    my samsung fascinate would not work on pageplus

    that's weird... i purchased a verizon samsung fascinate from craigslist for 150. the phone is flawless all around. i call pageplus to get it activated but couldn't get through even after like 40mins on the phone trying everything. the pageplus rep guy told me he's try about everything he can to get it worked. he says people have call in to activate samsung fascinate phones before and it worked without no problem but he just can't seem to get mine's to work. this phone is clean and everything wonder why it wouldn't work?... ****! i feel like i just wasted 150 on something i shouldn't at the first place..

    But what is the problem? If it is a hardware problem and the phone was advertised as working, simply return it. If you or PPC has not given/input the ESN correctly, it won't work. Did you triple check the ESN? Those 8s and Bs look a lot alike on those little stickers!

    EDIT:
    I just noticed you got it on CL, so maybe returning it isn't an option like it would be if you had used eBay. So be more detailed about the problem, and maybe somebody here can help.

    Yeah I did a Samsung Fascinate for a friend on Friday and it went quick and smooth with no problems. Did everything online on Page Plus web site including porting their number from Verizon. Port was complete in under 5 minutes and then I did OTA programming on the Fascinate and he was off on running on Page Plus in under 20 minutes and saving 100 bucks a month.

    Are you Fascinate fans having any issues with them like intermittent freezing with the four menu keys and power button becoming unresponsive? (requiring a battery remove-restart) I really love the phone, its great display, everything else about it.

    Its all original Verizon. I hope to keep my MMS operating if I make any mods.

    Are you on the Gingerbread 2.3.5 release for the fascinate? Have you tried a factory data reset? If not, you would need to backup anything you need first as the factory reset will erase your data like apps, phone logs, contacts, text. Pics wont be affected. If you have a software issue this should resolve it. If its hardware related the problems will continue after the reset.

    Ed,
    I would suggest installing a custom rom, like cyanogenmod. CM7 is solid.

    This would require rooting.

    Root it and follow the directions on Xda etc and you can do all that and more.

    Your on Froyo 2.2. Fascinate does have an update to Gingerbread 2.3.5 from Verizon but before you worry about that I would try a hard reset to see if it resolves your issues or not. If your gonna give it a shot follow the preferred method in this article to do the reset: http://support.verizonwireless.com/c....html?id=35372
