Back before 5G, the lte service was so fast in most places, and okay in others. Nowadays lte service is horrible, so slow to tune of 1-4mbps downloading. Upload is like 1mbps. I know, reset network settings. Be close to towers. Use fast phone. Have plan with high speed rating, which I have. Nothing solves issue. Seems I’m not alone as I browse this forum. How many others experiencing this same issue? I’m in the Philadelphia suburbs and sometimes had speed of 70mbps downloading before 5G came around. This seems like I’m paying for no -throttling and yet am throttled at less than the throttled speed. Been this way for months now. Considering switching to another carrier to get faster speeds and a new 5G phone, which seems to be the end game AT&T and Cricket seems to want.
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?
I went to the Cricket store to get phones that worked in my area because total wireless did not. I bought a flip phone, because my one from total wireless did not work with cricket. I got a LG Escape Plus and a LG Fortune 2 for free so we did not have to learn new phones as these matched mine and my daughters old phones. I was told the phone cases would be free if we bought screen protectors. screen protectors I bought at walmart were only 10.00 , so I paid 30.00 more than I thought. The alarms worked fine until the service ladies (2 different ones) changed the times. the times are wrong on the phones. shows 2 different times about 5 hrs difference. I paid 55.00 for first mo service. then 25.00 for service. then 10.00 for 1 month service. can not get notification to turn off but ringer does not work. I (on purpose) set the phones up to automatically renew on the 4th because we are on ssi. we get paid on the 3rd, and I get a notice that it will bill tomorrow which is the second. It will
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.
When my ex receives delivery reports on her Samsung A51 (with straight talk) phone for sent text it shows my number. She is accusing me of hacking her phone and is threatening to contact someone (police I guess). I didn't even know there were delivery reports for texts until now. She was cheating. She tried to prove she wasn't cheating by giving me gmail pswd. I logged in on my phone and somehow her contacts were added to my contacts. I am not sure if this has anything to do with this. But I am no longer logged in to her gmail. I have went everywhere looking for these msgs. For one I would like to see them but also I need to stop this in case she does contact somebody. I do not want there to be accidental evidence. My phone is an LG stylo and I have cricket. I am attaching the image she sent me for proof. My number is redacted.
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?

When trying to activate a "Call Waiting" feature, I get the following error message "Unexpected response from network". Tried different Android phones as well as a dumb-phone, so the problem is definitely not with my phone and/or its settings.The problem has to do with the network and its settings on the provider side. Contacted the Cricket Support, but without success. Also, tried to manually query and activate as follows:status query *#43# <DIAL>Response: "Call waiting: Service has been disabled" to activate: *43# <DIAL>Response: "Connection problem or invalid MMI code"
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.
The Cricket Wireless app and the Cricket Wireless website will not let me buy mobile hotspot. I've done it many many times before on the website is simply not working. I've also tried to do it over the phone, which I have done many many times before, and the phone system won't even give me an option to buy hotspot. It's been taken off of the phone system. It says that there is customer service until 11 p.m. and that's b******* because I keep calling them at 8pm and they won't answer or help me it just says that they're gone and to call back at regular hours. It would be nice if the website or the phone system could give an explanation as to why it's not working. Really really frustrating to the point that it gets me very pissed off
I no longer need the extra data nor hotspot features through my phone, in looking through the mycricket app there is every avenue imaginable to add anything to a line of service but I can't find one to remove a feature , can someone please help me find where to do this at....
I absolutely need wifi calling, since cell phone reception is dreadful where I live (1 bar.) Lots of missed calls going straight to voice mail. Is there an Android phone (not iOS) that has reliable wifi calling on Cricket? I don't care about fancy features like camera, stylus etc. Just need reliable wifi calling.P.S. I have seen the official list of Cricket phones that support wifi calling. I'm looking for feedback from customers who actually use wifi calling on their phone and are happy with it. TIA!
