    help with cricket programming

    Hey guys

    I have a droid 2 that works on 3g via autostart.sh and u2nl. Problem is that it only gets 3g from a home tower in san diego and i just moved to long beach. In lb i only get 1x data. When in san diego if i try to run *228# to program, it says "cannot program your phone, please refer to the read me first card. If you signed up for nationwide roaming you need to visit a cricket store to have your phone programmed."

    I am in san diego for this weekend. Should i take the phone to cricket? Or can someone tell me how to program this myself? Ive looked in the mobile network settings and everything looks correct.

    I have the 45 plan.

    Please help this weekend while im in sd so im on a home tower.

    There are several issues happening here. First, you are on the $45.00 a month plan. You don't get 3G Data Roaming on that plan. You need to be on the one of the smartphone plans. The other problem is the PRL. Sounds like you need to update or replace your PRL.

    I would start by replacing your PRL with 42900 or similar, if that doesn't work, I would suggest upgrading your plan to an actual smartphone plan and then reflashing the phone without using workarounds.....

    The Droid 2 is a pretty easy flash when you don't use workarounds like autostart.sh....
