I've been stuck now for the past day trying to get this HTC Thunderbolt 4G working properly on Page Plus. I should note beforehand that even though I'm using CDMA Workshop 2.7 and/or QPST that I am NOT doing anything illegal, such as ESN changes or cloning devices by any means.
I started out by opening CDMA-WS and sending the SPC to the phone to unlock it (also putting the device into diagnostic mode), and changing the R-UIM to NV only. After I did this, I sent the latest Page Plus PRL to the device and rebooted. At this point the phone received a signal and showed full bars. I then inserted my MDN, MIN, changed my IMSI to 31000 and used the last ten digits of my MDN to fill in the blanks as seen on a youtube video. I used 310 as my MCC and 00 as my MNC, wrote it to the phone, and then rebooted the device. Whenever I attempt to make a phone call, the number goes through and says "Dialing" but I never hear anything coming out of the speaker. I tried making a phone call and receiving a phone call, and nothing is going through. I'm not worried about data or anything like that yet, and honestly don't really have to have it. I'm just looking to get talk/text working and I'll be all set.
If anybody has any info that could help me out, I'd appreciate it.
Nevermind, figured it out...turns out I tried to activate with the pESN which isn't gonna work.
Have no idea how to convert this 99* MEID to a workable ESN number to transfer over to Page Plus with. I've tried everything I know how to do in CDMA Workshop 3.7.5 and 3.8.0 and still can't find the proper device's MEID or ESN that I can use to activate the phone with.
That was the video I used to try to perform the flash, but there are some extra settings that person doesn't reveal. I got in touch with a distant relative that is in the phone flashing business, and he pretty much told me these 4G devices need some more intricate reprogramming, and also that most of these craigslist-type phone flashers just remove the MEID completely from the device and use a 'transplanted' ESN from an older dead device to activate the phone (your basic ESN cloning method...probably not legal either).
4G phones are nothing but a pain in our (prepaid users) butts now...until Page Plus acquires 4G support for their devices, I'll be sticking with H2O Wireless (even though I don't care much for them either).
I CAN'T GET THE DATA UP on my HTC Thunderbolt on Page Plus
I've been working on this phone for 3 days now, and I can't seem to get the data up. With the 4g card in I can SEE the APN, but can't edit it. With the card out my phone won't let me see it. I don't know if the settings are right, so I'm going to try to attach screen shots of my settings. I hope someone can help me get data on this phone. I can call and text, but no data.
