    Update - although I found many people describing this issue, I found no solution listed (which is why I am posing it here). I pretty much wrote this off as a loss, until I just looked back here and noticed messages about the new Verizon software. Installing Verizon 1.11 firmware FIXED IT!!!!!!!! The phone can now be turned on, and I will try to activate it again as soon as I get a chance (online activation did not work, even though the phone has been activated on VZW before, go figure)

    What, if any, settings do I need to fix to completely convert the phone now?

    Thank you everyone for the info.

    I think once you follow the directions listed on the previous page about tokenwriter and on verizon's firmware page you are good to go...

I think some of the Phone application menus may be slightly different also. The web browser defaults are different, and there are also a lot less favorites. There is just one for downloads where I think there were 5 or 6 with the Sprint firmware.

    I have tested making and recieving calls and data connectivity and everything is working fine. I have not done anything with the MMS application but I will probably look at that today. Oddly enough even after the firmware update, I still had to add back the Verizon data connection. The defaults are still Sprint PCS Vision and then Sprint Provisioning. Thats the only remnant of Sprint data still left on my phone at this point.
    I figured out how to clear out the old Sprint network settings that were still left after installing the Verizon Firmware. Type #*#774 , press dial, and then click "Reset to Factory Default Options". It will then ask for the MSL. This got rid of my network connections for "Sprint PCS Vision" and "Sprint Provisioning", and replaces it with one called "Verizon Wireless". It seems like this is the only thing it changed, and it didn't even reset the device after running that command.

    Oddly enough though, it won't connect with the default "Verizon Wireless" connection. I get a PPP timeout error. I added back a seperate High Speed Wireless connection though like I had before and was able to connect again on the first try. Maybe I have to do a hard reset to get it to use the default connection. I have not tried that yet.

    This thread is incredible. I know how much time all must have spent figuring out how this is done as I've just spent the last week just catching up! I'm truly grateful as I've updated my old Sprint T600 to VZW firmware 1.11 simply and easily by following the instructions on this thread. All is now good with the phone itsekf but I'm encountering the VZW problem first discussed on the thread last August viz. VZW won't activate my Sprint ESN on their network. I've tried 2x with different customer service reps over the phone and so far, no dice. (They were both very friendly, however.) Any advice on how to convince VZW to activate my verizonized Sprint T600?

    BTW, the backstory on why I'm trying to do this now even though I'm actually typing this post on a VZW T600? I'm a long-time Sprint subscriber and T600 owner who just switched to VZW. I figured I'd try and save the $200+ for the new phone (at this point I'll have to return it) by fixing and using the T600 Ilve already got. Also, why should I pay $200+ for exactly the same CDMA T600 I lve already got?! Just smelled wrong when VZW told me I couldn't use my existing phone. Thanks to the good people of TreoCentral, I know I was right!

    Thanks.

    Keep calling. Just say it is a Treo T600 (do not mention Sprint, if they ask, say it says "Verizon" when powering on (true), give as little info as possible and let them figure it out). FYI, it will show up as "AirCard", or something like it because that is who made the wireless hardware for Treo, so it is technically correct. I had to activate mine twice (first time it broke) and both times they were a little confused, but just staying on the line and letting them figure it out did the trick. Both times it took one call.

    First of all, great stuff you have written. I have a Verizon locked Treo 600 that I would like to use with my service provider in India. The Kyocera PST doesnot seem to support USB. It is unable to recognise my phone on connecting the data cable. Please help

    Warning: The following guide is for information purposes only. Programming your phone may result in damage that could render your phone useless and may void your warrantee. Anyone attempting the following does so at their own risk. There are no guarantees or assumptions of liability for anything that you may do. WRITE DOWN YOUR ORIGINAL SETTINGS

    Required Hardware:
    1. Sprint Treo 600
    2. TREO 600 Serial HotSync Cable (serial cables for TREO 2xx, 3xx are OK)

    Required Software:
    1. Kyocera Wireless PST 3.1 (Product Support Tool). You may have to search around for this, but it was last seen here:
    (This software was designed to change the internal information of Kyocera wireless handsets).
    2. Verizon PRL file: (see bottom of post)

    Required Information:
    1. Your TREO 600 MSL (Master Subsidy Lock). Every TREO 600 is assigned a unique 6-digit MSL code.
    You must either use special software (BitPIM or UniCDMA) or convince someone at Sprint to give it to you. There were some tricks to doing that somewhere on this forum. There were a few people out there willing to obtain your MSL for a fee ranging anywhere from $5 to $50, but it seems that Sprint somehow put an end to that.
    Try here for a link to BitPIM software.
    And for how to use BitPim, follow this thread.

    In summary, connect the Treo using the cable.
    Launch BitPim
    On the Treo push ##3424 then dial.
    Click on the Filesystem tab and go to nvm --> nvm --> and right click on nvm_0002 and choose Hexdump. You may have to try right clicking on one of the other files (nvm_0003, etc).

    The instructions on how to read the data and find your MSL are on that same thread listed above.

    Step 1: Changing Sprint's TREO 600 PRL, MSL and Phone Number.

    1. Install Kyocera Wireless PST Software
    2. Connect TREO 600 using the Serial Cable.
    3. Turn on the Treo and enter the phone mode
    4. Punch ##3424 followed by dial button.
    You should see the message "Passthrough Enabled"
    5. Launch the "Kyocera Wireless PST-Service Programming" program
    (Start -> Programs -> Kyocera Wireless PST -> Kyocera Wireless PST-Service Programming).
    6. Select "QCT-6200" in the Phone Selection dialog box and click OK.
    7. Select the "Settings" tab (if not already there).
    8. Press "Read from Phone"
    9. At the "Enter Service Programming" dialog box, enter the phone's original MSL code.
    10. After reading all information, change Service Programming to 000000.
    11. Click the CDMA Tab
    12. Change the MCC box to 000 (3 zeros) (Write down ALL your original values for possible future use)
    13. Change the 11_12 box to 00 (2 zeros)
    14. Change the "directory" and "IMSI_S" boxes to your 10 digit Verizon phone number (no dases).
    15. Click Roam Tab, and click the "Browse" button.
    16. Locate and select the Verizon PRL file.
    17. Click the "Write To Phone" button. Wait about 1 minute.
    18. Disconnect the Treo

    Step 2: Activating your Phone

    1. Go to http://www.verizonwireless.com
    2. Login to your account and register your TREO 600 ESN.
    3. Dial 611 and you should get a Verizon message.
    4. You can now dial *228 to update your PRL and Phone setting.
    5. If you have "Roaming" message on phone screen, punch ##3825 or ##727 or ##2362 the Dial. This is because the TREO 600 sometimes works as PCS only or CDMA only. 3825 means "Dual", 727 means "PCS (1900Mhz)", and 2362 means "CDMA (800Mhz)".
    You can check which Band is being used by punching ##33284.

    Step 3: Activating Express Network Data
    Note: There are 2 separate methods of doing this. Find which one works for you.
    1. Go into Network Preferences --> menu key --> Options --> View Log
    2. Type in: "pdpset 1" and hit the enter key...then hit done
    3. Use your new MSL code if asked.
    Method 1:
    4. Create a new service connection...
    Hit menu, select New, and fill in:
    Service: Express Network
    Connection: Virtual Modem
    User Name: your10digitphonenum@vzw3g.com
    Password: vzw
    Phone: #777 (make sure you include the "#" sign)
    6. Click on [Details], Click on [Advanced], Click on [Script]
    Enter the following script:
    Send: at$qcmdr=3
    Send CR:
    Send: at$qcqnc=0
    Send CR:
    End:
    7. Click [OK], then [OK]
    8. Click on Connect and watch your tower icon change to data mode

    Method 2: 4. Create a new service connection...
    5. Hit menu, select New, and fill in:
    Service: Express Network
    Connection: High Speed Wireless
    User Name: your10digitphonenum@vzw3g.com
    Password: vzw
    6. Click on Details, click off Mobile IP, then OK
    7. Click on Connect and watch your tower icon change to data mode


    Alternative Step 3: Activating QNC Data
    (Doing this may cause EN to no longer work. This problem may have been fixed somewhere else in this thread. If you find the fix, PM me and I will update it here)

    1. Preferences --> Network
    menu --> New
    Service: QNC
    Connection: Virtual Modem
    User Name: qnc
    Password: qnc
    Phone: #777
    2. Details... --> Advanced... --> Script...
    Send: at$qcmdr=2
    Send CR:
    Send at$qcqnc=1
    Send CR:
    End:
    OK --> OK --> Connect

    Step 4: Fixing Blazer

    Go into phone mode.
    Enter ##3282 --> DIAL -->
    Select [menu] --> Browser --> [Modify]
    Clear both Primary and Secondary NGG's and their ports.
    Save and browse.

    Changing Sprint logo
    If you want to change "Sprint" logo on left top side of phone screen, you must edit the banner of TREO internal Modem.
    1. Using the "Software Download" feature of Kyocera Wireless PST, you can download all NV Data.
    2. Edit the Sprint Banner with a hex editor (like QEdit),
    3. Restore again with the modified file to change the logo.
    4. For complete details, read further into this thread.

    Changing the Phone Startup Screen:
    See the attached file below. This will also upgrade your dial pad. I made the splash screen, others made the dial pad.

    For detailed programming instructions try here.



    Here's a quick tip for updating the PRL: *228 itself will simply connect to the carrier that it's already set to. However, *22801 and *22802 will link to the A and B channels respectively (they're 800Mhz CDMA channels), while *22803 through *22805 (or even 06, etc.. I don't know) link to the 1900 Mhz PCS channels. In New York City, Verizon is the B channel, so that once Verizon Wireless knew my ESN, I could dial *22802 and update the PRL that way.

    Works in Progress:

    1. Picture messaging
    2. EMS (1,000 character SMS messages, as opposed to the normal 160-175?)

    Again, thanks to everybody here for making this possible.

    PM me for any errors/corrections...

    My story: I'm helping someone else become wiser and use a Treo instead of something else.

    He has VZW service and received a Sprint phone. I finally had time to get it set up for him. We've converted it and it will make calls no problem.

    When setting up the Network items, I set up the Express Network and it would connect. I then set up the QNC connection (not being sure what either was as I'm Cingular) and it didn't connect. And of course, as Galen's instructions say, the EN setting no longer works.

    I've deleted and readded the network connections to no avail. I've also made sure that the username and password is correct. Does anyone know how to get EN to work after adding a QNC connection?

    Thanks for any help!

    Edit: I also re-uploaded the prl and checked all the settings in the Kyocera tool.

    Use Method 1 from GalenMD's steps to create the Express Network Connection. Don't forget to set up the script. You'll find that once you've used this method to dial in one time, you can go back and set up your Express Network connection using Method 2 again.

    I remember doing that and it didn't work. I set up everything several times again to no avail... (Will try again tomorrow anyway - had to give it to him since that's now his active cell phone...)

    Any other thoughts?

    When you set up a QNC connection, the script sets a modem parameter for the default connection type:

    Send at$qcqnc=1

    When you go back and try to set up the Express Network connection using the High Speed Wireless device, it'll use this default QNC connection, which will fail.
    However, if you set up a connection using Method 1 and select Virtual Modem, in the script you turn off the QNC parameter:

    Send at$qcqnc=0

    You can continue using this Virtual Modem connection, or set up a new EN connection using the High Speed Wireless device.

    Can I put the "at" command in the same way I put in the "pdpset" command so I don't have to set up the connections again? If so, do I need the "send" before the command?

    Thanks again for your help!

    You need the serial cable... Others in this thread have experienced this problem... I myself had the same problem and had to order the cable that connects through the serial port... Not sure why the USB doesnt work, but no-one has gotten it to...

    As stated in the FAQ, you need a serial cable:

    Nope, you cannot just type it in the log view. You have to create a connection and a script.

    ok. It definitely didn't work for me. Any other thoughts as to why we can't connect?

    Error message: "Error: Please check your username and password and try again. Your mobile service provider may not support dial-up connections."

    Thanks again!
