    Nexus S 4G activated and working on page plus. Latest Sprint MOD PRL 52505 Also

    Hello all, I'm new here and new to page plus. After cobbling together all the guides from various phones and carriers. I was able to activate a Sprint nexus S 4G without much issue on page plus. Data works, haven't bothered with MMS stuff because I never send any.

    Here's the basics of what I did (going to assume people understand the little bits that you have to do with all phones)

    Rooted phone (thanks Xda-developers)

    dialed *#*#8778#*#* and set usb to modem mode

    CDMA workshop -> unlock with default samsung method

    CDMA workshop to set spc to 000000, then upload a page plus PRL (I used an old one), edit your MIN and MDN

    Dial *22890 to update and download the latest prl and activate

    Used QPST according to the EVO guide to set XXXXXXXXX@vzw3g.com in all the right fields. (thank you EVO people, I'll miss my old evo I gave away)

    Everything worked fine including data, (have to turn on roam data, since it's technically roaming on verizon from a sprint phone) (I'm sure mms would work if I bothered with setting it up)


    I got tired of seeing the roam indicator so I read up on prl modding too and hand modded the latest prl for sprint phones.

    Then I downloaded the prl from the phone (52505) and modded all the verizon entries to sprint codes.

    Here's the file if anyone wants it.

    Thanks for the post, I am getting an Epic 4G this weekend and will try this to see how it goes.
    BTW, do you call PP+ customer service and provide them the MEID and even though it is Sprint phone, it still goes through?

    Please note that "howardforums" will appear when someone types in a dealer's name, since dealer's names are not supposed to be posted on this forum, in case anyone else wonders why "howardfroums" appears in the most unlikely of places, sometimes.

    One more question Fib, how is the 3G data? I heard sprint phones can only get edge, 3G is not stable. Is that the case for you phone? Thx.

    I think it is edge, you have to do some tricks to get 3g working, which I don't want to deal with atm. Also since you only get 100mb of data a month anyways, this is a great way to not go over. And yes I did go through a dealer.

    I plan activate the Epic for the sister in law, she is currently using the DX but like phone with Physical Keyboard. She is currently on the 55 so data is not an issue. I like the D3 but it is a little pricey so I was hoping to get her on the Epic because that is what she was using before switching over PP+. Thanks for the reply.

    I followed an instructions from xda and evo here and got the sprint epic 4g working just fine with data. As normal, data keeps switching 3g & 1x. I haven't tested mms since I don't use it. Other than the data switching, everything is working so far.

    followed the instructions per first post and it was a breeze.. could easily put my nexus s 4g on pageplus..

    (did not do the data part of the instructions, as i do not need data anyway.. i am using the mifi router from prepaid provider truconnect)

    thanks, @fibrizo!

    samsung drivers must be installed from http://www.samsung.com/us/support/do...SPH-D700ZKASPR

    and NOT the one that Windows 7 prompts to install from.. I have Win 7 x64

    Is there any way that it will work with CDMAWS 3.8? I can never get my phones to read in QPST2.7.366. I'm running Win 7 64bit I put the Nexus in "UART" and "USB" "Modem Mode" In device Manager it shows the Nexus as port 14 and that's all for the ports. When I open QPST, it shows COM134 waiting Label is COM 134 Phone & Link is N/A. I click Add New Port, Uncheck the Show Serial and USB... and then the Com14 - USB/QC NMEA shows up. I highlight it and click OK and I get Error Enabling Port There was an error enabling COM14. The port may not be working properly or may be busy. (-2147467259 [0x80004005]). Can anyone please help me?? Thank you
