Ok, so you have a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3, [SPH-L710] and you want to Flash it to Page Plus?
[I'm assuming this will work for ANY carrier, but we all know what assuming does...]

Take it to dealer and have the MEID activated.

Flash the PRL of carrier you want to switch to, restart phone.
You'll also need to change the SPC on the Phone to 000000

Here's the trick, you need another phone with the dial pad open and ready.
hold the other phones speaker to the mic of the S3
Dial *228 on the S3 you want activated.
When it asks you to press 1, press one on the other phone,
The S3 will hear the dial, and proceed to program it for you.

[Back in the day if you recorded the tones that were made from a payphone after paying, you could play it back,, it would hear the dial, and think you paid, when you didn't]

Now Flash a correct PRL [I have provided a copy I used for Page Plus]
No Roaming Signal
CDMA - EvDo Rev.A

Blam, it works.

Nice work. Finally someone kind and honest enough to share their method.

Knowledge should be free and shared, in my opinion!

Am I correct in assuming that the 2nd phone needs to be a 3G only phone that is currently activated on Page Plus?

This method works sometimes .... But you have to remember not everything gets programmed OTA ...

I use to be on Page Plus. I sent my old Droid 4 to Beigephone in Texas and they did all the programming for me for like $60. Then shipped the phone back to me. It was perfect and flawless. Nice to know how to do it on our own though. Thanks for the great overview.
