Hotspot

Having a limited lists of phones that support Hotspot is very confusing to me.  I know for a fact there are phones not on the list that will work with Cricket Hotspot because I have friends that are doing it.  So, it's not a technical limitation.

I have a OnePlus 5t phone which worked fine as a hotspot on the AT&T network.  So, how can I see a roadmap of phones that will be supported and an approximate time when?  "Check back to this page" is not a great option.

Re: Hotspot

Hello Tcoalson, 

Welcome to the Cricket Community Forum! Thank you for visiting & posting your comment. For a device to be eligible for hotspot with our service, the device must have 2 APNs for us to track hotspot usage. Unfortunately, this device does not offer this which makes it not eligible for hotspot usage on our service. Unauthorized use of Mobile Hotspot on our network will result in service suspension and/or termination. We do not have a list of devices that will be added at this time.

Re: Hotspot

This never made any sense to me either.  I want to add another line (Essential PH-1 phone) but cannot until hotspot can be used with Cricket.  It doesn't make sense that most other services can seemingly support all phones but Cricket has this strange limitation.

Re: Hotspot

I am in the same boat, but watch out if you use it they will suspend you and keep the money while suspend you.  I am suspend for that,,,,going to T-Moble how is comparable and they include hotspot in their plan,,,,,,,not matter the make of the phone
