    Do you think your Huawei Ascend was worth what you paid?

    Do you think your Huawei Ascend was worth what you paid for it?

    I paid $89.99, and I do think it was worth the money. I got it back in December of last year. It's still working pretty good. I'm impressed with what Huawei's done, especially after reading about the Huawei Ascend 2. I hope they continue to bring us great phones at great prices in the future.

    I would be upset too!

    I tried buying it the day before when it was still over $100 and I'm so glad it didn't go through.

    I forgot to include above that the phone's hardware is what I like. I don't know what they were thinking when they setup Android for it. CyanogenMod7 helped so much.. It's just upsetting that my headphones won't always work with CM7 for some reason. I still don't understand why..

    Anyway, I'm glad I purchased this phone. It was my first Android device.

    I dropped my phone the other day from about five feet above the ground. After picking up the pieces and putting it back together, it works fine. You can't beat that for $89.99!

    I wonder if the Huawei Ascend 2 is just as tough.

    I can't complain considering I got the phone for FREE! I jumped on the Promotion that Cricket was offering where if you turned in another carriers phone you got the ascend for free. Jumped ship from Page Plus.

    That's great!

    Page Plus is great, but data is expensive. With Cricket, you don't need to worry about that.

    Have you looked into making any modifications to your phone such as putting CyanogenMod 7 on it, or are you happy with it the way it is?

    Its a good starter phone but you get those people that complained because they jump from a faster droid phone to a Huawei and noticed the big difference in speed but if you never had a droid its a good phone

    If you're planning on getting the Huawei Glory in November, it doesn't hurt to make modifications to your Huawei Ascend now. If something happens, you only have a month or so to get through. I have CyanogenMod 7 on my phone and it works great. If you follow the tutorials you should be fine.

    Let me know if this works. If it does, I'll make a new tutorial and sticky it.

    This is done AT YOUR OWN RISK. You WILL lose EVERYTHING you currently have, including applications and text messages. You will lose EVERYTHING. This is starting new.

    You may need to use your trackball at sometime during this tutorial. If the touchscreen doesn't work, then use the trackball.

    1) Download this file, and transfer to your MicroSD card. You can plug your phone into your computer to transfer the file. Make sure it's not in a folder or anything. http://www.cricketusers.com/attachme...root.1.3.0.apk

    Then, on your phone look for an application called File Manager. From there, select the application, z4root, and install it.

    After that, select that application from your application list and select "Permanent Root".

    2) Download this file, and transfer to your MicroSD card. You can plug your phone into your computer to transfer the file. Make sure it's not in a folder or anything.

    3) Download this file, and transfer to your MicroSD card using the instructions mentioned above.
    http://goo-inside.me/gapps/gapps-gb-20110613-signed.zip




    4) Download ROM Manager. Go to the Android Market and search for "ROM Manager". Download that application.

    5) Open ROM Manager. Choose "Flash ClockworkMod Recovery". Make sure you choose to do it for Ascend.

    6) After that, open ROM Manager and choose "Backup Current ROM".

    7) Then, after the backup is completed, go back to ROM Manager and choose "Install ROM from SD Card". If it gives you the option to do a factory reset, do that. Also choose to clear dalvik cache. Then, choose the CM7 file. After that installs, the phone will reboot.

    8) After it installs, go back to ROM Manager, and choose "Install ROM from SD Card". Choose the gapps file. After that installs, your phone should reboot.

    Then you should be good to go!
