Hotspot worked for a month then stopped

Jump to solution

So I got the mobile hotspot plan and used it minutes after getting it. About a month later it stopped working. I read other posts and the responses stated the phones weren't eligible. However, this is completely false for me due to the fact that the hotspot was working for a month. So why did cricket disable the mobile hotspot after the first month of successful use?

@justingrimm7 I would check your plan. I know that they offer both a one time add on and a monthly one that charges every month. If you changed your plan it could have done something also. They also did offer free hotspot for a short time for COVID relief that was recently discontinued. The only plan that includes hotspot without paying extra is the new $60 plan.
