Data speeds impossibly slow NO Video!!
Cricket changed their policies as of August 2019.... even though I did not change my plan and tend to use very little data, Cricket now THROTTLES ALL VIDEO!!! I cannot get ANYTHING to steam or playback. Every video halts after about 5 seconds. I tried to watch a 60-second promo clip and Cricket just chokes!!! Not a movie or a whole episode , just the trailer and it freezes! Cricket (and the cricket app) day you can TURN Off their streaming optimizer (Stream more) to isolate the problem...NOPE I followed their instructions to the letter and it will not turn off. The app is full of ads to upgrade service, add a line, add features, buy phone insurance, and sell sell SELL!!! Geez people I’m already on your network, just let me enjoy my MEASLY1mb/sec speeds, please!! Oh, by the way, Cricket says it works in mexico...NOPE!! I just happened to take a cruise last month and once we got to Mexico I had “NO SERVICE”. Zip, zero, nada, nothing. Couldn’t even open the app or call 611 to diagnose the issue. No phone service at all, contrary to what their online fine print says, your Cricket phone will NOT work in Mexico. I have tried to stay with Cricket to save a buck but my family is soooo mad at me for switching to Cricket!! Don’t do it! Oh, the find my friends app? Worked fine all the time until I switched to cricket. At least now I can go to the bar without my wife knowing, since the cricket network doesn’t work she cannot track me!
