Find the Home SID for cricKet and program the Home SID to the phone. That may be a possible fix. Once a phone has been flashed, everything is re-set, and may not work properly to other carriers.

Home system identification. Picks up the correct frequency for the carrier. Like a radio.

You also have to keep in mind the platforms may not be compatible for WAP.

When you're flashing phones over. You can't text, use the internet, just make and recieve calls. That's the bad side about flashing. You might be able to text. I'm not sure. But I've been told that you can't. And Helio plans are cheap. $65 for 500 minutes. and you get unlimited everything?! That's awesome. Also texting to korea is free. OMG probably not for you. But a Korean person like me. That's just an awesome deal.

My minutes, downloads, apps, text, pix and vid share are free. I work for Sprint. Yes flashing CDMA phones will cripple the phone. Re-flashing phones work best for local wirless carriers.
If you have a J2ME platform for the network, and flash a BREW platformed phone, WAP will not work.
If you think the $55 with the 500 minutes and unlimited text, why don't you look at Sprint SERO site. It's $30 for 500 anytime minutes, unlimited nights and weekends, nights start at 7pm, unlimited text, unlimited WAP (Power Vision/Vision), unlimited mobile to mobile (Sprint and Nextel), unlimited picture/video mail, plus you get Sprint TV, Sprint Music, free push e-mail, and if you exceed the ammount of minutes given to you, it automatically charges you $5 ...

In Korean, or did you mean TO Korea?! Did you install software in the Helio phone that allows you to text Korean characters?

*talk in the correct forums, on the correct subject Wink
