Activating phones

Okay I live in St Louis, and I bought ... »

Cricket tells me this isn't a TriBand phone. What I'm reading I have no way to find this out. There are a million of these phones being sold on Ebay and ALL say they will only work for Cricket. Is this a marketing ploy by Cricket to make me buy their phones... or is this a issue with the ebay sellers? ... »

Don't purchase online

I bought the "Samsung Messager R450" for my step daughter. I could not get the phone activated and neither could the service reps at the Cricket store. I had to call to get a RA number to have it sent back. So now I have to pay to have the phone shipped back that was DOA. I find something wrong with that policy. Evil or Very Mad

Cricket (Austin, TX) - Great Coverage - Service & Value

I'm a Cricket user and have been for the past 4 months now. I use it everywhere in Austin and throughout Central Texas. I also have AT&T Wireless as well but have reduced my minutes to lowest plan as Cricket provides me with umlimited minutes, texting and voice mail for $35 a month. I have used Cricket from Georgetown TX to past San Antonio TX without any dropped calls and excellent coverage. I'm not too sure why some people play down Crickets coverage and service when indeed its almost equal to AT&T within the Metropolitian areas. I have no problems receiving/placing calls anywhere in the Austin metropolitan areas and some suburbs but then again if you live out on Lake Travis you will find some areas work best on AT&T. If your work/pla...

Does Cricket have text msg logs available?

I am curious if cricket has text msg logs available for law enforcement.
I am involved in a case where my ex was threatening my life and assaulted me.
Her text msgs would confirm my alegations.
Seems like there should be some record of text msgs and the content on a server somewhere.
keep getting different answers. Does anyone know?

Text to landline

A friend of mine has Cricket and I have sprint. We live in the South Texas area and Cricket recently came to our area. When I text him Sprint thinks his # is a landline # and sends me a text telling me that the message was successfully delivered to a person or a voicemail/answering machine. Cricket said this is a known issue with Sprint and that # (he has no problems with texting other carriers), I was wondering if anyone anywhere else have this same problem? Would CS or tech support over the phone be able to fix it? (They told him it would fix itself in 48 hours of activation, but still has not been resolved) Or should he go back to the store? I keep insisting to do it over the phone but he insists to go to the store. The stores aren't real...

Moto RAZR, problem with coverage

Okay, so starting yesterday, all of a sudden, I was trying to make calls and getting this message "This phone is not authorized for use at this time. Please call customer service"

Ended up calling technical support, who reset the features on my phone, then it worked again. But, now, in the area where 1X coverage is usually shown, I have this little symbol that says 3G. Does anyone know what this means? Has anyone else seen this problem?

BTW, I have an old generation MOTO RAZR
