Before You Upgrade from a Messager II to a Blackberry or Android, READ THIS.

Cricket's technical support is barely support, and definitely not technical. SO. Please read this before you go into the store to activate your new Blackberry or Android Cricket phone.

Do you use the email software built into the Messager II? Then spare yourself a whole lot of headaches by DELETING all of those accounts from your old phone before you activate the new phone.

Why? Because Cricket sends data SMS messages to your Messager II that are related to your the mail functions on that phone. And guess what? When you switch over to the new phone, without deleting those accounts from your old phone? You will keep getting those messages - as often as every 30 minutes or so. And they will look like this:

Employee Question

I am a very accomplished sales rep and sales manager from one of the top four, but thinking about jumping ship. Can someone tell me what targeted sales compensation is for a sales rep and an assistant manager at Cricket, and a little about the comp plan, and what it is possible to make if you blow targets out of the water? If you are not comfortable with posting it on here, you can bb pin me at 30B83A10.

Many thanks in advance.

Which Phone?

I recently bought my 2nd Motorola Hint in early October. The 1st one I had, I dropped outside of my college, it went down the steps and wouldn't charge after that. Anyway, I bought my second one and the charger port thing, whatever you want to call it, is going out. Every time I plug it in to charge I have to be very careful not to nudge it or anything or else it'll stop charging, it goes off saying 'charging' 4-5 times like the plug is getting loose inside the phone. I've taken extra great care with this one since the last Hint I got had charger problems too, it would constantly say 'Unauthorized Charger' which I've never seen a phone say before lol. But I can see that this phone, and I'm guessing all Hints in general have charger port thin...

Looking for change. Possibly Page Plus Cellular

Some family members have Cricket or Revol as it is where we are. We travel and the service is not in some place we need. Page Plus has a new $39.95 Unlimited talk, Text and 20 mg plan and they use the Verizon network so I would not have dropped calls or no service. Plus my choice of phones gets better. Then with all this talk about Cricket going out of business makes me wonder. Help/suggestions??

flashing a BB

If I flash a BB Pearl from Sprint will the data work properly? I know they both use similar spectrums, both EVDO-Rev A (as does VZW) but if you bring Sprint phone to VZW for example, the data will not work, it's voice/text only. VZW also does not support flashing phones, whereas with Cricket it's almost encouraged, which makes sense given that with no phone subsidies to worry about, it's straight profit.

Cricket seriously needs to stop peddling this crappy phone.

The Samsung SCH-U340 / Snap is the crappiest phone ever, and right now, they are selling it online for $10. VERY bad phone. Mad

Cricket's online chat SUCKS!

i found out that cricket's online chat is for assisting new customers, and new activations only, but that is not what angers me.

what makes me angry is how rude the online chat reps are. i can understand that they cannot assist current customers, but there is no need to be rude about it.

i broke my phone, and i went online to look at their new phones, and the chat box pops up, and it asks if i need help shopping. i clicked yes, and the drop down menu had the option for purchasing question. since i had purchasing questions, i chose that.

the rep answered none of my questions, just told me to go to the store, and then he ended the chat, but not before telling me that he did not design the website, and that the online prices are for...
