Flash a Phone
What does it mean to "flash" a mobile phone? tia . . .
With CDMA phones, say sprint, verizon (pretty much anything without a sim) you can flash over to other cdma carriers...kind of like unlocking essentially....
God forbid theres people around here with storms on metroPCS which is prepaid that only has like a 50 mile radius...
That's what I have always wondered.
BlackBerry8120/18.104.22.168 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100
its essentially putting carrier x's software on carrier y's phone and/or provisioning it.....
It's actually a pretty big side-business for a lot of people. There are numerous posts out there with people offering to flash just about any phone over to another carrier.
That's what had me wondering - - lots of shops in my hometown here have put up signs like "Phones Flashed!!! $30.00". Thanks Steve for the response . . .
