here's what i did THIS time:
i bought another Pre2, as a backup in case i drop the one I'm using.
Of course, i had to activate it to get this app catalog certificate updated before next week.
So I pulled the comm board from my current FrankenPre2 (on sprint), put it in the new Pre2, ran the appropriate GSM unlocked meta-doctor, and used it for the day. It works fine, ok great.
So I pulled the comm board out, put it into its original Pre-, ran the OEM Dr., activated and used the Update Network Settings and update PRL, to confirm the board was current. Activated fine, Pre- still works fine.
Then I pulled the comm board out, and put it back into the FrankenPre2 which had been in airplane mode since I removed it. I expected to just plug back in and be up and running.
which it is...SORTA. AND HERE'S WHAT I NEED HELP ON:
It doesn't say "Sprint" as the carrier in top left.
I've got full bars and EV icon.
I can make calls, I can get on the web, i'm using free tether right now to type this on my PC.
##(myMSL) shows the correct phone number and msid. All the data looks right in ##786 and ##DATA
I've logged into my Palm profile thru the Backup app no problem. It backed up too.
I've gone into Impostah and completed the Activation successfully. It shows device profile, it shows palm profile. The app cat has pay items and has my card info.
but somehow the phone doesn't know it's connected. So when i make a call and then hang up, it displays the "call dropped" message.
DO I HAVE TO RUN THE METADOCTOR AGAIN, and lose all my apps and patches i've installed? or is there a way to make the phone realize duh, the phone IS working and connected to the Sprint network??
