I purchased a Samsung Gaxaly A51 5G from my local Cricket store in Hutchinson, KS.I know I don’t live in the 5G service area, however, I went to the Wichita KS area which is showing to be a 5G low band area on the coverage map. While I was in the area, my service Icon never changed off of LTE, I was expecting maybe to see a 5GE or even 5G.So my question is do I need a sim card, or a different APN setting other than what was on the phone when it was pulled out of the box.
Forced to buy Cricket 5G phone
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!
Hotspot, not so hot
I use the “unlimited data & hotspot” services and once working, the hotspot seems to work well, but - for some reason, every month, when I renew my service (with autopay) my hotspot does not work... it shows that the data is there and paid for, but my phone (iPhone 6s+) will not use it... until I call cricket and they do something that then, activates it. And, of course, you have to go down every avenue to speak to a human. Do other people have to go through this? Any suggestions?
so i brang my at&t phone to cricket and my data doesnt work well i usually have to either turn the phone on and off or airplane mode , i contacted cricket and they refreshed the signal and said the carrier or phone updated itself and after while the data went again it all start once i hit 7.2 gb out of 10 gb on my phone was wondering is this the way its soppose to be or is it because i brang my own phone to cricket ,by the way great cusyomer service they where so kind i was impressed ..
I am not able to file a phone claim via Asurion
I have a cracked phone and I managed to separate my screen from the rest of the phone and can not access anything. I tried filing a claim through Asurion and I was told my information was inaccurate and was not able to file the claim. I’m not sure what to do.
Hotspot not working
We recently purchased the Cricket Icon phone which is listed as a hotspot compatible device as well as the unlimited more plan. However, when I attempt to turn on the hotspot it says I need to add that feature to our plan. I went in store and they could not help because again, that feature is listed already on our plan. They referred me to customer service and customer service told me to go to a store to resolve the issue. I feel lied to and cheated as basically everyone I spoke to just told me there's nothing that can be done. Is this phone hotspot compatible or not because the website says it is and every rep I spoke to says all phones sold in stores now are hotspot compatible as well. Please help.
Cricket remotely locked my brand new Samsung Galaxy S10+ factory unlocked!?
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.
Data not working
For the last 2 months my data has not been working. Data is being deducted from my account as usage, but no websites or social media apps will load/update when I try to use my data. Even when a new month starts and my data is replenished, I still cannot access websites or any social media. Why is this happening? The same thing is happening with the other 2 lines I have. Did cricket data change or slow down to non existent?
10GB plan has slow data speed?
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.

PLEASE update your website on Eligible Phones for Mobile Hotspot
I recently upgraded my plan to the unlimited Ultimate + hotspot…. first checked the website to be sure that my moto g power was eligible for hotspot and it said it was. Now I find out that it in fact is not eligible via one of your online chat agents. My phone was purchased directly from Motorola, not a carrier specific phone. So please, make this more clear on your website. It was nice of your agent to remind me that I’m eligible for a device upgrade, but unfortunately, that doesn’t make up for the fact that the phone I have is relatively new and replacing it now would be a giant waste of my money.
