    Old carrier 4 bars, Cricket gets 1 maybe 2

    My old GSM carrier got bought out by US Cellular, who bought spectrum and equipment, wasn't interested in the customers. So came to Cricket and picked the cheapie $25 talk and text only. My old carrier consistently got a solid 4 bars here and Cricket is fighting to stay at 1, sometimes I get 2. I called Cricket CS and was told it was because I didn't have 4G-LTE data on my plan. To me that sounds like crappola, that data or no data isn't going to change tower location. My last run with AT&T had the same lousy signal here, and this is where the phone is 85% of the time.

    So, who is right, any clue ???

    Thanks, appreciate any help you can give.

    green bay is covered 100% by 4g LTE. . you could be in a location that has better 4g than 3g/edge/2g. the phone you got may nott have the proper bands to operate on the spectrum cricket operates in your area as well.

    Thumbs down

    Don't feel bad. Had cricket service for years. Good reception. Bought new phone after ATT screw up and now service is useless. Asked for unlock code for new phone. Was told had to be on service 4 months. What bull shit. What about the years I was on it before ATT? Worst service in-America. Needs to close down and quit taking money for absolutely nothing. Does anyone know if anything is being done about reception?
