WHY is cricket service complete TRASH now and they WILL NOT fix it!?
I pay for phone service that USED to be stellar! It’s complete SHIT now! They refuse to help. They are installing 5G bullshit while slowly choking out 4G service all the while CONTINUOUSLY Selling 4G devices touting them as the best of the best! I’m fed the hell up with this! I used to have full bars and no complaints! Now I get 1 if I’m lucky and can’t even send a picture thru a damn text message! I LIVE IN THE SAME PLACE AND YOUR SERVICE HAS GOTTEN SO BAD THAT IM FIXING TO SAY SHOVE IT UP YOUR 5G TOWER THAT IS LITERALLY 5 MILES FROM MY FRONT DOOR! You crooks! Not everyone can afford to run out and buy new $600+ Phones! And what’s worse is y’all haven’t offered to assist customers with these new phones these stupid rich companies are going to require us to have! Get. It. Together.
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.
Looking for a feature to block all texts from email addresses and the web
After a lengthy support chat session, I wanted to post here for one last attempt, and leave it as feedback if I am forced to go to another service. I want to block all email-based text messages. Nobody contacts me that way that I know or care about. It is only a vulnerability waiting to be exploited. Verizon offers and advertises this feature. There are about a dozen posts for AT&T on what internal KB article helps a technician make the necessary gateway change. T-Mobile offers, according to their site, an ability to block emails sent to the <number>@provideremail. Hiya doesn’t block what I am requesting.Changing my number is an unacceptable option (for a fee even) because changing the number is more of a hassle than jumping providers. Does Cricket have control of their own infrastructure so that this can be done, like with their owner company and their competition?
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.
PLEASE update your website on Eligible Phones for Mobile Hotspot
I recently upgraded my plan to the unlimited Ultimate + hotspot…. first checked the website to be sure that my moto g power was eligible for hotspot and it said it was. Now I find out that it in fact is not eligible via one of your online chat agents. My phone was purchased directly from Motorola, not a carrier specific phone. So please, make this more clear on your website. It was nice of your agent to remind me that I’m eligible for a device upgrade, but unfortunately, that doesn’t make up for the fact that the phone I have is relatively new and replacing it now would be a giant waste of my money.
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?
rcs in 2021 s21+ unlocked
Why cant i get my s21+ unlocked phone that cost $1000 plus the other 3 i bought for my plan not send stupid videos to eachother cuz cricket or samsung wont give me an rcs option? Come on you guys i dont want to use google messenger anymore because it doesnt customize which is the number one reason i left apple.Its 2021 and i cant send a video from one device to another without it looking like super mario 1? This shouldnt even be a topic of discussion anymore since it has been since the s9. Get it together asap or your going to lose a family plan over here.

Phone number unable to receive texts or calls
My phone can not receive texts or calls, for the third time in the past 2 months. The first time it happened I ordered a new phone directly from Cricket assuming it was a hardware issue as my previous phone was 4 years old, but the issue persisted to the new phone.I can send texts and make outgoing calls, but my phone number can not receive them. I can call or text my wife, who is also on cricket and sitting right next to me, and it goes through with no issue. When she calls or texts me back I receive nothing. A few hours later the text will come through.The last two times the customer support person "reset my network" to fix it, but it should not keep happening and I need this fixed permanently.Everything else works fine on my phone. Apps all work in real time, Facebook messenger and video chat all work fine, but anything running through my phone number is dead.

Hotspot add on
I use alot of hotspot so i can watch tv on my roku. would i b better off with the 10 GB plan and streaming option? rather than the cricket more plan that i currently have and adding upto $50 of add on hotspot a month? With my add ons I'm spending over $120 a month. No wifi available where I live.
hotspot not working on new phone.
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.
A Subpoena...for call records?
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
