well, it has NOT been restored. This is a huge inconvenience as I don't have a phone while driving or when not with another company's Wi-Fi. Even from my home Wi-Fi or another company, the calls are either very bad or dropped unexpectedly. We MUST be fully reimbursed for this mess! If I wasn't so busy with so much I would take the time to find another phone company.. Cricket is very messed up.
Recently went with cricket, the problem: every time i try to setup voicemail by holding down the one key, the recording tells me that my voice mailbox is not setup, goodbye and then hangs up. How in gods name am i suppose to set it up if it want give me the option after holding down the key.
We have several phones and all work fine except one. On that phone it will ring if someone calls from a cell phone and work... but if they call from a landline it goes straight to voice mail. I have wasted time talking to a person in a cricket store, and call customer service 3 times and gotten no solutions. We have swapped the sim cards with another phone and when we do the phone that isn't work will work with the other sim card in it, but the sim card from the phone that isn't working will have the same problem in any phone you put the card into. So we know it isn't the phone.
Heads up, this is not a question. It's a complaint!I am sick of this dropped data mess!! I am going to switch to another company on my next paycheck.For TWO FULL WEEKS my data has been cutting on and off. And for a space of time it was completely off!! Can barely make calls, texts or use internet!! Sometimes not at all!! I had to borrow a hot spot from someone to operate my phone by Wi-Fi!I have Facebook messaged about this problem, left angry posts on their page, called about the problem, gone to Cricket store THREE times.....they reset the APN or they disconnect my phone from the tower (because Cricket CLAIMS it's a tower problem, if that's even true) and then reconnect it again, made a case for my problem and then last night claimed the problem was solved (and it seemed it was until the data dropped, AGAIN, for the millionth time and would only allow "Emergency Calls"). I even got a $10 credit because of this issue. Should've gotten more!The repetitiveness of this is angering me. I
I have been using the same phone number with Cricket for years. I use two step authentication for Facebook. Unfortunately, because I clear out my browser history, cache and cookies upon exit, I have to enter a six digit code that is sent to my cell phone before Facebook will allow me to log in.As of the last four days, I stopped receiving the text messages to my cell phone. I have verified my identity by sending both a copy of my photo ID, and photo of me holding up a sign with a special number Facebook gives me to write on the sign showing it is me who holds the actual Facebook account. It has been four days. NOTHING.I am unable to get into my Facebook account. I found out there is other ways, such as Google Authenticator as an option, but at this point, if I cannot get into my account, I am unable to change the options. I am frustrated and was told this may have something to do with the cell phone provider, and I want to solve this issue.Now even when I download a new browser and try
My BUSINESS number was ported our 10/25/19 to H2O wireless. Cricket has NOT been of any help! I’ve called countless amounts of times went they are telling me to be patient. How can I be patient when I am not making ANY MONEY????? I’ve talked to countless supervisors and CSR they are treating me like I’ve done this to my own account!!!! Tomorrow is day 6 without my phone. DAY 6 without making any money!!! Cricket DOES NOT CARE!!! When I get my number back. I AM LEAVING THIS SH*THOLE!!!
I have been a loyal Cricket customer for 20 years now. This year my service is so bad it's reminding me of the early years. I drive all over the KC metro daily for my job. I rely on my GPS and Pandora DAILY. Rarely do I get more than 2 bars of service, and sometimes I can't even get a map to pull up at all, which leaves me stranded or wandering aimlessly until it decides to load. I've called customer service multiple times about it. One time I was told that a tower was down in my area. Another time I was told it was probably my phone that was the problem, and was told to reset network settings. I have 4 lines on my account, with 4 different types of phones, and they ALL have 1-2 bars MAX. This is unacceptable. As I have perused this community forum, I see that coast to coast people are having the same issues. What's going on???
I am led to believe the Cricket is crashing phones on their network purposely, To force customers to purchase new phones. I went to pay my bill, and the representative kept trying to ask me did I wish to purchase a new phone, when I clearly stated my purpose there was to ONLY pay my bill. Recently, my phone has been randomly crashing and having glitches for no apparent reason. I'm posting this for other users with this issue to take note and complain also.
I've had cricket unlimited data/talk/text plan on the same LG phone and same SIM card for the past two years. Plan is always paid each month on autopay & never late.I ordered a brand new Samsung Galaxy S10+ 128gb factory unlocked phone directly from Samsung. Waited a few days before I put my old SIM card into the S10+ phone. Cricket has locked it.Of course now that it has already happened to me, I'm discovering it is something that happens to Cricket customers frequently. I could have avoided it, had I known. It never occurred to me they were capable of doing it remotely.Also AIO (cricket wireless) wrote over my OTA software update capabilities with some AIO constipated version. I now am no longer able to receive those ota android security updates directly like I did the first two days I had the phone.
