    Moving to cricket and considering using a nexus 4g

    Hey guys im not new to the android scene by any means however I am considering buying a used Galaxy Nexus 4g and flashing it to cricket. I have a few questions however.

    I've noticed that Cricket have changed their plans around recently and I currently do not have a cricket account. So I assume I would have to buy a cheap phone and then follow the flashing procedure, correct? Can I just walk into a cricket store and buy the cheapest phone they have and get the $45 plan? or do i need an android plan now to get the full 3g data speeds? The 3g data is important to me and I wouldn't really mind paying for the android plan either the 2.5gb or the 5gb. If this is required to get the 3g speeds. Also if I do the $45/mo plan how much data is safe to use? I am a bit of a power user, and would have to estimate I would use between 2GB and 5GB of data/mo.

    Also it looks like when we flash these devices we are NOT spoofing the ESN correct? So I could resell the device i get from cricket?

    I know I'm probably asking some noob questions :-P but all the tutorials seem to talk about the $45/mo plan vs the $55/mo plan (which isn't even offered anymore?).

    Also how big a pain is it to get Cricket to change the ESN on your account for a non-cricket device? I assume we have to call this in?

    Is it possible to setup a new cricket account without a having a cricket phone first?

    Thanks in advanced,

    You can get an account with cricket before you flash your phone. Just call it in and tell them you need to start an account. Give them the ESN from the phone you are trying to flash and they will give you the MDN and MIN after you pick your plan etc. Tell them you would like to put the device as a android phone and from there pick your android plan. There's the 50, 60, and 70. Sometimes they don't put the right plan but you can request a plan change on the forum as long as there are no prorated fees involved.

    Hope this helped some. I'm not the best at explaining things!
