Question about Motorola Mobility Moto Q
I bought a Moto q flashed to cricket off e-bay and when I set up new phone it won't program. *228 doesn't work and I took it to the store and they were unable to fix. I need help PLEASE. I have been looking for 2 days to fix this prob and can't find what I need.
How to Activate your Motorola Q
Things you need in order to activate the Motorola Q on cricket:
1. Call cricket and put the phone's ESN(serial number) on the account. Thisis
called switching phones and they usually charge $15 for that.
2. Min Number: This is a 10 digit phone number(not your cell number) thatneeds
to be put in the phone. You have to call cricket and ask them for your MIN
Activating Your Phone
Unlike cricket phones , flashed phones need a special way of programming!
They cant be activated through the normal *228 process.
On your phone keypad screen:
1. Push ##073887*
2. This should open your programming menu
3. Put in 000000 for the security code
4. Press OK and Go To User Activation
4. Put in your Phone number in MDN then your MIN number
5. Choose done and exit out
If you provided us with your Phone number before we shipped the phone to you then Wap & MMS are already programmed, otherwise please follow the guide below:
Note: You will need a standard usb cable
To get internet to work, you have to first activate the phone on cricket.
Now that your phone is activated. here are the steps to get the internet
1) Download and install ActiveSync here:
2)Download the Attachment File at http://www.megaupload.com/"d=YJOT74OQ
3)Download PHM Registry at:
Cricket Wap setting:
Download the attachment and unzip then put the unzipped folder named Q in
your C: not to any folder just C: so it would be like this C:\Q
In the Q folder you will have3 file rapiconfig.exe, Command Prompt and delete-n-set.xml
Right click on the file delete-n-set.xml and open with notepad and replace
where it said firstname.lastname@example.org to your phone number @ mycricket.com
so 5055505050 will be replace with your own 10digits phone number. Click
on file->save and close the notepad
Run the command Prompt and type after the ">" cd C:\Q
So it should be like this >cd C:\Q and press enter
Then it will jump down to the next line and it look like this C:\Q>
Now type this in >rapiconfig.exe /p delete-n-set.xml there is a space between
exe and /p
It should look like this C:\Q>rapiconfig.exe /p delete-n-set.xml (now hit
Now you will see it said
"Config results written to output file RapiconfigOut.xml."
You are done with wap setting. Unplug the phone from your computer
You can turn off the phone and turn it back on. Go to internet explore on
your phone and access the tekcirC web site http://wap.cricket.motricity.com
It should work if you have web on your tekcirC account.
Load the phmregistry into your phone and installed. Click ok when it said
" may not display properly because it designed for previous version". And
After it done install on your phone. Go to Start and open PHM Registry Editor
(on you phone)
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Motorola -> MMS -> Profiles
Now in Profiles you will see VZW MMS you can change this to CKT MMS by press
Menu and choose Rename. Or you can leave it alone it would effect anything
it just a name for the profile.
I assumed that you have change the VZW MMS to CKT MMS from this point on
Choose CKT MMS. In here won"t see anything yet.
Press "Values". Now it will show you the following item
Now choose "IP Address". You notice the default address is " gw.vzwwap.com"
change this to "10.3.0.41". Make sure you hit "Done" to save the setting
and then it will bring you back to the list above.
Choose "MMSC URL" and you will have http://mms.vtext.com/servlets/mms as
default. Change the word "vtext" to "mycricket" and click done to save.
Choose "Port" and make sure it "8080" and click done to save
Do not change anything else. You could if you sure you know what you are
That it you are done click the "end" key to go to the main screen and restart
your phone so it fresh .
Have fun and enjoy the motoQ on tekcirC. Now you don"t have to wait for tekcirC
to release the Q if the rumor is true.
