There are Cricket booths that do that flash and changes. From what I know, this is not something we do ourselves.
I ordered a phone on ebay - SAMSUNG REALITY SCH U820.
I called Cricket and they said the MEID should start with 268 or 270. The ex-Verizon phone I have has an MEID HEX that starts with A00.
I just spoke to the seller and he tried to guide me to find Settings or Phone Info, which are not under Tools, so I cannot find what he is looking for. He is at a loss, apologized and said to send the phone back.
I was hoping someone could help me set it up on Cricket's network. I really like the phone and want to keep it.
