Data Usage Almost Gone
I just paid my bill on September 18, 2022 and I recieved a text message from Cricket stating my Data Usage was getting low and that was within a couple days after paying off my total bill. I pay my total bill on time every month and this same thing happened last month and now a few days later my phone is saying slow date usage and just spins buffering out of control. This is not acceptable, especially when I don't even use their data each month I use my own from my own personal internet at home on my roommates acct. AND WHAT HAPPENED TO UNLIMITED DATA USAGE ANYWAY!!CUSTOMER SERVICE YOU NEED TO FIX THIS MISHAP OR I'M CHANGING MY SERVICE CARRIERS.... I HAVE BEEN A LOYAL CUSTOMER FOR OVER 12+ YEARS YOU CAN LOOK ME UP.... YOU HAVE MY ##... THANK YOU, Pamela Fisher
data stupid slow in denver
Me and my girlfriend both have the cricket dream 5g with the 60 dollar plan. Both of us. Two separate plans. Her phone will be right next to mine. Whenever I do comparitive speed tests with the same testing software, hers is always always faster. Sometimes by a little, most of the time by a lot.Right now I'm getting about 1.1mbps.Without a skip, she gets 6mbps. We are on the same tower. Phones are factory fresh. It doesn't matter where I go this is always the case. This is proof that cricket is throttling whoever they want for really no reason.
wrong email setup by cricket for hbomax
When I bought my new phone and service back in January 2022, the store clerk entered my email incorrectly and it STILL can't verify my email address. She left the W out of my last name. I've been to at least 3 different retail cricket stores and NO ONE CAN FIX THIS!!Please help if you can.
Refer a friend
So 1. I have to watch a freaking video to even learn how to refer a friend? Why does your website not provide enough information on nearly every topic? Your video is slow. I can read words and learn quickly. Unless you make that difficult too. Have a video for those who want to watch it and WORDS for those who don’t. Even those who watch the video need the damn link. Just post the freaking link. Nice and big. Front and center.I have to download the app to refer a friend? That’s stupid and invasive. Do you know that some of us use computers? Yeah, we do. I have to email the link to myself to get it on my computer because of your choices. I don’t like a lot of apps on my phone, which is none of your business. I don’t like being forced into doing things I don’t want to do. I’m going to delete it again. Thank you for wasting my time. You build resentment in your customers with this kind of thing. Even in the app it’s unclear how to do it. Why do you make it so hard? Oh right, you don’t act
Every time I try to set up wifi calling I get the message “Couldn’t set up wifi calling. Try again later in settings.” It has never set up. I have tried for nearly a year. I have a samsung galaxy s10, it’s supposedly compatible. Wifi calling could save me the cost of a wired home phone line, but it doesn’t work. What the hell?I bought a new sim card because I saw that fixed it for someone. It didn’t fix it for me.I have also called customer support about this and again, they are useless. Absolutely useless. Their uselessness makes any problem worse than it was before trying to get help.
HBO Max/$5 auto payment discount
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.
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.
Mobile Hotspot and Tethering
I just discovered that I can use mobile hotspot and usb tethering to provide internet to my tv and my computer and possibly even the router when AT&T's internet is down. I just went through several days without internet, never knowing my phone’s hotspot would give me the internet access I need. Never again. This is awesome.
Awful service. My app to clock in and out of WORK doesn't load most of the time. I can't check my bank account anywhere. Calls and text messages won't go out. I feel like I'm paying for nothing. Might as well carry a brick, it'd be just as useful. I supposedly have unlimited data but I might as well have none at all ever. Taking advantage of poor people who can't afford 100+ a month for Verizon. I thought it'd get better with AT&T but honestly, it's worse.
Insurance;BUYERS WARNING DO NOT BUY!
With being a Loyal Cricket Wireless Customer, and knowing in my working conditions things happen. I opt in for insurance from day 1. Keeping it til here recently, due to new found knowledge. As per my insurance my repair (“I still have the paper literature saying this”) should ONLY cost $40 and be same day. Now upon my attempt to file my claim, is where the truth hit me. No my repair would not be same day, nor the cost be what was Verbally and Printed on the literature. The quoted price was $75,without same day repair. For what I’ve paid into my insurance over the time of having service through yal. Now yal hit people with this,do yal (Cricket Wireless *CW) realize…. For that $75, any ATT Serv phone can be bought at a more convenient loacation. No wait time or anything, and be used. This has gone to show me yal honestly don’t care about customers. As well that y’all will do anything to get these said customers HARD EARNED money. Yal know this Insurance is HOT GARBAGE,nothing but a MONE
WIFI Calling not working all of a sudden
My wifi callling stopped working at 3pm yesterday. I went through troubleshooting with Cricket for 2 hours yesterday until they finally told me that others have reported issues with wifi calling and it seems to be on Cricket’s side. They told me to check with them again in the morning if it is still not working. I tried talking to them again...they tried going through troubleshooting AGAIN and I explained that I was told this is a Cricket issue. They said that they don’t have report of other customers with this issue. OH MY GOD. I just want to know when my wifi calling will be working as that is the only way I can make/receive calls and texts while at home AND at work. Has anybody else had an issue with wifi calling not turning on since yesterday?
Weak 4g and 5g signal with network congestion.
Hello everyone. This is my first post. I have had cricket for 8 months. I have the Cricket More plan. About 6 months ago the repaired my neighborhoods only tower which is 6.4 miles away. After that there is only 0-1 bar signal. 1 phone is s22 ultra using AT&T. None of us can use our phones. Around 2:30- 7:00pm cst our phones say Network congested, please call your network operator. And we can't make or receive calls. Phones work everywhere else, and I mean everywhere, like the S. Louisiana swamps. Why oh why won't 4 phones, 3 on cricket and 1 on AT&T work in our neighborhood? I have called Cricket Customer Service multiple times. They say everything is fine. No network outages or slow downs. The AT&T phone does the exact same as the three Cricket phones. Att says same thing as cricket. Well, I was really loving Cricket, but it doesn't pay to pay $71 every month when you can't use your phone where you are at most of the time. Please Cricket, HELP us. We don't want to go ba

I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY ASSISTANCE. HERE ARE THE SCREENSHOTS SHOWING WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.
Poor to No Signal, Poor Service to No Service
Since “repairs” were made to the cell tower closest to my home about a month ago, I now receive poor to no signal and poor to no service in my home and immediate community. This is unacceptable. I have been in contact with Cricket customer service about this numerous times now and stopped in at the Cricket store on several occasions as well. They all want to blame my phone for the problem. The phone was working just fine before they began tinkering with this cell tower. However, under Cricket’s guidance, I’ve “reset” the network three times and have removed and reinserted the SIM card all to no avail. When I leave my community, I get a consistent 5 bars and blazing 5G service. This is a strong indication to me that the phone is not at fault. In addition, this same problem has affected my immediate next door neighbor who is also on Cricket and another neighbor further down the block who is on ATT. Coincidence? I think not.All the Cricket reps to whom I have spoken have brushed it aside
No Service/Data Not getting 5G
Hello,I have a Samsung A52. The last couple of days I am having an issue in certain areas of town, including my job. I cannot get a 5G connection. In fact many of the apps, including the app store say “no internet connection” and my browser often states that I have no internet connection (but then the page appears). The No connection/poor connection is annoying as I am paying for unlimited service. I do turn on Wi-Fi at home but not at work. I would like to know if you are upgrading something in the area, so maybe that is causing my service disruption? Or is the phone I bought not good enough anymore?

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
Hotspot taken off
I tried adding more hotspot yesterday with the app and it wouldn't let me, but the app is finicky so I tried using the website, but it ended up taking my whole Hotspot off. I am beyond ticked right now. And now I'm trying to add it back on and it's saying pending changes so we can't let you make any changes. This is ridiculous.

I have tried many combinations of what is presented here and on the web searches. please give me an an example with the made up number of 555-123-4567.for example: SMTP:XXXXXXXXXX@mms.cricketwireless.netThanks
Don't understand the hot spot thing
I understand tethering which is a cell phone feature. I understand data plans with cell phone companies. How does a cellular plan offer “mobile hot spots”? Either your phone does that or it doesn’t. You either have cell phone data or not, it can be unlimited or capped. How does a PLAN offer hot spots?
