    T-mobile comet flash to CricKet?

    Is it possible for me to get my T-mobile Comet flashed over to cricket? If so how; or is it because of the sim card?

    My friend had his T-mobile flashed to cricket & he paid $65 for the flash.

    Can someone help me with this?

    Survey says no since old Tmobile phones were TDMA, new phones are GSM, and Cricket is CDMA. Look up network types...

    , former About.com Guide


    Definition: TDMA technology, which stands for Time Division Multiple Access, is a cell phone standard that has been incorporated into the more advanced
    GSM


    standard, which is now the world’s most widely used cell phone technology.

    TDMA is used in second-generation (
    2G


    ) cell phone systems such as GSM. Most major third-generation (
    3G


    ) cell phone systems are primarily based upon GSM rival
    CDMA


    . 3G allows for faster data speeds over 2G.

    While TDMA and CDMA both achieve the same goal, they do so using different methods. TDMA technology works by dividing each digital cellular channel into three time slots for the purpose of increasing the amount of data carried.

    Multiple users, therefore, can share the same frequency channel without causing interference because the signal is divided into multiple time slots.

    While each conversation is transmitted alternately over short lengths of time with TDMA technology, CDMA separates communications by code so multiple calls can also be routed into the same channel.

    The major cell phone carriers in the U.S. no longer use TDMA.
    Sprint


    ,
    Virgin Mobile


    and Verizon Wireless use CDMA while
    T-Mobile


    and
    AT&T


    use GSM.

    Definition: CDMA, or Code Division Multiple Access, is a competing cell phone service technology to
    GSM


    , which is the world’s most widely used cell phone standard.

    CDMA uses a “spread-spectrum” technique whereby electromagnetic energy is spread to allow for a signal with a wider bandwidth. This allows multiple people on multiple cell phones to be “multiplexed” over the same channel to share a bandwidth of frequencies.

    With CDMA technology, data and voice packets are separated using codes and then transmitted using a wide frequency range. Since more space is often allocated for data with CDMA, this standard became attractive for
    3G


    high-speed mobile Internet use.

    The CDMA standard was originally designed by Qualcomm in the U.S. and is primarily used in the U.S. and portions of Asia by other carriers.
    Sprint


    ,
    Virgin Mobile


    and Verizon Wireless use CDMA while
    T-Mobile


    and
    AT&T


    use GSM.

    While CDMA and GSM compete head on in terms of higher bandwidth speed (i.e. for surfing the mobile Web), GSM has more complete global coverage due to roaming and international roaming contracts.

    GSM technology tends to cover rural areas in the U.S. more completely than CDMA. Over time, CDMA won out over less advanced
    TDMA


    technology, which was incorporated into more advanced GSM.

    Nope, sorry can't be done.
    If your friend had his t-mobile flashed to Cricket it would be the first time anywhere. You should call the news.
