    Is it possible to go from Metro PCS to another network like boost or virgin? I'm just asking in case this really happens.

    yes it can be done but its complicated requiring a donor phone and its likely to be illegal

    Our phones will still work until around 2015. My advice: sell it and get a LG Motion 4G. Or you can get it flashed to cricket legally. You have to find an authorized retailer.

    I thought esn cloning was only illegal if you were stealing another persons service or monitoring their calls.

    It's illegal if the TOS says it's illegal. Cricket allows cloning. MetroPCS does not. On cricket, to clone a phone, both phones must have same MIN, MDN, and PRL. On metro, both phones need same as before, but also MEID.

    I think your thinking of flashing. To my knowledge (I could be wrong) cloning is VERY illegal

    Cricket will clone for you if you don't know how (and they know how).

    Are there any cricket stores in Miami that can clone the Optimus M to cricket?
