SOURCE: can a sprint samsung instinct be be flashed to metro pcs fully?

If you flashed the phone yourself then I assume you have software on a pc or laptop such as CDMA workshop or QPST configuration. If you do and you have the phones USB drivers on your computer all you have to do is put your phone in diagnostic mode and run one of these programs to access service programming. There you can change the sprint data settings to metros. For instance user name would change from old#@sprintpcs.com to new#@mymetropcs.com. It sounds difficult but if you know the settings and have the software it is quite easy.
If you paid someone to flash it for you, they did a half a$$ job as they should have done it during initial flash. You can google metropcs data and mms settings to get correct info.

How do I flash a sprint Samsung galaxy s2 for metro use


I think what you mean is that you want o unlock it. This a CDMA phone, but there is also an S2 Sprint model which have a min-SIM card (the Samsung SPH-D710). But then again I'm not sure that it can be unlock. One way would be to contact Sprint, they will ask you for an ESN (located under the battery). To flash any firmware you need the firmware and Odin, this is a tool to flash firmware to Samsung devices. But that won't unlock your device.
I recommend that if possible, visit a Metro PCS store or Kiosk, maybe they can sell you a mini-SIM card and unlock it for you. Metro PCS use CDMA technology as Sprint and Verizon, but Metro PCS is now accepting GSM phones. Best of luck.

How and where do i get music to download to my samsung gravity 3?


You will either need a USB cable( to move more than about 5 songs at a time) or you can just email the songs to your phone WITH OUGHT data charges. I usually use email to send ringtones/songs to my internet-less phone, because I don't want to buy a cord. You can buy a cord on amazon Here, though:http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Gravity-T479-Data-Cable/dp/B003XIA4O8/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1306439716&sr=8-3
The way you would do this is by sending it to your text message inbox. Actually, when you buy your phone, the provider gives you an email adress to go along with it. So to send a message to your phone:
1.Open up your email
2.Where it says "To", type one of these numbers:
Alltel [10-digit phone number]@message.alltel.com
Example: 1234567890@message.alltel.com AT&T (formerly Cingular) [10-digit phone number]@txt.att.net
[10-digit phone number]@mms.att.net (MMS)
[10-digit phone number]@cingularme.com
Example: 1234567890@txt.att.net Boost Mobile [10-digit phone number]@myboostmobile.com
Example: 1234567890@myboostmobile.com Nextel (now Sprint Nextel) [10-digit telephone number]@messaging.nextel.com
Example: 1234567890@messaging.nextel.com Sprint PCS (now Sprint Nextel) [10-digit phone number]@messaging.sprintpcs.com
[10-digit phone number]@pm.sprint.com (MMS)
Example: 1234567890@messaging.sprintpcs.com T-Mobile [10-digit phone number]@tmomail.net
Example: 1234567890@tmomail.net US Cellular [10-digit phone number]email.uscc.net (SMS)
[10-digit phone number]@mms.uscc.net (MMS)
Example: 1234567890@email.uscc.net Verizon [10-digit phone number]@vtext.com
[10-digit phone number]@vzwpix.com (MMS)
Example: 1234567890@vtext.com

3.Attach files just as you would a picture.
4.send, and you should recieve as a text message.
Hope this helps:-)

I have the lg rumor 260 from sprint and it is connected to metro but i dont have text or internet how can i get it


As long as you have Metro as carrier (instead of Sprint which is the carrier that the chip was originally designed for) you won't be able to fully use all the features in your phone. When you switch to a carrier like Metro PCS, they allow you to take the phone that you used with a previous carrier (most of the times, AT&T phones as for I know do not work), by doing what is called a "light flash". They delete certain programming from the phone but do not delete the main "BIOS" software due to legal issues. Companies like Sprint among others are not happy with this Metro PCS initiative, but Metro itself hasn't broken no rule yet.
In other words, what you are trying to do is feasable, there's people that can do it (not in regular cellphone stores) but even if you get it done, Metro won't accept the phone because then they can get in trouble for what I mentioned before. Hope my explanation helps, good luck.

How to unlock my samsung upstage phone so i can use it for verizon wireless?


you cant unlock sprint phones. Called them and they said its impossible because they have their sim cards built right in to their phones so the only thing you can do is have them transferred to another persons sprint account. its bulls***
