    How to Disable EVDO on W755

    I am trying to disable EVDO on the W755 I just recieved. I have searched extensively for the answer to this and have found 2 possibilities, However none work. Has anyone managed to turn off EVDO on this phone? Perhaps I need better instructions then what I have already read such as #073887* is there a certain place to type that to get to the hidden menu or what? I must be missing something here. Thanks for any help.

    Here is how, same like the V3M. I tried it on my own KRZR:

    How to disable EVDO for a Verizon V3C

    1. Open your phone. Press #0SETUP* or #073887* -- QUICKLY -- If you pause while typing #0SETUP* in, it may not work. Also note that thats a ZERO [0] not an OH [O]

    2. "Enter Security Code:" should be on the screen - type 000000 which is SIX [6] ZERO's [000000] and then Pres the right soft-key which is the top-right button, closest to the screen.

    3. Press the up on the keypad TWICE to scroll to Test Mode, otherwise just find test mode and then press select

    4. Press down to highlight Enabled and then press the right soft-key that says Select. NOW! It will go back to the main "Programming Menu" which means that it that did indeed enable Test Mode.

    5. Press End/Hang up once or twice to get back to the main screen. You should now see your wallpaper. Press the CLR button and then press the left soft-key -- QUICKLY -- You need to press CLR then LEFT SOFT-KEY quickly or it may not activate test mode. You should now see a white background with blue letters that say FTS.

    6. Press the right soft-key key *3 TIMES* or until you see at the top "ServOpt: NoChg" - "AudioOpt: Auto"

    7. Press the down key *8 TIMES* or until your see a > next to "HDR Pref: Auto" -- >HDR Pref: Auto

    8. Press the right soft-key TWICE labeled CHANGE or until it says CDMA -- >HDR Pref: cdma

    9. Press the left soft-key ONCE labeled EXIT and it will flash white real quick, then appear to be frozen...

    10. Your phone is resetting. You will not be able to press for NEXT or PREV. You have to wait about 5-10 seconds until you CAN press the right or left soft-key for NEXT or PREV. The screens may cycle a couple different screens indicating that its ready.

    11. Press the CLR button and then press the left soft-key -- QUICKLY -- You need to press CLR then LEFT SOFT-KEY quickly or it may not de-activate test mode.

    12. EVDO is officially disabled and capable of being re-enabled. However, test mode is still running in the background and we need to turn it off. We will go back to the programming menu.

    13. Press #0SETUP* or #073887* -- QUICKLY -- If you pause while typing #0SETUP* in, it may not work.

    14. "Enter Security Code:" should be on the screen - type 000000

    15. Press the up on the keypad TWICE to scroll to Test Mode, otherwise just find test mode and then press select

    16. Make sure Disabled is highlighted and then press the right soft-key that says Select. NOW! It will go back to the main "Programming Menu" which means that it that did indeed disable Test Mode.

    11. Press End or Left soft-key for exit and you're back to your regular 'ol phone without regular 'ol EVDO. Now the fun part is remembering this whole process should you want to switch back at any time, or should this simply not work for you. You can always print this page for reference. Enjoy!

    I know this is an old thread, but it is missing a bit of info that is highly relevant.
    To access the test mode menu follow the instructions posted by Catoh, BUT, after pressing end to get out of the #0SETUP* menu, you must dial any 10 digit phone number then press clear then press the upper left soft key to access the FTS menu. Just pressing clear then upper left soft key does nothing on software flex: COOL01_00.30.08P

    So

    Dial: #0SETUP*
    Enter SPC: 000000
    Choose menu option: 9. Test Mode
    Select: Enable and press ok
    End
    8005501234, Clear, Upper Left Soft Key [the key here is to quickly enter any 10 digits then clear then upper left soft key, you have even less time to enter this than the time allowed to enter 74663#CLRCLR when manually programming this device.]
