I just flashed a samsung u340 to crickets network. The spc code has reset, but the security code will not reset. I was wondering if anyone could shine some light on this issue. I have never had a problem like this with a u340 before

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.
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.
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.
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
