    HELP - New Virgin Mobile HTC One V - MEID/ESN not accepted for Cricket activation.

    Got on a BF deal for (2) Virgin Mobile HTC One V last week

    I have activated one on Page Plus so I know how to flash/change this phone. And try to activate the second one on Cricket because of the cheaper Paygo plans.

    Anyway, I tried to activate multiple times online and it was rejected - "We are unable to activate this phone online. Please call Customer Care..."

    Twice I have gotten a CS online, both told me that this phone is not "in service" in my area (Boston MA). That is not right. I have switch zip code on the activate page and it was still no go.

    My MEID/ESN number looks normal - A1000023Exxxx. I have not flash/change anything on the phone. I just want to aquire a new phone number from Cricket first and do all the flash/change all at once.

    Any idea why? Something/someone is wrong here.

    That would be a simple anbd sirect answer. I did not get that from th4 customer service. agents. I know Radio Shack is selling this phone and Cricket plans nationwide. I guess it has to be the ANDROID MUVE MUSIC PLAN.

    Anyway, I am a noob here.

    Can somesone explain the "changing esn" services available on this forum help me to get on the Paygo plan with this phone?

    f there cricket stores it is not a paygo only area. I would go to the cricket store you drove by and have them do it. if they can't they can tell you way. maybe the esn is tie to another account.
