    Cricket will not accept my meid.

    I have a motorola photon, and have flashed it to cricket. I called cricket to do an esn swap (also tried activating a new line) and they told me that my meid is not approved for the market I am in. Also tried the mycricket website, no go. Will the phone activation service on this forum fix that? or is their a workaround of some sort? Here I thought all I had to do was flash the phone and everything would be good.

    You might be in a tri band area or have a Paygo account.

    What's your zip code and what type of account do you have?

    It looks like you qualify for normal Cricket accounts in your area. The easiest way would be to go with the Android plan. You might be able to get it on Paygo, but getting Internet will involve more steps. You can contact me on the live chat if you see me around. Just explain your situation so I don't tell you to go look in the forum immediately :-).

    Thank you for the info. I was told by cs reps that my meid would not work in my market regardless of plan. does this mean If i activate it through this site I can get it on an android plan?

    We can only add lines to existing Cricket accounts. Sorry.

    If you send me the MEID (PM), I'll have a dealer check if there would be anything keeping you from putting it on a normal account.

    Pretty sure there are a lot of people in your area with flashed phones.

    Im in the same boat as him. I am trying to activate my Evo and am getting the same response from them. My ESN checks out clean as well....and I know from looking on the coverage map that I'm in a great area.

    Aren't you in a part of VA that only offers Paygo though?

    Unfortunately coverage is not the only thing that governs whether or not you can use a flashed phone on a Cricket account. Your area is Paygo only. They will not allow flashed phones on the account. If you could obtain a normal Cricket prepaid account, you could use a flashed phone.

    Everyone who is curious about this, visit
    Cell Phones | Prepaid Phone Plans | Android Plans | Cricket Wireless


    and enter your zip code. If only two phones pop up, you're in a Paygo area. Sorry.

    Cricket can only operate as an MVNO in this area. That is why they only push Paygo phones. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    It has to deal with Dallas not being one of Cricket's home markets. The Paygo in that area is not likely to accept a foreign MEID. Hopefully in the future they will be able to expand. There are so many areas where people want to get flashed phones.

    If you were in an area where you could get a normal Cricket account you'd probably be good to go.

    this may be a stupid question but is it possible to copy my meid from my zte score to my evo 3d so that it can be activated in my area.

    Possible, yes... Legal, most likely not. We do not discuss techniques on how to do this here.
