    Repair Shop flashing help .. getting phones ready for resale.

    I own a small cell repair / retail shop in south MS. I am not experienced working with Cricket..

    I have several HTC EVO, and various other Sprint phones that I would like to flash over to Cricket. Is there a way that I can flash the phones that I have in stock over to Cricket so that when I sell them to my customer all they have to
    do is call in and set up their account?? In essence they would be setting on my shelf ready to be activated with Cricket at a later time.

    I have got all they way through the flashing process with CDMA Workshop, and QPST... but with out a Phone Number and MID the process is really pointless.

    Any advise would be appreciated.

    No, they would have to be programmed specifically to the customers phone number and programming number.

    Yeah, you would really only be able to flash phones for existing Cricket customers, but you'd also need access to their MIN. It could be a huge headache for you. If the phones have clean ESN's, you might be better off selling them as-is.

    2.let the customer find the phone he/she likes
    3.Flash the phone right there on the spot
    4.you can Sometimes find the MIN In The Original Cricket Phone
    5.or you can have your customer call cricket and ask for the their MIN
    6.Become a supporting member here in the forum
    7.click on "ESN Change"
    8.send out a esn change request

    that's it you are done
    activation should go through in 15 to 20 min

    by "ESN Change" you are referring to having the ESN changed on the Customers Account OR actually changing the ESN in the phone itself??

    yeah you have to put the esn on the customers account.

    the forum will do esn changes if you become a supporting member

    You can have you're customer take it to cricket them self
