Block all incoming calls except pre-authorized?
Greetings.In this day-and-age of constant scam calls, does Cricket offer any way to block all calls except for those pre-authorized? Or is there an app that you recommend for doing this?I'm getting tired of blocking specific numbers just to have them call using a different number. If I could auth only certain numbers (say from my contact list) to come through that would be great. Thank you.
Adding more hotspot data
I’m needing to get more hotspot data for my upcoming bill cycle that starts the 12th, and that I have ALREADY paid for. When I go in and go the the change plan features screen, it says I’ll pay another $60 for the plan, plus ANOTHER $60 for the data. Is this correct or is something wrong with my account?
COVID -19 and the need for UNCAPPED Hot Spot
We’re committed to keeping our customers connected to family, friends and the latest information. Beginning March 14, we will waive reconnect fees for customers who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Cricket customers who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic should call Cricket customer care at 1-800-CRICKET (274-2538) or 611 from their Cricket phone if they need this reconnect fee waived. I called Cricket via 611 and had a very specific question with regards to COVID-19 and with all that is being shut down , among that call was with regards to our schools being shut down here in Washington State . I was told by a representative that there has been an application placed in to the government to help assist with removing caps because with everything that is closing from Doctors office Lobbies to mental health centers, Schools, theaters and other forms of entertainment , ALL have been shut down and we can no longer access them. My Q
What Bands does Cricket use
My Moxee Hotspot from Cricket shows 3 and sometimes 4 Bars inside my house. Even with 3 or 4 bars the internet is slow and that is if the internet works at all. From noon to midnight it shows service but you can’t even open a webpage it times out. I want to buy me a signal booster to see if that helps but I need to know what Bands Cricket uses. Do they use different bands in different parts of the Country or do they use the same bands everywhere. Could someone please help me with this I can’t ask support because my internet is never working when they are open. All I have is there 100gb data plan and no phone with a plan. Also everytime I have ask for help here no one ever answer. I hope maybe this time someone would and could help me with this. I’ll wait 2 days and if there is no help then I know none is coming and Cricket support is just a name made of words to make Cricket blame the problem on others. Help! Help! Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So someone has stolen my brothers LG Fortune 2 and is still using the phone. The dude has been messaging people saved in the contacts pretending to be my brother. He's using the data, making calls and messaging numbers as I'm writing this. Is there anyway to locate the device remotely before blocklisting it? Not sure what all apps he's got on his phone or if any allow premission for location/GPS. And if theres no way to locate it, can I suspend and/or wipe the phone in the morning on the 17th (when customer support is available) and be able to use the upgrade to get a new phone that becomes available on the 18th?Or does suspending the line cause you to not be able to use the upgrade?

Why does the phone forward calls to +16787649911
I have a Nokia 3.1+ and went into the call settings and found that number is used to forward calls for when busy, unanswered and unreachable and want to know 'why'?What if I delete the number? I read this is the setting to set the ring duration (which is what i'm trying to determine and change if possible)
Mobile Hotspot BYOD phone
I had an unlocked Galaxy S7 from MetroPCS (former employer) on my CW account and I was using mobile Hotspot with no issues. So much so that I had to change my plan. No problem. A couple of days ago I upgraded to an unlocked T-Mobile Galaxy S9+. Mobile Hotspot connects to my devices but it's not getting data from my phone's data connection. I've tried several APN variations even copying the exact APN settings from my S7. No luck. Please help. I'm a truck driver and I need my hotspot!
I have been a loyal customer for 2 years and today my phone decided to start acting up. I went online and was shocked at how much it costs to "upgrade" your phone. I spoke with an agent in chat that informed me that I was getting a $40 discount as a loyal customer. So just for giggles I went on like I was a new customer and the same phone I looked at was the same price offered to me as a loyal customer. I might add to this that I have 4 lines through Cricket and have NEVER been late with a payment.I do not feel as if Cricket values my business. I like Cricket. I have never had an issue with coverage no matter where I am.I would hate to have to change all 4 lines to another company. I came to Cricket from MetroPCS because of the customer service and lack of appreciation.
Wifi Calling Doesn't Turn On Easily
I live in an area where my cell coverage is little to none in my house. I purchased 2 Moto e5 Supra phones and got wifi calling enabled on my account and setup e911. After trying to get it to work for 3 days and over 5 hours of calls with support it still didn't work. I brought the phones into a Cricket owned store and they tried for over 3 hours and finally got it to work. It magically started working on both phones. The thought was if you disable wifi calling shut the phone down then start it back up and then enable wifi calling. BUT that still isn't working now.There must be a software problem with this phone and it is REALLY frustrating. Cricket phone support is quite incompetent, they tried telling me to contact Motorolla but the manufacturer said this particular feature is a software feature installed by Cricket and not by the manufacturer. It is the typical hot potato pass the buck. Now I'm past the 7 day return window.
Telemarketers and Spam Risk calls
I'm getting about 12 to 14 Spam Risk calls a week and some that state their from telemarketers. I'm on the DNC list. The number of calls I get is overwhelming. What's Cricket doing about intercepting these illegal calls? I believe they have a responsibility. All I know is I've been putting up with this for months. File complaints with DNC registry. Anyone have an answer to what Crickets part and responsibility to us is?
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?
I need to know WHY my NEW 5G phone STILL isn't good enough for Cricket?
Last year my entire family bought new phones. Last month my daughter had issues with hers so when she put her sim card back in Cricket suspended her account and we were informed that none of our barely a year old phones would work anymore. That Cricket would only use and support 4G and 5G phones. So me and my husband just decided to go ahead and buy new 5G $400 phones. We go to put our sim cards in and we are then told that these new 5G $400 phones are not good enough for the Cricket service so they suspend both of our service and tell us we will have to purchase NEW PHONES FROM THEM to continue to use Cricket. I kept telling them that these are 5G phones but NO they are good enough….WHY? I can’t afford to pay for another phone. MAYBE if Cricket would allow all the existing customers to use the “New Customer” rates since they are FORCING their customers to upgade. I know many of their customers will not be able to upgrade their phones. Due to their cheaper service many low income fami
