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.
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.
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.
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
you have to dial #*#000000
This will pull up the setup screen.
You will have to get the following info from cricket...a store will tell you.
MDN #, MIN#, and CID#, leave the NID# blank.....then u should be ready to go.
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.
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.
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!):
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.
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
Click on the little wedge beside “Internal” to expand the list of files on your Treo.
Find Messages Database and delete it (you do this by checking it, choosing “Details,” and then clicking “Delete”)
