    Text Message after debranding

    I have received several text messages from +10476000000

    n;m=1=1

    so far I have been deleting them.

    What should I do with them and why am I getting them? How can I stop them?

    T-Mobile does not provide a data plan for prepaid. That's why the Google Maps is not getting past the terms and conditions. It needs data access to function, to pull maps up, etc. That's also why Opera Mini is not working.

    You need to get at least a month to month flexpay plan to get data access.

    I don't know what email by OZ is. But if you want to put the original firmware back on, you can follow the instructions here:

    email by OZ is the original email application on the TM506. It works with prepaid. I only want to put that application back on, not the entire firmware suite.

    I am working with prepaid tethering now. I went back to a previous firmware version. Debranding didn't do me any good with the limited data allowed on prepaid.

    How to enable tethering with R3DA030 firmware?

    My TM506 has R3DA030 firmware. I don't want to debrand, just want tethering enabled. What part of Customize.xml enables tethering? Instead of editing Customize.xml, can tethering be enabled by using some command in Customize_upgrade.xml?

    I never had R3DA030 firmware. In my Equinox, I found a tag that said:

    <apn-restriction>
    <enabled>true</enabled>

    I changed that to false and tethering was enabled. Edit your customize.xml file in notepad and see if you see a similar tag.

    You should be able to change it to false. Then copy the customize.xml file back onto the phone and do a Reset settings to make the change take place.

    Let me know what you find.

    I downloaded the files from the wiki and was about to apply them when Microsoft Security Essentials reported malware in the A2uploader that's linked from the wiki. I then uploaded that file back to virustotal.com and got 12/40 programs reporting malware in that file:

    Are we sure that's a clean version of A2Uploader that's linked from the wiki?

    Yes. The virus programs have been misidentifying a2uploader for awhile. I think my Norton stopped deleting my latest copy of a2uploader off my computer without permission a couple of weeks ago.

    Thanks. I have a spare computer that I can test on, and so far the a2uploader linked doesn't seem to cause any harmful side effects. Thanks to the OP and everyone else who helped with the wiki. Worked great and enjoying my unbranded TM506 now

    EDIT, I guess unbrand doesn't mean unlock, since when I put in an O2 SIM it says 'insert correct SIM'

    To setup an exchange account go into Settings\Connectivity tab\Synchronization\New Account and select Exchange ActiveSync.
