Default blackberry flash cdma

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all I am new here and I have a general maybe not question. OK so I have a sprint 8330 that I paid 90 bucks to flash to metro week it got sopcs and it worked great. Now last aked and wiped its self clean. It turned back on then I had to pay 60 to reprogram again. Now today My friend tried to unlock it and it tried to many times it started wiping he took out the battery and i had to up date cause i got a jvm 513 error so now its on and workin but it went back to sprint and i cant make calls or text and my metro web is gone. OK with all that said I was wondering where do you get the software and the information you need to do the flash again and seeing as it looks like a profitable business if you know what your doing I kinda wanted to get into it.
thank you all in advance ALEX

I agree with NJ.
Sounds like you might have been messing with the phone too much.
And, we have come across this here (I am in Law Enforcement) that carriers such as Cricket and Metro PCS will flash your phone to work for them.
We had a Blackberry Curve that had been flashed to work on Cricket. Cricket had the phone in their system as a Razr.

Flashing replaces portions or all of the OS in a phone. Either with the original OS, as in reflashing a bricked phone, or by forcing an OS, or parts of an OS onto a phone not designed for them.

Actually, in our case, Cricket flashed the phone side of the device, the BB OS was still there.
