I just had the dumbest interaction ever with Cricket support via chat. I was trying to add the fifth line and order a SIM. The website kept giving me the error "This address has already been used for the maximum number of orders". The chat guy said I had to go into a store to get the fifth card. I was like, "Aren't they going to charge me $25 for that?" He says, yeah, that's the only way to add another line.
So I told him I had exhausted his helpfulness, and closed the chat. Then I changed the billing address of my CC to my work, and proceeded to order the fifth card from the Cricket website, thus time without the error.
These people are turning away money?!?! It's crazy to have to jump through hoops to pay someone money for something.
