    Uhhhh what the hell did you flash?? SIM cards are used on cell phones with GSM cellular technology and Cricket cell phones use the CDMA cellular technology.

    That is a perfect question..what did you flash?
    Now lets get to the no signal issue. Go into your settings, and make sure its not in Airplane Mode. If it is in Airplane Mode turn that feature off.
    You can also dial *228, and update your roaming list to activate the phone again. This will usually solve most issues.

    I would be really curious to know what you flashed, as if it was not a specific Ascend ROM then you flashed the wrong thing, and you will need to either flash it again with an Ascend Rom (CM6 or CM7) or do a hard reset to factory default.

    I still want to know what ROM you flashed!


    Press and hold the Volume UP & Call button then Press & hold the Power button. If that dont work theres other ways, not as easy tho.

    Just leave it alone. Give it some time to do its thing. Its isnt going to be instant.

    one question at a time here, lmao, but it seems like you flash TOE or even the c8600 rom which is the Jap version and the only way to get rid of it is flashing it back to stock.;)

    If your having trouble flashing back to stock..you need to follow the instructions on the link that was provided for you.

    Yeah agree with Nuttmeg...flashing the wrong rom, can be really bad news on any phone...

    here is the drivers needed if you dont have them install on your computer, ascend usb drivers.rar

    reverting back to stock, ok power down the phone and download and extract this to your desktop MetroStockRecovery-SCRIPTS.zip after you done that press and hold vol down, end key and tap power, your phone should be on the white huawei screen and it should stay there plug your phone to the computer via usb cable, now open the folder that you extracted and run both of these file, first run fastboot-windows you will see a black box come and leave quick, next run metroPCSStock-windows.bat than another black box will pop up and it will do its thing, once it finishes the phone will automatic reboot itself.

    You know what is really weird..Is that after playing with CM7 (No Custom Ringers :(...) I reverted back to stock 2.1, then did Metro's 2.2 update...In the update they included a SIM Manager...Why i have no idea, i did not click on it, but i thought it was pretty funny that they would put that in an update for a non-GSM phone.

    The camera is pretty awesome. I wont use my regular camera any more, but then again it was really old and only 6 megapixels. T-mobile is okay, the 4g is super fast, but in alot of areas in Tucson I will get 2g witch kinda sucks....I had 3g almost everywhere with cricket....overall I am happy, just wish the forums were more exciting.

    you have to get the cricket restore file and install it. Instructions and dl kinks are in the ultimate guide and on my wiki.
