I have read through the entire thread at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1696621 which has helped me a lot. I noticed not suppose to ask help on that thread so I figured I start one here and you may delete my post I made on that thread.

I have a Verizon Nexus SCH-i515 I would like to get working on PagePlus. I currently have talk/text working, but no 3g. I have Verizon Paranoid Android rom, sprint FC12 CDMA radio. Using PRL 52874 provided OTA *22800.

I tried using the script for ets that AutoPrime provided on the mentioned thread above, but I do not know the HA, AAA, or Akey. I do not know how to obtain these settings. I'm assuming this is why I can't get 3g working.

I have a Droid RAZR Maxx flashed to PagePlus and I didn't need any of these settings. It was basically ##PROGRAM, set MDN, MIN, and SID, then use CDMA workshop or DFS, set EVDO to rev.a, and disable R-UIM by setting to NV only.. power on, *#*#INFO#*#* change to CDMA Auto (PRL), done.. so I don't know how to get these AAA,HA, or akey from.

Reading around some people are getting these settings from donors, but I don't have an actual PagePlus phone. If anyone can help me I'd be very happy and greatly appreciated.

Back to reading the mentioned thread above for the 5th time, see if I missed something. Thanks!

OK, seems everything I read says I need a donor phone. Can anyone tell me why I didn't need this when putting razr on page plus? Did it get all the info ota? Guess I'll have to dig up my LG dare to use as a donor, if I can.

Is it possible to swap razr and nexus esn, get the info then swap back?

AAA, HA, Akey backup??

Ok, swapped phones, now I need to find how to get Akey, AAA, and HA from the Verizon RAZR maxx... in DFS > programming > general > cave > get reports A_Key cps-error bad-param
ssd-a cps-error bad-param
ssd-b cps-error bad-param

Now under DFS > NV > read
I get 466, 580, 889, 906, 920,1192 cps-error bad-param

So this phone has 3g and works but no akey, aaa, or ha?

Is there a way to record a log of an ota on the razr maxx to get HA AAA and akey?

Also is there a way to log the nexus trying to connect to see the error message?

Razr keys

Stop trying to get the keys from the Razr; they won't help. The only AAA and HA etc. info. that will help you is that of a phone that has been activated with working 3G on Page Plus. The Razr is most likely locked up (as for the NV items), so if you think you need the 3G data, go for a cheap, easily accessible phone (LG Vortex, pretty much any Samsung, etc.).

I can live with 1x on Page Plus with my Gnex, but I don't use data that much. You get very little data on PP anyway.

Use Autoprime's script for P+, then go in and use "NV Manager" with ETS (just to be super sure everything is as it should be--I think the script put my MDN where my MSID should be actually). This got me 1x, talk and text.

I'm happy.

God Bless!

My RAZR maxx is on page plus with full working 3g,talk,text.. that's why I thought it would work if I swapped gnex esn to the razr, activated it, then tried to get HA/AAA then switch back.. but couldn't get them.. Did you use a donor to get 1x? What radios, rom, and prl are you using? The script for P+ requires HA/AAA ,well could be blocked off with /// but thought these were needed.

I do have a Verizon LG Dare somewhere if I can find it, could use it as a donor. Problem is finding it.

HA AAA passwords no donor

Well I've been changing so many settings that probably never needed changed. Going through every setting in ets seeing what does what. After changing some settings and pulling down some OTA via *22800 I have been able to get HA and AAA passwords without a donor. I still have no 3g data though.

Plugging phone number, HA, and AAA into AutoPrime's ets script still does not get me 1x or 3g data on pageplus. So there is still something missing on his script, something wrong on script, or maybe my phone is just glitched.

I did read somewhere that Nexus on pageplus should use profile 0, I noticed in AutoPrime's script he changes profile 1 settings. Maybe I'll try changing these around or something.

try flashing a radio thats actually for your phone if it will even work anymore after flashing one not intended for it.

I can flash Verizon radio but its not programmable. Will settings stay? Ill try that I just wrote all values to profile 0 and 1.. set 0 active no data, set 1 active no data..

My ha pass is only 9... script says 16.. should I add some 0's to the end to make it 16?

HA AAA passwords no donor

As I thought tossed on Verizon radio, settings reverted back to what SIM was programmed for. So I tossed in a blank SIM, mdn, min, etc all 0's and not changable.. so tossing Sprint radio back on unless someone knows of a Verizon radio that will accept changes.

How long and difficult is this process? I'm mulling over whether I'm gonna pay someone to do this or not. Romming is one thing but this flashing might be over my head.

Well if there was a guide it'd be pretty easy, but with no guide and over thousands of setting combinations, I'm just doing trial and error..

I don't think anyone at all has a Nexus on pageplus fully working.. Using a donor or not.. No one has said anything in any of the forums I read or youtube, so guessing that no one has it working. Guy above says he has 1x on pageplus, but I can't even get that, and I think he is the only one. All I have is talk/text working flawless..

There has been about 2 people that say they have the Nexus fully flashed to cricket.. but I have not attempted that as I'd rather have pageplus. If I can't get pageplus I may look into cricket and compare their speedtests with virgin mobile and flash to one of them. I have donors for VM.

Gotcha. I just picked up a Sprint Gnex, literally minutes ago,lol. It was 125, so i couldn't pass it up. From what i gather it is easier than the verizon gnex.

Yeah Sprint Nexus is a little easier as you don't have to worry about radios, your stock radios allow programming. And since you are already Sprint you don't need to flash a sprint rom to access some on phone programming menus.

alphahere has a Sprint GNex fully working on Page Plus. These are the steps he took to get it working.
1) Had a donor phone - HTC incredible, cloned all values needed to the Sprint Galaxy Nexus.
2) Modified the verizon script using the values from the HCT incredible.
3) Ran the script with ETS
4) Lastly did over the air programming with verizon (pageplus).
5) Modified the APN to work for verizon mms.
I suspect you are having the same problem I'm having. I just flashed a Sprint GNex to Page Plus a few days ago. However 3G data is not working because I used a Droid X as the donor and as I have learned in the last couple of days Motorola has their phones locked up pretty tight. I'm unable to pull the NV items needed to obtain the HA/AAA/PPP keys.

In the next few days I'm going to try and find a cheap LG or Samsung phone and use that as the donor instead.

If you are using a Verizon ROM there's a patch you need to apply. Check this post.

On a scale of 1 to 10 with romming/rooting being a five what would you guys rate flashing a Sprint gnex to page plus.

On the GNex romming/rooting is a 1. Flashing a Sprint GNex is a 5 (autoprime's ETS instructions and scripts make it easy) and pulling the data you need from a donor phone can be a 5-10 depending on which phone you use as the donor.

Once you go through the process once though it's pretty easy.

Sweet. I might give it a try. Will me Samsung Fascinate work as a donor for my Sprint gnex?
