It may be a coincidence but I've noticed these problems ever since upgrading from Nougat to Oreo 8.0 on my Moto Z Play.
It's not ALL the time but it enough to be REALLY annoying. Text and emails can take up to hours before i get them. Friend messaged me and it didn't show up till over an hour after he sent it thru Hangouts. Sister sent a message through WhatsApp and that took over an hour till I got it. Same with the stock Android message app.
Also calls not coming through. My sister called 3x the other day and I never heard the call or even had a notification that she called 3 times.
I already reset my network and all that stuff. Any ideas? It's become problematic...don't really want to leave Cricket but if Cricket is the problem then I have no option
true they will provide service but you will pay ridiculously for it I just switched from AT&T 5 lines paying almost $300 a month for 4 lines and now with cricket I have 5 lines for only $125 a month im not going anywhere I have good services it might be your phone spend the extra money and geat a real phone its worth it people expect a cheap $100 phone to work like a $1000 phone its not going to happen sorry
Cell Phones, Plans and Service from Cricket
Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
Any surprise taxes or fees (which can really add up) - With Cricket, taxes are included in your bill, so you know exactly what to expect. For a list of our current fees, view our Charges & Fees page.
2. Decide how satisfied you are with your current cell phone
"Bring Your Own Phone" BYOP - If you want to keep your phone, bring it to Cricket - just make sure it's unlocked and compatible with our network.
Get a brand new smartphone - Had your eye on one of the hottest new phones? Just need an inexpensive device that does the job? We've got a variety of prepaid smartphones, many with great incentives when you switch to Cricket.
