Question Question on PagePlus Data...

Hey there everyone,

It may seem strange to see 2 Bunny in the Android and Samsung section. A series of very unfortunate events has forced me to pick up a Samsung Epic here at the last second (you can learn more about that here) and I've decided to activate it on PagePlus instead of Sprint or Boost (which is what I had been planning to do with the Diamond anyway).

I found this really nice instruction guide on Google docs that basically walks you through step by step with everything you need to do in QPST and on the handheld to get everything going great. I've been up and running now for about a week and I have to say that everything is working about perfectly now except for one thing: EvDo data.

I tried lots of tweaks and settings in QPST, but nothing seems to be getting EvDo to work. I dialed ##DEBUG# and right now have it set up to force 1xRTT, and that works fine, but obviously only at 1x speeds. If I go back and switch to "hybrid" mode again, it just doesn't connect, and because Android is annoying and won't tell you what the heck it's doing, I don't know exactly where it's getting hung up at in the whole process. Back on Windows Mobile, I could just tap the taskbar and it would tell me if it was trying to connect, and if it failed, it would let me know.

Basically, I fell kind of "left out" by the device since it isn't telling me where it's getting "lost" at in the whole EvDo thing. Does anyone know why it isn't connecting, or of any way to find out what the device is at least trying to do?

Thanks.

- 2B

Re: Question on PagePlus Data...

This is for boost mobile but I am guessing this is what you want:

Epic 4g to Boost Mobile (how to get the 3g working)- 2/4/11 UPDATE (MMS & VM WORKING) - xda-developers

oh and welcome to the dark side ..we have milk and cookies...

I did the same thing, except for PagePlus. I want to figure out why I can't use my EvDo.

I would suggest the new T-Mobile plan (if T-Mobile is good in your area)

You get for $30 a month:

100 minutes
5gb data with 4G, (throttling after 5gb)
unlimited texts


as for your issue...hm..we have something called logcat which helps debug errors but not sure if it includes exactly what you need :/

Re: Question on PagePlus Data...

Yea I'm with @gTen u should've went with one of those Tmo plans. U will also get HSPA and HSPA+ connectivity which is far faster than EvDO especially sprint's implementation.
