Using Sprint Samsung Galaxy Victory 4G on Page Plus?
I was given a Spring Samsung Galaxy Victory on the pay-as-you-go program as a gift. It was purchased online. However, there is zero Sprint service where I live. I've gone through the process of cancelling the service. Today I contacted Page Plus so I can try to switch to the new phone. I gave my old and new MEIDs, and was told that they cannot program the phone because it's a 4G phone. I tried *228 and *22890 (I get a "Mobile network not available" message), tried "active this device" ("Network is not available"), as well as updating the profile (I get a 407 error). Meanwhile, my number is stuck in limbo.
Has Sprint locked this phone? Can I even use this thing on PPC? Help!
Yes, you can use it.... But it will need to be flashed to Page Plus Service. Not a phone that you can just OTA activate.
I am assuming I need flashing software. Can anyone recommend a TRUSTWORTHY, FREE program? I know this is all at-your-own-risk stuff, but would like some help finding something reliable since I've never had to do such a thing. Thanks!
