I have 15 gb of hotspot on my plan…I use it with my laptop.. but I need to connect my printer also..Ive tried to figure out how to do this for longest time and very frustated .. I can not get home internet service where im at so I have to rely on my hotspot to use my laptop and i need my printer to be connected to the same network to utitlize the apps that i need to function with my printer… “Wifi-direct” doesnt allow me to use what i need on my laptop bc i dont have the internet connection..I ran across this article here on Cricket website about mobile hotspot and tethering to be able to connect up to (6) devices at a time using this feature on my phone but there isnt any instructions explaining how to do this !!!“you can use tethering to connect six (6) devices at the same time using Wi-Fi”Anyone care to please tell me how to do this !??
Since “repairs” were made to the cell tower closest to my home about a month ago, I now receive poor to no signal and poor to no service in my home and immediate community. This is unacceptable. I have been in contact with Cricket customer service about this numerous times now and stopped in at the Cricket store on several occasions as well. They all want to blame my phone for the problem. The phone was working just fine before they began tinkering with this cell tower. However, under Cricket’s guidance, I’ve “reset” the network three times and have removed and reinserted the SIM card all to no avail. When I leave my community, I get a consistent 5 bars and blazing 5G service. This is a strong indication to me that the phone is not at fault. In addition, this same problem has affected my immediate next door neighbor who is also on Cricket and another neighbor further down the block who is on ATT. Coincidence? I think not.All the Cricket reps to whom I have spoken have brushed it aside
3 months ago my Blu 4G phone with 265 gig. Worked just fine. Then I get mail and text saying my phone won't work when Cricket drops 3G. Ihd only bought my Blu® phone 6 months before! So my wife decides on her own that she wants a new phone. The next day, my phone quits working. I call, they say my Blu® won't work after they drop 3G. I never had 3G! So now I can't get service unless I buy a new 5G phone from them. I always had a 4G LTE signal on the Blu®! NOW! I have a Cricket 5G phone and it STILL SHOWS 4G LTE.What's with this company? OK. You twisted my arm to buy YOUR 5G PHONE which is receiving 4G LTE!
Newest Netgear HotSpot LM1200 won't activate on CricketWireless? (new product Jan 2021 from Netgear)
The LM1200 is Netgear’s new Hotspot offering and Cricket IMEI checker says they won’t activate it. Verizon & T-Mobile will and ATT doesn’t have an IMEI checker anymore, their support staff said I need to drive to an ATT Store had have them put a SIM in it to determine. The Modem is a CAT 4 LTE modem. What’s going on with Cricket? Just because a modem is 3g capable doesn’t mean they need to can it. What am I missing about the 3g capable devices, will they stop working on LTE too?
Hello everyone. This is my first post. I have had cricket for 8 months. I have the Cricket More plan. About 6 months ago the repaired my neighborhoods only tower which is 6.4 miles away. After that there is only 0-1 bar signal. 1 phone is s22 ultra using AT&T. None of us can use our phones. Around 2:30- 7:00pm cst our phones say Network congested, please call your network operator. And we can't make or receive calls. Phones work everywhere else, and I mean everywhere, like the S. Louisiana swamps. Why oh why won't 4 phones, 3 on cricket and 1 on AT&T work in our neighborhood? I have called Cricket Customer Service multiple times. They say everything is fine. No network outages or slow downs. The AT&T phone does the exact same as the three Cricket phones. Att says same thing as cricket. Well, I was really loving Cricket, but it doesn't pay to pay $71 every month when you can't use your phone where you are at most of the time. Please Cricket, HELP us. We don't want to go ba
I am developing an app that lets me send text messages from the command line. Currently one way but I have planned 2 way conversations. It is basically a scheduled texting app that sends reminders to one of more people now, or anytime in the future. It was working fine, I was getting all the texts I sent out during testing and then last night somehow they became blocked and I can no longer test my app, even if I change email addresses. So it tells me that my account has somehow been blocked of all email texts. Sending and receiving. It's not a bulk texter it's meant for personal use or for other developers that are on a team.. how can I unblock the email texts so that I can continue to develop and even use my app?
I purchased a SamsungA52 on 12/5/21. Received the phone on 12/8/21 and installed the sim on 12/18/21. I went thru the activation process and the phone would not connect to the network. After spending an hour on the phone w/Customer service I was told that the chip was expired and that I needed to purchase a new one. Naturally, I refused and asked that Cricket send me a viable sim card and was told that was not possible. I want to know why. I saw another post on this community where the customer had a similar issue w/a bad sim.and it said that Cricket would be sending a new card. I want the same service.
Awful service. My app to clock in and out of WORK doesn't load most of the time. I can't check my bank account anywhere. Calls and text messages won't go out. I feel like I'm paying for nothing. Might as well carry a brick, it'd be just as useful. I supposedly have unlimited data but I might as well have none at all ever. Taking advantage of poor people who can't afford 100+ a month for Verizon. I thought it'd get better with AT&T but honestly, it's worse.
Does anyone know if I sign up for HBO Max do I lose my $5/month discount for auto payment? I don’t want HBO bad enough to lose my $5 discount. I have called support twice asking about this and they won’t tell me the answer, which is pretty infuriating. You hire people from different countries who don’t understand the question and you don’t train them well enough to answer the question and that’s the face you give your customer when they need help.
Every time I try to set up wifi calling I get the message “Couldn’t set up wifi calling. Try again later in settings.” It has never set up. I have tried for nearly a year. I have a samsung galaxy s10, it’s supposedly compatible. Wifi calling could save me the cost of a wired home phone line, but it doesn’t work. What the hell?I bought a new sim card because I saw that fixed it for someone. It didn’t fix it for me.I have also called customer support about this and again, they are useless. Absolutely useless. Their uselessness makes any problem worse than it was before trying to get help.
I called the customer service to order a new phone to upgrade my current 3g phone on Jan 3rd. I received email confirmation with order number: 2225806324513097 and then shipping confirmation email with a Fedex shipping track number: 551419658808 quickly after that. But when I traced the order on Fedex, it always showed: The delivery date may be updated when FedEx receives the package. I called Fedex many time after that, they told me they never receive the package from cricket yet. I also regularly checked my order status on cricket online and called customer service many times. They always told me to wait and wait, even this order is a 2 business days shipping order. On Jan 10th, my old 3g phone suddenly lost service and when I chat with the customer service online. I was told the new device was activated that caused my old phone lost service. But Fedex didn’t receive the package and deliver it to me yet. How could it be activated? Since then I chatted with customer service online 3-4
I’ve had several people leave me voicemails and it took about 45 minutes for them to show on my phone. Today I had a few people tell me my call was breaking up. I called the local store and was told ATT towers had issues last Friday but thought they had been resolved. I called a friend who said he had problems talking to his son today with the call breaking up
So I started with Cricket wireless… and then we decided to go with a family plan. However my husband’s number is now the ‘dominate’ number even though the account is in my name and I am paying the bill. I wanted to get the mobile hotspot on my number/phone because of car trips with the toddler… however I can only add it to my husband’s number (and he never goes anywhere with the kids lol)Is there any way to change the ‘order’ of the numbers so my number is dominate and I can access the mobile hotspot if I add it to my plan. I do have a mobile hotspot device we got for road trips, but signing up for Cricket’s $10 addon is cheaper than adding data to the device through another carrier. Thank you
