    So I found the Pre is using similar hash codes to the Treo. ##DATA# takes you to some network settings and if you press the "Menu" button in the lower right corner you have a choice of:

    Browser
    MMSC URL
    Multimedia
    Advanced
    Restore

    Press "Advanced" takes you to a menu that I suspect will lead to enabling NAI. Once again you're gonna need your MSL number.

    I'm gonna work on this a bit and see what I can come up with..

    Now that I slept I know what your talking about. I tried to get the guy to give me my MSL but he wouldn't. I will have to call it in later today.

    For those of us new to Sprint, can you explain a little further?

    In order to tether your laptop you have to enable NAI (Network Access Identifier) this is used to identifying users who request access to a network.

    Usually you need a hack or enable this through a menu. In order to get to the programming menus you use hash codes. Hash codes bring up these special network menus. It appears the Pre uses common hash codes to the Treo.

    Enter ##3282# on your keypad in phone mode and you'll see what I mean. That menu is chuck full of settings. ##786# is the phone information menu and on the Pre allows you to reset it.

    Will they actually give you the MSL over the phone? Do I just call *2? Is there something special to say?

    Another standard code that doesn't do much on the pre is: ##EVDO# (##3826#)

    The other codes posted are known as ##DATA# (##3282#) and ##RTN# (##786#)

    These codes have been around sprint phones for a LONG time (well evdo, since evdo came out)

    and if you get your MSL somehow.. ##MSL# is how you normally manually program a phone which has some other useful settings in it. With the pre rumored to not have manual activation, I'm curious what is in the MSL Menu.

    ##MSL# doesn't work on the Pre I suspect it is because ##DATA# includes all the settings of provisioning and more.

    When you say enable NAI, is there a way to know when it's enabled? Reason I ask is because when I go to Device Info and then click on the More info button, at the very bottom I see a section for NAI which lists my sprintpcs.com email address. Wondering if this means anything?

    I can't believe I forgot to mention ##DEBUG# (##33284#). Another code that has been around for ever. This screen shows many useful items including signal strength which is RSSI value. this value is in db, so a "smaller" number is better. (-94 is stronger than -100).

    Looking through it you actually have values called rx and tx power (in dbm). not sure what the difference between those and rssi value is.

    I may be wrong, but I think you can get your msl# by dialing ##671648#. This is how a sprint tech talked me through configuration after porting my number.

    would they change you msl when you get a new phone? I have my msl from the instink that I traded up from but will that be of use to me with my Pre?

    That IS the MSL number. You can access the MDN/MSID edit options by entering ## Your_MSL # as well...

    Hehe... That's either your msl # or a temp msl.

    NAI will only make it possible to tether without a PAM plan. You won't be any closer to actually getting the phone itself to tether.

    Just called and asked for my MSL over the phone and they were a bit hesitant, but gave it me.

    He asked why I wanted it and I said I need to do a total data reset. He asked if I was a store rep, and I said no....long pause and he said here it is ....
