You can use the phone on cricket but you need to flash over to cricket. I have my Droid 4 on cricket with talk, text, Internet and MMS. I also using CM 11 nightly builds using Safestrap 3.65.

So it can be updated to the latest firmware, and still be flashed to cricket?

I found some tutorials, but they were done when the phone had ics, so I was concerned that maybe that method may not work.

OK, well I've been up all night trying to use a tutorial and it's not working. There's no PC mode so I tried BP tools mode. Still not working. I'm probably just going to pay someone to do it. I'm literally giving this phone to a friend out of the kindness of my heart, but I don't want to end up paying a bunch of money.

Yeah, it's stock. It's jelly bean, says there's a small update but I read its harder to root so I'm not doing it.

Not really just do the update and reset smart actions and follow RAZR blade root. Easy peasy.

I called that flash to talk. They are only for busineses not individuals. They refered me to a local place, which told me that cricket and Verizon are sharing blacklist soon so it's not worth it.

Good news is I found out that my esn is actually NOT bad! Awesome.
