hbo max & ACP credit
I keeping getting an error when trying to sign in to HBO. It says I'm not eligible or something along those lines but I have the $60 plan and cricket has sent me messages telling me I'm eligible. So I went and read the fine print and it said "may not be stackable with other offers/credits"I have the $30 ACP credit, does that disqualify me from being able to use HBO?
phantom add-on features
In my account summary page online and in app shows that I have one add-on feature to one of my lines in my family plan and on the second line it says that there are two add-on features. I currently have no add-on features nor have I ever had additional features. To clarify my question, I have contacted cricket customer service and they were dismissive and gave useless suggestions but I am not being billed for these mysterious add-ons. Thank god I just want to know why it even indicates that they are there. This is not a unimportant or stupid question, this is a valid inquiry and could indicate more serious glitches involving money at some point. Though crickets outsourced customer service agents from you know where don't seem to give a you know what about you know who! I think you do.
Hotspot not free 10gb with $50 plan?
I went into my account and added the hotspot feature. My phone and $50 plan were eligible for 10gb of hotspot service, or so I thought. It even said it would cost $0 before I selected to review my updated features/plans. But when I select to review, it says I'll be charged $10. Am I missing something here?
I am paying for a certain amount of data each month. Why can't I use that data how i want to use it. Why must I have to have an unlimited plan to teather a device to my phone? It makes no sense. Other carriers i have had allowed me to teather my phone to other devices with no problem. I would like to make a suggestion that mobile hotspot should be a feature on all data plans.Please allow us to use our data how we see fit.Thank you.
Lost Phone / Recover Text Messages
Hi,Not sure if this is the right place to ask but here goes. Back in the day, service providers could actually recover/download all the text messages you sent or received. Is this something that can still be done? Wife's phone was stolen, it's not turned on (likely won't be, at least not where I can access it), and besides photos of her recently passed cousin, she is heartbroken over losing the many texts that she sent and received with him during his final months.Does Cricket keep texts stored on servers? And if so, is it a situation where we could get them?Thank you in advance!

Cricket! You've Messed Up Hotspot Service BAD! 128kbs throttle with ZERO gig's used!
Starting a few days ago the hotspot service that many of us pay EXTRA to have has been badly messing up. I noticed all of a sudden none of my Smart TV's would work, then I realized that my Hotspot speed was locked at 128kb... I thought it was a system goof and would reset when my service cycle started so I waited a few days until they charged me a new month. Now... I'm about to call my credit card and dispute the charges! The techs at Cricket have clearly messed something up and put hotspot accounts on restriction, even perfectly legit ones it seems! (Whatever QoS system you've activated is messing up BAD!) A quick google search shows I'm not alone, and Cricket support is claiming everything from "tower maintenance" to "dual apn support" and everything thing else, which all ignores the fact that we are people who have had no issues with hotspot UNTIL whatever change was made happened a few days back. At this point I see no reason to stay with Cricket and I post this as
Can't use Visual Voicemail app on pixel 3A running Android Q Beta
Upgraded to a Pixel 3A running Android Q 6/5 build. Visual Voicemail indicates that I have 1 new message, but (also) says "You must have Cricket Wireless service to use Cricket Visual Voicemail" and closes after clicking "OK".Multiple Uninstalling, and re-installing does nothing to resolve the issue (and, yes, I did grant the all the requested permissions).Long time Cricket customer, and no problems with Visual Voicemail with Android Oreo. (I think I successfully used the app when I was on Android Pie, but not 100% certain)
I just switched to Cricket. Got a free Alcatel Verso. I live where there is No Cell Service. I do have DSL and Wifi.I need to be able to text via wifi. I used to be able to do it on my Droid mini, with verizon. That phone broke, and they dont make them anymore. (I really liked it too)I dont want some "chat" "phone number". Any Ideas?Thanks
I have a niece who has struggled financially and I would like to pay for her and her 3 kids phone and service for a year. They currently have ATT which just got shut off do to lack of payment. My question is what would be best. Keep my phone as a single line and open a new account in her name with 3 phones or add her 3 phones to my account? Any suggestions Todd O
No coverage refund?
I live in a rural area, and I have checked the coverage map for my exact home location. It shows that I should be able to get 3G and LTE coverage. However, I've had issues with other providers (also showing I can get decent coverage), and I get no bars at all.I am wondering; IF my I buy service and my phone does not work at my house... will I be able to get a refund for the plan and sim card fees?
Why cant I get hotspot? Stylo 3
My husbands was waiting for his warranty phone as we waited for his shipment (memorial day weekend) he would put his sim card on my phone to use for that weekend, I was told hotspot would not work on stylo 3, but yet when my husband put his sim card on my stylo his hotspot worked perfectly with no issues, so I dont understand why I cant add hotspot what so ever, when will that feature be available for stylo 3? I live in a small town and internet providers are limited here, hotspot would be very convenient!
Samsung S8+ Mobile Hotspot
I have a Samsung Galaxy S8+ and I want to know if the Mobile Hotspot feature will work on the S8+. All of the S line is listed as being compatible with the HotSpot but not the Plus versions. I chatted online and the support person at first responded yes the S8 will work but then I re-clarified that I was asking about the S8+. The said only if I purchased the phone from Cricket. They don't sell an S8+ so obviously that doesn't help and I don't want to buy a new phone. So I went to a store and they were even more clueless than than the CSR so I thought while I was at the store they could provide me a SIM to test. They said I could purchase a SIM and try it but if it didn't work they couldn't give me a refund. That is absurd! All I want to know is will the Mobile Hotpost work on my phone before I purchase a SIM. I currently use the phone with Simple Mobile on the TMobile network. It used to be an ATT phone.
Can I have a tablet on it's own line of service?
Can I have a tablet on it's own line of service? I do have hot spot on my phone but it is not elgible on Cricket. However, I would just rather have a dedicated line than having to go thru the intermediary steps of the hot spot. Is this possible?
