Cricket Wireless - Connecticut, Portland - refund issue

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
On 1/9/14 I went on line to the cricket website to pay my January bill. I paid online, with my Mastercard debit card. There was an error message that said my payment didn't go through, so I called the customer service rep & made another payment over the phone. Each payment was for $36.00. On 1/11/14 I viewed my online statement & called the bank which confirmed that both payments were taken out of my account by Cricket. There was NOT a authorization hold for the 2nd payment as stated by Cricket. Both payments were taken out of the account by Cricket, who refused to refund the extra payment....

Cricket Wireless - inaccurate charges

I have been a cricket customer for since 2011. On November 1, 2013, I went to a cricket store to make some upgrades onto my account. I upgraded phones for both of my lines. When I purchased the phone, I specifically asked if the amount that I was paying included my monthly service. I asked because it played a factor in determining which phone I could afford. I was told by two different women in the store that my monthly charges were included and my bill would not be due until December 1st. That was agreeable to me so I went ahead and bought the more expensive phone. After two days I received a text...

I purchased (online) a handset from Cricket. Order Date: 2012-11-29 Order Number: 143989760 I have not been able to use my Cricket handset since 12/6/12 and still not able to.

EVERY rep tells me I need to pay MORE MONEY to...

April 2, 2012, I contacted Cricket through phone and ordered a cell phone. I paid with my debit card and received the phone on April 3rd. The phone worked for 24 hours and then all of a sudden just died. When I contacted Cricket representatives last night I was told that I would have to pay 37.12 more and then they would activate the phone for me, they also told me that it would take 24 to 48 hours to get the phone reactivated. The representative that I was talking to was from overseas and I never got any help except to be called a liar. Last night I called another division and was told that there...

I recently experienced a very poor response to my complaint about my broadband connection issues. I experienced frequent connection problems with my broadband modem. I went to company to complain and was told to do a field test or trouble shoot.. I complied and found connection problems continued. I went to store and was told that I needed to pay for replacing the modem. When I asked what caused the problem, I was told nothing. When I ask for a copy of the report on the field test I was told I could not receive it. I was told to call customer service, which I did but was cut off repeatedly.

Cricket Wireless - Missouri - poor service, false advertising

Thank you, Cricket, for making it so darn easy to switch to another internet provider.

I was a loyal Cricket customer for three years. I live in St. Louis, Missouri, and believe it or not, three years ago high speed internet was not available in south St. Louis, where I live. Even ATT had dial-up only. Seems that companies here do not want to pay for underground internet/cable set-ups.

Everything was okay at first. I knew that Cricket was not broadband or high speed as they claimed. It was dial-up, and I was fine with that. Set up was quick and easy. I was working...

Although I've been with Cricket for two years this month, I'm at a point now where I am really starting to hate their service. For one, unlike any of their other competitors in the mobile phone services industry, Cricket's service coverage really sucks. I understand that they are mainly based in metropolitan areas, but I've had so many times where I have had calls drop or my signal strength just vanishes that I've lost count. I get tired of talking to family and being told that they cannot hear me, and it sounds like I'm really far away. And this is well within their...

I bought a Cricket Wireless ZTE phone from Cell Phones For Less on May 9th. I had it for one day and the phone stopped working. You can still hear it but you can't see anything. When I tried to bring it back they told me it was my fault and refused to fix it, replace it, or give me a refund. They said I dropped it in water or spilled something on it. I know for a fact that this is not true!! I HAD IT ONE DAY!! It was working fine when I put it in my pocket and when I took it out, it didn't work anymore. There is no possible way I spilled anything on it! I will be filing complaints with...

Cricket Wireless - INSANE

Cricket is used to be a good company, not until recently. Here are the changes the company recently made to chase away their customers. I bought a Samsung Vitality phone at Best Buy for $40 with free Bluetooth speaker. Tried to activate the phone by calling their toll free number, the mans voice Automated system is the worst. Whenever I pressed the option to speak to a live agent is quickly said no agents are available and that this call cannot continue and hangs up on me. So I went to a cricket store, agent there told me that the only plan I could go with is the $55 unlimited plant with only 1000...

I signed up for Cricket's service a few months ago and I've had nothing but problems with this particular store owner. Cricket as a whole service is fine and I did find a better location but for anybody in my area planning on switching to Cricket, Do not go to this store. The guy that owns it is a thief and will sell you crap and whatever to make as much money as possible. He gave me two horrible phones, never gave me the rebate and lied to me on a continuous basis. I paid $80 for a $30 phone because he was supposed to give me a rebate and I never got it. He will cheat you out of money,...

I referred three of my kids to get cricket service in 2011 and it has been a complete disaster for all of them. Cricket gave them free android phones, but little did they know that would be the best thing cricket has ever done. They have experience being cut off after paying their bill, not being able to text, and most of all when they text it keeps sending their messages about 5 times per message. My daughters service was cut off, because she did not pay her bill. We went to the location in Springdale, Ohio, only to find out that location was not a corporate store. So the employee in Springdale...

My service AND Business Account was terminated in less than a month after I paid the small monthly service fee due(A LONG TIME CUSTOMER SINCE THEY OPENED). My phone account number 4094334785 was terminated and given to a Lady who stays in Beaumont Texas. The Corporate Division wants me to get a new number and I disagree but decided to move to a different service Company. I did not request for this to happen to my previous listed number and the bill I pay on time at my local store. I paid for lost phones I purchased at this Company and they are lost and have not been returned to claim at the Store...
