A Fond Farewell to My Beloved MercGeneral

    Hi everyone. It's been awhile since I last posted here but aside from being impossible to root without a computer, I never really had a problem with the Merc.
    The constant whoring to get the stupid Muave update was annoying but I just ignored it.
    No, what killed Merc for me was Cricket screwing with my plan. They eliminated the plan I have been using forever and arbitrarily jacked the price way beyond what I wanted to pay.
    So sod off Cricket and hello Virgin Mobile for half the monthly cost.
    I'm rocking an HTC EVO V 4G now with the. 3D camera and I'm loving it.

    I wish you all well. You guys helped me learn a lot about rooting.

    Still learning the new phones capabilities but over in the Evo V forums they have nice organized rooting walkthroughs. I may give it a shot.

    Congrats on the new phone! I've never heard of Cricket forcing people to change plans, even when they change them you have to change plans yourself. Plus the new plans are actually cheaper for the same amount of data, or a little more if you want more data. Were you still on an old $45 plan or something?

    they did the same thing with my plan when I got it I had the android plan then suddenly they make you use the muve music plan even if you didnt do the patch.

    I changed mine to the $55, 2.5 GB plan they had right before they changed again to the all Muve plans and they haven't said anything to me yet. I would have still been on the 1 GB $55 plan if I wouldn't have read about it on here and CU and changed it myself. Did you change phones or how did they tell you that you had to change? I hope they don't make me change mine, i'm saving $5 a month right now by not having Muve. On the other hand, the $60 plan has free tethering, so it might be worth it.

    I was on the $45 a month unlimited everything plan (+$5 insurance and taxes and fees made it $63) I had that plan since my Huawei Ascend. Anyway, I missed a payment, got shut off and then let it sit for two months while I paid off other obligations.
    When I went to pay and turn on again they said my account was deactivated. They could get my old number but not get my old plan. I had to take the $55 plan (which came out to almost $70 a month)
    Anyway, I got the prepaid EVO and its plan is $35 a month unlimited text and internet. 350 talk minutes. And who talks that much anymore? Lol Plus the 3D camera is BOSS!
