    I only want to give everyone a heads up.

    --When you call in for an ESN swap, or freshly activating your phone, the CSR will tell you to enter a ##XXXX# (dont know how many characters) code to enter programming mode on your device. Write this code down and save it.

    *This is your MSL code. This code is unique to each device (ESN Number)


    Now, I don't know for certain if there will be any hacks for this phone (But I am sure there will be)

    But, with an MSL code, you get to enter "programming mode" on your device.

    ....and I know from experience with the PPC6700, it is extremely USEFUL having your MSL code (to update PRL's manually, MSL hack for EVDO, etc etc)

    ***just a friendly reminder

    You're absolutely right about saving the MSL code. I brought home my 700p today and managed to screw something up on it to the point where now it won't connect to the Power Vision network. It will still make and receive calls, but no internet!! I can only assume that when I did a hard reset it erased the MSL or some other code that the Sprint rep had entered into the phone.

    Hard resets shouldn't screw up you 700P that badly. I've done so many hard resets on my 650 than I can count and all functions still work properly.

    I have heard though that they generate a temporary MSL code when you call in. It can only be used that once. After they give you that temporary code you say "it won't work" then they give you a new one & you say it again. Eventually they will give you the permanent one...

    I agree. I've basically worn the reset button out on my old 600. But that's the only thing I can figure. It's been working fine since I bought it today (or yesterday, now), but I did a sync with my home computer and now when I try to use the phone for web access or any app that reqires web access, I get the following message:

    "Error: Registration failure. Check your username and/or password and try again. If this problem persists, contact Sprint." VERY FRUSTRATING!

    So, have you contacted Sprint?

    They're now closed, of course. Unless someone is aware of a 24 hour Sprint customer service number.

    I just hope they're open on Memorial Day.

    can you log into your sprint.com account?

    I believe from there you can check your username for vision...

    I know my username and password. And it's correct in the network section of the phone. But still doesn't work.

    That USED to be the case....it was a "one time MSL code". I write that number down every time I do an ESN swap (and it's more times than I care to admit....cell phone addict!!!). The number they give you now works forever on that specific phone. I have noticed that they aren't as secretive/protective about give out the MSL like they used to be.

    That's true. Fot my 650 I was simply able to call a Sprint rep and tell them to give me the MSL so I could disable the proxies in Blazer! (I wanted to use reverse DUN and use my computer as a modem for my phone.)

    Thats not completly true. They still have the one time code generated, and any older rep thats been there for awhile will tell you that one first. Most reps just use the msl now because thats how the training is now. After you hang up with cust service, try it again if it works your all set, if not call back and say you typed your number in wrong and need to reprogram it, they then will give you the msl.

    The MSL code is the one that starts with ## followed by six digits, correct?

    How do I know the one I wrote down is the real one and not a one-time one?
  19. #19  
    well try to use it more than once. or while you are on the phone & they give it to you, say "oh it didn't work". They may give you a "new" one. Keep saying it didn't work until they give you the "real" one...

    how do you know which one is the REAL one?
