    How do you lose the flash if you reboot???? Sounds like someone did a shotty job. (I have no knowledge about flashing a phone to another carrier, just using common sense).

    Mobi, are you referring to a reboot (aka power cycle) or a factory reset? I agree with the poster above a reboot will not sabotage your flash to Cricket.

    a factory reboot. i dont recieve any calls and it somehow changed my gmail password so i quickly deleted that account. which by the way is more difficult than it seems but i will go ahead and try the factory reset via settings- privacy- factory data reset and hopefully not lose the flash
