I am using the standalone Cricket (Netgear) hotspot device and I keep getting SSL errors that keep some websites from loading at all and others only after repeated retries. I’ve tried it with different browsers and get the same problem. I also have problems loading some programs in streaming apps on my ROKU, getting some variation of the message that there was a problem and to try again later. It would not surprise me to learn that these were also SSL problems preventing a secure connection with the streaming service. I don’t have any of those problems using the same browsers and ROKU with my traditional ISP. Any suggestions?
I have 4 lines with cricket, 2 are actual cricket phones and neither of them are able to use wifi calling. Keep getting the oops error message after we enter the address. I've contacted support several times and they have been unable to resolve. I went to the store and got a new Sim card for on of them and that didn't work either. More than a little frustrated at this point. Not sure what the problem is, we've checked the IMEI number, checked the address. Any other ideas?Thanks
I just switched to Cricket. Got a free Alcatel Verso. I live where there is No Cell Service. I do have DSL and Wifi.I need to be able to text via wifi. I used to be able to do it on my Droid mini, with verizon. That phone broke, and they dont make them anymore. (I really liked it too)I dont want some "chat" "phone number". Any Ideas?Thanks
The list of issues I have with Cricket keep growing by the day. Cricket tells me that my BYOD phone is not compatible with the hotspot feature, yet every month since April 2020 I have used hotspot. I called on 10/08/2020 to add an extra 15GB hotspot to my line. The representative allowed me to pay $10.00 and then told me my phone isn't compatible, and the $10.00 would be a credit on my account. I then had to place a complaint with the BBB and after a month someone from corporate refunded the $10.00, however, in doing so they caused my account to be suspended. I used the $10.00 and only paid $100.00 toward my bill that was due on 10/22/2020. On 10/28/2020 Cricket stated they refunded the $10.00 to my account which my bank account only shows a reversal of $0.00. My phone lines were disconnected without notice during a hurricane. I was left with no service for hours until I called the automated phone line and activated bridge pay. I did not have to make any payment to activate bridge pay.
My gf is accusing me of being on the phone when she calls because the phone sometimes rings differently. She claims it has a long double first ring. Whatever that means. I googled it and told her it's just Cricket trying to find a tower to connect to but she doesn't believe me because Verizon does the double ring according to her. Is it true that there is a different ring callers hear if I'm on a call already? Is this a feature something I can change?
Im also having signal issues with my phone now for the last 2 days. The phone will lose service randomly and I will only be able to make emergency calls and can send emails over wifi. I can't text or call and can't receive any return. I have tried power cycling phone, taking the sim card out and putting it back in and turning phone back on. What else can I try to get service?
WE have in home wireless so we don't need hot spot but we want to tether our teens phone to our home computer so we can keep her safe she has a Samsung galaxy Sol 2 how do we do this, the rep I spoke with at a cricket store said this could happen!!!
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?
I just did the math. The LG fortune 4 would be $0 for new customers. It would be $99 for me, a reliable and returning longtime customer. It is originally $139. A $39 savings for a loyal customer is horrible. But then you add the $25 upgrade fee id have to pay. That makes for a grand total of $14 in savings for me. So to review, a new customer saves $139 and I save $14. The question is why is there no actual savings for existing customers? And please don't give me the referral crap. No one knows enough people to sustain a steady savings with that program.
I currently have a Google device that is rolling out universal RCS support but do to cricket not having the pixel family in it's supported devices it's causing issues with my device. That being said are there plans to implement the pixel series into support devices or am I going to have to switch to another service? Coming from a Cricket Employee here.

Hi! I have a Galaxy S7 Edge phone that was running my mobile hotspot just fine this morning but now all of a sudden when I turn it on, it says I don't have it in my plan. I then proceeded to upgrade to the $60 plan and still get the same message when I try to turn on the hotspot. I am so confused right now :(
I have a Cradlepoint cellular modem that I am interested in using on your system in the area of Rush, NY 14543.I checked the IMEI and it says the device is compatible with your "Data Only" services and I am interested in the 20GB/$35 plan.I have read your AUP "Prohibited Data Uses" and I want to see if my proposed use is acceptable. I understand the reason for the prohibition of continuous, full time or dedicated data connections if the application occupies significant bandwidth.My application would involve an outbound continuous data stream of 24kbps to a specific server. Inbound data would be only connections initiated from the server (rarely done once established) to adjust or reset the device. This will be the only application I will run on this device.The application does require use of TCP ports in the 7200-7300 range to communicate to/from the server. I need to be sure your network does not block these ports.Given the fact that my bandwidth will never exceed 0.030Mbps, I b
I live in a rural area, and I have checked the coverage map for my exact home location. It shows that I should be able to get 3G and LTE coverage. However, I've had issues with other providers (also showing I can get decent coverage), and I get no bars at all.I am wondering; IF my I buy service and my phone does not work at my house... will I be able to get a refund for the plan and sim card fees?
