OTA *228 malfunction
In order to use the Over The Air programming you must have a valid Verizon PRL list in your phone. You must check your PRL if it is Verizon one because the flashing usually don't change that. The PRL goes into your phone through loading a QCN file which contains the PRL list. In order to modify the QCN file you must use the KWC PST, posted in this forum.
Anyway, check for the PRL version by dialing 111111 and confirming with OK (enter) It should be something like 50180 or higher. Later, after you execute the *228 operation it may change to something that will fit your location the best.
You can also check your current PRL list by dialing *611 which will call the main wireless directory based on your PRL. The SID number from the QCN file will tell your roaming indicator when to show roaming but has no other functional use.
Flashing the NV memory not necessarily changes logos and other carrier specific stuff. Only complete flashing with a super file (EPROM image) will make a clone of your phone and change it to what you want. That software (SE47tool.exe) was posted here too, the complete image is about 12 Mb and the VERIZON (partial) flash file NS10214.hxb is about 6.5 Mb. So, if you want to make your VM phone to look like a perfect Verizon branded phone you must find one like that and read the flash and write it to yours, after what you have to put back the original ESN because this flashing will change that one too. Good luck.
