questions about the helio hero cell phone

ok, about a week ago i bought a helio hero slider on ebay. it has been flashed for cricket service. i got it activated,it calls and texts just fine, but it wont send picture messages, or get on the internet.

is there anythuing i can do? i have pic.s and internet on my plan. do i need to get the phone flashed again? i know the guy at the cricket store said it may have problems like this. i just need to know are they permament? or can they be resolved?

any help would be appreciated.

I like the phones, but i hate..

the sprint network. It is my opinion that Verizon has the best network, followed closely by Cingular, then a distant sprint. I like Cingular's phones better, and because the difference in Network is hardly noticable, yet Cingular's phones are sooo much better than Verizon's, i would pick Cing. Over verizon anyday.. The reason why this is is the Helio forum is because im deciding where to draw the line. I like these 2 phones better than any of cingular's, but i really dont like the network of sprint. Any opinions on the matteR?

So i been keepin an eye on the helio thing and it seems kool like the hero fone (slider fan Wink ). i would like to hear some feed bak from anyone with this fone.

The features look pretty tight but i would love to see the fone in person.

For all the ppl that want krn fones look at helio for it, bc one of the largest krn carriers is bakin up helio.
