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?
I dont know what the deal is but my favorite secret site (it aint a secret nomore lol) motomail.co.uk will not work with my phone (Helio Hero)....ive tried everything and there is jus no way to get ringtones on the phone besides actually puying them from Helip....is there a loop hole somewhere or does anybody know anything about gettin ringers on the phone?.... i think that media mover or the sync thing might be able to help.....im not sure tho
the sprint network. It is my opinion that Verizon has the best network, followed closely by Cingular, then a distant sprint.

Additionally, photos are stored as JPEGS instead of the strange "database"-like format that the Kickflip uses.
Overall the Hero is pretty kickass - great speakers, better audio player (it actually pumps out some solid volume through headphones), faster interface, faster browser, etc.

i like this Helio phones and services but only bad thing is its too damn expensive... i know it comes with all the data and stuff but still i think its too expensive... well i don't know maybe i'm complaining too much but i like those phones though.. real nice.. i wish Verizon can come up something like those...
They are on sprints towers currently (like, well every other MVNO in the US) there is a rumor I heard that they are trying to partner with Verizon as well (those being the two major CDMA providers) which would pretty much kick ass. lol.
helio has worked with myspace to create a special version of the myspace site just for their phones. you can check up on your friends, read your bulletins, comment, and even send photos from your phone to your blog all on the phone, in a site formatte... (continues)
