    I need help, I just got an unlocked GSM Pre 2.
    Went to Franken Pre it by putting a Sprint comm board inside. I've done this 2-3 times before with Verizon Pre Pluses, so I'm comfortable with the process.

    The problem is, the black and white cables on the GSM Pre 2 are much longer than the ones in the Pre- (or the Pre+)! On the GSM Pre 2, they actually connected to the bottom of the comm board, as opposed to the top on the Sprint Pre-.

    I looked carefully at the instructions and there is no mention of this issue, and it doesn't seem reflected in any of the pictures or pictorials. I know several people have been able to put a Sprint comm board into a GSM Pre 2 so I don't know what I'm missing. There's no room to hide the excess cable lengths anywhere... so if you know what I am talking about please help!

    Thanks!

    You need to use the back half of the phone from the sprint pre. (back half of the phone=the part with the gold antenna pattern). Once you do this, you will be using the correct antenna pattern layout for CDMA and the correct cable lengths.

    I'm going to try that right now! Thanks!

    EDIT: Worked like a charm, don't know how I missed that! Thanks again!

    PS. In the meantime, I had activated a 3rd Pre, so I had to move the Sprint comm board from the Pre2 to a Pre-, activate it, then move it back and then meta-doctor. I actually did all this while riding the Amtrak to NYC. So, if I can do it on a moving train with ease and in under an hour, anyone could do this!
