    Problem with Flashed Phone

    Hey all,
    I am new to the site. I have a Samsung Facscinate flashed to Cricket. It mostly works fine with a few exceptions. Hopefully I can get the guidance here to correct the issues. First issue and most important is I do not have access to the Cricket android market. The phone goes to the verizon market which wont allow me to download apps. Currently I side load from Amazon but not all apps are available there. Second issue is sending receiving MMS messages. It is hit or miss....sometimes they go thru sometimes they dont. Third and final issue when I power off the phone and back on I lose all text messages and some, not all, of the customization of the phone.


    I did not flash the phone myself I paid for someone to do it.


    Any and all help is appreciated,
    Brad

    The issue with the Market may be remedied by installing the market update which can be acquired on this forum.

    The other issues may be a tad more tricky.

    I would ask whoever flashed it to help you out, most people who flash will fix minor issues for free if you didn't cause them yourself, at least once.

    If the phone is running 2.2 MMS wont work. I had a facinate and was flashed from a buddy whos been doing it for 15 years and said the MMS wont work. If running 2.1 it will but battery life is garbage.

    So the market issue: do you have the actual Android Market App installed on your phone? Have you tried clearing cache/force stop on the Settings>Apps menu? Can we see your APNs? maybe that has something to do with the MMS issue. that last issue is a bit tricky... are you running any kind of ROM or are you rooted?

    You may need GAPPS. Some ROMS need it...others don't...

    hmm, 15 years and cant get mms to work? mms was the same with this phone as it was for other phones i flashed, mms.apk gets replaced and you insert apn's. as for the issue i think would be remidied by going to a different rom preferably 2.3(gingerbread)
