I bought this ph... moreMy cricket Nokia C5 Endi is garbage.Phone is 3days old and it's dropping calls,very slow and people can't hear me..Taking it back today cause it gets worse from here.Just bought a Samsung A01 from Cricket six months ago and it was on the verge of shutting after months of issues I'm seriously wondering is it a Cricket issue selling messed up phones out of their stores I've been a Cricket customer since 2014 and my first cricket Samsung phone lasted 5 years,4 in good working condition and it died in year 5.(2019).Now 3 phones in 2 years ,2 phones in six months.I might change carriers
I'm not sure what is wrong with everyone saying it's the phone or Cricket. It's a simple issue really. The simple card and phone are not set up properly to work right. That's what causes the phone to freeze , drop calls , turn off , lose internet. I've had this problem when I put a Cricket Sim in a LG K20 plus from Verizon. It did the same thing until I got the network connectivity settings right. It worked perfect once I figured it out.
I needed a new phone because my old one was one Cricket was no longer providing service to. I don't understand that but that's what they told me. The sales person told me she could give me a great deal on this Nokia C5 Endi. 30 bucks! Well if something seems too good to be true, it is! I wondered why it would stop, freeze, and just stay on one page no matter where or what it was. I finally googled it and found this site. I'm going to tolerate this phone a while longer, then I am going to DROP CRICKET for scamming me. I just hope I don't need to call an emergency number and the damn thing is froze up!
Working on my 3rd Nokia phone ,all are dropping audio ? have been to cricket store and calling customer care for hours ,they refuse to issue a refund ? what kind of business is this ???
Rafael Toledo, 16 Feb 2021Its true its freezing up ..i tried everythingI have this phone. From day one it had major problems called Cricket - they said buy a new phone - it got sent to Nokia repair in TX - they sent me a new phone - having some problems but not the same ones - I think this phone is not compatible with Cricket. . . Going to switch carriers as soon as I can.
Either these reviews are all lies or a bunch of people somehow got a bad batch of phones. I've had my Nokia for about 5 months & I haven't really had one problem with it. It works perfectly fine. Texting, calls, surfing. The speaker is the loudest speaker I've ever heard on a phone also which is a nice problem to have. Just turn it down. Only thing I don't know about is the cameras cause I don't use them. Phone works perfectly well.
I've only had the phone a week and I haven't been able to accomplish jack squat and Cricket Wireless's only go to solution is to sell me a BRAND NEW PHONE every single time.
Anywho, freezes up constantly, stop and go typing and scrolling (it's taken me about 10 minutes to get this far), drops every call as soon as I try and answer, does not recognize pin number if I have to reenter it after awhile until I restart it, restarting the phone is also a challenge at times since it's against the laws of nature to open the back and remove the battery for a sec, and it'll crash 2 or 3 times every single hour. Youtube Music doesn't seem to be affected though. It's about the only app I use that'll continue chugging along while everything else is going bat shit crazy. Google never addresses the feedback that they ask for when an app isn't responding so a big "What's up with that BS Google?" is totally deserved. I want to keep the phone if I can get Beelzebub himself out of it. The buttload of storage is what I've been wanting. Already installed my favorite apps and I have room for many more. Just need someone to give me a solution or advice on what to do. Technically challenged here in Amarilly Tejas but willing to learn.
One of my friends decided to ignore my advice in getting a pre-owned Note 5 or GS7 and instead got this pos phone. He can't send any video files through messages and he just got that phone about a week ago

This phone is disappointing. The proximity sensor causes issues when on calls requiring use of the number pad during the call, because the screen stays black. The processor is woefully slow. At random times the screen will completely freeze and require an app reboot. Don't waste uour money
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2020man, some of these reviews suck,I use my phone for company use, i take alot of pictures of all... moreAgree for the price is great no problems if u want a better phone get a 6 gig ram 128 gig
Piece of crap. Can't even take a video. Freezes up and loses the vid. Take a picture, it freezes and loses the pic. Have to reset at least 9 times a day. Biggest waste of money I ever did. JUNK!

Karen, 14 Feb 2021I have all the same issues...freezing up going black flashing on and off wrong password slow c... moreI am having the exact same issues. The wrong password keeps happening. I have issues with mms not downloading. I can barely use the camera because it freezes all the time. And I get System UI errors all the time. I have never had such a bad phone
Couldn't help but comment on this topic after reading all these reviews. I bought this phone because I was in a jam and my daily driver had just crapped out on me. I typically only buy factory unlocked phones because I'm an amateur developer. I've used more phones than probably anyone that's left a review and I have to agree with the person that claimed these must all be fake reviews. A.k.a. false reviews in an attempt to make Nokia look bad. Other than the fact I just don't like Android 10 this phone is pretty damn solid. My last phone had a little better specs as far as hardware and yet this thing out performs it on every level. Very surprising. Haven't encountered a single one of these issues that are being listed. Actually I've yet to encounter an issue other than just not liking Android 10 but obviously that's not Nokia or Cricket. Seriously people get a life. This phone is definitely worth buying. Hands down.
I have all the same issues...freezing up going black flashing on and off wrong password slow camera moment is over before camera comes on sometimes 15 seconds. I have returned the phone and got a replacement...same issues I need to turn off and back on 5/6 times a day. I never hated a phone more.
