Are there intermolecular forces between ions in an ionic compound? If there are, what are they? Do all ionic compounds exist as crystals? Quick explanations please.

If there are no molecules, there cannot be intermolecular (or intramolecular) forces

If there are, what are they?
The forces between ions are referred to as electrostatic forces or ionic bonds.

Do all ionic compounds exist as crystals?
Crystals are just higly ordered solids, most pure substances can exist as crystals.
