Hi, I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. Today I'm going to show you how to use any CDMA device to flash it over to Metro PCS. CDMA stands for Code Divided Multiple Access. This is different from carriers like AT & T and T Mobile. CDMA is used on Sprint, Verizon, Boost Mobile, Metro PCS. And a company called Alltel which is not available in my area. Any of those companies, you can use certain types of devices. And move them over to Metro PCS. Through a software called Houdini Soft. This software is only available in certain Metro PCS dealers and metro PCs stores. You cannot just walk on to the street and find somebody to do this for you. You have to go to a Metro store and have them do it. The only disadvantage to flashing your phone over to Metro, is that you will not be able to use picture mail or Internet. You will only be able to use text messaging and make phone calls. You will not be able to use any Internet features. So there are only certain devices that are compatible. To find out which device are compatible. You want to go to that's And ask for or click on the devices supported list. From there, you will be able to view the devices that are currently available to be flashed over. Right now, Blackberries and certain PDA devices that run the Windows operating system. Are not supported. As well as Palm Treo devices. Those are not supported. It needs to be a regular basic type of phone that you can move over. There's really no benefit to flashing a PDA device. Because if you flash a PDa device to Metro. You will not be able to use the Internet or Picture Mail capabilities. Which makes that device pretty much useless. Keep in mind that once you flash the device from Verizon or Sprint or one of those companies, to Metro. You will not be able to reverse that procedure. Once it's done, it's done and it cannot be fixed. So I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. And you can log on to our website,
