-EvDo- Arizona users get EvDo

If your in the Phoenix, Scottsdale or surrounding area’s you might be in luck. Customers in those locations are able to send/receive data and other web content using Cricket’s EvDo Network. The PRL you will need is 1025 or 1125 for Arizona Market’s. Avrage speed was found to be 760.00 KBPS Ballpark. Which in tests was fast enough to download video’s on Windows Mobile based Cricket phones from YouTube (With In-Sync Audio)

Some customers are experiencing a problem where there handsets *see* the EvDo Network but once the handset attempts to start a transfer is sent back down to the slower, 1xRTT Network. No solution has been found at the time of writing. EvDo Datacards are also being tested in Nashville. It has been confirmed that the price of a Cricket “Wireless Broadband” data card will be set at 179.00 with the price of service being 35.00 per month for up to 10GB of Transfer per month.

Its only 1xRTT compatible.-Its very much like the W370 that Tracfone has (370 is GSM) Main differences are the inclusion of Bluetooth, Camera, Exterior Mono Display and higher resolution interior with a larger memory along with Un-Confirmed expandable memory-Includes C2 Bluetooth-Voice dialing is included-Camera is VGA (640×480 Res.)-Phone price is estimated at under 150.00 which could make it a smash hit in the mid-range phone area.

Boycott HowardForums, Join the Mafia

[Sent via GlobalBlog, debug info @ http://marklog.info/datalogs/cdn/gblog/bchofo.txt%5D

I’m offically boycotting Howard-Forums due to poor management of there Cricket forum. This includes:

  • Poor management of Moderation Team.
  • Poor response to there community
  • Buggy software

And i’m asking you to Leave HoFo in the dust and Join the mafia, Cricket Mafia. Its what Howard-Forums and Cricket Phone Talk should and could have been. Its a forum thats not cluttered. Instead its purely about Cricket. Nothing but cricket. Including rumors, support and tips for flashing (Along with support.) So. Leave HoFo and CPT in the dust and join CM

[This posting was not paid. Made entirely by a supporter. Don’t ask me to make paid posts. I’ll tell you to f*** off.]

For my write up on it.

Rumor: Caller tunes for Cricket.

[[NOTICE: Take this rumor very unseriously. The source from Howard Forums is un-stable and could just be an attmept to get noticed.]]

Another Cricket rumor has poped up. This time its caller tunes. From what i remember. Caller tunes are what you someone hears when they call you, Instead of the normal call tone. The source states that there could be a 10.00 activation fee for the service and has yet to state an estimated price for the service. More as it comes! Along with some news next week on a new phone i got for cricket (Its not one you can buy in the store ;)) and news with the launch of Cricket in North Carolina.
