Ok folks. If you are like me, you searched all over the web didnt find a definitive answer on how to go about getting your HTC rezound to Pageplus.

I bought a used Rezound. It came with NO Verizon SIM card. No software updates to it. I read a lot, sounded like getting to the latest stock was a good idea as it usually fixes issues. Well, I promptly updated to the leaked global ICS rom. Go the rom from android police dated Aug 15.

So my rezound had locked stock global ICS rom, no SIM card. Here is how i flashed it to pageplus. Please follow the steps as mentioned, as i have stumbled too many times and got it working.
================================
Not a must but...

1. Dont upgrade your phone to ICS rom if you dont want to root your phone. As ICS blocks APN updates. Meaning if you need 3g on pageplus or any other carrier and you dont want to root your phone, dont upgrade. If you dont mind rooting your phone, you can just ignore this warning.

Requirements:
MIN and MDN Information:
You can get MIN and MDN by calling pageplus or follow steps below.

goto http://www.kittywireless.com/pageplus/phonestatusform.html
right at the bottom you can enter email and phone number. You will get an email with MIN and MDN information.

OS Requirement:

Windows 7 64bit or 32bit. No support for Linux, Mac or XP(??).

Software you will need:

1. HTC Sync http://www.htc.com/us/support/htc-rezound-verizon/software-updates.
2. HTC Diag drivers. You can download from below.
3. QPST. http://conflipper.com/Software/QPST_2.7_366.rar
4. CDMA Workshop. You need the full version. Demo is not useful. There is an old 2.7 cracked version floating around in the web. That will do the job.

Steps to follow:

1. Install HTC Sync. This software will install HTC Sync and HTC Drivers. All you are looking for is HTC Drivers. So, as soon as installation is complete you can uninstall HTC Sync alone. They have seperate uninstallers.

2. Install HTC Diag drivers. Now, i hope you have access to Windows 7. These drivers didnt install in XP for me. it could work for you.
This step is crucial, without these drivers installed you wont be able to do anything.
i. Connect your phone to PC.
ii. Just leave it on charge mode. The HTC drivers you installed in previous step should recognize the phone.
iii. Goto the dialer in phone. dial ##3424. press call. This should put the phone in DM mode.
iv. Win 7 will try to find the drivers and fail. If you open the device manager (or short cut just run devmgmt.msc), you should see the
2 devices with no drivers. HTC DIAG and HTC DIAG 9K.
v. double click on HTC Diag and click upgrade drivers. You need to manually upgrade the drivers..
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=697487 This guide does a very good job. I dont want to repeat it. You can look at it if you are stuck. Just look at the driver installation part alone.

vi. Just ignore the HTC Diag 9k for now.

3. You have done a major step already. (I got stuck on step 2 for quiet sometime.). Install cdma workshop(CDMAWS). This software will trip anti-virus software(AV). So, just turn-off AV( or add CDMAWS in your AV's exclusion list). Apparently CDMAWS does use the virus technique to work but it is not malicious.
i. connect the phone to PC and dial ##3424 for DM mode. Find out which COM port your phone is using to connect.
ii. start CDMAWS. Select the COM port you phone uses. click connect. These should be in the topline of the GUI.
iii. if you are connected. The status bar at the bottom of window should indicate it. If everything is fine, click read(it should be next to connect/disconnect button). If everything is working so far, lots of empty spaces will be populated with data.
iv. switch to the Security tab. look for a spc button. enter "000000" in the text box above it(dont include quotes). This is the password for EPST. click spc -> spc send. you should see a pop-up saying phone unlocked. (if you are using this guide for Sprint phones, you need to obtain this password). Verizon just leaves it unlocked.
v. goto 'other' tab. look for RU-IM. click on the drop-down box. Select "NV-only". This option will be present only in full version.
vi. if you have not downloaded the attachment on this post, do it now. Now focus your attention on PRL box in the same tab as in step v.
PRL stands for preferred raoming list. I have attached 2 prl files. For me the 51720-evdo.prl gave roaming sign. I used 52711.prl, it worked fine. Click on write and choose 52711.prl from you download directory. It should write, the information to your phone.
vii. next switch to NAM tab. Enter the MIN you got from the email you got from kitty wireless (link is provided above). You can also get that info from pageplus by calling. MDN is nothing but your cell number. Enter that in dir or directory text box. click write.

4. you are done with CDMAWS. you can reboot your phone. At this point, if you havent changed ESN with pageplus do so now. You can do ESN change through online chat at pageplus website. It is free.

5. If you see roaming sign on your rezound, you need to use a different PRL. Roaming is indicated by a small triangle above the signal bars. start CDMAWS and select a different PRL file to write to your phone(steps 3(i) - 3(vi)). If everything is fine, from you rezound, call *22890 to program your phone. You can also use *22801 to program. if after a short pause it says unable to program your phone. It failed to program. Make sure you followed all the steps. If after a long pause it says unable to program. you have succeeded in getting the phone registered with pageplus. Now you should have your phone working for Voice and SMS/texting.

6. Take a deep breath and pat yourself, you have achieved a major step. Now to program 3g part. As i said before, if you are having locked stock ICS rom, you wont be able to go further. ICS doesn't let changing APNs. GB is fine with changing APNs. I havent rooted my ICS. i am just happy with a working Voice and SMS for my needs. Wifi satisfies my need.

7. Fire up QPST configuration.

i. Click on "Add New Port..." Select the port your device is on. It should be same as in CDMAWS.
ii. On the next screen highlight your device.
iii. Click on "Start Clients--Service Programming"
iv. Click 'Read From phone" When the prompt pops up click "OK"
v. Now tab over to "M.IP"
vi. In the drop down below that says simple ip+Mobi change that to "Simple IP"
vii. Now double click on "Profile 2"
viii.In the "NAI" section put your phone [email protected]
ix. In the "tetheredNAI" section put your phone [email protected]
x. For the IP Address put 255 all the way across for the last two sections and leave the 0's in the first section and Click OK
xi. Now click on "PPP config"
xii. Click "Um"
xiii. In the box that says "User ID", Enter your phone [email protected]
xiv. Click in the box that says "Tethered NAI", Enter your phone [email protected]
xv. Click in the box that says "Password", Enter "vzw"
xvi. Click the "AN" tab, User ID is your phone [email protected] and Password is "vzw"
xvii. Click "write to phone"

8. Power your phone down then reboot it.

9. i. Connect to wifi
ii. Open market
iii. Search for "APN Backup and Restore" and install. If you have GB, this will work on it own. Now if you have a rooted ICS, you can use Titanium Backup pro to run this system app. ICS allows system apps to modify APNs.
iv. Open APN and click Backup APN's
v. Now put your phone in "airplane mode"
vi. Click "delete apn's"
vii. Click "restore apn"
viii. Select page plus apn from below
ix. Disable Airplane Mode
x. Reboot
And thats it your fully flashed with MMS, Talk, Text, 3G


Credit goes to lots of folks. Mainly to Nevell, techwerkz, folks at howard forums and scores of others who are not mentioned.


Hope this helps a few folks.

I got 3G data working on stock ICS 4.0.3.605.1
To make it work you need to write all necessary settings to the 9K port as well. The tricky part is that QPST will not work and you have to use full paid version of CDMA Workshop or DFS (free version is ok) instead.

Repeat steps 3 and 4 of javamaan's guide for port 9k and use DFS for step 7.
Go to Programming/Data. Fill all fields in PAP, PPP, HDR AN, HDR AN Long and HDR AN PPP boxes. Set HDR SCP force AT config to RevA_MFPA. Uncheck eHRPD enabled. Go to Mobile IP and set NAI to [email protected].
When writing, make sure that it actually writes the data. Enable full logging and see if green "nv item written ok" messages appear. Ignore offline-d errors.
For more detailed instructions, see this cricket flashing guide.

You also need to have any sim card inserted to enable Mobile network Off/On switch in settings and get rid of the annoying message on the lock screen.

APN settings have no effect in CDMA mode. I've never touched APN menu and data works just fine.
The only thing it might be necessary is MMS, but I've never bothered to set it up.

Hello all,

For the life of me, I can't get sms or 3g to work. I've gone over this tutorial over and backwards and even did the cricket tut.
My rezound is on GB. I downgraded it with the official, stock, OTA or what ever you want to call it GB. I'm rooted but not custom ROM. I just got rid of the bloatware.
I have PPC service. Thanks, that part was great! There is a "write" line missing in the RU IM part, but I figured it out. Voice and simple text work but no sms. I even copied my wife's apn from her cell, but still, no go.

OK, done with my rant. Just had to let it out. So my steps:
in QPST - wrote everything to 8K as stated above, to the "t"
-I did come up with an error, but checked it in DFS and everything was there.
in DFS - wrote everything to 9k as stated above, to the "t"

Found the apn file from another thread because it is missing in this one. Did a restore, and.....nothing.
Found the apn settings from another site and entered it in manually......nothing.
Copied my wife's apn settings...nothing.
Made myself a drink...at least I have a good buzz going...check my phone...nothing...DOHHH!

What do I do now???

Cheers!

Hello all,
For the life of me, I can't get sms or 3g to work.

As already mentioned above, forget about the APNs! They are not used for CDMA mode (except MMS). Until you have 3G data, just leave the default VZWINTERNET APN as it is.

You don't need to downgrade to GingerBread. I've done everything on ICS 4.0.3.605.1, but 4.0.3.605.2 should work as well.

Make sure you've actually written everything to both ports. Especially 9K port. Read back and check if all values are there (except passwords that can't be read). Read PRL and make sure that version is 51720.

Post your screenshots of DFS after you read the data (NAM/PRL, Data and MobileIP pages).

Well, I was able to get it to work. I put ics back on, updated to one of the newer prl's and put a sim chip. I'm not sure what did the trick, but my bet is on the chip. note* I used an old at&t sim chip that I had laying around. I still get the warning on the lock scene, but that doesn't bother me. Thanks again to those who made these tuts.
Cheers

Im getting close to getting my Rez up on PP,... (deleted)

EDIT: Thanks so much for this thread, Im well on my way, with a few bumps along the way while I learn the software and phone. was stuck at step 5 til I realized you did the programming and dont need the #22890. with or w/o my new sim, I can make & receive calls/texts. Im barred from the ota programming by the phone.
Now I'm figuring out qpst as to why it doesnt show profile 2, just a single profile (0). So I dont know if I should modify that profile 0... And I need to get rid of the error message re the 4g activation. So i'm a little ways from having any data functioning... going to bed, sleepy and cross-eyed...

"Activating your phone..."

In the lock screen, how do you remove the irritating "Activating your phone..." message. I have everything working except MMS, but I don't care about it, I just want the stupid notification gone.

I also have an LTE card installed. I had remotesquaD flash it for me...

Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and first thing I want to do is thank everyone for their time and effort of putting the useful information on this forum! Also thanks to javamaan, I have been able to activate my HTC Rezound (previously on Verizon) on PagePlus. I have the following working: Talk, TXT, MMS, and 1X data. But no matter what I do, (spent over a week on this now, no kidding) I can't get 3G working.

I have the original Verizon 4GLTE sim card installed.
I am S-OFF, rooted, running leaked android 4.0.3 (4.03.605.3). (QPST is only good for 8K port)
I use mostly CDMAWS 3.8.7 demo and DFS 4.0.0.5 to manipulate data.
I write same data values to 8K and 9K ports, to NAM1 and NAM2.
Could it have something to do with HA and AAA shared secret values? some say leave it blank, some say 'vzw' (in hex), some say need to get those off of a donor phone.....
Could it be that when writing any passwords in DFS for 9K port they don't seem to showup/stick?

Thank you!

@ Wileywold:
Step 5 is just if you get the triangle by the signal bars. *228 in any form will give you that error. I followed yura's directions and programmed for the mms and 3g using DFS.

@ snpiee:
On my phone HA is 300 and AAA is 2. Like you, I don't know if that has anything to do with programming or not. I've tried different prls and still can't get 3g to show up. I'm also stuck on 1x.

You definitely don't need a donor phone. As I recall, I did "vzw". Actually, all that Mobile IP NAI stuff is not used if "Simple IP only" is selected.
Also, someone suggested to do a software reset with 4G SIM inside after writing all values. Not sure if it really helps, but you can try.

Could it be that when writing any passwords in DFS for 9K port they don't seem to showup/stick?

Passwords don't show up when I read back after writing, so this is OK.
Check PRL version and other stuff.

Oh, I thought you finally got 3G... I will go make my DFS screenshots now, so we can compare.

I finally got it. I wrote to both 8K and 9K ports and NAM1 and NAM2. All values were the same. My prl is the most recent verizon from my area, which is 52874. Here are the screen shots.
Thanks again to yura and javamaan for their hard work!

You got 3G working now? I will compare your values to mine when I get home today....
Thanks for posting DFS screenshots!
By the way in your pics you use PrefMobileIP not SimpleIP is that correct?

Thanks for kindly sharing help here! I continue to tinker with this by lurking here and (after success with voice/texts/1x data) I'm now working on getting the 3g operating, and the dfs screen shots are very helpful. I want to upload a few for someone to see, and point me closer to my goal. Ive tried to imitate yours, but im running dfs 3.1.xxx and there are a few differences in the location of items, and labeled a bit different. I had to guess at one of the places to insert the dun info since it didnt show quite the same layout of lines/descriptions.For example, PAP has an extra line called data, while the PPP section has 1 less line , so I tried the dun line in that PAP section.

I'm very close to having this thing DONE and I never would have gotten here without great tutors right here!

BTW, What do you use to get the great screen shots to insert here in the forum?

    goto http://www.kittywireless.com/pageplus/phonestatusform.html
    right at the bottom you can enter email and phone number. You will get an email with MIN and MDN information.

    OS Requirement:

    Windows 7 64bit or 32bit. No support for Linux, Mac or XP(??).

    Software you will need:

    1. HTC Sync http://www.htc.com/us/support/htc-rezound-verizon/software-updates.
    2. HTC Diag drivers. You can download from below.
    3. QPST. http://conflipper.com/Software/QPST_2.7_366.rar
    4. CDMA Workshop. You need the full version. Demo is not useful. There is an old 2.7 cracked version floating around in the web. That will do the job.

    Steps to follow:

    1. Install HTC Sync. This software will install HTC Sync and HTC Drivers. All you are looking for is HTC Drivers. So, as soon as installation is complete you can uninstall HTC Sync alone. They have seperate uninstallers.

    2. Install HTC Diag drivers. Now, i hope you have access to Windows 7. These drivers didnt install in XP for me. it could work for you.
    This step is crucial, without these drivers installed you wont be able to do anything.
    i. Connect your phone to PC.
    ii. Just leave it on charge mode. The HTC drivers you installed in previous step should recognize the phone.
    iii. Goto the dialer in phone. dial ##3424. press call. This should put the phone in DM mode.
    iv. Win 7 will try to find the drivers and fail. If you open the device manager (or short cut just run devmgmt.msc), you should see the
    2 devices with no drivers. HTC DIAG and HTC DIAG 9K.
    v. double click on HTC Diag and click upgrade drivers. You need to manually upgrade the drivers..
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=697487 This guide does a very good job. I dont want to repeat it. You can look at it if you are stuck. Just look at the driver installation part alone.

    vi. Just ignore the HTC Diag 9k for now.

    3. You have done a major step already. (I got stuck on step 2 for quiet sometime.). Install cdma workshop(CDMAWS). This software will trip anti-virus software(AV). So, just turn-off AV( or add CDMAWS in your AV's exclusion list). Apparently CDMAWS does use the virus technique to work but it is not malicious.
    i. connect the phone to PC and dial ##3424 for DM mode. Find out which COM port your phone is using to connect.
    ii. start CDMAWS. Select the COM port you phone uses. click connect. These should be in the topline of the GUI.
    iii. if you are connected. The status bar at the bottom of window should indicate it. If everything is fine, click read(it should be next to connect/disconnect button). If everything is working so far, lots of empty spaces will be populated with data.
    iv. switch to the Security tab. look for a spc button. enter "000000" in the text box above it(dont include quotes). This is the password for EPST. click spc -> spc send. you should see a pop-up saying phone unlocked. (if you are using this guide for Sprint phones, you need to obtain this password). Verizon just leaves it unlocked.
    v. goto 'other' tab. look for RU-IM. click on the drop-down box. Select "NV-only". This option will be present only in full version.
    vi. if you have not downloaded the attachment on this post, do it now. Now focus your attention on PRL box in the same tab as in step v.
    PRL stands for preferred raoming list. I have attached 2 prl files. For me the 51720-evdo.prl gave roaming sign. I used 52711.prl, it worked fine. Click on write and choose 52711.prl from you download directory. It should write, the information to your phone.
    vii. next switch to NAM tab. Enter the MIN you got from the email you got from kitty wireless (link is provided above). You can also get that info from pageplus by calling. MDN is nothing but your cell number. Enter that in dir or directory text box. click write.

    4. you are done with CDMAWS. you can reboot your phone. At this point, if you havent changed ESN with pageplus do so now. You can do ESN change through online chat at pageplus website. It is free.

    5. If you see roaming sign on your rezound, you need to use a different PRL. Roaming is indicated by a small triangle above the signal bars. start CDMAWS and select a different PRL file to write to your phone(steps 3(i) - 3(vi)). If everything is fine, from you rezound, call *22890 to program your phone. You can also use *22801 to program. if after a short pause it says unable to program your phone. It failed to program. Make sure you followed all the steps. If after a long pause it says unable to program. you have succeeded in getting the phone registered with pageplus. Now you should have your phone working for Voice and SMS/texting.

    6. Take a deep breath and pat yourself, you have achieved a major step. Now to program 3g part. As i said before, if you are having locked stock ICS rom, you wont be able to go further. ICS doesn't let changing APNs. GB is fine with changing APNs. I havent rooted my ICS. i am just happy with a working Voice and SMS for my needs. Wifi satisfies my need.

    7. Fire up QPST configuration.

    i. Click on "Add New Port..." Select the port your device is on. It should be same as in CDMAWS.
    ii. On the next screen highlight your device.
    iii. Click on "Start Clients--Service Programming"
    iv. Click 'Read From phone" When the prompt pops up click "OK"
    v. Now tab over to "M.IP"
    vi. In the drop down below that says simple ip+Mobi change that to "Simple IP"
    vii. Now double click on "Profile 2"
    viii.In the "NAI" section put your phone [email protected]
    ix. In the "tetheredNAI" section put your phone [email protected]
    x. For the IP Address put 255 all the way across for the last two sections and leave the 0's in the first section and Click OK
    xi. Now click on "PPP config"
    xii. Click "Um"
    xiii. In the box that says "User ID", Enter your phone [email protected]
    xiv. Click in the box that says "Tethered NAI", Enter your phone [email protected]
    xv. Click in the box that says "Password", Enter "vzw"
    xvi. Click the "AN" tab, User ID is your phone [email protected] and Password is "vzw"
    xvii. Click "write to phone"

    8. Power your phone down then reboot it.

    9. i. Connect to wifi
    ii. Open market
    iii. Search for "APN Backup and Restore" and install. If you have GB, this will work on it own. Now if you have a rooted ICS, you can use Titanium Backup pro to run this system app. ICS allows system apps to modify APNs.
    iv. Open APN and click Backup APN's
    v. Now put your phone in "airplane mode"
    vi. Click "delete apn's"
    vii. Click "restore apn"
    viii. Select page plus apn from below
    ix. Disable Airplane Mode
    x. Reboot
    And thats it your fully flashed with MMS, Talk, Text, 3G


    Credit goes to lots of folks. Mainly to Nevell, techwerkz, folks at howard forums and scores of others who are not mentioned.


    Hope this helps a few folks.

    I finally got it. I wrote to both 8K and 9K ports and NAM1 and NAM2. All values were the same. My prl is the most recent verizon from my area, which is 52874. Here are the screen shots.
    Thanks again to yura and javamaan for their hard work!

    All working now... my details to success.

    For those who were in my situation and have read and re-read dozens of posts about this process... I have finally figured out a solution which in my situation, was pretty simple in the end. I have all services working well now... voice, mms, sms, and 3g data. Let me give you a little setup info and then I will give you the steps I took. I will also include screen shot of pertinent settings. I will try to be detailed so bear with me... I just hope this will help others who pass this way.

    I tried following the initial set of instructions to simply get voice & txt working. My idea was to use wifi mostly and work on the data part as time allowed. I had issues using other software to accomplish even this. I learned that when you see these instructions "look for RU-IM. click on the drop-down box. Select "NV-only," you MUST click write to actually unlock or untick something before the other settings like NAM1 would take properly. THIS WAS VERY IMPORTANT in my situation. It was not an intuitive thing for me to know.

    I used the screen shots by AsianCajun in post #18 with the same program, DFS trial version, and wham! My data started working at what I assume is 3G speed... see attached screencap. IMPORTANT NOTE... lots of folks talk about which software to use to do all of this but I can testify that the DFS trial version worked for me. However, I could NOT make the voice part work. I was getting frustrated to no end. I tried different PRLs and it was a no go... no matter what. Again, I tried duplicating the info I found in these various posts to get things working. ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE... some posts suggest that your IMSI number is something like 31016xxxxxxxxxx with the x's being your phone number. In my case this is not so. These numbers for me are comprised of 310 which is the MCC, and 00 which is the MNC and the last 10 digits being the MIN which was given to me by chatting with a PP rep. In DFS, there are two areas of settings labeled IMSI and IMSI T. In my situation, these were two separate sets of values... I do not know why but the set labeled IMSI T used numbers which I retrieved from my phone in the "about phone / settings area" of my Rezound. I assume these are specific to the handset.

    I had written everything to both 8K and 9k ports as previous posts suggested.

    Ok, at this point... I realized the thing to do would be to read the settings from my Droid Incredible (which I already had on PP) and simply try to duplicate the setting on the Rezound. DUH... yea I know... I should have done that to start with. Anyway, when I read the settings and checked them out, some interesting things were discovered. Here are the most relevant, I think:
    • When I verified the settings in my Incredible, the PRL file is not even used in Nam2. Interesting.
    • Some of the settings like IMSI, Sys Pref, and Pref Mode were different... so, I replicated what had worked in my Incredible.
    • NAM2 seemed to be irrelevant... I am not sure about this. Hopefully this will not affect me when roaming... we'll see. Maybe NAM2 was somehow setup to run data separate from voice? Again, this is new to me so I am not sure.
    • You will notice in the "data" screencap that the password fields in my Incredible had a string of odd characters in them... so I am not sure what this was all about... maybe just the way DFS read possible encryption? Regardless, note that before I got to this point, I had already written to this area on both ports with the info that AsianCajun supplied in post #18.
    • Again, worth repeating... the settings which made voice start working were taken from my Droid Incredible which I assume has no 9k port. The settings were read from one modem only. The link to my computer for DFS was a separate modem instance in device manager.
    • for your convenience, I am attaching the PRL file which I pulled from the Incredible and used in the Rezound. If this matters, I live in the western part of Tennessee.

    Good luck to all. I hope this helps someone!

    Screenshots of 9K port. I've highlighted some important items.

    I got 3G data working on stock ICS 4.0.3.605.1
    To make it work you need to write all necessary settings to the 9K port as well. The tricky part is that QPST will not work and you have to use full paid version of CDMA Workshop or DFS (free version is ok) instead.

    Repeat steps 3 and 4 of javamaan's guide for port 9k and use DFS for step 7.
    Go to Programming/Data. Fill all fields in PAP, PPP, HDR AN, HDR AN Long and HDR AN PPP boxes. Set HDR SCP force AT config to RevA_MFPA. Uncheck eHRPD enabled. Go to Mobile IP and set NAI to [email protected].
    When writing, make sure that it actually writes the data. Enable full logging and see if green "nv item written ok" messages appear. Ignore offline-d errors.
    For more detailed instructions, see this cricket flashing guide.

    You also need to have any sim card inserted to enable Mobile network Off/On switch in settings and get rid of the annoying message on the lock screen.

    APN settings have no effect in CDMA mode. I've never touched APN menu and data works just fine.
    The only thing it might be necessary is MMS, but I've never bothered to set it up.
