Hello,

Cricket is a wireless service provider which provides multiple access to its 3G cell phone subscribers through CDMA or code division multiple access digital technology.
Log on to www.mycricket.com. Click on the icon that says "Coverage." Identify your geographical location to assure that you are in a Cricket coverage area.
Type in "cricket phone flashing" in the Google or Firefox search engine. Also put in your city and state. Write down the phone numbers of the first several dealers to compare quotes.
Call all the authorized Cricket providers to explain what you are trying to do. They will ask for the make and model of your phone. The dealer will then let you know if he owns the software to convert your specific phone. Ask for an explanation of their phone flashing process.
Compare provider pricing and capabilities according to the information each Cricket provider gave you. The price should be no more than $45 (as of 2010), and this is essentially cheaper than buying the software yourself Disconnect your current service if it is not already disconnected.
Meet the dealer at the place of business (should be a commercial address). Have the dealer assure that he can convert your verizon phone to Cricket with no complications. If he can assure you, sign liability forms and let him proceed with flashing your phone.

Take care.

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.

Can you offer any tips on how to flash a verizon lg envy2 phone over to cricket service?


Hello acrtool667, Yes you may want to get in contact with Verizon First and ask if they can unlock that phone for you. Since both Verizon and Cricket use CDMA technology in their phones, there might be a way to make that device compatible with cricket service.

Lg EnV VX9900


You might not be able to use that becasue thats a verizon feature and they have there network info bassically permenently installed in the hardware. If you open the flip phone, hit menu, and hit " 0 " it will give you a service menue, password is all 0's
Dont mess around in there, you could mess up the phone, but if you look at the setting, somewhere in there it will show you that verizon has there info in there even though cricket flashed it, you cant change it. At least no way that i have found.
