Old phone...old thread, I know...

I did not develop this menu nor can I post it here but you will be able to find it by googling for LG Android Data Assistant. Cricket or another flashing forum, I believe. Then you will want to open that menu, go to Data-LG check Data service in NV mode. Then Mobile Networks and choose NV from the drop down. If your account with P+ is already active, use CDMA WS to write NAM and EVDO info and a PRL. Phone must be on, connected via USB and in Internet Connection Mode. This will allow you to write to the phone and change the MDN and MIN. Change ESN on account and drop the last number of the IMEI. Test call, BAM. Talk and text working. Still no data here. Will update once I have managed it. If only I could access *#*#4636#*#*.
EDIT: Got data working (3G) Menu>Setting>Wireless & Network Settings>Mobile Networks>System Select>CDMA Only; Phone will reboot; Enter Settings again up to Mobile Networks and change global data roaming to be for all trips. Check your network type and strength then test by opening web page. 1X may be there for a moment but after the handshakes settle through the system your 3G should be active!! WOOT! 3 day project, DONE!
Yeah yeah...I KNOW that this is an old thread and old phone, but some who wish to pick up a decently cheap phone to get onto PagePlus, this is pretty good.
I've done a few of these already and it's really not all that hard.
I only came across this thread and just wanted to say that the above instructions are indeed correct and people don't need to ask anymore about this phone. Just follow the instructions that are posted above and you're good. Take care guys.
Please press the THANKS button if I or anyone has helped you out...
