    Flashed to Cricket, but MMS & Internet are broke :-(

    I got this phone two weeks ago and waited a whole week for it to get flashed across the country. The flash included calling, SMS, MMS, and Internet; however, only calls and SMS are working. We even spent hours over the phone trying to figure out and reflash and reprogram to resolve the issue.

    But I am still getting the the Cricket-WAP logon screen, despite numerous attempts to login with the format phonenumer@mycricket.com with cricket as the password. We've also called Cricket tech support (man, I hate calling them!) to refresh the data feature settings. No luck.

    I checked other posts with the same problem on here, but no one has provided a step-by-step update on what to do next.

    I really want to experience the Q! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    you won't get MMS working on either the sprint Q or Q9c. Sprint doesn't use MMS (picture mail is different) so the software isn't there. and I believe that you would just need to set up a proxy connection on the qriginal Q to get it working

    yep ^, that maybe why they say to flash to Verizon before converting to cricket.


    I have mentioned before.. you guys should get together and make a complete ROM and/or a sprite image so you don't keep going thru this. Just load the software & go.
