How to fix a cricket phone if i forgot the puk password? and it wont let me go in the phone


Hi
Normally the puk code for your phone can be found either in the paperwork that accompanied the phone when you first got it, or from your mobile service provider.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Samsung admire is stuck in boot loop


I used The Simple Upgrade Tool program directly from Cricket/Metro PCS if it is a Muave phone and it is bootlooping press the mauve button (camera Button on Metro) it will bring up small info in upper left of screen and it will say downloading..then download The simple upgrade Tool from the web Simple upgrade tool FF18 I got the program by calling cricket asking for an upgrade. Start the program on your computer/laptop and plug in the SCHR720 USB follow the prompts on the screen after hours and hours of battling bootloop it was running in 2 minutes NOTE: be careful which prompt to use you have 3 choices erase all or modify and add/replace. I picked modified it loaded and started to work perfectly with a normal restart. But mine changed companies from Cricket to Metro PCS so you will want to try the other options from the prompt choices. The phone kept everything else, Media,pics everything else was as it was originally.

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

Try *22804 it seems to work for verizon phones that are failing on *288 more often than not.

However if your phone was fully flashed you may need to have it reprogrammed since these phones need to be programmed to your number, without this most likely you will only get talk and text.

actually, it is not possible to download ringtones to a Rant from Myxer. You have to use a phone uploader with ringtones from your computer and send yourself a "jump code". Unfortunately, Cricket does not offer this option.

Invalid esn#


CDMA cell phones generally cannot be used on any other network than the one that the ESN is programmed to. For example, Cricket ESNs can only be used on cricket, Verizon ESNs, can only be used on verizon... It doesn't matter if you change the firmware or not, many other service providers will not accept another service provider's ESN.

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
