Help to flash phone

I really need some help!!!
I don't know anything about flashing a cell phone I bought a Motorola V265 from a ad, I asked if I would have any trouble switching my Cricket Service to this phone, of course the answer was "No Not At All" she said her boyfriend bought her a new phone for her birthday, so she had her service switched from the V265 to the new one, and she had only owned it for 5 weeks. And like a dummy I believed her,(DUH) I took it to Cricket to have my service put on it and they said they could not do it till I have the phone flashed, they also said they 'could' get it flashed for me, but, they would have to keep it and send it out to get flashed, it would take a week to 10 days, and it would cost $100.00. The guy was cool enough to say that I could it get flashed on my own alot cheaper, and that some customers said they did off the net, for nothing, but the cost of a USB cable. (Which I have) What I have is a Motorola V265 that is locked by Verizon,
I really don't ANYTHING about how to flash a cell phone,
So any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and Have A Great New Year! Kat Garcia i have a blackberry pearl that is flashed to cricket but i want to flash it to verizon. the problem is i dont know how.

I forgot my password to my v265 phone and can not unlock it. is there any way to unlock the phone once you have assigned a new security password?

Yes, you will need to call your cell phone provider! They will ask you to verify your account info and will be able to reset it over the air. you will obviously need to call from a different phone! I did that once!

Motorola V265

1 of two things: Go into your settings and look for either "Keypad" or "Display" and see if keypad lights are set to ON.

2. Your phone does have a light sensor built into the keypad, normally the keypad will not illuminate unless insufficient lighting conditions are present. If it's pitch black out and the keypad still isn't illuminating and your settings have the keypad lights ON .... You should bring your phone to the nearest Verizon wireless corporate store to see about either replacement or upgrading.

"Busy Try again"

Try powering your phone off ... Taking out the battery ... wait about 5 seconds then put the battery back in and powering the phone on and trying the cam again.

If it works now, it was a software lockup/glitch ... If it still doesn't work then your phone needs replacement.
