Audiovox CDM8910 Issues

I have an audiovox CDM8910, without a sim card. I have Cricket service which does not require a sim card. Sometimes it will say I have full signal, yet I cannot send nor recieve texts, calls, or voicemails. There is no pattern to when it works and when it doesnt. But it normaly only works for a time period of 10 minutes, then it goes back to not working. No one else with this service is having these issues. The batterie is constantly dying, even if it was charging for hours. It worked fine when I first got it, but about a month into it this happened. I bought a new battery thinking that could be it, and that batterie actually NEVER works. Sometimes the phone will not work for days. It constantly cuts my calls, and never stays charged. It would normaly say "Charging is Complete" when it is, but if it ever does say that anymore its normaly once every week or two. The error messages it displays when the texts fail are either "SMS Connection Fail" or something along the lines of general failure (sorry I cant remember that one exactly). But its very frustrating, and has left me in quite the situations. If anyone can help that would be great.

I have T-Mobile service and sim do I get my service ported to my cricket zte source 9511

As long as your Cricket ZTE Source is unlocked you should be able to take use your T-Mobile SIM card and access your T-Mobile service. If installing your SIM card in your phone does not work then you would need to have your phone unlocked.

Why cant I recieve text from a number that I have previously sent hundreds of messages to in the past. I have cricket & the recipiant has verizon both companies say it's the other ?? I can send the...

When you port a number over from another company then you begin to have issues receiving texts from that previous company. They can re-port your number for free if you explain it to them and they talk to the department that does the number porting, but if you use FlexPay then they can't "re-port the number". They usually are willing to change your number though.
Have the service books resent to the Verizon user. If they are sending pictures, make sure you can receive those from your provider.
Try this also:

Put your number in where it says phonenumber on the link.
You need to have mms multimedia messaging. By default cricket users that just have text messaging do not get a email addy. The txt msgs are routed by crickets network.

Won't turn on

If you battery pack is swollen, then the worst thing to do is keep it in there and let it turn off and back on -- this could cause permanent damage to the device and could harm you as well.

Try and find a new battery on Ebay,, etc. and see if the problem is the battery or not. If it is, then that is the simple solution.

If the new battery doesn't fix it, then the situation is a little more sticky. Since the Audiovox 8910 is a fairly old phone, it is unlikely that you have any warranty left on the phone (unless you have insurance or have purchased it through Virgin Mobile, which in that case, go ahead and file the insurance claim or call VM and ask for a replacement or buy a refurbished one). 

Most likely you will come out cheaper just buying a new phone altogether or finding a nice used one on Ebay.

I need to activate my phone

If it is a GSM phone you activate it by placing your SIM card in the slot, put in the battery and turn it on. If it is any other technology you will need to take it to a shop that is authorized to set up phones for your service and they will program it for your phone number and type of service.
