    No problem. I'm sure some others will respond. There's not a lot of people on here anyway, and a lot of them are busy on the weekends. Now go get your Mercury so we can have another member lol!

    They actually have a discount if you order online, but only for new customers. If you don't care about losing your phone number, I think you could just start a new account, though. I would call the number and talk to somebody to make sure they have them in stock first, but they are supposed to have free overnight shipping. Or keep calling the stores everyday. The store near me said they are only getting a few at a time, and they are selling them as fast as they come in. Good luck!

    Just noticed the Samsung Indulge is no longer listed. I wonder if it's been discontinued?

    Hello, there, welcome to the forums! Now that you're here, don't be shy about posting! It's been too quiet in here lately. Doesn't having the Mercury make you wonder how you tolerated the Ascend for so long? Lol

    No kidding. Lol. I was just playing around with my ascend yesterday and I wanted to stick the son of bitch in the garbage disposal. It was ridiculous.

    I still mess around with my Ascend sometimes. Its pretty cool that I still get 3G on it. I keep it off or in airplane mode when I'm not using it so it doesn't use any data, plus it seems to interfere with reception when they are both on.

    Oh wow, is that what happens? I still have my Ascend on the coffee table and play the games and music and other assorted do dads I have on it.
    You mean that even though I switched accounts to my Merc the Ascend still pulls data?

    Definitely switching to Airplane Mode.

    I'm a newbie to Cricket, Huawei Mercury, and Android. Is it possible to upload a jpg from my computer to Mercury and use it as wallpaper? if so, how?:confused:

    Connect your data cable... On the phone, slide down the notification bar and click "connect usb". Now, just move the jpg to your sdcard. Unmount. Now press Menu, home settings, wallpaper. Locate your jpg, and voila! :)

    Thanks for your reply.

    Because I am so new at all of this I don't understand what you are telling me. I didn't get a cable with the phone and even if one came with it I don't see any place to plug it in. When I press the notification symbol at the bottom of the phone I don't see anything about "connect usb". I am not sure where the sdcard is and I don't know how to "unmount". Which button is the "menu" button.

    The cable is the same one you use to charge the phone, you take the charger part off and plug the USB end into your computer. Once its plugged in, slide down the notification bar (the part at the top of the screen where the clock, battery icon, and signal bars are). You should see the notification there about connect USB that CanOdope mentioned. The menu button is the one that looks like four lines, second from the left, next to the home button.

    Thanks for the information; it got me part way to a solution.

    It is now my understanding that my power cable is also my data cable and to

    I actually did this, ordered one online after there were none in stock a few months ago, and when I was talking to a representative to activate, I just argued the point that a CSR had told me I could do that. What he did was switch the new number to my old Ascend, and my current number to my Mercury. It took an hour of bullshit because he didn't know what he was doing, but it can be done.

    Good to know. Dealing with Cricket reps is about as much fun as a root canal lol.

    True that. I usually go to the store rather then call. It's always someone who sounds indian with a fake name who has no Idea what I'm talking about. I asked once where they were located and the rep said Northern New york, so I don't know.

    Have u or anyone try speaking to the online helper. Usually when you on the Cricket homepage, (usually when I'm looking at the phones) an online live helper pops up and asks if I need help. I always click no, but I wonder if they are just salesmen, or if they may actually be able to answer some technical questions.
