I prefer using the NV Item method with CDMA NV-Items Reader Writer, offered free from CDMA-Ware.
(Credits for this go to tehjolly81 for his PagePlus guide to connect phone)
1) With the phone off, do the three-finger salute (hold Volume Up and Down and Power to boot) and boot into BP Tools mode (looks just like normal boot).
2) Now connect phone to PC via USB cable. If you are on Win7 x64 like me, Windows should find 4 new devices but won't have the drivers to install any of them. If prompted to install anything by Windows, (i.e., Add New Hardware Wizard, etc) cancel out of it.
3) Click 'Start' -> right click on 'Computer' and choose 'Properties'. Click on 'Device Manager' on the left. Here you should see 4 items from the phone that are missing a driver (they will have a yellow question mark next to them).
4) One of the items with a question mark should be labeled something similar to "QC Interface" (NOT the NMEA interface). Right click on it and choose Update Driver Software. Now choose Browse my computer for driver software -> Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer -> Show all devices -> Motorola -> Motorola QC Diag Port. Finish running through the wizard and it should install the correct driver. After installed, it should show the COM Port # that the diagnostic interface is installed on under the "Ports (COM & LPT)" section of Device Manager.
After getting the QC Interface and getting a com port, just download the free NV-Items reader writer from Here
Unrar the exe and run it;
1: Select the com port of your phone and hit connect
2: Press read at the top, bottom should say this: Log message: > SPC is correct. Phone unlocked
3: In Range (Dec): put 8322 in the left box 8323 in the right box and hit read; it will prompt to save as a text file.
4: Open the file and change the first 01 to 00 under the 8322 section DO NOT MODIFY 8323. Save the changes.
5: Tap Write and select the saved text file, it should show Writing NV-items from a file: Done at the bottom.
6: Tap Mode > Reset then tap Disconnect and close the program, GSM should work fine after that.
I find this method easier and less dangerous than the Radiocomm method.
This is *IF* you want to use Straight Talk's GSM BYOP, they DO offer CDMA BYOP now, which then should just activate like a normal Verizon phone after you buy their network code and activate the MEID with them.
I think I know, I don't think I know, I don't think think I know, I don't think I think.
Just hit thanks if I did something for it.
