We have several phones and all work fine except one. On that phone it will ring if someone calls from a cell phone and work... but if they call from a landline it goes straight to voice mail. I have wasted time talking to a person in a cricket store, and call customer service 3 times and gotten no solutions. We have swapped the sim cards with another phone and when we do the phone that isn't work will work with the other sim card in it, but the sim card from the phone that isn't working will have the same problem in any phone you put the card into. So we know it isn't the phone.
Many companies do this, they offer great deals to new customers and current loyal customers get the low end, it is so infuriating. I have been with cricket for years now and now that I want to upgrade I have to pay 549.99 + 25.00 for a Galaxy S9 if I was a new number/customer I would pay 274.99 + 25.00 what is the problem here? I see no deals for loyal current customers. I may consider switching carriers since this is really upsetting since phones are so expensive these days.
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 been using the same phone number with Cricket for years. I use two step authentication for Facebook. Unfortunately, because I clear out my browser history, cache and cookies upon exit, I have to enter a six digit code that is sent to my cell phone before Facebook will allow me to log in.As of the last four days, I stopped receiving the text messages to my cell phone. I have verified my identity by sending both a copy of my photo ID, and photo of me holding up a sign with a special number Facebook gives me to write on the sign showing it is me who holds the actual Facebook account. It has been four days. NOTHING.I am unable to get into my Facebook account. I found out there is other ways, such as Google Authenticator as an option, but at this point, if I cannot get into my account, I am unable to change the options. I am frustrated and was told this may have something to do with the cell phone provider, and I want to solve this issue.Now even when I download a new browser and try
Cricket website says: "You can communicate through calls and text messages over a Wi-Fi network using Wi-Fi Calling. You'll need a Wi-Fi Calling capable device and an active Wi-Fi network. If cellular coverage is weak or unavailable your device will route calls and texts via Wi-Fi. For example, when in poor coverage areas or when your device is in airplane mode with Wi-Fi enabled."Please someone who has experience with this wifi calling tell me what this means. Is it just text messages or video/picture messages? Is it both?It just seems hit or miss on sending messages with pictures or even gifs. Sometimes they send fine, and other times, they are 'undeliverable'. We live in an area of poor Cricket coverage. So wifi calling is valuable to us. I have had Cricket support tell me directly that we cannot text over Wifi Calling. I then proceeded to show them what their website says, and they say...please hold, we will look into it.Text me
LTE data is very slow for me recently. I don’t know what’s wrong. Most of time download is less than 1 Mbps. Before pandemic, I remember it usually was about 6 to 7 Mbps. I tested using another virtual carrier, which also use AT&T networks, with the same phone same location almost same time, it has more than 10 Mbps. Please help. Thanks.
I've been a Cricket customer for over 22+ years. Prior to Cricket, the cell phone providers used to be PrimeCo, US Cellular which has been bought over the years which is now known as Cricket. Over the years, I have never missed a payment and always encourage others to use the Cricket Company as their cell phone provider. My phone number has been my main source of communication with my family, friends, career, business purposes, coworkers, and other accounts over the years. I recently wrote to Cricket Wireless because they abruptly shut my phone service off on Thursday, February 11, 2021. I noticed that I haven’t received any sort of communications throughout the night. I replied to a sent text a message that was not delivered. I also couldn’t make any phone calls whereas I discovered an error message kept scrolling across my phone screen…. "SIM not provisioned MM2".On Friday morning, February 12, 2020….I went to the Cricket store about my phone connection. The store representative
CRICKET WILL NOT ALLOW MMS MESSAGES THROUGH WIFI WHICH IS RIDICULOUS ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE IN A RURAL AREA WHERE THEY REFUSE TO BUILD TOWERS AND EVERYTHING HAS TO WORK THROUGH YOUR WIFI WE ALSO SHOULDNT HAVE TO PAY THE CARRIER FOR A RATE PLAN IF ALL WE CAN USE IS WIFI CALLING AS THAT ACCOUNTS FOR 2 BILLS THAT IS UNNECESSARY ESPECIALLY IF THEY LIMIT CERTAIN FEATURES CRICKET IS ONLY LOW COST BECAUSE OF LIMITS CARRIERS WANT TO KNOW WHY PEOPLE ARE JAILBREAKING OR ROOTING THERE PHONES ITS REASONS LIKE THIS IN THE MEAN TIME ILL CHANGE MY APN SETTINGS TO BYPASS THE RESTRICTIONS THIS CARRIER FORCES
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?
Upgraded to the Samsung galaxy a32 5g about 3 days ago. From the very beginning the hotspot did not work. Have tried literally every possible troubleshooting step. Stumped about 5 tech support people. I cannot exchange the phone without paying more money, but at the same time I have a phone that never worked right and for all intents and purposes is defective at best. How can I replace my phone for one that actually works without having to pay another upgrade fee and activation fee? Phone was bought from cricket, is compatible with hotspot, works perfect except it notes any hotspot connection.
I am developing an app that lets me send text messages from the command line. Currently one way but I have planned 2 way conversations. It is basically a scheduled texting app that sends reminders to one of more people now, or anytime in the future. It was working fine, I was getting all the texts I sent out during testing and then last night somehow they became blocked and I can no longer test my app, even if I change email addresses. So it tells me that my account has somehow been blocked of all email texts. Sending and receiving. It's not a bulk texter it's meant for personal use or for other developers that are on a team.. how can I unblock the email texts so that I can continue to develop and even use my app?
