No doubt that once SERO is removed from your account, it's gone forever.
As for MMS, I had that issue on my GS3, too using the stock ROM that was rooted... I can't remember which method was used to root. But anyway, to resolve it, I installed Blazer ROM. You're gonna want to use a custom ROM anyway after your repair is done. The stock ROM has too much bloatware. I tried using the Go SMS Pro as a work around, but it felt bloaty to me and I actually preferred using the stock messaging app.

I went ahead and tried it, and it asked me to login to my sprint.com account. It said that since I'm on a SERO plan, I don't qualify for this sale and it forwarded me over to the everythingplus employee referral site.

I have had 1 Galaxy S2 up for 3 weeks and the other for 2 weeks now. My online account still says TP2 which is the donor phone. I have also had 1 bill close about 1 week back and it still shows the same plan as before online. Will update the forum if anything changes with my plan.
I tried the "incognito window" on google chrome, but Sprint still prevents me from using that link to upgrade. I also tried checking the cart to make sure it wasn't in there somehow.
Anything I may be missing to make this work, and grab a Galaxy S2 for $0.99? I appreciate the help!
I got my wife's GS3 MMS issue resolved. Indeed, it was an APN issue. I used the "APN Backup & Restore" to delete all the APN's in the phone. Then I restored the APN I linked above. Voila...MMS send/receive works now. Good thing she didn't even know about it.
BTW, for this to work, you must convert the "APN Backup & Restore" into a system app by either using Titanium Backup, or simply use Root Explorer/ES File Explorer (root enable it) to move the APK from /data/app to /system/app.
@rocco24: What was the default value that was in there? The one in the instructions is what was already there by default...I didn't need to add it. You may be ok w/ the default. If the default doesn't work, try: yourMEID@hcm.sprintpcs.com. No password.
@trimm99: Once you install the APN app, the APK file will be in your phone's /data/app. The filename is "com.riteshsahu.APNBackupRestore-1.apk". You need to move this file to /system/app using either Titanium Backup, Root Explorer, or ES File Explorer. If using ES File Explorer, you must enable root in the app. Before you can move the app, you must mount /system/app to be read/write. Very easy to do w/ Root Explorer...on the top of the screen, there's a "Mount R/W" button that you press before you paste the file to /system/app.
You can ignore those messages. Happens to me, too. Once in the APN app, press the "Backup APNs". This will create an APN backup folder in your phone's internal SD card. Copy the .xml file I linked above to this folder. Then back to the APN app, press the "Delete APNs" button. Then press the "Restore APNs" button and choose the .xml file linked above. Reboot the phone.
