Flashed is a term used for erasing the current software and reestablish the original or "unlocked" version of the software.

Google search your phone's make and model with the word UNLOCK at the end. You should find your answer.

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

Can this phone be fully flashed for cricket service?


These phones can be fully flashed if they are CDMA (no sim card) however on these phones the flash is very unstaible. You are much better off purchasing a new cricket phone, as you are guarenteed all of the features.

If you really want this phone flashed then you should look for an authorized cricket dealer or a store that flashes phones. Corporate locations (Full Service) do not flash phones.

How Do I Full Flash My phone to cricket


go to a cricket store and they can fully flash it. just be aware that if you call cricket to make any changes to your phone they will tell you to dial #228 or some type of code and your flash will go away. Youll have to flash it again. I tried to add another phone to my line and this happened to me. Also if I decided to flash it again I will lose all of my info and pics UGHH!!! New grandbaby pics of course. Im trying to figure out a way to retrieve my pics also any suggestions?

Internet wont work on flashed lg rumor its flashed to cricket everything else works great. my internet worked great for a day when i first got the phone then the next day it wouldnt work pleas help me!!!


This device is not designed for use on Cricket. While you can flash devices to work services are not guaranteed to work. Cricket will only warranty their own phones and their may be unforseen issues with the internet. 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 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.

Flashing a helio ocean


It can NOT be fully flashed. I used to work for cricket. You will not get anything but calls and text. that is it. If you receive or try to send a pic message it will scrable your flash and your phone will start to power off automatically when you try to use it! You have an option to disable pic messaging, but as I discovered today, if you send an MMS from a cell phone instead of an SMS it will do the same thing, scramble your flash and your phone will power off after being on for a few seconds. Shop around for a Motorola Z6M. Great features for a cricket phone. OR the LG EnVY is a great phone to flast to cricket. It has the keyboard and I have NEVER had and issue with a FULL flash on that one. Happy hunting, try craigslist.org
