    Would it be too much to ask if someone could send me detailed instructions in "blond" terms with links to download programs etc. to fully flash the motorla droid X to cricket wireless. it would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you in advance.

    I used that same site when I flashed my X to cricket on the $45 plan. It works well except I haven't been able to get mms working.

    I wanted to go with the $55 android plan since it's easier to configure and more reliable (since it's going direct to the web isntead of having to route everything thru the proxy) but cricket wouldn't allow me to put my phone on that plan.

    it works...i can text and use internet myself....i just had problems with making the drivers stick to my rig....but it does work.....make sure you change your apns and it should all work out if you do it right. I had to flash my phone twice to get it though.

    1. can you assist me in figureing a way to do the "surgery" on my droid x with a tad bit more "video" help or even more dramatic instructions on what i do and exactly what programs i need. i have most of the main things like prl(need a cricket evdo prl) and other things but i in reality dont want to brick it if i have to do a custom rom i have no way to do it because it would reset the phone and here comes the best part. i cant do the flash lol so if you can i would greatly appritiate some help. thank-you

    i have the original droid flashed to cricket and everything works great ,just like as if i was with Verizon,EXCEPT one thing. If you are into the downloading songs ,watching videos,or playing games,then you are going to
    be in trouble quick.what i mean is this, All phone carriers offer the unlimitted web service and the fine print is that your data usage is not unlimited,with Verizon and most other carriers you have 5gigs a pay cycle,with cricket you only get 1gig,1gig is nothing and it will go fast and you wont be a ble to watch any videos your 3g will turn to 1g, like dial up,slow slow. thats why cricket is so cheap,your data usage per cycle is so low that you will run out.if i could i would drop cricket just for that reason ,the extra money is worth it to me:mad:

    Ascend posted the link for you to do it yourself or else you have to find someone to do it for you. I flash however, many people can get it done on their own.

    We've heard a lot of positive feedback about flashing them in Chicago...

    I posted movies to the page today...

    how much would it cost to get it flashed???

    Most people charge like 60-70 bucks plus or including a $15 ESN change to put it on your account. If you are capable, do it yourself. If not, get someone else to do it.

    So I used to have an LG Vortex, which I flashed to Cricket, without any data plan. I just used it for texting and calling (To get online, I used Wifi) and am/was paying 25$ a month. Recently I broke it, but I want a bigger touchscreen phone, and was considering the Droid X or a 3G phone in general; but not too long ago, I tried this with a 4G Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere (I bought one from craigslist for 70$.. Which was complete BS.) I walked into the Cricket store to flash it, so I could continue my current plan (Just text and call) but they said that I couldn't, if I didn't put it on a data plan (Which out of the plans, 45$ is the lowest.) I guess what I'm saying is, can I do what I did with my Vortex, with an X? If not, does anyone know of good phones, (just touch screen phones) Non-4G/Smartphones that are compatible to this setting? I don't need network/data/etc. I just want a touchscreen phone that I can freely text and call with. I currently have a flip phone to replace usage of my Vortex, in which I can use this setting. But it's becoming obsolete and a tad embarrassing. I really need answers, I've been googling this all day, and yet I can't get a straight forward answer, even when I type specifically (TEXT and CALL only) it still brings up data plans. Bottom line, I need a listing of phones that can be flashed to Cricket, without it being mandatory that I have an internet/data plan. PLEASE HELP!
