It seems that it was a Verizon phone, but is fully flashed to Cricket. You just need to switch the sim card & go ..

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:
phonenumber@mms.mycricket.com

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.

Cant receive text messages


hi there,
call the customer service of your service provider ( AT&T,Vodafone,Verizon etc)....they will set up message center number on your phone , the one that you have might be incorrect...your mobile operator will send you sim updates that will refresh the settings ....and then you will get the text message options
cheers

Flashing a helio ocean


It can NOT be fully flashed. I used to work for cricket. You will not get anything but calls and text. that is it. If you receive or try to send a pic message it will scrable your flash and your phone will start to power off automatically when you try to use it! You have an option to disable pic messaging, but as I discovered today, if you send an MMS from a cell phone instead of an SMS it will do the same thing, scramble your flash and your phone will power off after being on for a few seconds. Shop around for a Motorola Z6M. Great features for a cricket phone. OR the LG EnVY is a great phone to flast to cricket. It has the keyboard and I have NEVER had and issue with a FULL flash on that one. Happy hunting, try craigslist.org
