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?
I have noticed that often times my data will become throttled so slowly to the point of becoming totally unusable (like I'm not even able to perform a speed test or do a google search). This occurs even tho I have the fastest unlimited plan available with cricket (8mbps) and occurs regardless to how far into my billing cycle or how much data has been used for the month. This can often be resolved by putting the phone in airplane mode to disconnect all data services and then switch it back. After airplane mode is turned back off and reconnects to the mobile data, the speed returns to normal. I'm not sure if anyone else has experienced this but figured I'd ask just in case. (However on occasion, I've had to do this multiple times within the same 10 min period bc the connection speed keeps dropping below 0.01mbps which can be frustrating). It is esp problematic if I am using my mobile hotspot or am logged into a secure site for something important like paying bills or purchasing something
Will cricket core plan work with an unlocked and compatible 4G router? I want to temporarily use the mobile data included in the plan. My phone’s broken and I can’t replace it as of this time. But I badly need to use mobile data / hotspot to connect to family and friends using my laptop. Anyone knowledgeable on this? I don’t want to upgrade to the Simply data plan that’s $55/month.It’s too expensive.
Hi, this is more a suggestion than a question, but I don't know where to post it, so I guessed here would be fine.Long time ago I was with T-Mobile and besides their problem with coverage and high priced plans, they had one very cool feature: all the streamed music won't count in your data transfers, so you could use whatever service you liked (Google Play, iTunes, Spotify, Pandora...) with no decrease in your available data, very convenient if you use this kind is music services.Are you guys planning our have you ever thought to offer a similar feature? It will be perfect!Besides that, cricket is the best wireless company in the US!Thanks!
I'm just wondering how you can shut my phone off when my entire state is on lockdown and we can't work for weeks . My kids are home the internet is the only way to access their homework. It is irresponsible to treat your customers this way. Loyal customers for years and this is what we get from you. The electric companys the gas companys and property Management and other cell phone companies are delaying payment for at least 60days to help ppl in this crisis . I hope customers remember how we are being treated buy these companies that don't care about their customers and only care about their money in this time thx for nothing. Ohh and how will a no reconnect fee help when you are stuck in your home and can't work!??
I currently have the grandfathered 5 lines for $100 plan. I would like to be able to make call and send text messages while I am on vacation in Mexico. I initially talked to cricket customer service and they said I can add international calling features for 1 month. When I went online to add the international calling feature it only mentions making calls to landline numbers in 35 countries, it does not say you can receive calls. Is it possible to be able to add international calling and place and receive calls and texts while in Mexico. Calls would be from and to the US.
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?

How come a 15 plus years customer such as myself can't get a discounted price on an phone upgrade? A new customer can come in and get a free phone but a customer who is here to stay and has proven their loyalty has to pay a couple of hundreds of dollars for the same phone. What is wrong with this picture? There is definitely something wrong with this.
When my ex receives delivery reports on her Samsung A51 (with straight talk) phone for sent text it shows my number. She is accusing me of hacking her phone and is threatening to contact someone (police I guess). I didn't even know there were delivery reports for texts until now. She was cheating. She tried to prove she wasn't cheating by giving me gmail pswd. I logged in on my phone and somehow her contacts were added to my contacts. I am not sure if this has anything to do with this. But I am no longer logged in to her gmail. I have went everywhere looking for these msgs. For one I would like to see them but also I need to stop this in case she does contact somebody. I do not want there to be accidental evidence. My phone is an LG stylo and I have cricket. I am attaching the image she sent me for proof. My number is redacted.
I’m interested in using an LTE 4G router such as the Cudy AC1200 Dual Band Unlocked 4G LTE Modem Router with SIM Card Slot in a remote location which has no internet but good Cricket service. Will this work? I read a comment on one of the 4G LTE router reviews which stated that Cricket disabled the SIM after one day of use.
