Welcome to Cricket Users!

  • Change your Caller ID username.

    Some people don't like it when their full name is displayed or run a business and would like that name displayed on Caller IDs.

    Whatever your reason is, as a member of My Cricket Forum you can get it changed. Please use the contact us link at the very bottom of the page to make your request.

      Since your message below says the caller ID change service is not currently available, is there another option for making the change?

      I just added another line and discovered the name on caller ID is apparently the person who previously used the phone number, even though I asked at the time of order that my wife's name be the name to display.

      Today the answer I get from phone support is the routine lead time for the name to be updated is as long as thirty (30!!) days. Are they sending carrier pigeons from the Phillipines??

      I haven't tried checking with a company store, but the nearest such store is an hour away, so I'm hoping there is another way.

      I have a similar question. I am paying for a cell phone for my mom and potentially other family members. I like being the main account holder and I thought there was a way to change the name on the cricket caller id - now is my name, but would like the display name to be the name of the family member. I'm looking on after signing in and I don't see a place to change the caller id display name.

      Any ideas ? Seems like this would be an issue for many families.
