Re: Help Please!

The only thing you can do (from what I understand) is call Alltel and see if they will accept and add the ESN in thier database so you can activate it on thier network. But getting that done is more than a challange I hear. Maybe some others will chime in and help.

Re: Help Please!

First off find an Alltel ROM, allow the customizations to run, then call Alltel Tech Support and ask for an ESN change, don't tell them where you got the phone, and give them the ESN. If it works great. If not you're screwed.

Re: Help Please!

This is very possible I am living proof. I switch from Sprint to Alltel recently without a hitch.

The first thing I did was research switching a sprint phone to a different carrier. Everything I found said it couldnt be done. But I was determined

So the first thing I did was unlock my phone by getting the MSL number (using GETSPD) and reprogramming it to 000000 (using QPST). Then I flashed to the official Alltel rom.

So now my phone was unlocked and ready to go all I needed to do was get service with another company.

I then went to an Alltel store and signed up for new service. I just got the free phone for now till I could get my Touch hooked up.

I waited about a week and called Alltel Tech Support and told the girl I needed to activate my new cell phone I got off ebay.

The girl asked if it was an Alltel phone and I told her yes it says Alltel when I turn it on Then she asked for the ESN number which I gave her. She then said we will have to manually program it. At this point I just followed all her directions. After we were done I had a working Sprint HTC Touch on my new Alltel account.

So this is possible with the right amount of research and effort.

Re: Help Please!

Sure I can help.. Go ahead and pm me when you have some time on your hands and I can walk you through it. Meanwhile I will write up a much more detailed process for you.

Edit: This is the procedure I followed to unlock my touch.

Quote:
I did this for my Sprint Touch. I am still using it in the USA but my phone has been modified to support other carriers with no problem.

The steps are simple:

Here is what you need to do:

1. Download GetSPC(attached below)
2. Unzip to desktop
3. Turn off phone and remove battery.
4. Write down your HEX ESN
5. Power your device back on
6. Connect via ActiveSync or WMDC
7. Copy entire folder to main memory on device.
8. Run GetSPC.exe
9. In the top box type in your HEX ESN(make sure caps is on)
10. Click generate or whatever the button is named
11. The resulting number should be a 6 digit number, your MSL, write it down.
12. Search for, download and install Qualcomm's QPST tool.(not freeware)

THE FOLLOWING STEPS ARE VERY DANGEROUS SO MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW MY DIRECTIONS EXACTLY.
13. Run QPST Configuration(run as admin if Vista)
14. From the Dialpad, dial ##3424#(##diag#)
15. Connect device to computer via USB(this will install drivers)
16. In QPST Configuration, click ports.
17. Continue to add ports until the QPST Configuration detects your phone
18. Under active phones it should display your phone.
19. Click Start Clients/Service Programming
20. Select phone and click ok.

DO NOT LEAVE FIRST TAB, THE SETTINGS TAB. THIS IS THE ONLY TAB WE WILL NEED TO CHANGE ANY SETTINGS

21. Under the settings tab, click Read from phone.
22. Input your MSL you got from GetSPC earlier.
23. Under codes where it says Service Programming, change this to 000000
24. Click Write to Phone
25. Wait 1 minute
26. Close Qualcomm QPST one window at a time.
27. Disconnect the USB cable from your device
28. Perform Soft reset once
29. Test new MSL(##000000#)
30. If new code does not go through, hard reset.

31. Depending on what device you have, follow the necessary steps to unlock your phone so you can flash a new ROM to it.

32. Install OEM ROM from carrier of choice or build your own custom ROM using the new carrier's information.

33. Follow instructions to flash new OS to device.

34. Call service provider and do some sweet talking to get them to activate the phone on their network. You may need to do some serious sweet talking because Sprint ESNs are not in Verizon's database and vice versa. This goes for all CDMA carriers.

Good luck.
Here is a site with all the info and links as well...
