    iphone 4 flash to cricket HELP

    hello there... i have been trying to flash my iphone 4 to cricket.. but when i talkto cricket in my area and give them my meid or esn..they cant activate it..im not even sure if it is flashed correctly, my iphone is on ios 5.1.1, jailbroken, i have the cricket bundle package installed from cydia.. i have tried dialing all the *228,*22804, EXT numbers.. i can never reach cricket....i don't know if its the prl files or what.. i have tried replacing them with other prls. but i just get the same stuff.. all Verizon..if anyone can help me here.. or team view with me to help me solve this issue... any help would be greatly appreciated... BTW, the carrier on my iphone says Cricket 11.3, and if i goto Settings>General>Network>Cellular Data Network, and i put in my current cricket phone number as the username, and put in my password.. i will receive texts sent to my current cricket phone.. on my iphone..which is very odd, considering they cant activate the esn from my iphone....

    thank you, Gary

    Cricket is no longer accepting flashed iPhones onto their services. Maybe just maybe you can by doing a ESN SWAP but no guarantee. Try a different Cricket AUTHORIZED DEALER and not a corporate store.

    Oriax is right visit an authorized dealer in you area. You'll have more luck there than at a corporate store or the customer service number.

    All the dealers in this area have been instructed to not activate any flashed iPhone devices, Cricket is threatening to shut down the stores that aren't following the rule. Good luck getting that thing activated :/

    Not really, just to full flash them. There is another way but its not for public use.
