So yestarday i go to a local auth retailer in davenport fl. I asked if they offered metroflash i was told they did offer it and it would be 55 dollars. I start filling out paper work and i was told it would take around 30 mins to flash the phone so i waited the 30 mins then she the employee tells me the phone cant be flashed because her computer wont recognized it. she attempted few other times in between all her other customers and all failed. I waisted about 2 hours trying to get her to flash my phone. Later that day i called a corp store and told me the orlando area metroflash system is down and it would be down for about a week? is this even possible?

Ok so this is my story: I bought a Samsung Instinct from Craigslist for a hundred bucks. I then went to an auth. retailer that LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE CORPORATE (down to the uniforms and setup boards and electronic payment kiosk) and I paid them 45 to flash my phone. Less than 48 hours later I had a data cable and 8GB microsd card with music on it. So I was messin with my phone trying to unlock internet (using howard forums unregistered of course) and I removed my microsd card without unplugging the phone from the computer and it erased all the flash settings on my phone. Shocked and feeling safe I decided to go to the auth. retailer to have them reset my settings that they flashed and they told me NO because it was all reset. They stated that the only way for me to use my phone on metro was to pay them the 40 to have them flash it again. Feeling slightly angry I asked why, and they told me that the accounting was locked into houdinisoft and that the money is required in order for the program to run the service. After *****ing at them for about 10 more minutes, the manager tells me "go to corp. store they may be able to help you out or override the payment authorization for flashing the phone"
Hoping he was right I found out after wasting extra time and gas that the corporate store was rigged the same way and that I would have to pay to unlock the phone my self. Now I was really pissed.
Thankfully, I navigated the forums to the metro unlocking section and flashed it all myself with about 3 days of trial and error and eventually having metro pcs give me my MIN number.
After about 4 more days of trial and error I have fully working wap and Phone as a modem which is awesome when showing off to the world that my acer netbook can use my metro phones internet wap to access the net literally anywhere!
The sad thing about all this was that the "corp" store had said that this probably happened because the quality of the auth. retailers flashing software was most likely inferior (EVEN THOUGH IT WAS ALSO USING HOUDINISOFT) Lesson I learned is that they want you to buy the finesse for an extra 279 dollars so they can make an even larger profit gain.
basic knowledge to most ppl should be "anyone else BAD, you GOOD" i let and store do their houdini and whatever and i take it straight home and completely restore phone to out the box state and then do my thing. houdini and the dealer have to know how to work together for the process to be complete and that aint happening so i say get the backup nv, etc. from phone through qpst or whatever you use and take it to them to mess up take it home and restart at its refurb state.
FWIW, Metro is restricting some dealers Houdini logins who aren't keeping up with their Houdini paperwork. This is straight from our AM.
i would've loaded the prl back on for you if you were in detroit

This thread cracks me up. I once *****ed about the $3 payment fee, the ONE time I went into the Metro corporate store!! I feel for anyone who works at that place.
I hate going there, and the employees I have interacted with are beyond mentally challenged. It is nice to see a few competent folks actually work for the company and read your stories.
I have a funny dumb customer story for you. I went in and bought a brand new, $200 3205i and switched it to my account, losing the free month and all. I went into the restroom at the store three minutes after having it activated and it fell out of my pocket into the toilet. I considered just flushing it, but dug in and pulled er out.
I dried it up all nice in the bathroom and to my surprise it powered on with some GPS errors and weird bootup stuff, but worked. I went back out and told the girl behind the counter it was broken and they should give me another..lol. Might have worked if the water indicator wasn't changed. I argued a bit that they sold it to me that way, but just left because it kinda worked. I lost in the Everglades it a week later anyway.
I once had an all out fight with metro 611 in Atlanta back when they first started offering service there and my South Florida phone would not make calls except to customer service. I just kept calling them for three days straight since I couldn't reach anyone else and they actually use to answer the phone with a live person!!!
I remember when this 'MetroPOS service' worked in about only a ten mile radius in South Florida..lol, those were the days.
lol. was the nice lady a black middle age lady.... jk . that was a funny *** storyOriginally Posted by thesheikh
