Hey so I'm supposed to get my esn added to metro first ?
Sent from my Droid using DroidForums App
You dont have to add the ESN before flashing the phone. Im thinking something messed up when you originally flashed the first PRL.
What I recommend before going any farther is to reflash the original "stock" sbf file.
Get the file from here Peter Alfonso (its the FRG22D file for 2.2.
Then use RSD lite to flash it to your phone (if you dont have it you can grab it from HERE and follow the directions)
That will put your phone back to the original state that it was when it was first retailed(of course updated)
Then, try flashing the PRL again with CDMA WS. MAKE SURE ITS THE RIGHT PRL AND YOU DONT MISS A STEP. I say it in all caps because it is very crucial and REALLY easy to screw up if you dont follow the guides to the "T".
Let me know what happens.
If you want to try the QPST way first,
Connect your Droid to QPST.
Read from phone.
Enter SPC (default 000000)
Go to the "Roam" tab
Where it says browse on the bottom, select the prl for Metro(2001.prl)
Then hit write to phone and the phone will reboot after it writes and you should be on Metros network.

Not to sure if the basebands are the same. You might wanna check it out. If not then I would do a google search for the 2.2.1 sbf file, but I think it should work.
Yes the "T" is reffering to the actual letter "T" on the slide out keyboard.
And yes you have to root again.
I followed your steps and I get the welcome to metropcs message. It tells me to diala metro number for assistance. AWESOME

Once you add the esn you just dial *228 and add the phone to your account. Or if you know your MDN, MIN, and System ID(after u add the ESN) dial ##PROGRAM, hit call, enter SPC(000000), and go to User Activation and add it yourself. But, the automated programming(*228) does it for you.
You'll have basic talk/text
To get the internet and mms is a whole different ball game.lol
