    I no longer have their service but did during this time frame, is there anything I should or could do?

    ADMIN – Hi Delia,

    I believe you can still file.

    • Ulando Hill says:

      I had service with them 3 times I bought their phones that was supposed to be unlocked phones

  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.

    • Jamie Postpichal says:

      I completely understand your frustration! I went through the exact same thing here in Missouri. Fortunately, I still have all of the phones I purchased and I still have the same phone number that they gave me back in 2011. I have not been with Cricket for years. I had an attorney contact me years ago and ask me to be the class representative for the class action law suit. I agreed. It is on going. The definitely knew what they were doing when they cheated everyone. I just wanted you to know that you are not alone in this.

    • Sam says:

      Something similar happened to me. My phone broke. I had paid for the warranty when I bought the phone. The replacement phone was refurbished and very, very slow. I believe other people have been scammed by paying for the warranty only to receive a lower quality replacement. I believe we could file a class action lawsuit.

  3. Olivia T. Fischer says:
