Cricket Wireless

Cricket Wireless


I had an old phone brick on me and so I ordered a Note 5 from ATT. Put a cricket sim card in it and the wifi hot spot wouldn't work. I called Cricket and they said we don't support the Note 5 with wifi hotspot and you'll have to buy one of our phones. So I go to a cricket store after I called and she said she had the phone I wanted. She goes in the back and sure enough, they are out of stock. We call around and the next day I drive 25 miles to the closest store that had the phone. I got the phone, activated it, and wifi hot spot didn't work. I went BACK and they said oh no, you have to add wifi hot spot. So I do that and wifi hotspot works. I got a wild idea and put my sim card back in my Note 5. And Viola! wifi hot spot works. I go BACK to that cricket store a 3rd time to return the brand new phone I never used and had like 30 min. She says that she can't take it back. The first cricket store told me I had 30 days. She calls the manager and they said that I had "buyers remorse" and would charge me 25 dollar restock fee and I would not get back the 25 dollar "upgrade" fee which wasn't an upgrade at all. So I paid 138 dollars total and would get back 75. I said you people are nuts I'll sell this brand new phone on Ebay for more than that. They are lying, deceiptful people. Tell me I had buyers remorse for a phone I didn't even want. If they would have added the hot spot I wouldn't have wasted 2 days with all this. I would avoid cricket if I were you.




I actually left here because I was tired of my "vacations." You can't stand up for yourself. If you are attacked, and the mods dont think it's an attack, the post stays. If you reply, you get an infraction/ban. I went on to usmessageboard and have had no issues. It's a good forum but they treat you like children.




I've been a member of many political forums so I can actually review it in comparison to others. I've seen other sites ban people (myself included) for defending themselves against attacks. At USMB, if you're attacked, fight back. It's for adults, you're expected to be an adult. The site allows you to say what you want. My only issue is that there are members who just post in the "current events" section anything they want, even something that's just an opinion without substance (think "Donald Trump is racist!) without anything of substance to back it up, and dumps it in the current events section because it's the most active section. It makes for a forum that's cluttered with a lot of junk threads, but its still good. I've been banned from numerous forums for speaking my mind, I've been on USMB for years and never even been warned. It's not perfect, but it's for adults and it's good. For the liberals complaining they get banned, I've never personally seen a liberal even get banned even when they personally attack conservatives with every post. So you must have REALLY done something wrong to get banned there. Join up and start posting, it's an active forum with good members. A few bad apples and a few idiots, but every forum has those. I've never had a run in with moderators and I've gone on the attack sometimes when people have made jabs at me.
