    About Activations

    I was wondering how do phones get activated, is it through the wap connection, or the phone wave connection or w/e it is called?I was just curious as to how phones get activated and what connection on the phone is used to get activated when the process is going on.

    if you are referring to "OTA programming" or *228. that uses the cellular radio connection.

    TY for your reply,

    OK now i have another question, if the cellular radio connection system info is correctly imputed for activation from one of these guides on forums to transfer a phone to cricket service, and that phone had no text configuration and proxy settings on the phone imputed correct atm in time interfere with the OTA programming process, could that result in a fail attempt to activating a phone?

    Nothing special is required to make a Verizon phone work on cricket. Basically all that is needed is a PRL file and the phones unique ESN. The PRL tells the phone what cell antennas to connect to and having the ESN on your account verifies that it should be activated.
