Thread: Full Flash Sprint HTC Evo 3D to Cricket: Talk, Text, MMS, Internet

Never accept ota. New update will not let downgrade and it hit roam more. I think I can still root and install custom roms. Also u will receive a new bootloader.

Me too. They said to go to any cricket dealer to have my phone flashed and set up a cricket account since I don't have one now. Unless there's a way that you guys know of to set up an account without buying a phone so I can use my 3d

i just took my phone in and asked to open an account told them i was gonna flash it myself and laughed at me told me it wouldnt work on the 45 dolor plan. i told them ohh well and to please add it regardless they did so. just tell them they will add it before its flashed

just make sure to ask for the M.I.N. when you are in the store they had no problem giveing it to me

8. I'd visit authorized dealers. I think a good number of them will understand what you are trying to do. If you're close to any of these in Wisconsin you might want to check them out. We just started this map a couple of days ago..

9. I followed every one of your instructions except the 3.5 sense mms instructions obviously. I'm on stock unlocked hboot 1.50 with sense 3.0. Every apn configuration is giving me trouble. I can receive mms perfectly with your apn configuration but sending does not work. I've tried changing the picture size to as low as 300k but nothing will work. Any ideas?

10. I also have followed the tutorial but have issues. I have tried looking into it but haven't found much unless i looked over it. Everything seems to take on the phone but I wanted to test the flash before I get my phone esn swapped over. The lady at the cricket store said she was going to charge me $15 for esn swap even if it didnt hold so she said to try dialing 1800cricket and it should work if the flash worked. I get the sprint error still "Your account cannot be validated, Please call customer support... yada yada" So I looked over the phone read all settings back in qpst and they were correct. So am I missing something here or will I not be able to test it before I pay$15 to swap esn and see if my service works. Thanks for any help, this is my first flashing. I have rooted several but this is different.

11. hope i can help

If the web is working,then the flash works.
You must get the esn activated if you want talk and text to work.

It took my Evo a while to start Sending Pics....Or Try Sending to Another Phone

14. Dont worry.if you got the web working you are good to go.

Once you activated the phones esn on youre account
You will get the welcome to cricket when you dial 611

You should get the esn change here in the forum i think they charge like 7 something.

Hope i helped
Let me know what happends

15. I have rigorously watched and re-watched, read and re-read. Still I get the same sprint messages when I try to dial and texts just send back an error. When I read everything back in qpst from the phone it all looks correct. I made sure to insert MID _after_ my phone number on CDMA page to make sure it was correct. I have double checked all settings, the active profile. I have tied this phone to a cricket phone number. "Your account could not be validated, please contact customer services." Is what I get when I try to dial anything including 611. Any ideas, I'm using an austin prl in New Braunfels texas but I don't think that would affect it. They are rather close. And I'm pretty sure I should still get the cricket messages and not sprints errors.

EDIT: I did neglect to mention, I have it setup on the talk\text only plan for like $30 a month. I dont see why that would affect calling and texts if I have no use for the 3G. 16.

Oh, That does matter in some cases. Go head and write a prl no a hybrid the Cdma ws. Try to *228 and*22806 on it. It better to have it on the 35 plan for the faster internet. Try 3000 prl to see if it will work. Also it only on some cases so I can be wrong.
