I purchased a phone Samsung s9+. Is working perfectly. The hotspot is working, yet the cricket is not allowing me to purchase that monthly fee for hotspot, the rules states you must choose the right phone to work with that hotspot feature. My phone us working. Yet I'm not allowed to use it, I want to pay the hotspot, so I can use my iPad since my vision is not that great, the cricket is telling me the phone does not qualify. I am a with cricket for past 8 years. I don't understand why can't I just pay the fee for hotspot and let me use it????????
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?
My Normal hotspot usage apx. 10gigs per 7-10 days. I was on vacation (left my phone at home, turned off) and they're trying to charge me for my hotspot use like a normal month. I got back and the 1st day they're telling me, I'm out of hotspot data. So I pay it and get another 10gigs. Boom they cut it off in 2 days. I'm not sure what kind of racket cricket is running, but I filed an official complaint with FCC. If they're doing this to you I suggest you do the same. I'm calling the Pennsylvania Attoney Generals office in the am as well. This looks criminal from my house and I happen to know a thing or 2 about a thing or 2.
I just got my cricket account and new phone with card to choose my plan I chose the $40 plana none of it working
I got my new cricket phone I bought the phone and service payment card from Fred Meyer I followed the directions to activate it they never works I can't even call 611 with it it says my number is suspended I don't even and it says when you look at your phone information that the phone number is unknown I'm very frustrated and need to get this fixed does anyone know what is going on
So, the cricket plan description says that phone plans have 5g included with the service but I've only ever had 4g, my phone is less than 2 years old and I have terrible service in the middle of town 1M of download and upload speed at best, why is that and why am I not getting 5g? I initially put this in conversation but it pinned me as more of a question/complaint.
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
I have been with cricket wireless for over 2 years now. I have bought three phones from there authorized cricket stores. And I have changed plans and for the past year have been on there unlimited max plan. What amazes me is the total lack of customer appreciation. I have never seen a company that will charge multiple fees and makes there phone prices higher to the loyal customers who want to switch phones but stay with cricket. Why can't cricket give discounts to those customers who choose to stay with them as a company. It's time for a new phone. Because of the lack of any common business practice I will happily being choosing another provider. If you treat loyal customers worse then your new customer why would anyone become loyal.
Hi, I got my new cricket wireless LG Stylo 3 two days ago and am getting used to it. I've never had an Android phone before. I have three problems going on right now:1. When I started my phone, I noticed that I had a TOOLS folder. Then this morning it disappeared. I can't find it anywhere.2. Being a Mac person, I went to create a new tool folder and then I noticed that I can't move my apps around at all. They are stuck in one place so I couldn't move anything and I was unable to create any folders. What to do? And why did the TOOLS folder disappear? They must be related.3. And lastly, I am unable to set up visual voicemail. It starts to and stops in the process. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you, Martha

My question is what would be best. Keep my phone as a single line and open a new account in her name with 3 phones or add her 3 phones to my account? Any suggestions Todd O
I've just noticed this in the past couple of days, but I am no longer able to log in to wifi outside of my home. Usually when I am out, I can connect to free wifi by tapping on the connection and then sometimes it will take me to the Log-In page of that company where I can fully connect to it. Otherwise, I don't have full access to the internet. I noticed that before it was the Cricket Wi-Fi Manager that would bring up the log in screen but it is no longer doing that. I noticed that its not an issue with the company/business, so it has to be some error on my end. Does anybody have any advice on this? I don't want to keep using my mobile data when I can't connect to the wifi.
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.
I can call out but nobody can call me. Inbound calls immediately get a message saying my voicemail has not been setup, and my phone never rings. I get no mobile data connection at all. I have used online support topics, verified my IMEI is compatible, spoken to a dozen phone support people at Cricket, reset Network Connections and verified correct APN settings, been to Sprint and called Sprint to verify my device was properly unlocked. Nobody can tell me why my Cricket service does not work. I paid for service I cannot use. This is beyond frustrating and I am very annoyed with the lack of solutions to what shouldnt even be an issue.
Every day I work during the day my cell phone periodically keeps losing service at work. When I check the coverage map their shouldn’t be any drop in cell phone service but it keeps happening. It usually doesn't fix it self until I am about 5 miles to home. I need to know if this is a phone issue or service issue, thanks.
Why haven’t I had any service in my area and surrounding areas. My family and friends who also have cricket and at&t have been deal with no service since Friday. We live wilder and other surrounding areas and having no service. Can you guys please fix whatever is going on with that cell towers please
We will be going on a cruise in Europe and have the ships internet package. we don’t care about making calls but is it possible to send/receive texts? We both have android phones (Samsung and Moto) but i noted when I tried to test if able to receive texts in airplane mode with Wi-Fi on, you had to turn on WI-FI calling. I’m trying to figure out if turning on WI-FI calling so we could get our texts would work in another country or if we just need to stick with emails. Thanks.
