Just load a Touchwiz Rom? Or do I need to update the Radios as well?
Can I Just flash the latest ND8?
Current baseband version: L710VPBLJ7
Didn't see any info on here on how to get it back to sprint, only how to take it away.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hey i used to work for Sprint last year, if you try and flash ur phone back to sprint they still wont take it for repair, this is because once a sprint phone is flashed out the ESN number is no longer valid on sprint network, even if u try and use the original esn(meid or whatever), when a rep at sprint store tries to enter the esn when they make a ticket it will come up as invalid, ive come across this before working at sprint, once a phone has been flashed out of sprint no matter what you do even if u try and flash it back it will not work on the network, Now depending on how long you have had it you could try and contacting samsung about it, or take it to a local repair shop and see how much they charge for it, most of the time when the power button goes its pretty easy to fix.
