    One thing I haven't been able to find an answer to, is for MMS, I have seen multiple MNC's listed across different sites for Cricket MMS. I have seen the 000, 004 (as listed here), and 016. Anyone know the differences? I used the 004 on my Droid2 and it works, but I have seen others swear the 000, and 016 work. Just a curiosity.

    mraabhimself is cooking up some stuff to help set this up automatically. I've actually been using a ROM he developed which sets up MMS for the $45 or $55 straight out of the box. It's awesome and has saved me a lot of time while flashing devices locally.
