Typically the flashing of any phone to a different network is done by a representative of the network. I recommend contacting a Cricket representative and asking if your current Sprint phone can be flashed.

I want to flash a metropcs phone to cricket


Flash or Flashing--Technically, flashing refers to the overwriting or re-writing of the phone's firmware. There are many phones which can be flashed to cricket with all features working. On most CDMA phones, programming the phone can be done "over the air" by dialing a special code, usually *228 or some variation. Colloquially speaking, flashing can also loosely mean making a phone from one carrier work on another carrier. The easy way to tell the difference is that if your phone does NOT take a SIM card, then it is probably CDMA.

To flash a phone to cricket you will be overwriting th phones firmware. The firmware is software in the phone that doesn't change when you turn it off, and it cannot be deleted unless it is overwritten, hence flashed. It requires specific files called prl files.PRL or PRL File--Short for Preferred Roaming List--A small text file containing instructions for how a phone connects to a specific network's radio towers It is usually loaded by connecting the phone to a computer to overwrite its data. There are a few tools used such as a pst PST--Short for Phone Service Tool or Tools--Special software used by phone manufacturers to program their phones. And also a monster file - -"Monster File"/"Monster Pack", ROM, or "Kitchen"--System software that is needed to flash a phone.

In almost all case you will need to access the phones service programming menu- - -Service Programming Menu--A special menu typically hidden from the primary User Interface that allows for "deep programming" of a phone.You will also need access to msl and spc codes specific to the device you are flashing.MSL/SPC--Special six-digit codes needed to access service programming features on the phone. Access to the service programming menu can be disabled in a phone's firmware.

Depending on your phone, it may require extra steps to unlock or get WAP and MMS working. That is why you need the msl/spc codes to allow deep programming to unlock these features. Not all phones will be capable to access wap or send and receive mms.

Ringtones generally have to be prepaid using a flex bucket. It is best to download ringtones before you flash your phone to cricket since they have a limited selection of ringtones and wallpapers.There are cases were flashed phones will not be able to download ringtones directly from cricket.

The details outlined above will not only work with cricket but you can also flash phones to metro pcs using the information provided above. It is best to do all your research before purchasing your phone to ensure that the cell phone you are interested in can be flashed to cricket or metro PCs

MY PHONE WAS FLASHED FROM SPRINT TO CRICKET IS THERE A REASON THAT I AM UNABLE TO ACCESS CRICKET'S APPPS


Unfortunately flashed phones do not have the ability to access cricket apps, and cricket cannot guarentee any of your other features either. Now that cricket has lowered the prices on their phones as well as released some very nice ones you are much better off getting an authentic cricket.

I work at a Premiere Dealer and we do not even attempt to sell our flashed phones that we have in stock because they create so many problems for the customers.. in fact when someone asks to purchase one we do everything we can to convince them otherwise, even though we make more money selling flashed phones.

Flashe sprint lg to cricket


Once the device is flashed not all services are guaranteed to work. You will want to call cricket technical support to see if they have insight on why this may not be working and have them check your acccount.

How to flash samsung rant from sprint to cricket


For the flash you will want to take your device to a cricket indirect dealer. Direct Cricket stores will not flash your phone.

Cost varies depending on what store you take it to.

Cricket also cannot guarantee that all features will work and if something doesnt work they will tell you tough luck. They dont provide support for non cricket devices.

How do i convert alltel razor to cricket wireless


I also have a razor, and my phone company is cricket. When some one wants to change service to another company, sometimes the company they are switching to can "flash" the phone with the companys particular software, thus making it function with the new service. However, Im not sure if cricket has the capabilites to do this. Personally, ive been using cricket for close to five years, and I can honestly say that in means of customer service and quality, cricket is not the way to go. Im personally planning on switching to Verizon or Sprint soon and just buying a new phone altogether due to the lack of quality the phone and the service from cricket provides. Ive gone through several phones from cricket, and they were all fairly shabby. As a rule, DONT buy a Kyocera phone from cricket, they are cheap and not meant to last.
