Hello All that read my humble and almost desperate Q , This is my first post here. On the " Howard Forums," I bought a Motorola Driod 2 for a member after a long conversation and good communication It seems that this phone will work just like a production model . It is like new $200 . I have been with Page Plus Cellular( with a great little Nokia) , which uses Verizon's towers because it is much cheaper and no contract . I need a smart phone now for internet ( work related ) and why not the best ? ( a Driod 2 , in my simple opinion ) . I was trying to do an ESN change from the nokia phone . An over the air programing attempt , failed and it said "Test Phone " . not for public use . The phone is just like a production model . but I think it needs something done to be able to register some ware else , other than Verizon it self . Howard forums was useless in helping me with my problem ( 3 posts ) later I am now here . I have read some very interesting things on this forum, Like loading a PRL program to change a carrier . I am so new to this I barely know anything about Roms . will I have extra problem because this is a test phone or is this Verizon's firm ware blocking my changing Carriers ? What do I do to get this "Test phone" programable ? a QPST ? Thank you . Alex .
