    If I were to buy an Ally that has been flashed from Verizon to Cricket, is it easy to flash it back to Verizon firmware?

    Actually the settings are stored in the radio. but that stock rom includes the verizon radio and settings so that should do it. And though the steps are long, they're well detailed and not short and super vague like other how-to guides I've seen

    I also find it a bit odd that you found an ally with a successful flash to cricket.The settings usually revert back to default since its stored in AMSS (radio). But that shouldnt be an issue soon. As we are currently working on a Patch.

    Yeah, I also found a Droid X that is flashed to Cricket. Some girl traded her Droid 2 for a Droid X on craigslist, but the person she traded didn't tell her that the phone had been flashed to Cricket. So I might just trade her phones straight across because she doesn't know anything about it.

    I'm not sure how the service is either. A lot of people around here go with them, but I think it's more because it's cheap.

    Yeah no doubt.
    I live in the country in Texas and the only thing that gets out where I live is Verizon.
