SOURCE: 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: http://wap.cricket.motricity.com, and http://search.wap.mycricket.com.

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 http://www.accuweather.com, because if picture messaging works, accuweather.com will load in the browser as well. This is because accuweather.com 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 howardforums.com, in the Cricket subforum, located here: http://www.howardforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=336

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....

As this device is not designed to be with cricket this could be any number if issues that cannot be diagnosed and resolved online. You will want to either call Cricket Tech Support or if you can find a cricket store tke it in there and see if they can reflash it and verify correct settings.

How do I strip my lg optimus v esn from sprint so I can sell it? Is this even possible? And is it possible although the phone is still under a contract I.do not intend on honoring to sell it?


This phone can be flashed to use with another carrier ie MetroPCS or Cricket, but if its still attached to an account then it cant be used with Sprint/Nextel until that account is brought current or another phone is placed on the line freeing that Optimus for use again.

MY PHONE WAS FLASHED FROM SPRINT TO CRICKET IS THERE A REASON THAT I AM UNABLE TO ACCESS CRICKET'S APPPS


Unfortunately flashed phones do not have the ability to access cricket apps, and cricket cannot guarentee any of your other features either. Now that cricket has lowered the prices on their phones as well as released some very nice ones you are much better off getting an authentic cricket.

I work at a Premiere Dealer and we do not even attempt to sell our flashed phones that we have in stock because they create so many problems for the customers.. in fact when someone asks to purchase one we do everything we can to convince them otherwise, even though we make more money selling flashed phones.

How to flash samsung rant from sprint to cricket


For the flash you will want to take your device to a cricket indirect dealer. Direct Cricket stores will not flash your phone.

Cost varies depending on what store you take it to.

Cricket also cannot guarantee that all features will work and if something doesnt work they will tell you tough luck. They dont provide support for non cricket devices.

Moto q


I believe the Moto Q can support this so the basic flash you received only hacks the SPC, changes it to null value and writes the PRL (preferred roaming list) for Cricket and it's partner carrier's towers. Then, assuming it has not been reported lost or stolen, they will add your ESN (electronic serial number) or IMEI (international mobile equipment ID) so you can make and recieve calls. This does not enable picture messaging or internet. This is a separate procedure using computer software and there are several things which need to be changed in the firmware like your MID (mobile identification number) web addresses, protocols, and passwords for Cricket mobile service. You will need to take it to the person who flashed your Verizon and ask for the full flash so you can get the internet. I hope this helps. If you already paid for the full flash ask them to redo it and test it before you leave the store.
