    ADMIN – Hi Delia,

    I believe you can still file.

  2. Olivia T. Fischer says:

    I’ve been with Cricket for over 8 years now; I had left them to go with AT&T and decided to go back to Cricket even though I knew it was going to be purchased by AT&T. At my return to Cricket, I had problems with the newly purchased phone from Cricket,that went completely DEAD with a blank screen, shortly thereafter, I asked for a a replacement phone since I had Insurance but salesperson said my phone was no longer in stock and they didnt sell that type phone anymore and since they were now AT&T, I would have to purchase another phone. She stated that this would be the only way to continue service, transfer of all photos and memory to a new phone! I’ve had nothing but problems with that so called “new phone” and went back a second time because the same thing happened yet again a year or so ago. I was told AGAIN, I would have to purchase yet another phone with Cricket or go to BEST BUY to purchase a cheaper phone, that would still be compatible with the Cricket Service. I went to Best Buy and they charged me $112.00 but they had NO CASES for that phone. Just two days ago, I went back to Cricket to purchase a HOTSPOT for that “compatible” cellphone to use my laptop as I travel in my Sales job and they told me I would have to purchase a CRICKET phone since the one I bought was a SAMSUNG from Best Buy and NOT Cricket!!!

    I was so upset (I used a different word) and told them this is “Bull@#$t, I’ve purchased 5 or more phones from Cricket since I’ve been with them for over 8 years now, only to get the same answer every Freakin Time I go to get some type of assistance or a plain ole HOTSPOT. Because my company AT&T phone went DEAD as well and no longer able to use that HOTSPOT, and waiting for my replacement phone, I decided to get a HOTSPOT for my personal AT&T phone at Cricket. I just spent another $148.00 for yet another NEW Cricket PHONE and hotspot because the sales rep told me that my phone was an AT&T phone and not Cricket phone, even though they were bought out by AT&T, they are still SEPERATE companies, which made no sense to me. Finally, I looked over at their phones and there was A SAMSUNG phone there for $39.99. I asked her what the difference was if it was the same type phone, why can’t I use mine and just give me the HOTSPOT. She kept saying “it’s not a Cricket phone”, you will have to purchase a new phone from us in order to give you a HOTSPOT!!. This is HIGHWAY ROBBERY!!!!. I HOPE THIS SETTLEMENT helps everyone get all our monies back! I don’t need another gigabyte or another line, I want my money refunded for all this insane and unlawful business practices by Cricket employees or sales people! I will be changing service carrier and it won’t be with AT&T either!!!!!

    ADMIN – Hi Olivia,
    While your situation sounds super frustrating I don’t think the specifics match with the nature of this settlement.

  3. Olivia T. Fischer says:

    This is a joke!! I don’t have those phones anymore because I’ve had to purchase NEW ONES from them as I stated in my earlier post! IF I DONT HAVE THOSE PHONES ANYMORE, HOW THE %$&^ AM I GOING TO GET THE IMEI NUMBER????? I DONT WANT GIGABYTES OR 1 MONTH FREE FROM CRICKET, I WANT MY MONEY BACK FOR ALL THOSE PHONES THEY SAID I HAD TO PURCHASE BECAUSE THEY WERE NOW AT&T!!!

    THIS IS DECEPTIVE BUSINESS PRACTICES AND THEY SHOULD ALL BE SHUT DOWN FOR ROBBING US ALL OF THESE NEW PURCHASE PHONES!! THEY ARENT CHEAP EITHER!!! AS LONG AS IVE BEEN WITH CRICKET, I’VE SPENT OVER $1000 OF DOLLARS ON THESE PHONES!!!

    ADMIN – Hi Olivia,

    This sure sounds frustrating.

  11. denise best says:

    when they switched over to att I had an elderly mother and I needed this phone to work but the switch over was not a smooth transfer to att. It was the only phone I had, they made me buy another phone so that I could continue my service that I didn’t have money to do, once I got the new phone there was troubles with getting good service, could not get calls in or out and the service center kept giving me the run around transferring me from number to number
