Re: help programming my phone

I've figured out a solution so hopefully someone else with the same problem wont have to go thru my pain. I tried everything and tried the codes from the SphA900.

##000000# and it will give you an option to edit or view. hit enter and change the MSID number to your phone number. I did that and It enabled the flashed Samsung A740 onto the cricket system. I can make and rec calls now. when you go to settings and phone info the number should show up

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

Its flashed to cricket from cellular south and the internet isnt working

There are a few things that could be wrong with it.

1. It is not properly flashed or the "flash" has been wiped out somehow. Take it back to whoever flashed it and see if they will fix it. If your picture text also is not working this is most likely the case

2. It is not properly programmed in the ##000000 settings. Dial ##000000 and scroll down, make sure the email-like address is and enter cricket as the password.

3. It is not properly provisioned. Call 1-800-CRICKET (*611 from cricket phones) and ask them to "Provision and Refresh" your internet.

Unfortunately cricket cannot guarentee the features on flashed phones as it is not their technology.

How do I get adobe flash for my cricket smartphone sanyo kyocera

Hi Awakenthedea,

My name is Ryan and I work on behalf of Cricket Wireless. The Sanyo Zio currently does not support flash with the current 1.6 Android OS. With the new 2.2 update, coming soon, the new OS allows users the ability to view flash material and games with the additional installation of Adobe Flash Player application found on Adobe's mobile website.

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.

Verizons LG Voyager fully flashed to cricket but internet not wor

If a dealer is knowedgeable enough to claim that an LG Voyager is fully flashed, then he should know that he must activate it on its intended phone #, at the time it is flashed. Otherwise, the web will not work. This is known and common problem with the LG Voyager, and if you are able to fully flash this phone, you're aware of this problem and know how to deal with it.

Sound like this dealer did not do the flashing themselves, and were not properly trained on how to activate and refresh wap settings on a Voyager at the time of sale.

The LG Voyager must already be activated on its intended phone #, at the time the phone is flashed. This is unique to the Voyager. None of the other verizon LG phones have this requirement.

The reason is because the simple act of dialing *228, or manually programming the phone#, erases the WAP settings on this particular LG phone. Specifically, it is the WAP Gateway that is erased, and this can only be fixed by somebody who knows how to flash this phone.

This is the only verizon LG phone that will automatically erase its WAP Gateway when the phone # is programmed into it, by dialing *228.

If your Voyager is working, DO NOT DIAL *228, EVER, Keep in mind, if you call cricket for any type of billing/tech support on your account, they will tell you that you must dial *228. DO NOT DIAL *228, if you have an LG Voyager. *228 is similar to restarting your computer. It's good advice, but is usually not required.

If you are going to pay somebody to fully-flash your phone, that person should offer, even require, that they transfer service to your phone for you, at the time it is flashed. The only way to know for sure your phone was properly flashed, is to test out the web and picture messaging features, when your phone is done being flashed. I *always* test out the web browser, and incoming/outgoing picture messaging, before I consider a customer's phone to be ready.

There's is no 24hr waiting period for web/picture messaging. Basically, if it works for voice/text, there is nothing to keep web/pix from working immediately. A dealer or experiened flasher has the tools/resources to make sure the customer's account has the proper features for web/pix to work.

My last piece of advice, is that you do not have to be paying for web, in order to use the web browser on a fully-flashed cricket phone. That is right, cricket offers free web-portal access to Cricket's homepage, which doesn't include much, but does give me a page or two to load, to make sure the phone is working correctly. If you have picture messaging, you should be able to visit this page, even if you don't have web on your account:, and

There is an easy way to test if your Voyager has simply erased its wap gateway. If you can send and receive picture messages, but just cannot use the browser, then your phone is flashed properly, but needs to have its wap gateway settings refreshed. You can verify this by visiting, because if picture messaging works, will load in the browser as well. This is because is unique, it's the *only* website that will work on a cricket phone, without going through Cricket's wap gateway.

Well, hope this help and is not too much information. I will say, though, everything I've written is 100% accurate. I have been doing "full flashes" on Cricket phones for almost 3 years, before most people even knew you could do basic flashes. The best resource on the internet for learning about the capabilities of flashed Cricket phones is at, in the Cricket subforum, located here:

Denver, CO
aka beezlewaxin

PS - I cannot wait for the day when my answer is proven wrong, which can only happen when somebody figures out how to flash the Voyager so that *228 is safe, and no longer erases the wap gateway. Tougher problems have been solved, maybe someday this one will be solved too. Until that happens, DO NOT DIAL *228 IF YOUR VOYAGER IS WORKING!!! can't say that enough....
