Can this phone be fully flashed for cricket service?


These phones can be fully flashed if they are CDMA (no sim card) however on these phones the flash is very unstaible. You are much better off purchasing a new cricket phone, as you are guarenteed all of the features.

If you really want this phone flashed then you should look for an authorized cricket dealer or a store that flashes phones. Corporate locations (Full Service) do not flash phones.

On my Cricket Samsung phone, I cannot send or receive text messages (always says 'message undeliverable). I already reset my phone and updated it. No use. I can place calls fine, but the text issue is...


What model is that samsung phone? Is it a full flash phone or a actual crikcet phone? Usually when its undeliverable. You want to call cricket and have them make sure your texting feature is activated or provisioned properly on the switch.

Unlocked Treo 650 wont send text messages


I have the same problem using an unlocked Treo 650 on O2(UK).
One thing you need to do is make sure that the Message Centre Number is set correctly for the SIM network you are using. Get the MCN from the internet, then on the Treo Messaging > Menu > Options > Preferences > Network > Manual > Edit to check/set the MCN.

I can't send text messages with my Cricket Motorola Q


Hey, I just bought the same phone from ebay, and it was preflashed for cricket too. My phone had the same exact problem. I called cricket technical support at 1-800-274-2538 and they refreshed my flashing while i was on the phone with them. As soon as I got off the phone with them my phone worked perfectly. I hope this helps! - Alyssa

MDN #, MIN#, and CID#, leave the NID# blank.....then u should be ready to go.

Not receiving some of my text messages


I also have a Treo 650 that works flawlessly. I'm on AT&T and sometimes a message gets delayed but I don't think I've ever missed a message. I would believe it is the verizon network. It could also be effected by sunspots and the part of the world you are in.

good luck

A warranty is only as good as the company behind the warranty. If your seller is a reputable one, the warranty can come in handy in the next year. SquareTrade, for instance, is a good eBay warranty vendor.

Palm Treo Rebooting After send an Text/SMS


Hello, hope it helps (from http://www.chaddickerson.com/blog/2006/05/19/what-to-do-when-sending-an-sms-makes-your-treo-650-reboot/)

The application that causes the reboot varies, but it’s always the same error related to the message store. Here’s how you fix it (and beware — this deletes all the text messages on your device!):
  1. If you don’t already have it, you need to download and install FileZ on your Treo. All this does is give you access to all the files on the Palm OS filesystem. This is a tool that must be used very carefully, since you can move, copy, and delete any files on the Treo, even ones you didn’t know were there. It’s one of the most useful Treo utilities you can have.
  2. Run FileZ on your phone and choose “View and Edit Files.” In the next screen, you should see “Internal” under Filename. It might also say “ROM.” If you have an SD Card, you should also see “External” or “SD Card.”
  3. Click on the little wedge beside “Internal” to expand the list of files on your Treo.
  4. Find Messages Database and delete it (you do this by checking it, choosing “Details,” and then clicking “Delete”)
