cricKet data settings for Android
Its pretty straight forward, but I have recently received a bunch of mesages from people asking me how to set up a data connection for cricKet on Android, so here are the steps.
Settings>Wireless Controls>Mobile Networks>Access Point Names>
From there select the default APN probably simply titled Android
From here we plug in the settings that we would with Windows Mobile:
Name: Cricket (Doesn't Matter, More for Labeling Purposes)
APN: Cricket Mobile Web (Doesn't Matter, More for Labeling Purposes)
MCC: 310 (This is the default value)
I would assume you would make the following change for cricKet, as you would in the PST settings, but when I save, the APN deletes itself. Please test on your end. Data WILL work if you leave setting at default. I just think this could be the one setting preventing us from authenticating with google.
MNC: 00 (Default Value is 995)
Everything else I left as is. This will get data running but WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO ACTIVATE YOUR GOOGLE ACCOUNT. This has to do with the proxy (I think). If you know a way around it, or further settings to change please make me aware so I can update.
Then stop and restart the modem.
At this point you should have an active data connection. If it doesn't work RIGHT after the stop/start of the modem, give it about a minute.
I have not tested any MMS settings.
I'm sure this will work for any phone, but I have only tested on Vogue - so I place it here in the Vogue forum.

Re: cricKet data settings for Android
Will these setting work on any build? I have tried them on several builds and data refuses to work and the setting seam to delete after the 1st try at a data connection.
I have been playing around with the setting posted above by edru with this build and many others but have had no success with WAP or MMS. I cook cricket WM ROMs for the vogue so I know all the setting but just can not get them to work. As the OP states after making the changes the APN disappears. Edru if you really have data working please post the following information.
Mobile network type from setting/statue
For some reason mine says I'm on a UMTS network and I'm wondering if that is a Android thing or what.
