1. First buy a Straight Talk for walley world .com get the LG220.
(Its $45 with one month unlimited everything with free shipping.)

2.Then activate it .

3.Download the drivers for the Samsung Fascinate SCH-I500 making sure you get 32 bit or 64 bit which ever machine have it installed.

4.Download DFS you have to ativate the software though their site after you install it.

5.You will need to put the http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1209992


6.Then dial **87284 put both options in modem mode

7.When plug the phone in it should tell you its found new hardware and ask for drivers

8.Then run DFS

9.Go manager in DFS your Samsung Fascinate SCH-I500 should show up select it
(sometimes you need to put the phone in dial mode dial **33284 then enter 000000 in the block for SPC)I think.

10.Then you will need the password to unlock the SCH-I500 its a 16 digit number you can find it online

11.Enter it in the PWD block at the top of DFS program it will tell you its unlocked.

12.Then read the phone write the ESN down just in case want put back.

13.Then enter the 20 digit number that on your straight talk green card enter it in the MIED block

14.Hit write it will do it real quick

15.Then hit reset from the reset from DFS

16.OK to active it might try to dial Verizon if activate and the Emergency buttons are at the bottom hit the Emergency *#83786633 then dial *22890 it will program

17.OK then dial *22891 to update roaming

18.Set up a gmail account then market and the internet will work.

Good luck

Factory Data Reset
You have hit *#22745927 then enter 000000 in the SPC code to enable the hidden menu's
Before you dial *22890 to activate dial *#7780#-Factory Data Reset you will lose your apps but it will fix alot of problems like not getting 3G or not be able to surf!!!

Hey, I followed your instructions exactly, but in the end my phone only has texting capability, no calling or data. What's wrong?

Nice work, but I have two NooB questions:
1 will this work on a fascinate with a bad ESN, or blacklisted ESN on Verizon.
2. What is DFS "Download DFS you have to ativate the software though their site after you install it."

Thanks!

When you write the MEID from the ST phone to your Fascinate, it'll change the ESN too. DFS is the program you'll need to change the MEID, this video ( www[DOT]youtube[DOT]com/watch?v=bOC13wkGlvQ ) will show you how and you can get the software for $10 bucks from that guy.

When mine was doing that, it was cuz it wasn't reaching the Verizon activation servers because I did it about 1230 am Central time, and their servers go down for maintenance then. Try it in the middle of the day. Also, are you using an MEID from a deactivated phone? It can't be activated until AFTER you write it to the Fascinate. And also, you need an Unlimited Plan, or it won't work right.
