    I need to figure out what has to be done in order to flash a phone. I need to have a certain phone flashed and programmed so that I can get it on a different provider... Anything is helpfull please let me know what I can do.. Thanks


    Phone Kyocera 2345 from either Sprint or Verizon
    Needs to be switched to "Cricket Communications"


    I don't have the phone yet but just bought DT (Drive testing) equipment for this perticular phone. The problem is this phone I can only find on Ebay already programmed for either Sprint or Verizon. I need to perform the testing for Cricket (Cricket isn't in every state yet. It's definitly a company on the rise) Thanks for your help!!!!

    Contact Kyocera and Cricket Communications. They'll help you out.

    No they will not

    Do you think I would be asking these questions if I hadn't already tried everything? Cricket does not have any say what so ever about removing a programming code or lock from another providers phone. Sprint won't unlock the phone. Verizon won't unlock a phone. So what I have to do is flash it and have someone from cricket program it. All I need to know is how to flash the phone. But nobody seems to know how that is done. Thanks for you help though

    Why doesn't Cricket have their own version of the phone? Can't you buy the phone unlocked from Kyocera? You said you're using this phone for network TESTING, right? Give me a website for Cricket Communications.

    All of our testing equipment is for the Kyocera 2345. About $30,000 worth. Like I had said before Kyocera will not sell their phone to anyone but a service provider in BULK. There web page is http://www.cricketcommunications.com/index.htm

    If you live in Mmephis, Tn. you can contact a place called Cellular Renewal and tell them that Cricket won't program your phone because it's not an original cricket phone and they'll program it. And tell them that its a slider, but first I think but I'm not sure, You have to get the phone unlocked. There might be a cellular renewal in your city, just look in the phone book. The memphis number is (901) 722-5552 :smart:
