AT&T owns cricket so why does cricket lag behind AT&T in service offerings. We've been asking for e-sim support for three plus years. I don’t understand why cricket is unable to add this feature so iWatch and Apple Dual Number (eSIM) are not offered. I could even understand if there was a $10 extra change to support but the technology is not difficult. It's amazon all the other prepaid providers (Sprint, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Verizon and AT&T) offer the esim support. I get it takes time but it appears this is strategy to move customer to AT&T, but what it does is force customer to move to T-Mobile for esim technology. T-Mobile offers 4 lines for $100 with esim support. Cricket, please listen to your customers and solve this issue or we will be faced to move to a different provider.
Won't send text messages, says Cricket here! we are sorry but your text message failed. Your destination not supported from your current location. I'm in Baja CA, Mexico and trying to text someone in the USA.However I CAN respond to text messages and they go through. I have the all everything unlimited plan. Any ideas or solutions would be apreciated... contacted Cricket wireless support and they couldn't figure out why... no help.
I am wanting to add personal ringtones and assign to some of my contacts. I have used a ringtone app and have downloaded a few. I go to a contact and click on the option to 'Set ringtone' which takes me to the availble ringtones that came with the phone. The last option in this list is "+ Add ringtone". I click on it and it opens the folder where I stored my downloaded ringtones. I click on the ringtone I want to add which closes the folder and takes me back to the list of available ringtones but the one I selected is not added to the list.
WE ARE BEYOND FRUSTRATED!! Two weeks ago, our Wi-Fi calling just shut off. We had been with ATT for 24 years - always had Wi-Fi calling when it became available. We switched to Cricket. We had it for a few weeks and it just switched off. When we go to enable Wi-Fi calling, we receive an error.It say: “ACCESS DENIED - You don’t have permission to access http://www.cricketwireless.com/v1/wificalling/subtoken/ on the server. Reference# 18.4505e8ac.1613195266.29835f5”We have spoke to 4 reps on 611 over the issue. We went through the trouble shooting playbook every single time! Take out Sim Card, put sim card back in. Clear out Network settings. Restart Phone. Put phone in airplane mode - get data off of your Wi-Fi. Turn Wi-Fi off - get data of of phone. Update iPhone to 14.4 software,ect… TOTAL INSANITY to have to go through FOUR times. One rep gave us the customer service number to Apple. The tech said the key to our problem is in the error message - cricketwireless denied you access no
I am beginning the process of divorce, and I was wondering if Cricket keeps logs of messages and/or calls that could be subpoenaed if needed? If so for how long are they kept? Also, if texts are kept is it just the number of who was texted, or is it full messages? Thanks!
HiI am a very happy CricketWireless customer. I think the service, coverage, speed and price is great. However I am really missing to be able to use my phone outside of USA, Mexico and Canada. I am from Europe and go there at least once a year, and it is just frustrating to have to opt for some cash cards while travelling. As part of ATT, I cannot see why CricketWireless can add international roaming as an paid option. I would not mind adding it as an additional service for the month I am travelling. Please CricketWireless, can you step into the future world and offer something global.I am also surprised that Norway is not on the list of 35 countries I can call or text to. I tried another carrier in the US, and had to switch back to Cricket within 2 weeks. Please dont make me look for other carrier again.
I deleted by mistake the number of the voicemailit is a 10-digit number which is saved in the Phone app's settingIn my device it is in the following path:Phone (app) > Settings > SIM 2 (I have dual SIM) > More > Voicemail > Voicemail numberThis is where the 10-digit number should appear in full, however, in my case it is just the digit 1, therefore, when I press on '1' in the dial pad to access the voicemail it dials just '1' which goes nowhere.Please help, even though it might be saved in a different location in your device it should still be the same number for all Cricket subscribers
Can a Cricket Wireless representative please give me a logical, reasonable explanation for requiring a subpoena for something that other service providers provide for free? A subpoena for call records...really?You realize that this is something that I was easily able to access on both my phone and online account with my previous service provider, even if I happened to accidentally delete the number(s) listed on my device’s “call logs” section.If I had known six (6) months ago of all the problems that I’d incur after switching to Cricket Wireless, I would’ve just kept paying the extra $20.00 a month and kept my reliable service with a real service provider.Sometimes it’s well worth it to pay the extra money, especially for a service (cellular) in which we all rely on everyday not just for communication, but basically everything. I’ve learned my lesson in being cheap the hard way.BTW:I also thought I’d have better coverage with Cricket, given they use AT&T’s network and it’s reach in
I now have an unlocked Google pixel phone. On my previous phones calls to my Cricket number that were unanswered would go to the voicemail box of my Google Voice number, but now with this new phone I can't do the same call forwarding set up any more. I tried *74 followed by the google voice number but got "we couldn't connect that call"I tried *74 followed by the google voice number followed by #, and got "connection problem or invalid MMI code."How do I set up my Cricket number so that it does this call forwarding when the phone is not answered? Thank you.
If you look at 5g compatible phones, then follow after their branded phones under byop compatible devices on crickets website, it shows the Samsung note 20 ultra 5g, but even with a "4" notation. Follow this down and it specifically says 5g as a compatible feature for this phone. However my unlocked note20ultra 5g isn't working with 5g, while I KNOW we have 5g coverage here. Why is this advertised as working, specifically ok this phone when it's obviously not? Can we call cricket on this and "request" it be activated for our phone?
Two phone calls and a visit to local Cricket office have failed to fix this issue which has surfaced in recent months after more than a year of satisfactory service.Sending via MMS is unreliable. Rarely sends on the first attempt. But apparently I can receive OK.Internet searches suggest the problem is DNS returning an MMS server IP address which is not reachable via WiFi and the public internet. Suggests an override setting for Android which is not possible on iOS. But that provides a hint which usually works: disable WiFi on my iPhone, reboot, and then it seems to reliably send MMS for a few days. But recently has starting having trouble sending SMS too. But no problem messaging to Apple users on iCloud.Would think an unreachable IP address would result in an instant failure, but the failure message takes minutes. Green bar appears across the top of screen, reaches about 95% then hangs for minutes until the error message. This seems to be more of a timeout at the server than unreacha
ANYONE HAVING INTERNET CONNECTION ISSUES, I BELIEVE I FOUND A FIX!Skip to TL;DR if you're just wanting the fix.If you're with Cricket, open letter for you at the bottom.Don't know if anyone else has had this issue, but the last few months I've been having some connection issues. Assumed it was because of my cheap J2 Pure that was the issue so I ignored it thinking nothing could be done until I could replace it. I upgraded to a 2020 5G Galaxy A51 with a new SIM ten days ago and this problem persisted.I could be streaming YouTube or Spotify in the background and at random times one or two apps just completely "lose connection" while the others continue working showing 4G/WiFi.Facebook, YouTube, Google Chrome, Firefox, messenger, one or two of them will just completely lose connection for five to ten minutes randomly while the others continue working and nothing I did would bring them back online.Not closing, not force closing, not rebooting.Started suspecting an issue with Cricket since
I'm disappointed that Cricket only allows a MAXIMUM of 10 people to send a group text to. I know other carriers are not limited like this. I have at times the need to send out a group text to 18 people. This 10 person limit is just an arbitrary limit set by Cricket. If other carriers aren't limited I'm sure technically Cricket could expand the number of recipients.This is just my feedback. I'm sure there are other people that would appreciate this 10 person cap being expanded.
I pay for phone service that USED to be stellar! It’s complete SHIT now! They refuse to help. They are installing 5G bullshit while slowly choking out 4G service all the while CONTINUOUSLY Selling 4G devices touting them as the best of the best! I’m fed the hell up with this! I used to have full bars and no complaints! Now I get 1 if I’m lucky and can’t even send a picture thru a damn text message! I LIVE IN THE SAME PLACE AND YOUR SERVICE HAS GOTTEN SO BAD THAT IM FIXING TO SAY SHOVE IT UP YOUR 5G TOWER THAT IS LITERALLY 5 MILES FROM MY FRONT DOOR! You crooks! Not everyone can afford to run out and buy new $600+ Phones! And what’s worse is y’all haven’t offered to assist customers with these new phones these stupid rich companies are going to require us to have! Get. It. Together.
I havent h0ad it 2 months and it wouldnt stay connected to the internet. Now after updating the screen is black and has a red triangle on it that says device is corrupt and shuts down. It cant be factory reset. Im getting a run around on getting a replacement. I get hung up on or told to do things ive repeatedly done. I just want it replaced and not with another dream.
I purchased the $5 plan yesterday, arrived in country today, trying to call my hotel, I get a pop-up telling me that mobile network is not available. Connect to a wireless network to make a call. I have no bars. Do I need to turn on international roaming in settings? I tried that but got a warning that significant charges may be incurred so I turned it right back off. Please help! Thanks!
