@Muhammad Roberts Yes, when your billing cycle starts over and everything refreshes back to 0 again then you will become what's known as the "highest priority" once again and return to your fast speeds until you reach 22gb again.
@boaring I was just going through my comments here and it looks like I may have missed replying to you.. I apologize. You will have to manually change your plan to the new $60 plan as it does NOT change automatically. You can do this either through the My Cricket app or by logging into your account online and making the change :)
I'm still on the 70 wife is on the 60. I was really curious if there if a different. To be honest with mine I have no lag on videos @ 1080. With hers same video it lags. @ 720 she has no issues. You would think there would not be a difference. I think there is. As far as everything else we have had zero issues. She's running a honor6x and I'm running a mate 9. Also coverage while traveling or in rural areas fantastic. My only advice and this is just need personally I tried a cricket branded phone it worked ok but sucked in rual areas. I bought the phones we have now and the same areas I'd been before with little to no service with the unlocked phone which has all bands works perfectly. Just my two cents. And we turned that data saver crap off. I need good coverage and decent internet. Cricket for me does the job. Sure it's not the fastest but for I need I find it nice that no matter what my bill is exactly the same every month. Plus to be honest I've had to go to a store twice for issues with service I found them to be extremely helpful and resolved the issue on the spot. If you don't go anywhere the TMobile would be better for speed or metro. I need coverage not no service!!!
I also second the great coverage of AT&T in more rural areas compared to T-Mobile and Sprint! It is also amazing that the type of phone can indeed vary on the amount of service that you get, I have experienced this myself in the past.. Thanks for sharing your experience with the community here!!
That is unfortunate, not every carrier can provide service "everywhere" unfortunately.. On a side note, in Northern Wisconsin (where I am at) the two most popular carriers are Verizon & AT&T.. I get people who flip between the two carriers all the time as neither one is honestly super consistent. Thanks for watching for for taking the time to comment your experience!
Most definitely the iPhone 6s (as long as it is unlocked).. As far as the Samsung goes (possibly, as long as it is GSM compatible and unlocked).. You can use this link to check and see if your phones are compatible: https://www.cricketwireless.com/cell-phones/bring-your-phone also, as far as unlimited video streaming, YES If you opt for the Unlimited 4G LTE data plan that will include unlimited video streaming!
This is very disappointing. Sure the $70 is more expensive, but I was getting high speed internet. But now youtube is buffering all the time and downloads are taking forever. They should've stayed with the original price.
Since Cricket implemented the data deprioritization after 22gb, they have also implemented a feature known as "Stream More" which forces video content to play in 480p quality.. Since you are on the Unlimited Plan, I would recommend turning this off as you don't want/need it. I'm not sure what phone you have but you should be able to find the setting to turn off Steam More within the My Cricket App or also by logging into your My Cricket Account online.. This will get you back to your regular 720p/1080p streaming!! Give this a try.
I don't know which plan i should get I'm usually home and use wifi and only go to work and i go out here and there and might need international calls to call to the Caribbean for my family shit idk mayn
Cricket's plans do not support international calling, so if you do choose Cricket, you're probably going to have to make your international calls over some soft of VoIP app which will use data instead of minutes. Either way, all of Cricket's plans include unlimited calling and texting within the U.S. it all just depends on how much high speed data that you think that you would need, keep in mind, you could always change your plan at any time if you needed to!!
Hi can you please let me know where to go online and activate my new cricket Sim card I was looking for it but it says to put my order but I just want to activate my micro SIM card I hope you can help thanks.
If I happen to get the opportunity and find someone who is local and looking to switch to Cricket, i'll be sure to make a video on how to "keep your number" and make a port your number into Cricket video.. Honestly, the reason that they ask (like I stated before) is to verify that you OWN your phone number and let Cricket do the "dirty work" in contacting the company in order to grab the phone number out of their system and port it over to Cricket.. Hope that makes some sense.. Give it a try once more if you are ambitious later on down the road.. I have not heard of anyone having as many issues that you are having trying to keep their number and bring it over to Cricket.. It's just strange.. for sure

Is cool I gave up. lol I just put minutes to my phone maybe next time I try It took me 2 hours and I couldn't I needed my account number and that's why it didn't work but now I know next time I have T-Mobile I was going to get $50 credit but i was new you should do a video how to activate your cricket SIM card and what they will ask well if you want. I never been asked all this social security and other things they asked it was weird cAuse you said is prepaid.
Cricket is a prepaid company.. Since you are "taking your number with you" it will ask you for that information to verify that you are indeed the primary holder of your current phone number.. I would continue to go through the prompts and answer the questions so that the process can continue.. Let me know if you finally make it through and get it to work..
I removed it as I have exceeded my allotted referrals for the year of 2017. Look around the comments, and maybe some of my other Cricket videos on my channel. Sometimes people post their referral link that you might be able to use..
I hear ya there.. Cricket does not do the financing btw, it's offered through "Progressive Leasing" https://www.cricketwireless.com/l/cell-phone-payment-plan.html I've honestly never been a fan of leasing a phone through a provider. I would recommend the BYOP (bring your own phone) option which would be to buy the phone Unlocked GSM compatible and then buy one of the BYOP sim cards, that way you won't have to worry about going through Progressive Leasing and the possibility of getting screwed over. If you need to lease, maybe contact Samsung and see if they offer any sort of leasing program, it's worth a shot I suppose.. I've never looked into it personally though. FYI, i'm an iPhone guy (so I am not sure what Samsung offers as far as leasing goes). Best of luck to you :)
I apologize for any inconvenience, since I have reached my MAXIMUM number of referrals allowed per the referral program for the current year of 2017 I have removed the link as it will no longer work. Also, Cricket recently incorporated their referral program into their Cricket Rewards app. More info on that can be found here: https://www.cricketwireless.com/support/account-management/cricket-rewards-program/customer/referral-rewards.html On occasion, there are people who do share "their referral link" down in the comments, maybe check out the comments section and see if anyone has posted a link that you can use. If there is any way that I can assist you regarding Cricket, let me know, i'm happy to help where I can :)
You sure can! You will just need to purchase one of their "Bring Your Own Phone Sim Card Kits".. You will also need to make sure that the device that you are planning to use is an UNLOCKED GSM phone. Note, ALL AT&T phones work as they are the same network. Be sure to double check to see if your phone is compatible by visiting the following link: https://www.cricketwireless.com/cell-phones/bring-your-phone if you have any other additional questions, feel free to ask. Happy to help :)
Currently.. at this point in time, Cricket isn't offering hotspot as an "add on feature for the Unlimited Plan" unfortunately. You've gotta go with who will meet your needs and if T-Mobile offers reliable service in your area at a competitive price. plus gives you what you want, definitely check them out!! T-Mobile offers NO COVERAGE in Northern Wisconsin where I am at so "my best option" for both the value and the money is Cricket.. MANY people are in the same boat as I am and are pretty happy with what Cricket does offer. Best of luck on what you decide :)
Absolutely!! I feel that within the next coming months or within the next year or so that they will bump the download speed.. as we get closer to 5G and to also stay competitive. I also agree with you about them making Hotspot a standard feature on their plans as well. Time will tell.. :)
METROPCS $50 UNLIMITED PLAN... IS WAY BETTER.... THRESHHOLD IS 30gb. before deprioritization... CRICKET $60 THRESHOLD $22 gb before depriotization... NO GOOD.. CRICKET WIRELESS SIGNAL IS JUST AVERAGE ANYWAY 480pp video streaminh for $60 ... while metropcs.. $60 HAS 8gb hotspot and HD VIDEOS..... I SWITCHED TO METROPCS
You've gotta compare and go with what carrier works best FOR YOU! But.. as far as myself and many others included, (where T-Mobile does not provide service) Cricket Wireless is indeed the best option for both the coverage and the money, also with all taxes and fees included. By the way, Cricket also offers more 4G LTE coverage which means that they have a larger coverage map than T-Mobile as well :)
Cosmic Charlie your right I need to learn that your using a cricket sim card meant for a smartphone in a mifi device to power your home with LTE WiFi! your breaking the terms and conditions of fair use listed on their website and so now with people like you carriers have to protect themselves and their other customers from again people like u abusing the network!
Cosmic Charlie geez man it's people like u that caused the deprioritization in the first place. 300GBs in one month is just nothing but video streaming all day every day! with that said I'm glad even after the huge abuse they still didn't throttle your speeds
I have several people who are on the case and will report back to me after April 2nd who are on the Unlimited Plan, and after they have used over 22GB of data to get an "accurate estimate" of what it actually is. From what I have now heard from several people now, is that the deprioritization speed is going to be 3mbps however, since the deprioritization process has not started yet, I am unable to confirm this for myself. Stay tuned to the channel for what I find out in the upcoming month as far as the actual data deprioritization speed is :)
It was at the time of this recording. Now it looks to me like they have removed it from their website. I have just checked the "My Cricket" app and see that you can still get it (the Pro plan), who knows how long that will be around for though.. So, it does look like they are getting rid of that one and just keeping 4 plan options to choose from. Great question, thanks for asking!
The new $60 Unlimited plan is available to everyone (both new and existing customers) and is replacing the $70 plan. You will have to manually change to the $60 UNLIMITED plan (it will not automatically change for you). You can do this a few different ways including downloading and using the My Cricket App on your phone to make the plan change, logging in online to your Cricket account via the website.. also, by calling customer service or you could stop into a Cricket store and have them make the change. Any other questions you have, don't hesitate to let me know. Always glad to help! Thanks for stopping by the channel :)
I see that T-Mobile just bumped their deprioritization to 30GB, that is cool! Everyone must do their research and ultimately go for the carrier that will meet their needs. T-Mobile is a good network (if you get service in your area) but, once you travel outside of a T-Mobile service area and start to "roam", mostly on AT&T, that is where T-Mobile has a major disadvantage. Where I'm at, I can't get T-Mobile (no coverage area) and AT&T works awesome, so that's why i'm with Cricket, one of the BEST deals in wireless on AT&T's network (which covers a lot more people than T-Mobile). I do expect to see most of not all companies begin to bump their data deprioritization to a greater limit within the coming months (all to stay competitive). Ultimately, this is great for customers :)
Cricket explained to me that after 22gb they will slow you down to 3mbps. This is a relief to hear because other carriers tend to slow it down to 2g speeds. 3mbps isnt bad at all. Im totally cool with this.
Right!! This is kind of what I was thinking myself because Cricket already caps you to 8MB down MAX right off the bat. This is still honestly, one of the BEST deals in the wireless industry. Thanks for sharing :)
The $70 Unlimited plan has been "replaced" with the $60 Unlimited plan.. so it's $10 cheaper.. If you are currently on the $70 plan you have to go and "manually make the change" to the NEW $60 Unlimited plan. You can do this a few different ways.. Either by using the My Cricket App on your phone, by logging into your account online (and changing the plan), or by stopping into a Cricket store, or you can call Cricket customer service and let them know that you want to change to the NEW $60 Unlimited plan. Hope I was able to answer this for you :)
I used to be on Cricket's $70 plan before switching back to Verizon. Now I wanna switch back again lol. It would be such an amazing deal if they got rid of the 8 Mbps cap, now that they have deprioritization. I guess we wait and see for that
Eddie Blotnicki III AT&T just added unlimited data to their prepaid service, GoPhone. $65 ($60 with autopay) and speed capped at 3 mbps. They also upped the $45 prepaid plan data from 4 GB to 6 GB. More competitive.
Eddie Blotnicki III that is actually a great point that they made. Since AT&T has an unlimited plan for $60 capped at 3 Mbps, and cricket has 8 Mbps for $60, it would be an even larger divide and would be too obvious to go to cricket. I may still do it even with the cap! 8 Mbps is plenty
Straight Talk is an "OK" network. They utilize and use both GSM and CDMA towers based on the type of phone and sim card that you have. As far as a prepaid network goes, they offer some pretty good deals but Straight Talk does not offer Unlimited 4G LTE data, so this is not an option for people that need the UNLIMITED HIGH SPEED data. Thanks for your input and for tuning in :)
I actually just got done filming a food review for my channel (which will be uploaded later tonight) and while I was in the area, I stopped into an actual authorized Cricket Wireless Authorized Retailer Store to talk to them a bit on the new $60 Unlimited plan. They confirmed to me that the price change is a permanent change but that the deprioritization will not take affect until April 2nd along with the additional features that Cricket will be slowly rolling out. I stop into Game Stop here and there, and it seems that every time I go in there, they don't have "great knowledge" as far as Cricket goes on a network standpoint, their main job is to just sell their phones and the service (at least, this is the case with the Game Stop by me).
Download speeds are capped at 8MB for LTE and 4MB for 4G (fallback for LTE). These speeds are plenty fast for "most" of what you'd need to do on a smartphone. The capped speeds are not an issue for what I do on a phone which is watch Youtube, browse the web and socialize on my social media platforms. For the price you really can't beat it and if you want the Unlimited then Cricket is honestly the way to go! :)
