Re: CDMA not working in india

Dear Headhair,

I am struggling to get the CDMA for reliance activated on my LG Fathom.. and I need help from you..

I have the v7 rom in my phone.
1. I got the MEID registered through the 3rd party as suggested in previous threads. (I used to get reliance welcome message much before I opted for this step)
2. I got all the details as committed by 3rd party.
3. I updated the AKEY.
4. I got the GSK also from reliance web world. They have activated the same in their system.
5. Now when I dial *228, it gives me a welcome message from reliance, but I was unable to select the language coz my keypad did not accept any digit to enable me to select a language. ( the welcome message says, to continue in english please press 1, but the phone does not accept 1 despite multiple attempts.)
6. I replaced the lgedialparser.dll in \Windows folder on the phone. Still same situation as in step 5.
7. Use EFS explorer and deleted the eri.bin file, restarted the phone and tried again. Still same situation as in step 5.
8. Deleted eri.bin from \Windows folder, restarted the phone and tried again. Still same situation as in step 5. Note that after restarting the phone, eri.bin file again appears in \Windows folder on the phone
9. Finally I resorted to a factory default. Now the phone gives me a message "Activation not available". Note that even before I opted for registering the MEID with 3rd party, I used to get "welcome to reliance" message. So I assume, Factory reset did not screw up anything.
10. One more thing that I noted in the phone when put to CDMA mode is, earlier in the band tab it used to show me 3 options Home only, Automatic A and Automatic B. But after factory reset I can see only Home Only and Automatic.

Please advice, I am desperate to have CDMA activated, else gonna loose 1000 Rs. (500 for MEID activation and 500 Webstore took from as security deposit +initial balance)

Re: CDMA not working in india

Hi crkmenon,

The problem may be due to V7 ROM.

I am using v5 Rom & Modified the lgedialparser.dll file.
Please downgrade your ROM to V5 (or) please copy
lgedialparser.dll from your phone's windows directory
(please note that this is hidden file) & upload somewhere.
I will modify the file for you.

Hope to see you activated to reliance very soon.

Re: CDMA not working in india

Hi Headhair,

I downgraded the rom to v5. downloaded from media fire.

After the downgrade, I updated the AKey, replaced the lgedialparser.dll,updated the PRL. now I am able to connect to reliance, i get the welcome message and after I press 1 to select the language it says "sorry your phone could not be activated. please contact reliance customer care." I took the phone to reliance web world from where I bought the GSK. The customer care told me that I need to get the RSN unlocked from LG which I am sure LG in India cannot/will not do for me. One RSN is released is when reliance can put the number for me post activation. I have checked my MEID registration and I see the expected positive result from reliance. (just to make sure my MEID was registered.)

I am back home and checked again for eri.bin. the file does not exist in ERI folder when i check through EFS explorer. But I do see the file in \Windows folder and every time I delete it comes immediately without even waiting for any reboot.

Any clue what is to be done ? Appreciate your help.

Please let me clear.
when you get the message? After you press 1 (or) after
inputting 9 digit pin
Have you checked the status of your MEID using 53733?

Re: CDMA not working in india

it comes after pressing 1 to select english as the language. Does not prompt to enter the pin. I checked the MEID number by sending SMS from customer care executive's phone. It confirmed the MEID by stating " can be used with prepaid GSK, postpaid GSK and HCC". HCC I understand from your previous threads is not valid anymore or provided by reliance. I bought a postpaid GSK. I argued with the customer care that my MEID is registered with reliance, but she kept insisting that I need to get the MEID unlocked from LG.

Please try manual settings.

Run that file

You will be prompted to enter spc.
Enter 000000 (six Zeros)

Select Service prg
Change
MDN=<Your Reliance Mobile Number-10 digits>

HomeSID=14655

Select more

Mcc=404

CDMA homeSid/Nid as below

Save. Phone itself will restart. Wait

After restarting try your registration. & reply.

Actually I didnot have this type of hurdles.

Re: CDMA not working in india

Hi,

Finally I got my phone working with reliance CDMA. I tried all I could on my phone.. finally spoke to the 3rd party who registered the MEID. he confidently said issue is from reliance end not my phone and asked me to contact another reliance web world. finally I wrote to customer care over email, they asked for details like the MEID/RSN number, the Sr. No on the MDN/reliance GSK. I tried today and got the message to enter the 9 digit pin and then in next few seconds, i got the message your phone is activated... I guess the issue was that when I went to buy the GSK, the webworld staff did not ask for MEID number on my phone. and hence the phone number was not mapped to MEID on their system, which I strongly believe was then done by the remote customer care team. This is something the 3rd party MEID registrant also told me, stating my number has not been retained against my MEID.

well finally I am happy to use CDMA.. next challenge is to get the +91 prefix working and sending SMS... I have already changed the regional settings to United Kingdom. this was long tested, so did not drill my brain so far and just changed the settings to united kingdom. and having outbound calls prefixed with 009198xxxxxxxx.. sms does not go.. so have to remove the +91 and prefix 0... will work on this issue and let all know how to fix this.

I thank you headhair/ hero121/pizzaboy for all info shared in this forum to help get CDMA activated on LG fathom...
