Default Ascend 2 Cricket rooted then activated...

Hi all, new user here, and Im hoping that some one can help me out.

I bought a number of used Ascend 2s in a lot on ebay, sold off most of them and kept one that was rooted. I just activated it last night and I seem to be having an issue with it.

I live in Wisconsin and was issued a 262 area code number, and selected the $50 plan from Cricket. How ever the About Phone menu shows a 740 number, and shows the same info in My Account on the mobile site, as well as the $60 plan. I am convinced that this is a problem caused by the phone being previously rooted.

I have tried to go back to stock using a tutorial on these very forums, but the download is incomplete and I cannot unzip it correctly. My OS is Ubuntu 10.10 if that helps.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hi, welcome to the forums. I don't have the A2, but rooting shouldn't change anything by itself, just allows you to change things. Have you tried a factory reset?

Yeah, I tried that several times actually, with no luck. I've also been looking for a stock rom that won't give me issues when unzipping it.

Try over at Unleashed Pre Paids (UPP) forum. That's where the action is for the A2.

Well still no luck... Would any one advise taking the phone into Cricket? I am also looking at using CDMA Workshop as what I am reading further may be a bad ESN problem, or using Odin3 to go back to stock.

Any advice at this point is very welcome and appreciated as I would rather not be out 50 bucks for too long...
