    You're wasting your money with Cricket or Metro. When they flash your device or you purchase a flashed device, everything that makes a smartphone is destroyed. What is left is a glorified dumbphone.

    I recently flashed my phone from Sprint to CricKet. My question is can I go back to Sprint? I appreciate the service but my internet is MUCH better with Sprint / BIS.

    Flashing your device permanently disables your device from ever being able to access BIS/BES/BESX.

    Pardon this question, but could you expand on your answer? Not that I'm considering doing that, but I'm just curious. Thanks.

    Once your phone is flashed, you destroy the factory installed software RIM has on the device to utilize BIS/BESX/BES. Once that's wiped, it cannot be recovered. If you send the device to RIM, they will tell you that your flashed device voided the warranty on your Blackberry.

    I recently contacted Sprint and my PIN is still registered with them. Why customer service didn't tell me I was permanently disabled? Just out of curiousity?
