FLASH A SONY ERICKSON W801I TO CRICKET

I have several nice cell phones from different providers and I would like to get more information on flashing them. One is the Sony Erickson W801i -- I need to flash to Cricket. I also have a Motorola Razor and another one (can't think of the brand name right now!).
Can anyone help me with the flashing of these phones?

SOURCE: how do i convert alltel razor to cricket wireless

I also have a razor, and my phone company is cricket. When some one wants to change service to another company, sometimes the company they are switching to can "flash" the phone with the companys particular software, thus making it function with the new service. However, Im not sure if cricket has the capabilites to do this. Personally, ive been using cricket for close to five years, and I can honestly say that in means of customer service and quality, cricket is not the way to go. Im personally planning on switching to Verizon or Sprint soon and just buying a new phone altogether due to the lack of quality the phone and the service from cricket provides. Ive gone through several phones from cricket, and they were all fairly shabby. As a rule, DONT buy a Kyocera phone from cricket, they are cheap and not meant to last.

How to flash a phone to cricket


1 Download on your computer a reliable flash software which can be found online for free or for a fee. It should be compatible with your Windows version. This software will contain PRL files to overwrite a cell phone's data, PST tools to reprogram the phone, and Monster files to flash a phone. It will also contain specific six-digit codes for accessing the programming features on your cell phone which were set by your service provider. Go to the site under references for the software
.


2
Double-click and unzip the downloaded flash software.
3 Connect your Cricket cell phone through a USB cable to a USB port in your personal computer or laptop in preparation for transferring the new files.
4 Follow the step-by-step instructions which are easy to follow but vary per source. Instructions usually come as a Read Me document. The entire process would disable your Cricket settings and reprogram it into your new carrier's network or vice-versa.
5 Double-check by clicking the button "Start" and going to "My Computer." Under the window "Systems Task" on the left, click on "View Systems Information."

6 Click the tab "Hardware" and then click on the button "Device Manager."

7 Select USB controllers and ports to check for your newly-installed carrier which has already been flashed to your cell phone.

I want to flash a metropcs phone to cricket


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.

In 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.

Depending 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.

The details 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

I dont get picture text with my helio cause my provider is cricketwhat do i do


An Ocean on Cricket cant be flashed for picture text because Cricket uses MMS and there is no MMS Client in the Binary of the firmware on Helio phones because Helio phones use a different server-type to transmit their data. They use a MMSC/PictureMail based client. However a good flasher/tech can flash Internet/WAP on that Pantech Ocean.

FLASHING FROM VERIZON TO CRICKET


Flashing a device is something the provider/manufacturer has to do. Some programs online will do it but these charge a fee as well. If you do not need the internet you should be able to call Verizon and have the phone unlocked so long as you have not breached your contract with the. This will allow you to use a Cricket SIM, assuming they use SIM cards.
