    No service for two days now, i say no service what i actually mean is sporadic service as its on and off like the Tasmanian devils tantrums. Money back is what is needed here.

  • Chtisti

    My service has been out for two days. I can still access WiFi, but I was doing that without paying for a phone plan. What am I paying my plan for if I can’t have service for two full days?

  • Alonso

    Since AT&T purchased Cricket Wireless things have got a whole lot worse with services. New carrier may have to be thought about now.

  • Patti

    Cricket Wireless phone coverage is just dire in Charlotte.

    Overall I am happy with their service, although they never have problems taking the money each month. I just paid my bill, now I have no network and this is a Cricket customer after years of service with problems increasing dramatically in 2015.

    Cricket Wireless is a great company, but the last few days have been a little crazy with sporadic network service. Not able to make calls.

    Both Cricket and AT&T services are rather slow today, data and signal very weak indeed.
