    its faster, its worth doing for sure, i have my screen set to turn off 1 min. and i could never get preware to load in under a min. and now it does. Thank you!

    to get my msl# i called sprint and told them i had to do a "hard reset" and she gave it up with no questions. I also asked her for my msl to my other pre "just incase" i had to do a hard reset to that phone and she gave me that one aslo.

    If we just change the buffer size but not the home agent than should we still notice an increase in speed?

    The guy told me he can't give the MSL # because it can be used to use another provider. FML.

    Got this from here

    I see some people with trouble to fnd the MSL code to boost the internet and access the phone menu
    I found an Information that help me and will help you

    This procedure is from other forum I follow it and work perfect is very easy and I add some information to facilitate the process

    1) download demo version of CDMA WORKSHOP from CDMA Service Software / ESN Changer, SPC Unlocker... (Not work on Windows Vista I tried it)

    2) Install USB Phone driver on your computer if already installed go to next step

    3) run CDMA WORKSHOP, settings at main screen on the right are as follows
    (The phone must be connected to the computer but not as Mass Storage because never will assign the COM Port) The phone can't display Connected to Computer in the Phone display.
    You need to go to Device Manager and verify COM Ports to know the correct COM Port assigned to the Phone because each computer assign different com ports. I will use com6 as example.

    com settings (AT mode)
    ---------------
    Port (com6)
    Baud rate (38400)

    com settings (DM mode)
    ---------------
    Baud rate (115200)

    4) you should now be able to hit <connect> if it was successful you'll see in status bar <connected to com6>

    5) now click <read> after a moment all your info will come up on left panel, phone # etc
    if not display the info change to another port and repeat step 4

    6) click on security tab change the right panel setting to as follows

    Passord(16 digits)
    ------------------
    samsung (default)

    7)now click send if done sucessfully you'll get a popup window saying (password successful, phone unlocked)

    8)note the number under <SPC/USER LOCK> the one that flashed red, this is your MSL number( 6 digit) and is used to access the edit function under ##data# or ##3282# menus and every other hidden menu on your phone

    Is very easy process and avoid call sprint customer services

    Good Luck

    No it is not. I use to get around 2mbs, but this month I can't get above 1mbs. In my area a few people reported a slow down with data

    Yeah, I used to have full bars at my house but for the last few days my signal dropped to anywhere between 1 and 3 bars, very strange

    I got my MSL # from calling again and talking to a different guy.


    But my real question is : If I live in San Diego, would my primary home be considered Anaheim??

    I never said it was fragile... I am just an experienced computer electronics individual and I know the power of modification.

    think about the excess strain from excess heat.

    stress tests are done for a reason at the manufacture... Think about it when your taking back a phone and I am still on my first one from the original 100 people that got one.

    The fastest way to install Preware on your WebOS device.
    Put your device in Developer mode.
    From your PC download the Preware installer from http://get.preware.org
    Run the Preware installer while the WebOS device is connected with the USB cable to your PC.
    Vualla Preware is installed.]

    it's called a Master subsidy lock...to program phones and update a few other settings as well.
    Also just wanted to throw in... Who cares if your on your first phone from the first 100 ppl. This isn't a collectors limited edition baseball card. It's a easily replacable phone don't bash him bc he wants to make it better.

    Well, if it isn't installed it won't work.

    I believe what he is talking about the Linux Ethernet/RNDIS Gadget driver.
    Which you need for USB tethering with the phone.
    That's my best guess.
