Recently I upgraded from the 50 dollar plan to the 60 dollar unlimited plan and it seems like my data speeds run so much slower. The internet doesn’t run very fast not only on one areal but everywhere i go. I spoke with a rep and he was trying to help when we got disconnected and now when I try to get an agent it’s saying support is now closed. Which is ridiculous since I was just speaking with someone. I also haven’t had lte data at all for the passed two days.
lte service is so slow sonce 5g came to town
Back before 5G, the lte service was so fast in most places, and okay in others. Nowadays lte service is horrible, so slow to tune of 1-4mbps downloading. Upload is like 1mbps. I know, reset network settings. Be close to towers. Use fast phone. Have plan with high speed rating, which I have. Nothing solves issue. Seems I’m not alone as I browse this forum. How many others experiencing this same issue? I’m in the Philadelphia suburbs and sometimes had speed of 70mbps downloading before 5G came around. This seems like I’m paying for no -throttling and yet am throttled at less than the throttled speed. Been this way for months now. Considering switching to another carrier to get faster speeds and a new 5G phone, which seems to be the end game AT&T and Cricket seems to want.
SICK AND TIRED
IM SICK OF CARRIERS WHO DO NOT ALLOW MMS OVER WIFI BECAUSE SOME OF US WHO ARE IN A SO CALLED RURAL AREA CANNOT SEND OR RECEIVE MESSAGES WHEN WIFI CALLING IS OUR ONLY OPTION BECAUSE CARRIERS REFUSE TO BUILD TOWERS IM ONLY 10 MINUTES AWAY FROM AN AT&amp;T SIGNAL I ONLY HAVE ONE CARRIER OPTION AT MY HOME WHICH IS CSPIRE AND THEY DO NOT SUPPORT voLTE OR WIFI CALLING AND THAT IS A REQUIRMENT FOR ME AND THEY RIGHT OUT SUCK I SIGNED A CONTRACT WITH THEM BUT BROKE IT AFTER IT WAS UNRELIABLE SERVICE EVERY WEEK THEY WERE DOWN AND WOULDNT REIMBURSE US EVERY MONTH THEY ALSO DO NOT TELL YOU THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE THOSE FEATURES WHEN EVERY OTHER CARRIER IN AMERICA HAS THOSE FEATURES I HAVE ALSO BEEN FIGHTING AT&amp;T FOR OVER A DECADE TO BUILD A TOWER IN THIS CITY I HAVE MOVED A TOTAL OF 4 TIMES AND THERE SIGNAL ALWAYS SUCKS WITH JUST 1 BAR WITH SPARADIC SERVICE OR NO BARS AT ALL WHEN ARE CARRIERS GOING TO REALIZE THAT TOWERS DO NOT WORK THEY ALSO WANT TO BUILD TOWERS IN AREAS THAT DONT NEED
Ok this is BS we went to the store and talked to the sales people we were at&t for many years. We heard avout the deals that were less money and owned by at&t. We expressed the only reason we were with at&t was we got coverage where we kive and travel but your offer was less money. They said no problem the coverage is exactly the same sense they are owned by at&t. This was bull. Our phone will not switch mobile networks and service areas are not the same. I said I want to switch back to at&t and need the phones unlocked now they tell me I have to be with them for 6 months before they will unlock the phone. That was never discussed when we purchased and they were told up frount if they do not work we were not staying. False sales and very rude customer service when I called. They just said I need to go to the store and they will explain. In lock our phones so we can move on sense you can not provide what you said the service would provide.
why does Cricket LIE about 5G Service?
Based on my current experience, and the information I read in the community forum, Cricket LIED to all their customers.We are told by Cricket that we can "bring our own device" that is vetted by Cricket to be 5g compatible. Yet as soon as we switch to Cricket and activate our 5g phone...we find out that our 5g compatible phone IS NOT 5G COMPATIBLE with Cricket. We are then told that only Cricket phones can get 5g service.Guess what? This is considered FALSE ADVERTISING, and has been illegal for years. So how does Cricket, as well as all other wireless companies get away with illegal practices?
Anyway to change the 'order' of phone numbers on the account
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
O2 UK not receiving texts.
HiUp until Aug 29th, my brother who lives in England was receiving my texts without any issues. After that date he's not received any of the texts I've sent him, but I can receive texts from him. My sister who is on the same network as him (O2 UK) received the test text I sent her. I also tried texting him from the 3 other phones on my plan and he never received any. He went and had his sim card changed to see if that would solve it, but he's still not getting them. I haven't changed my plan or had anything else added to it, so what would be causing this?
Want to add hotspot
To whom it may concern. I have spent countless hours trying to understand why I cannot add hotspot on my Nokia 7.1. I have recently seen the answer on this forum from a cricket employee stating " the phone must have two apn's in order for usage to be tracked" okay I think well at least that's an answer. I would of appreciated that response with one of my multiple calls to cricket. However out of curiosity I go into my settings and low and behold my phone has two apn's. Please give the people what they want. Your selection of phones doesn't offer ANY of the popular mid-range devices ie: Moto g7, pixel 3a , Nokia 7.1 to mention a few. I do commend you for having the Nokia 3.1 and the g7 variant Supra I think it is but not the same. I have been a 4 line customer for almost 5 years. I have never received a discount on a phone mainly because I have never liked your offering. I've spent almost 7k with cricket is there anything that can be done that would allow me to pay for a service that I
10GB plan vs Unlimited
I used to be on the 5 line grandfathered plan for $100. Cricket made me change (July) and since then my data speeds haven’t been great. First I went to the Unlimited $55 plan (4 lines for $100) during peak times the data became unusable, <1Mbps. In the Bay Area and then traveling to Vegas, Dallas and NYC I tried switching to the 10GB plan as in theory the data isn’t slowed during peak times. I am still seeing data slow <5 Mbps during busy times with LTE full bars on a iPhone XR and an Android with 5G. Non busy times I’ll hit about 30-60Mbps. I went to this plan even though it’s 4 lines for $110, $10 more a month thinking there’s no slowdown so said the Cricket CSRAnyone have an opinion on this? I was trying to avoid paying $130 for the Unlimited Premium w/ 4 lines.
I recently was trying to sell my old Motorola moto g7 but my grandmother insisted that I should give it to my dad in Mexico. Is there a way that my old phone could switch to another company in Mexico or is the moto phone exclusive to Cricket Wireless?I don't want to pay for an unlimited plan when my dad has worry about his data going over the limit because it is limited when a user travels to another region. So the question is, is there a third party company that could use the moto phone for service in Mexico or is the moto phone stuck with Cricket Wireless?

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.
I purchased a Lg style 6 phone and used my insurance because it was damaged. Now customer service has said because I used the insurance and paid $75 my insurance was dropped. After reading the insurance guidelines it read you have up to 3 claims within a 12 month period to still be under warranty. Every time I ask for a manager I'm put on hold then get disconnected.
Cricket is the worst advertiser of promotions when it comes to wwe I have ever seen. Their marketing stinks. Last year they had bayley out by me for a store signing. Free. Totally walk in meet her take photo and she signs. They don’t promote it. Wwe doesn’t promote it. If I didn’t hear about it because I was working the event at the venue for the wwe show thAt night I’d not have been able to meet her let alone know about it. That. Is. Pathetic. So now it’s a year and change later. They have a virtual meet and greet online to sign up to meet ironically bayley. They post it the day before the event. It was sold out within one hour of advertising. That is also pathetic. They didn’t plan for the amount of people wanting to meet her...or else there are people booking multiple names for more time to talk to her. And I KNOW that is the case. Two friends independent of each other have showed me the screenshots of their multiple setups with Different names and numbers. All the virtual stuff is
Phone number unable to receive texts or calls
My phone can not receive texts or calls, for the third time in the past 2 months. The first time it happened I ordered a new phone directly from Cricket assuming it was a hardware issue as my previous phone was 4 years old, but the issue persisted to the new phone.I can send texts and make outgoing calls, but my phone number can not receive them. I can call or text my wife, who is also on cricket and sitting right next to me, and it goes through with no issue. When she calls or texts me back I receive nothing. A few hours later the text will come through.The last two times the customer support person "reset my network" to fix it, but it should not keep happening and I need this fixed permanently.Everything else works fine on my phone. Apps all work in real time, Facebook messenger and video chat all work fine, but anything running through my phone number is dead.
Out of country, Wifi Calling has stopped working.
I have an LG X Charge, so it’s an oldie, but my plan is still active. I need Wifi Calling to be on in order to receive SMS for various verifications. I am not in a country that allows roaming so I unfortunately don’t have the option to use that (can’t afford those charges!). Wifi calling has not been active today and yesterday.I’ve tried resetting my router, airplane mode, resetting my phone, resetting my network settings, making sure I’m on a 2.4ghz wifi connection, changing to a different wifi connection, and taking the sim card out and putting it back in. None of these have worked thus far. Any advice, or knowledge of an outage right now?Edit: Also to note, I did check and my phone is updated. There is nothing new for me to install. Wifi calling was working swimmingly up until yesterday. I’ve been in this country for a few months now.
