    EVO 4g



    Hello from Houston, Texas - EVO 4G user here...

    Hello all!!

    I just bought a new SPRINT EVO 4g. I have a current sprint account (contract expired long ago) that I will be closing as soon as I can port my number over to Cricket. I stopped in at the Cricket store today and asked how to best go about making the switch. The associate was not very helpful. He said they have to flash my phone so they can assign it an ESN. I asked if I could get an account without a phone and he said no. He also said that my EVO would not work outside of Houston because Cricket uses TriBand. He also said I had to get the $55 plan for any android device.

    I watched the tutorial on flashing the EVO over and It does not seem too difficult. The part I don't understand is how do I do this without a Cricket Account? Are there any Houston users that could help me out or point me to a descent shop where I can get the $45 plan and possibly get the phone flashed while I wait?

    Thanks in advance!
    -Greg

    A little searching and it seems I have to buy a cheap Cricket phone to get started with an account on the $45 plan. Is this my only option? Any local help here in Houston?

    Thanks,
    -Greg

    Welcome to the forum!

    I'm not the "flashed phones" expert here, so hopefully somebody can reply with some additional information to help you out.

    I would the prl portion of the instructions and place a cricket prl on the phone so that it communicates with cricket instead of sprint and all a cricket rep needs to do is scan the phone and place it on the account as a flashed device.

    Also tell them you want the $45 plan

    After you create an account then do the full flash and you should be golden. Hope that helps
