Wi-fi calling through wired ethernet adapter?
We have lousy cell reception at the house, only good by certain windows (rural Alaska). I’m trying to use my ethernet-USB C adapter to get wi-fi calling through our wired home internet system. Dream 5 cricket phone. Cricket rep in our town said wi-fi setup should work, even though ours is wired. I’ve gone through the wi-fi setup and nothing is connecting. Any ideas?
Hotspot has no internet
I have a Nokia C5 Endi and my hotspot will not work. I can connect my devices to it but there is no internet connection. I had a Nokia 3.1 Plus and it had the same issues that's why I bought the C5. I have chatted and called cricket but still have this issue. Does anyone know what to do? I'm so close to just saying bye to cricket and going back to pageplus. At least they work like they say they will. And yes I have done ALL troubleshooting from my end. Never had a problem with my hotspot until after I got a insurance replacement on my 3.1 about 3 months ago since then I haven't had hotspot that I'm paying for.
Will the Cricket SIM / service work in a 4G LTE router?
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.

Prohibited data uses question
I have a Cradlepoint cellular modem that I am interested in using on your system in the area of Rush, NY 14543.I checked the IMEI and it says the device is compatible with your "Data Only" services and I am interested in the 20GB/$35 plan.I have read your AUP "Prohibited Data Uses" and I want to see if my proposed use is acceptable. I understand the reason for the prohibition of continuous, full time or dedicated data connections if the application occupies significant bandwidth.My application would involve an outbound continuous data stream of 24kbps to a specific server. Inbound data would be only connections initiated from the server (rarely done once established) to adjust or reset the device. This will be the only application I will run on this device.The application does require use of TCP ports in the 7200-7300 range to communicate to/from the server. I need to be sure your network does not block these ports.Given the fact that my bandwidth will never exceed 0.030Mbps, I b
Another customer wondering about RCS
RCS worked on Google Messages on my Cricket-branded Moto G7 for a few months, but when I uninstalled Google Messages and tried re-installing it, it hangs when verifying my number. Can someone from Cricket provide an answer on exactly what phones RCS is supported on and what the schedule to roll RCS out to all phones?
how come i cant get into recovery mode by pressing volume down and power on my lg k 92 5G?
Im trying to root my lg k 92 5G. It says every where on the internet to hold the volume down while holding the power button from power off mode. And then to release them after the logo comes on screen...the only thing i can get it to do is startup in safe mode?
Cricket data is too slow
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.
Cached Caller ID
I work for a local telecom provider. One of our customers is reporting that their outbound caller ID is showing up incorrectly on Cricket Wireless customer's devices. I've verified that their CNAM is correct, and I suspect that Cricket's database just needs to be updated.Can somebody who works for Cricket give me some direction? I'm not even sure who to call to try to get these records updated.Thanks in advance.
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.
Voice Mail Deactivated - how long to resolve?
I’m on my second call/case with Cricket to get my disabled voicemail reactivated. Apparently Cricket disables voicemail for people who don’t use it or something?!? I feel I use mine frequently. Very frustrated to be dealing with an auto accident with the inability to trust my voicemail to pick up when needed. The first case was closed because they said I didn’t answer when they called, but I never received a call or had any missed calls.Questions:What are the criteria for having your voicemail deactivated?How long should I expect it to take to be reactivated?I’m extremely frustrated right now and looking into other carriers. Any suggestions?
Text message and call history
I am beginning the process of divorce, and I was wondering if Cricket keeps logs of messages and/or calls that could be subpoenaed if needed? If so for how long are they kept? Also, if texts are kept is it just the number of who was texted, or is it full messages? Thanks!
Where is customer loyalty perk??
Cricket seems no longer able to satisfy existing customers with loyalty perks. I can easily switch to another carrier and save lots of money. I've been a customer for over 7 years and cricket has made no effort to keep me happy. I'm seeing a lot of the same from reading different posts. Very unfortunate considering the above and beyond service I've experienced in previous years.
I got a 973f s10. Either way. I can put my sim in my style 5 provision my wifi calling and my hd calling but crickets system does something a few hours later after I swap my sim back to my s10. But in the mean time my wifi calling and hd calling work awesome till the system reprovision happens.So is cricket telling me my s10 is not hd compatible and my phone wont work when they shut down the 3g network. Well cricket dont you think you should figure out how to properly provision byop since I can make it work I'm sure you can. I did on my s9 by sim swap method. Provision swap back enable. And call cricket and lie and say the system showed I was on my s9 but like and tell them I'm actually on my style 5. And give them the imei. HD and wifi calling worked awesome for over a year.
First, I would like to make it clear that I absolutely love Cricket and its services. My wife and I have recommended them to several people over the years. Unfortunately, until the unlock policy is changed, I will never buy a phone from Cricket again. Specifically, the clause in the policy preventing even long time customers in good standing from unlocking a phone for 6 months. I am someone that goes on international trips and as soon as I land in a country (other than Canada and Mexico) my phone mostly becomes a paperweight. The only way to overcome this is to buy a local sim card for my phone and make it fully functional for the length of my trip. Until the policy is changed I will simply buy unlocked phones off of Amazon. I have no plans on ever leaving Cricket, but this policy has made it irrational for me to ever purchase one of your phones again.
Can’t order anything online, says credit card not processing
I’ve been a loyal customer of Cricket for 7 years now and every time I try and order a new phone from the website I always have trouble. When I ordered 3 phones in March the issue was that the address I was using and address of card don’t match up. I was talking thru chat and finally got it to work somehow. Most of the time I have to go to a store and buy it that way. So this time I’m trying to add my son to my plan and the same thing happened. I even tried my boyfriends card and it says that his card isn’t valid but yet he has used it ordering stuff online all the time. You guys really need to get this figured out cuz I’m sure your losing customers and I’m not going to keep dealing with this. At this point I might as well pay more for phones and service thru your competitors to have to deal with this hassle. I know I’m not the only one with this problem and I have contacted Cricket on Facebook but got blown off. Figure it out your I go elsewhere.
Hi, my name is Rita SanterI have been a customer for a few years and my husband & I are consider great customers because we always pay our bills very early. In my opinion, i think it would be good to treat the good customers great but in reality it's the opposite. I bought a Nokia 3.1 at least 2 months ago and this phone is consider one of the worst phone that i ever hold in my hand. My phone was unable to get charged and retain the charges for days so this morning i went to the dealer where i bought the phone and he had told me that they have been having issues with that bran to call and the warranty dept would take my info and send me a new one but to my surprise i was being tossed around like a rug. I started my process early in the day and it's almost 7 PM the problem is not solved. We are living in a difficult time so understand the customers and help them solved their problems can be an A+ for any company but for cricket i give you a F- because your people don't underst
I recently switched to Cricket from Straight Talk because Cricket offered MUCH better coverage in my area than Straight Talk. I am very satisfied with the switch in that I can now browse the web on my phone without having to sit in my car in the driveway. However, I am having an issue with the hotspot. Despite Straight Talk's inferior coverage out here, I was still able to put my phone on to charge in my car and run my mobile hotspot to play online games. Now you would think that since Cricket has better coverage their hotspot would perform better, right? WRONG. My laptop will connect but it runs so slow that it is essentially useless. What gives, Cricket? Why is my connection so strong on my cell phone but your mobile hotspot is absolute garbage? And yes, I tried USB tethering and it was even slower. This is unacceptable. Straight Talk's hotspot is included in their $55 plan for free and works dramatically better than the one you guys charge $10/month for. Get it togeth
