    No one has posted about any such attempt. If you get further into the process please post your experience? No one knows if Tracfone had Samsung lock down/lock out anything on the ST/Net10 Androids.

    If you're trying to get it working on Straight Talk and it's not, you'll need to contact Straight Talk customer service. The phone can't be manually programmed, as it needs to activate over-the-air to properly provision data services. They'll most likely instruct you to ##786# reset the phone, which requires the 6 digit SPC code (some of the methods used for the similar Boost Prevail may work).

    If the phone still won't activate after the reset, it's probably screwed up in some way hardware/software wise and will likely need to be replaced by Straight Talk (which it may be under warranty).

    Now if you're trying to "manually program" the phone for another carrier, don't bother. These phones are annoyingly locked down and the usual methods of programming them don't work. It's best just to sell the phone to someone who wants to use it as intended and buy something else.

    they said the same thing about the Droid X, but they unlocked it. if there's interest it can happen.

    The Droid X was an expensive high-end postpaid phone. The Precedent/Prevail is a low end Android phone designed specifically for the prepaid market (it doesn't even have a proximity sensor). Seems like it would be a hollow victory.

    what i like about this phone is it's CDMA and gets decent coverage. it could be better if it could have a custom rom.

    Check out Android Area 51 forum on Tapatalk for a way to root the precedent and they have a good gingerbread rom too.
