    Hey,

    I just bought a used pre for my wife and I cant get it activated. Sprints closed, so I cant call them. I know the ESN is clear - i called and got it transfered before they closed. My issue is it says it can connect to the internet. It keeps giving me a 'sign in failed' when I try to create a profile.

    So, my question is, do any of you know how to get into the pre system and make sure it actually has the right number? I knw with other phones you can do ##2 and it will let you make sure the # is right.

    Any advice?

    You could always use a "meta-doctor" to bypass the activation just to skip it

    ##786# and find the menu for resetting the phone. Reset it, and then enter the palm profile. I just had to do this for a used Pre I bought for my son.

    That would be your MSL you need to call Sprint to get that...
    I don't think CDMA workshop would work on a Pre in that situation
