How old is "old"... for a phone will do the trick? Do you mean the ones when you have to pull out the antennas from your cell?

any will work cause your just gonna put the phone you want the MSL for on it after wards. Since sprint now provides programing instructions when you activate a phone just in case you hae to do it manually lol I think they call it a lock code on their and not the MSL code but same thing I program at least 50 phones a day it seems lol

Download Connectbot on your device or use ADB.

ConnectBot-git-2010-10-08_01-19-17.apk 705 KB




Open Connectbot. In the small dropdown box on the bottom left that says SSH, click and choose local. Put Android or whatever in the nickname box. Click on Android.
Use the command "getprop ril.MSL" and hit enter.
Your MSL will be displayed.

Enjoy!

Hey Ajac,
If that doesnt work try just typing getprop.
It will show a long list, scroll down to the section that starts with ril.
You will see ril.msl, the 6 digit MSL number will follow that.

"For anything else, 6"

Press 6

"Just a moment while I find someone who can help you. By the way, your call my be monitored or recorded"

Now wait for a customer service representative to come on the line. And if you are calling during normal business hours, get comfortable, it'll be awhile.


I think I'll take Connectbot.
