    If you want a new Merc, I would restore it to GB using Oriax123 method.

    Extract the compressed file twice. you will then copy the files into a folder to restore backup from cwm recovery.

    Follow the guid posted by huaweimaercuryguru on how to downgrade back to gingerbread from ICS. not sure if its actual cricket stock as mine but you can always install the cwm recovery and restore my backup afterward

    25000 users will get it replaced. Nice!
    If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?

    1.. I dont trust this at all, i know the merc did have its issues, and i agree, they should replace these fones.
    2. Its amazing how this is released after the ICS leak is.
    3. Can someone go get the fone and try to put ICS on it and confirm, everything is normal.

    I say this with no offense to anyone or the people that work for cricket, but heck, id be a pissed mutha f...er if i get this new phone and brick it constantly trying to put ics on it, or cwm on it. Or make any major changes to the software watsoever.. When one person goes and gets it and can confirm ics install, ill do the same.. otherwise, the dropped calls and stuff is fine with me, i know how to call back. :-)

    i called and drilled the lady stating there is a potential software issue but would NOT go into detail about what the issue is . I made my phone back to stock thanks to a few people here and exchanging it tomorrow . Are they new phones we are getting or refurbs? Also birdy told me they are not selling these phones any more.. its the best phone on cricket (besides hacked ) is there a reason why ?

    So has anyone running ics got this text message .To me im not sure it worth flashing back just to see if i get it or not..

    I also do not think this is a software issue if so THEY Would just push another update.Software can always be fixed with firmware update push . Its gotta be a hardware failure or maybe something to do with the fcc investigations into huawei in the past.
    let me know please ..

    thanks Erica

    i think this recall will be on phones sold before they pulled them off shelves back a few months ago.. I have a phone that was replaced after that date. Mine just STOPPED Working . i think this is the reason for this recall.. guess software could be causing it but its a hardware failure for sure..
    What is ice ..

    I actually called the number on the text message and the lady just asked me for name and phone number.. Afterwards she said she would exchange my mercury because of a potential malfunction that might occur.. I bought the phone on march this year, maybe they found out ICS doesn't run too well on older mercurys and they are trying to exchange them with the new versions of the phone.. Also I get random missed messages and dropped 3g, only when I updated to 2.3.6 and ICS..

    maybe the replacement mercs wont have the wifi / mms issue, only started happening after the first muve update and still occurs with latest firmware. (bought mine in December).

    In order to revert back to the Stock recovery image do I just put the phone in download mode (pink screen) and copy over the stock recovery? (Currently has CWM).

    I got the text on Monday, called on Tuesday, I am eligable for the replacement, there is not a corporate store in my area so they are sending me one within 72 hours. We'll see what happens. Thanks to this forum for helping me decide to call. I also have not updated, I bought my phone in January of this year. if that helps anyone.
