I needed to add another phone to my line and the cricket agent told me I could save money by switching to an unlimited plan with 4 phones. I made it ABUNDANTLY clear that my phone has hotspot and that I needed it on my phone and not the other lines. He told me that ALL the lines would have hotspot after the change to the new plan. and my bill would only go up $5 after adding the new line, 2 days later I went to use my hotspot and it no longer worked, so I called cricket and they told me my phone was not compatible with hotspot, I proceeded to tell them that I was using hotspot for years on that same phone up until I was guaranteed that all my phones would have a hotspot. As they were pulling down my pants they told me there was no way to get my old plan back, and as they proceeded to fu<k me, they told me they COULD give me hotspot on my phone but all the phones would no longer have unlimited data and they would have to charge me $60/mo. on top of what i'm already paying.
I recently was trying to sell my old Motorola moto g7 but my grandmother insisted that I should give it to my dad in Mexico. Is there a way that my old phone could switch to another company in Mexico or is the moto phone exclusive to Cricket Wireless?I don't want to pay for an unlimited plan when my dad has worry about his data going over the limit because it is limited when a user travels to another region. So the question is, is there a third party company that could use the moto phone for service in Mexico or is the moto phone stuck with Cricket Wireless?
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?
Hey Cricket Wireless, I asked this question to the phone support and chat support and no accurate answers.. They seem like they don't have a bit of knownledge about what i am asking about, My question is basically Will Cricket's signal difference between them and my current provider of verizon matter to much? Cricket gets like -117dBm all the down to -130dBm in my area. Verizon gets like -110dBm all the way down to -124dBm where i live.. Will the difference between the two carriers make a difference in calls dropping where i live? I really want to switch to Cricket but i need my phone.
Hello again,I was looking through my phones hidden/secret menus and saw that wifi calling was provisioned via a toggle switch and VoLTE was also provisioned this same way, but I noticed that video calling was greyed out and that even though there was a toggle switch for it like the other two features, there was no way I could turn it or toggle it on.Is this a feature that Cricket offers?If so, could you please provision it and toggle it on?I'm using a Moto G7 Supra purchased from Cricket.My wife's phone is a Moto G6 Play and she has a video calling icon that apparently lets her choose to make video call if she wants. She doesn't have Cricket service but the phone was originally a Cricket phone as the box that it came in was branded as Cricket even though it was an unlocked phone at the time she purchased it.I was hoping that I could get that option to make video calls as well.Thanks...
I’m also a victim of this port out scam. My phone # was disconnected and ported out without my knowledge on September 13th. I have been calling Cricket everyday for over a month now and am getting nowhere. The customer service reps are rude and uncaring. I was without service for six days without knowing it and all they were willing to do is give me a new phone #, but I had to pay for a new SIM card and activation fees (I had to go to the Cricket store every day to call customer service until they gave me a temporary #). This is totally unacceptable. They don’t seem to be taking this situation seriously. It’s all about the money. I just want MY phone # back, the one that I’ve had for thirty years and brought with me when I signed up with Cricket. Fortunately the other #’s on my account weren’t affected which is good, but I’m the account holder and the one that pays the bill. Where’s the service that I’m paying for? They opened a ticket and I was told this was a priority. They kept sayi
I have owned a Samsung Galaxy Halo phone for several years and all that time I had WiFi Hot Spot access for which I paid an extra fee. Recently I changed to the "Unlimited & 15GB Mobile Hotspot" plan and suddenly lost WiFi Hot Spot access. I called the customer several times and asked why my WiFi Hot Spot was cut off. They told me that I lost access because I change plans and the Hot Spot would not work with the Galaxy Halo. I asked then to be switched me back to my old plan and they told me that could not be done. They proceded told me that my only recourse was to purchase a new phone. Told them that I paid a lot of money for my Galaxy Halo and expected it to provide WiFi hot spot access. I explained to them that it was ILLEGAL to charge me for WiFi Hot Spot access and not provide that service. Only after that remark did they offer to give me credit. CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME RESOLVE THIS ISSUE?CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW TO ACCESS A PERSON AT CUSTOMER SERV
I received a text that my account is eligible for HBO Max free, so I clicked the link and installed HBO Max from the play store. I followed directions, clicked on the person icon, then clicked on Sign Into Account, then clicked on sign in with a provider, then I selected Cricket Wireless and then I get this error: Access Denied. You don't have access to http:www.cricketwireless.com/restservices/hboauth/v1/sam1/idp/init on this server. Reference #18.15aa2c17.1631305538.1896458bI have Samsung phone. Any ideas why I can't sign in like it says to?
I have been with Cricket since 2017 I am so glad I bought the protection plan I had to send my LG in so many times for glitches and malfunctioning the last time I had to send my phone in I was told it was the last time I could use the protection plan. I have had this phone for over a year I went to upgrade but could not afford the phone upgrade not the 25.00 free and any other hidden fee also buy a tempered glass screen protector and case. The phones I could afford were junk. I don't want an I phone or Samsung not an another LG. The Motarola I want 139.00 up grade price then the extra fees. When a new coustomers can get the phone for almost nothing I have 3 lines and pay over 100.00 a month. All this refer a friend stuff is not a good way of being told u could save 250 a year with refer a friend and automatic payments I do have automatic payments and people I know are happy with the servace they have. So Cricket you need to take care of your coustomers that have been with you for years
I live in a town of 12,000 people in southern Vermont and recently I can get only 1 bar of signal in some parts of town and no signal at all in other parts of town. This is a recent change over the summer. Nearby towns or even out on the freeway it is fine as before. Zip Code 05301. Does anyone know what is going on or am I going to have to find a new carrier?
Hi, i have subscribed to the 2gb data plan on my mobile ( i phone 6) . However , the internet is very slow . It takes a very long time to load pictures, videos and to open a webpage ,although i am using LTE , which should load data faster. Can you please look into the matter?Thanks.
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.
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
Hello. I have used advanced messaging on the Samsung messages app on my previous Cricket phone. Now I cannot get those specific messages to transfer to my new Cricket Moto phone. However, normal SMS and MMS messages have transferred. How can I get the messages of type "advanced messaging" to transfer to my new phone?
