    in the running for a Galaxy SIII or and S II

    Waz good all..

    in a couple days (monday evening ) i will get paid .. after work on tuesday or wedsday at best i will begin shopping for a non flashed S2 or an S3... without the contract ( just the Phone)

    what id like to know is this

    id like all the readers of this thread to gather up any info they have in either phone From freinds who flashed over or you guys yourself, whether its worth it to flash the S2 or the S3 to cricket.. i been wantin one of the two for a while.

    id like to know what flashing disables and lets stay.
    id like to know what you lost if you have either of these two phones. tell me what happened to freinds who had the phone
    ( i do know for sure all that awesome stuff i read about for the S3 you dont get to keep)

    Chris i would like your input/wisdom as well.

    what am i losing or winning with this upcoming decision

    No matter what you flash the function of the phone remains for all phones, unless you think that your entitled to sprint or verizon services like Sprint TV and Access Manager

    not so.. ive heard that people loose character strokes for SMS( example: some phones give you 140 characters and if the phone is flashed incorrectly it goes down to 80 or 90) ive heard that on some phones people loose 3/4G strength, ive heard that some phones loose Picture messaging etc....

    i want an intelligent answer
    i wish people wold READ WHAT IM ASKNG AND RESPOND ACCORDINGLY

    Here's a stupid answer. You can do the research yourself, google is your best friend and be an educated consumer!!

    I think handcent sms or go sms will prevent you from losing characters per sms.

    I think if you have that much to say you should make a call.

    Texting is so much quicker though. Hehe

    Especially with swiftkey....!


    I'm sure you probably prefer receiving a text rather than a voicemail also
