your comment has me very confused. as far as i know, you cannot just go to Sprint with a FrankenPre and have them activate it. The comm board must be in an original Pre with webOS 1.x to activate successfully.

My experience has always been to put the comm board in the Pre-, activate, then swap to the new host chassis and run the META DOCTOR, not just the standard doctor. That will also blow out your settings.
But hey maybe the Sprint guy did something amazing if you're making calls and receiving texts. So, just in case, MAKE SURE TO CHECK THAT DATA IS TURNED ON in the Preferences menu of the Telephone app.
After that, you can do ##DEBUG# on the dialpad and see what it says for your EVDO IP address. See if it's in an active data state or if it's just shut off.
Also, try ##DATA# to see if your sprintpcs email address is assigned to the phone. but as far as i know, neither Impostah nor modifications to the ##DATA menus with a master subsidy unlock will help. i've always had to go back to the Pre- to activate the board. (so let me know if you pull it off otherwise.)
my thread history includes my last franken build, and i put in a lot of links to helpful sources.
i'm pretty sure what Herrie is suggesting is for bypassing activation and making it a wifi only device. this can be done with Impostah, but i don't think you'll be able to get your EV data that way. if someone else knows how, i'd like to know how too, PM us if necessary!
