    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
    I don't think this will work. I've been fooling around with it and instead of installing a modem like you would with a centro the pre adds a new network adapter which doesn't get a com port. It was a good try though.

    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.
    I have tried this on xp and vista and every time I try to "read" the phone it says failed connection. I have the RNDIS ethernet driver installed and I don't know why it doesn't work.

    Just got my MSL. It was extra easy. No hassle from Sprint (and the lady sounded good. Lol). Internet browsing does seem a little faster. Thanks OP. I would hit the "Thanks" button but there isn't one on the mobile version.

    I called Sprint and got the MSL number with no problem.

    What do I do next? I went to Device Info on the Launcher but don't know where to start now. Can you please list the step-by-step sequence on where to enter the codes?

    Thank you.

    go to the phone app
    type ##3282#
    Click "Menu" and go to "Multimedia"
    then go to buffer size (currently at 7) click on it, it'll ask you for your Master Subsidy Lock
    Enter it, and change the number to 20

    I called Sprint and they gave me the MSL # without asking any questions... I was on the phone for less than 3 minutes with Sprint... painless and easy..

    Yeah same here.
    All I did was say "I'm trying to do a hard reset and it's asking for a Master Subsidy Lock, can I get that from you?"
    and he says hold on, then begins to tell you how to do the whole ##786# thing.
    I just cut him of and said I know how to do that.
    An he gave me it.
    That was it.

    CALL SPRINT, EXPLAIN your situation, and get them to send you an Airave. It's like having an antenna in your home, and will definitely help. It did to me.

    Search for Airave in forums.
