    Is it possible to create a FrankenPre2 using a Verizon Pre2 and a Verizon PrePlus? The purpose would be to keep the same ESN essentially moving the COM board over. Would this work? I assume the steps related to moving the tokens over would apply but then afterwords the basic 2.1 doctor (not metadoc) would be used - correct?

    don't take my word for it,but you should be able to swap the comm boards and then use the standard verizon pre 2 doctor.

    I'm curious why someone would want to do that though. Why not just call up verizon and have them set you up with your pre 2. Its not like there will be an activation fee.

    Ok, this is the easiest of all. Just swap the comm board (not the whole bezel) and run the stock Verizon Pre 2 Dr. DONE!

    The advantage to this is that the "free mobile hotspot" stays FREE.

    Is there no token mess at all - just a simple swap of the board?

    Correct. I did something similar with a Sprint Pre Plus, no need to mess with tokens.

    Personally, I would just use Freetether and avoid possibly voiding my warranty by opening up the Pre 2.

    I would have told you if there was. :-)

    The Comm board on the VZ Pre2 is identical to what is on the VZ Pre plus

    This is a clever plan to keep your plan as is and your upgrade token

    Just at expense of warranty.

    Just reviving an old thread and asking - has anyone out there done this - and if so were you able to keep the free hotspot free?

    I've done it and it works great. Verizon sees my phone as a pre plus, my contract is the same(still have my upgrade available, hopespot still works. Plus webos 2.1 install OTA so no need Dr. Anything.

    This is a very cool concept.
    Gotta say, I'm fascinated by this possibility.

    Now just gotta start searching for threads
    or web resources on how to properly swap out a Pre com board..
    It's probably something easy..once you know how to do it.
