Re: Help with my palm 700x

What is your issue? When trying to sync, it says you have to return it to VZW?

I would love to help, but I'm having trouble understanding the post. Sounds like the phone was flashed to Metro PCS service when purchased, but the OP then flashed the Palm update for the VZW 700W and now it's nearly bricked.

Re: Help with my palm 700x

You're not going to be able to use this on VZW if it's programmed for Metro PCS. Flashing a VZW update on a Metro programmed phone and then expecting it to work on VZW isn't gonna work. I'm surprised anything is working
