    I had zedge installed in mine and it worked for a little bit but evenutally FC on just about everything. If you're just using it for ringtones (not wallpapers) I would suggest installing Make a Ringtone MP3 PRO (from mick graten) from the market. It works great and I havent had any issues dowloading, creating or sending ringtones. Hope this helps!

    sync your contacts with google and back em up to your sdcard. The move the backup to your PC. Add your lil brother a google acct to your phone, then delete your acct off the phone. When you get your phone back, add your acct back to your phone, del his acct, sync with google. If syncing doesnt work, the n put the backup on your sdcard and import.

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone has used juice defender and android assistant. Are these apps really any good and has anyone been able to use either or both together successfully? I have both installed and honestly I can't tell if they are doing anything to really extend battery life or free up memory. Should I keep them or just ditch em? Thanks:)

    this works. i downloaded it and unfortunately u have to turn off all rotations except 90 degrees, reboot and then u should be good. ive been runnin cm6 for 3 days straight now with autorotation still working. used to stop after a few hours. also if ur having mass reboots, change ur OC settings to 671 max/245 min on demand. no more rebooting. laters.

    Long story short, I got a job at a local hotel and there's been a Cricket phone in the lost and found for a month or so. I took it in hopes of being able to make it work on Verizon. i haven't had a phone since february so i'm trying to make this one work..

    It seems easy but i'm having a hard time trying to figure out how to do it specifically Cricket to Verizon. I've looked on Google and all but it looks like everything is Verizon to Cricket, not the other way around.. so, if anyones done it before, where'd you do it at? if you did it yourself, what guide did you follow? any help or pointers is appreciated, i'm stumped

    This thread should have a bit of the info you're looking for, ignore the parts specifically mentioning the blackberry.

    FYI, your big problem is going to be getting Verizon to add your phone's ESN to their network, from other stuff I've read while researching this.

    I had this same problem. I took it back to MetroPCS and they went into programming and found an error. My phone was programmed over the air, that is probably why. But now that is has been programmed correctly it doesnt do it anymore.

    reboot a couple of times, if that doesnt work then factory reset your device, (hope you backed up your ROM,SD files,and contacts somewhere.)

    I have been ghosting this forum for a while and I have not been able to find anything dealing with the Huawei Ascend's trackball not working :( <-sad face

    I'm not sure if I am overlooking it or not, so any help would be greatly appreciated in helping me troubleshoot :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi and welcome! The only time I can remember a trackball problem, they used alcohol and a Q-tip to clean around the ball. Have you tried re booting just in case its just a software glitch? Sorry I can't be more helpful. If all else fails, it should still be under warranty, since the phone hasn't even been out for a year yet.

    its really annoying i have that same problem! after i upgraded to 2.2 froyo...now they just run instead of even giving you the option to save it. so yes I too would love some advice on how to save them again instead of automatically opening them...
